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.
