Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course enables students to deepen their understanding of chemistry through the study of the properties of chemicals and chemical bonds; chemical reactions and quantitative relationships in those reactions; solutions and solubility; and atmospheric chemistry and the behavior of gasses. Students will further develop their analytical skills and investigate the qualitative and quantitative properties of matter, as well as the impact of some common chemical reactions on society and the environment.

 

Outline of Course Content

Unit 0: Scientific Investigation Skills & Lab Safety 

In this introductory unit, students will explore the career paths available for them as students of science.

They will also learn the fundamentals of lab safety and WHIMIS.

 

Unit 1: Metter, Chemical Trends & Chemical Bonding

Students will develop an understanding of the structure of an element that allows us to predict its physical and chemical properties. They will investigate the physical and chemical properties of compounds based on the type of chemical bond formed. The appropriate use of chemicals will be examined in order to minimize the risks to human health and the environment.

 

Unit 2: Chemical Reaction

In this unit, students will investigate different types of chemical reactions and demonstrate an understanding of the different types of chemical reactions. They will also analyze chemical reactions used in a variety of applications and assess their impact on society and the environment.

 

Unit 3: Quantities in Chemical Reaction

In this unit, students will investigate quantitative relationships in chemical reactions, and solve related problems and demonstrate an understanding of the mole concept and its significance to the quantitative analysis of chemical reactions. They will analyze processes in the home, the workplace, and the environmental sector that uses chemical quantities and calculations, and assess the importance of quantitative accuracy in industrial chemical processes.

 

Unit 4: Solutions & Solubility 

In this unit, students will investigate the qualitative and quantitative properties of solutions, solve related problems and analyse the origins and effects of water pollution, and a variety of economic, social, and environmental issues related to drinking water

 

Unit 5: Gases & Atmospheric Chemistry 

In this unit, students will investigate gas laws and explain the behavior of gases, and solve related problems. They will also analyse the cumulative effects of human activities and technologies on air quality, and describe some Canadian initiatives to reduce air pollution, including ways to reduce their footprints.
