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 must have access to a computer and the internet. Basic computer skills, like the ability to compose Word Documents and pdf files, will be very helpful.


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.
