This course enables students to deepen their understanding of chemistry through the study of the properties of chemicals and chemical bonds; chemical reactions and quantitative relationships in those reactions; solutions and solubility; and atmospheric chemistry and the 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.

Overall Curriculum Expectations
- Demonstrate scientific investigation skills (related to both inquiry and research) in the four areas of skills (initiating and planning, performing and recording, analyzing and interpreting, and communicating);
- Identify and describe careers related to the fields of science understudy, and describe the contributions of scientists, including Canadians, to those fields.
- Analyze technological devices that apply the principles of the dynamics of motion, and assess the technologies’ social and environmental impact
- Investigate, in qualitative and quantitative terms, forces involved in uniform circular motion and motion in a plane, and solve related problems;
- Demonstrate an understanding of the forces involved in uniform circular motion and motion in a plane.
- Analyze, and propose ways to improve, technologies or procedures that apply principles related to energy and momentum, and assess the social and environmental impact of these technologies or procedures
- Investigate, in qualitative and quantitative terms, through laboratory inquiry or computer simulation, the relationship between the laws of conservation of energy and conservation of momentum, and solve related problems.
- Demonstrate an understanding of work, energy, momentum, and the laws of conservation of energy and conservation of momentum, in one and two dimensions.
- Analyze the operation of technologies that use gravitational, electric, or magnetic fields, and assess the technologies’ social and environmental impact;.
- Investigate, in qualitative and quantitative terms, gravitational, electric, and magnetic fields, and solve related problems
- Demonstrate an understanding of the concepts, properties, principles, and laws related to gravitational, electric, and magnetic fields and their interactions with matter
