Introduction:

Chemistry describes the behavior of matter, at the level of atoms and molecules. Living and non-living things are made of atoms, so knowledge of Chemistry will be useful to anyone interested in Biology or other Sciences. A student MUST successfully complete Chemistry 11 before he/she will be ready for Chemistry 12.

There is NO Provincial Exam for Chemistry 11.

Recommended prerequisites:

Recent completion of Science 10 would be helpful for a Chemistry 11 student. However the most useful things to have are strong arithmetic skills and the ability to problem solve. Chemistry 11 does not contain higher level mathematics, but a student should be able to use simple equations.

Resources:

Hebden: Chemistry 11 (textbook) is required. Students are expected to supply themselves with a scientific calculator, paper, pens and pencils. You MUST have access to the internet.

Assessment:

You will be graded according to this formula:

  • Final Exam (25%)
  • Unit Tests (50%)
  • Labs (15%)
  • Assignments (10%)
Assignments and Labs

It is STRONGLY recommended that assignments and lab reports should be turned in within one week of their posted dates. For example, an assignment from Week #5 should be submitted no later than the end of Week #6.

Midterm

There is NO midterm for this course. Instead there are seven unit tests. The tests cover the following units:

  1. Lab Safety
  2. Measurements & Calculations
  3. Introduction To Chemistry
  4. Inorganic Naming,
  5. The Mole & Chemical Reactions
  6. Atomic Structure, Periodic Table & Introduction To Bonding
  7. Solutions.

Due to time constraints there will NOT be a unit test on Organic Chemistry. However, some Organic Chemistry questions will appear on the Final Exam.

On the main webpage of the course, you will find at the end of each unit a “Notice” for the unit test. This will inform you about what will be on the test.

Final Exam

The Final Exam will cover all units of the course. A review exercise will be provided.

Student Responsibilities

Students are expected to log onto the course and submit one assignment (or have contact with the instructor) each week. Students who do not log onto the course, or keep in contact with their instructor on a weekly basis, will be viewed as having withdrawn from the online course.

The instructor will then notify them that they are being withdrawn from the course. Students who withdraw from an online course are not allowed by Ministry of Education regulations to retake the same online course for two reporting periods.
