  • Welcome

    Please become familiar with this website as I will post course notes here, assignment information, test information and homework. You will also find the course outline which explains the material being covered in this course. Chemistry has a strong mathematical component and it is important to practice homework problems regularly to become more comfortable with chemical analytical analysis. I …

  • 1. Introduction
    Lab Writing
    Unit 1: Organic Chemistry
    B1. assess the social and environmental impact of organic compounds used in everyday life, and
    propose a course of action to reduce the use of compounds that are harmful to human health and the environment;
    B2. investigate organic compounds and organic chemical reactions, and use various methods to represent the compounds;
    B3. demonstrate an understanding of the structure, properties, and chemical behaviour of compounds within each class of organic compounds.
    Unit 2: Structure and Properties
    C1. assess the benefits to society and evaluate the environmental impact of products and technologies that apply principles related to the structure and properties of matter;
    C2. investigate the molecular shapes and physical properties of various types of matter;
    C3. demonstrate an understanding of atomic structure and chemical bonding, and how they relate to the physical properties of ionic, molecular, covalent network, and metallic substances
    Unit 3: Energy Changes and Rates of Reaction
    D1. analyse technologies and chemical processes that are based on energy changes, and evaluate them in terms of their efficiency and their effects on the environment;
    D2. investigate and analyse energy changes and rates of reaction in physical and chemical processes,and solve related problems;
    D3. demonstrate an understanding of energy changes and rates of reaction.
    Unit 4: Equilibrium
    E1. analyse chemical equilibrium processes, and assess their impact on biological, biochemical,
    and technological systems;
    E2. investigate the qualitative and quantitative nature of chemical systems at equilibrium, and solve related problems;
    E3. demonstrate an understanding of the concept of dynamic equilibrium and the variables that cause shifts in the equilibrium of chemical systems.
