Description

Chemistry 11 covers matter and its changes, and its organization into pure substances and mixtures. We also look at the use of quantitative methods, such as the mole concept, molar volume of gases and molarity to predict the results of chemical changes. The course also covers the study of chemical reactions, atomic theory (periodic table and chemical bonding), solution chemistry and organic chemistry. Virtual simulations are used throughout the course.

Chemistry 11 is a lab-oriented course that includes an introduction to lab safety and measurements.  It covers matter, its changes, and the organization of substances. We also look at the use of quantitative methods, such as the mole concept, molar volume of gases and molarity to predict the results of chemical changes. The course also covers the study of chemical reactions, atomic theory (periodic table and chemical bonding), solution chemistry and organic chemistry. Pre-recorded data are used for the labs.
