Chemistry - 11

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 behaviour of gases. 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.

Prerequisite: SNC2D - Science Grade 10

Course Outline

Unit 1: Matter, Chemical Trends & Chemical Bonding (23 hours)

All matter on earth is made up of atoms of various elements.  Every element identified so far has predictable chemical and physical properties that are determined by their atomic structures.  These atoms of elements chemically bond to each other to form larger compounds.  The physical and chemical properties of these compounds are largely determined by the types of chemical bonds found between the atoms that make up compounds.  In this unit, you will learn about the chemical and physical properties of elements and how the bonds between atoms affect the properties of compounds.  You will also discover the importance and dangers of chemicals to humans and the environment around us.
