Description

Chemistry 12 – SCH4U course enables students to deepen their understanding of chemistry through the study of organic chemistry, the structure and properties of matter, energy changes and rates of reaction, equilibrium in chemical systems, and electrochemistry. Students will further develop their problem-solving and investigation skills as they investigate chemical processes, and will refine their ability to communicate scientific information. Emphasis will be placed on the importance of chemistry in everyday life and on evaluating the impact of chemical technology on the environment.

Unit Course Content and Overall Curriculum Expectations Time
1 Organic Chemistry
Students will demonstrate an understanding of how the predictable chemical and physical properties of organic compounds are determined by their respective structures. They will also assess the significant implications of organic chemical reactions and their applications for society, human health, and the environment.
18.5 hours
2 Structure and Properties of Matter
Students will demonstrate an understanding of how the nature of attractive forces that exist between particles in a substance determines the properties and limits the uses of that substance. They will also evaluate the societal benefits and costs of technological devices that are based on the principles of atomic and molecular structures.
16 hours
3 Energy Changes and Rates of Reaction/b>
Students will demonstrate an understanding of how energy changes and rates of reaction can be described quantitatively. They will investigate ways to improve the efficiency of chemical reactions by applying optimal conditions. Students will also evaluate the societal and environmental costs and benefits of technologies that transform energy.
24 hours
4 Chemical Systems and Equilibrium
Students will demonstrate an understanding of the predictable ways in which chemical systems are dynamic and respond to changing conditions. They will also assess the significant implications for nature and industry of applying chemical systems at equilibrium.
33.5 hours
5 Electrochemistry
Students will demonstrate an understanding of the predictable way in which electrons are transferred from one substance to another in oxidation and reduction reactions. They will also assess the significant implications of controlling and applying oxidation and reduction reactions for industry, health and safety, and the environment.
