Hello, students!

Welcome to 2017-2018 Honors Chemistry – this will be a new level of this class for me! What an exciting new challenge for my 25th year of teaching at MHS! I look forward to it!!!

Check back SOON to see what we are doing each day, check for upcoming due dates, and download assignments!

For this class, you will need a one inch ring binder, a Science Notebook with graph paper squares, a scientific calculator with an “EE” or “EXP” button (A TI 30 is my personal favorite!), and BOTH pens and pencils.
