Chemistry 12 is designed mainly for students who might study science, engineering, medicine, or technology at the post-secondary level. There is a supplementary exam preparation package available.
Students should ignore any reference in the course material to a Provincial Exam, as the
Ministry of Education removed this requirement in Sept 2011.
This course has an optional DVD component. A DVD player is required for viewing the resources. A scientific calculator is required. It CANNOT be programmable. The calculator must NOT have a QWERTY keyboard, nor any external devices likememory cards or a printer.
The textbook and resources for this course are:
