Chemistry 11 Bootcamp
July 7, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Tuesday and Thursday, repeating until July 30, 2020
This workshop previews grade 11 chemistry, with in-depth explanations of concepts including atomic theory, quantum mechanics, electron structure, bonding, stoichiometry, and organic chemistry. The focus is on developing a clear understanding of the concepts and on simple but effective methods to solve problems.
Previewing math and science topics before encountering them is essential; it allows students to feel prepared and confident about the material they encounter in school and to understand the shape of the course that lies ahead. Students who complete our boot camps report feeling prepared and able to do well in their classes, and often refer to the boot camp course materials throughout the school year. Attending these boot camps is fun, and our committed instructors allow students to engage in purposeful learning. Our clients love to learn, and even those who may be reveling in uninterrupted video games still want mental stimulation and a connection to academic activities. The skills needed in math and science courses build on the material from the previous grade. “Melt” is the term used by educators to refer to the material that students forget between the end of one grade and the start of the next.
In any year, it is beneficial to be exposed to math and science materials in the summer, to refresh the skills from the previous year and preview the material to come.
Options Solutions math and science boot camps meet three main needs for our clients: This year, in which some students have had no active instruction since before March break, it will be a vital refresher for the year to come.
