Chemistry 20 (SCN2796)
Prerequisite: Science 10
Required for: Chemistry 30 or Science 30 (with administator’s permission). Students must have skills in basic algebra and quantitative problem solving.
This course involves the study of the following topics:
- Solutions, acids and bases
Properties of solutions, acids and bases, preparation and dilution of solutions.
Behavior and properties of gases in terms of gas laws and quantitative analysis.
Quantitative analysis of chemical reactions.
- Chemical Bonding
Forces that hold compounds together and forces of attraction between adjacent compounds.
Chemistry 30 (SCN3796)
Prerequisite: Chemistry 20
Students in this course will write an Alberta Education Diploma Exam valued at 50% of their final grade.
The concepts build on the basics of chemical reactions and stoichiometry taught in Chem-20 and involves the study of four major units:
Energy in physical and chemical reactions
- Chemical Equilibrium
Equilibrium, acids and bases involve proton transfer
- Organic Chemistry
Organic compounds as common form of matter and their reactions
