DP Chemistry HL

Prerequisite: Chemistry HL, Physics SL, Physics HL, Further Biology

Chemistry Higher Level (HL) is a course of study that will mirror a first-year principle of chemistry course at the college level. Topics that will be covered include basic scientific reasoning and experimental procedures, atomic structure and chemical bonding, reactions, stoichiometry, gas laws, kinetics, thermodynamics, equilibrium, acid/base reactions, electrochemistry, organic chemistry, and nuclear chemistry. SL and HL cover a common core syllabus, a common Internal Assessment scheme, and some overlapping elements in the options section. HL students will be required to go into greater depth of the material, to study additional topics, and to study extension material in a more demanding nature in the common options. The goals of this course will be to master the information from the IB syllabus designated for HL and to increase problem-solving and laboratory skills that would normally be asked of to complete a first year college chemistry course. For the Internal Assessment, fifty hours of documented labs along with the group 4 project in the 2nd year will be an integral part of the course.
