Last Updated: October 19th, 2014

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 curriculum for this course includes quantitative chemistry, atomic structure, periodicity, bonding, energetics, kinetics, acids and bases, equilibrium, oxidation and reduction, organic chemistry, measurement and data processing.  There will be additional topic options, which will include food chemistry and advanced organic 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 devise your own procedures and design your own experiments. 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 college level science.

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