Grade 11 - Science
Chemistry (Credit: 1.00)Chemistry is intended to provide a more in‐depth study of matter and its interactions. In preceding years students
should have developed an understanding for the macroscopic properties of substances and been introduced to the
microstructure of substances. This chemistry course will expand upon that knowledge, further develop the
microstructure of substances and teach the symbolic and mathematical world of formulas, equations, and symbols.
The major concepts covered are measurement in chemistry, atomic structure, chemical formulas and bonding,
chemical reactions, stoichiometry, gases, chemical equilibrium, and organic chemistry. Students at this level should
show development in their ability and understanding of scientific inquiry. The units contain experiments and projects
that seek to develop a deeper conceptual meaning for the student and actively engage the student. The continued
exposure of science concepts and scientific inquiry will serve to improve the student's skill and understanding.
Chemistry should be preceded by an Algebra I course and preceded or accompanied by an Algebra II course.
