Chemistry is often called the “central science”. It is appropriate for students interested in the bio-sciences (such as medicine) and physical sciences (such as engineering). Chemistry is a wonderful course for developing your problem solving skills in the mathematical and conceptual realms.
Chemistry 11 is concerned with the identification, characterization, and transformation of matter. To develop a more comprehensive understanding of the concepts covered about 20% of the course is designated to hands on activities (labs).
Chemistry 12 is intended to further enhance the understanding of the principles of Chemistry and prepare students for studies of sciences at the post-secondary level. Due to a large number of mathematical calculations in the course, students should have a reasonably good standing in Mathematics.
