Chemistry 12 focuses on the complexities of chemical reactions. Credit in Chemistry 11 is required before enrolling in Chemistry 12. A strong background in Pre-Calculus 11 is recommended for continuing in chemistry, and it is strongly recommended that Pre-Calculus 12 be taken prior to or at the same time as Chemistry 12. A scientific calculator with two-line display is required equipment; graphing calculators are not permitted.
Topics include dynamic equilibrium of chemical reactions, solubility, the chemistry of acids and bases, and oxidation-reduction reactions. A unit on reaction kinetics is optional.
