IB Chemistry SL

Last Updated: UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Welcome to the IB Chemistry class website! These resources are organized by chapter for your convenience and the calendar below will contain all the important topics we cover as well as due dates.

About the Class

The core curriculum for this course includes stoichiometric relationships, atomic structure, periodicity, chemical bonding and structure, energetics and thermochemistry, chemical kinetics, equilibrium, acids and bases, redox processes and organic chemistry.  There will be one additional topic option, which will be either materials science, biochemistry, energy or medicinal chemistry.  We will be using regular laboratory exercises to discover, explore and reinforce the aforementioned content.  In addition to following traditional lab procedures, you will eventually design and carry out your own experiment. Advanced algebra skills are essential for this course, as a large amount of time will be used processing and analyzing raw lab data.  The overall goal of this course is to not only prepare you for the IB Chemistry SL exam, but to have you develop a thorough background in chemistry that can be applied to many aspects of your personal life and as a preparation for any college level science.

This course is taught using a college-level chemistry curriculum.
