Welcome to my homepage.  This webpage is designed to be a resource for both parents and students to be used throughout the year.  I will be posting power point presentations along with study guides, tutorials, and fun videos that will help students build their skills in chemistry. Below are the class descriptions and prerequisites.  

My contact email is:  kay.mork@rps205.com


Jefferson High School Rm 304
Grade Level: 10-11-12
Prerequisite: Satisfactory completion of Biology and Algebra.

Regular chemistry is a college preparatory class. It is the science concerned with the composition, structure, and properties of matter, as well as the changes it undergoes during chemical reactions. Students will be introduced to atomic theories, reaction types, basic stoichiometry, chemical kinetics, acid base reactions, thermodynamics, and chemical equilibrium. They will learn essential laboratory techniques and experimental methods. A scientific calculator is required for this class. A TI (Texas Instruments) 30 or 34 is recommended.  Graphic calculators are not required, but can be used if they already have one. 


 AP Chemistry

Jefferson High School Rm 304
Grade Level: 11-12
Prerequisite: Satisfactory completion of Regular Chemistry. Physics is highly recommended but not required.

Advanced Placement Chemistry is a freshman college level course designed for students pursuing a science related career. Through college-level AP courses, you enter a universe of knowledge that might otherwise remain unexplored in high school. Through AP Exams, you have the opportunity to earn credit or advanced standing at most of the nation's colleges and universities. There will be in depth coverage of concepts introduced in first year Chemistry along with new units on thermodynamics, quantum mechanics, acid/base equilibrium, solubility and organic chemistry. Laboratory experiments are more detailed and student directed. A strong math background is essential. Students should expect to spend a significant amount of time outside of class working on the course content in order to adequetely prepare for the AP Exam in the spring.​ A scientific calculator (TI 30/34) or graphing calculator is needed for this class
