DP Chemistry SL

Chemistry Standard Level (SL) 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 (IA) scheme, and some overlapping elements in the options section. SL students will not be required to go into as much depth of the material as the HL students. In addition, fewer topics will be given and the extension material is less demanding in the common options. The goals of this course will be to master the information from the IB syllabus designated for SL and to increase problem solving and laboratory skills that would normally be asked of to complete a first year college chemistry course. For the IA, students will be required to design and set up labs, perform them, collect data, calculate results, and evaluate post-lab data in terms of error and logical assessments of those errors. Thirty hours of documented labs along with the group IV project will be an integral part of the course.
