Prerequisite: Biology SL, Biology HL (with approval)
This course is designed to prepare the student for college chemistry by providing the student with a fundamental understanding of the composition and structure of matter and the changes it undergoes. Content from this survey course includes atomic structure, reactions, stoichiometry, gas laws, solutions, thermodynamics, organic chemistry and acid-base. Analytical thought is developed through the application of problem-solving skills to chemical computation and the use of the scientific method in laboratory investigations. Excel spreadsheet programming is introduced and used as a data analysis and graphing tool. Performing laboratory investigations and lab write-ups will be an integral part of the course. Chemistry SL will be paced faster than Chemistry Studies which will affect the breadth and depth of the course material.
