LF Chemistry is designed to introduce students to a variety of topics that are explored throughout the science curriculum at the secondary level. Specifically, this course will help to develop and improve the skills and techniques that are required to be successful in Chemistry 11 and help to build a successful foundation for students who will later pursue Chemistry 12.

The objectives of the LF Chemistry are to:

  • Improve students’ understanding of the properties and reactions of materials including those in the workplace.
  • Develop an understanding of how elements and compounds are organized and the differences between them.
  • Understand safe laboratory practices and analyze experimental data.

Students will complete 7 units which focus on the following: processes of science, matter and density, atomic theory, the periodic table, chemical formulae and bonding, organic and inorganic compounds, and chemical reactions.
