Course Description
Description: 

Chemistry 11 has been developed to promote the acquisition of knowledge and the learning of problem solving skills as related to core chemistry concepts.  The course emphasizes the application of chemistry in every day life, including skills required in the workplace, while promoting positive attitudes towards science and scientific literacy.  Activities are based on authentic experiences whenever possible.

 

Chemistry 11 has four modules and a test for each module. Several lab activities are included. Students should only attempt to perform the labs if they have access to an appropriate lab facility including approved safety related equipment and protective gear. The ability to properly and safely dispose of waste chemicals is also critical. Supervision by qualified personnel is a must. Sample lab data is provided for those students who do not have access to an appropriate facility.
