Chemistry 20  (5 credits)

Prerequisite Recommendation:  65% or greater in Science 10.

This highly academic program is designed to study matter and its changes. This program emphasizes the context of science by considering the interrelationships among science, technology and society. Students, through the study of Chemistry 20–30, are given an opportunity to explore and understand the natural world and to become aware of the profound influence of chemistry on their lives.

The four topics covered are:

  • The Diversity of Matter and Chemical Bonding
  • Forms of Matter: Gases
  • Matter as Solutions, Acids and Bases
  • Quantitative Relationships in Chemical Changes

Laboratory work will reinforce the theoretical concepts.


Chemistry 30 (5 credits)

Prerequisite Recommendation:  65% or greater in Chemistry 20 and Math 20-1.

This highly academic program is designed to study matter and its changes. This program emphasizes the context of science by considering the interrelationships among science, technology and society. Students, through the study of Chemistry 20-30, are given an opportunity to explore and understand the natural world and to become aware of the profound influence of chemistry on their lives.

The four topics covered are:

  • Thermochemical Changes
  • Electrochemical Changes
  • Chemical Changes of Organic Compounds
  • Chemical Equilibrium Focusing on Acid-Base Systems

Laboratory work will reinforce the theoretical concepts

Note:  Completion of Chemistry 30 requires the writing of a provincial diploma examination and the course is a prerequisite for many science based programs at post-secondary institutions.
