Matter, Chemical Trends, and Chemical Bonding

firefoxThis course enables students to deepen their understanding of chemistry through the study of properties of chemicals and chemical bonds; chemical reactions and qualitative relationships in those reactions; solutions and solubility; and atmospheric chemistry and behaviour of gases. Students will further develop their analytical skills and investigate the qualitative and quantitative properties of matter, as well as the impact of some common chemical reactions on society and the environment.
