Investigating different chemistry classes

There are two options for chemistry classes at NUHS when signing up.

March 2, 2022

Maybe you have no interest in science or maybe you want to approach chemistry at a slower pace.

Being a student at NUHS gives you the opportunity to take things at your pace with two options for classes, chemistry and investigating chemistry.

NUHS science teacher Darlene Filzen has been teaching science for 32 years and teaches both chemistry and investigating chemistry. “Investigating chemistry is for students that are not looking to pursue science in their future, they are just wanting to get the credit done. Regular chemistry is for those students looking at attending a four-year college and pursuing a science degree/career. It is a college chemistry prep class,” Filzen said.

Investigating chemistry covers the same topics but is less in-depth.

There are various reasons to take investigating chemistry over chemistry. “Well, I took it because I don’t plan on attending a four-year college so I don’t see the point of doing a harder class that I would probably fail,” student Deegan Tauer said.

At the end of the day, both classes are beneficial to different students who have different motives.
