In Chemistry 11 students are introduced to the basic concepts of Chemistry. In Chemistry 12 they take a deeper look at chemical processes. By the end of the course one should have a good understanding of a number of important phenomena and technologies, such as corrosion, batteries, electroplating and acid rain. For this reason, Chemistry 12 is a prerequisite for many College, University and B.C.I.T. programs.

Recommended prerequisites:

The student MUST complete Chemistry 11 BEFORE taking Chemistry 12 – preferably with a C+ grade or better.


Hebden Chemistry 12 Workbook (textbook) is required. You are expected to have a scientific calculator.


Grades calculated as: Final Exam (30%), Unit Tests (50%), Assignments (15%), Activation Assignment (5%).

Your final grade could be adjusted upwards if you do well on the Final Exam.

Assignments – All assignments are to be sent to the teacher by email: .

Assignments can be attached as Word Documents, pdf files, rtf files, or jpegs.

Unit Tests – There are five unit tests – one for each unit.  ALL of the tests must be supervised.

Students have a choice. They can either write the tests at their home school, or they can come to room 1047 of Riverside Centre.

Final Exam – You will write a Final Exam at the end of this course. It covers all five units. Review materials are available.

Student Responsibilities

Students are expected to complete all assignments and tests. This course must be finished within the time limit.
