Wolf Creek Public Schools
Chemistry 30 Course Outline
Chemistry 30, a challenging course, yet one of the most fun academic courses the science program has to offer. Many skills will have real world applications for students pursuing chemistry into post-secondary.
Digital Classroom Conduct:
Students are expected to complete each lesson section and unit in a timely fashion. Students should be engaged in the lesson and should try their best on assignments prior to handing them in. If needed, students will ask their teacher for additional help and explanation of a concept.
Wolf Creek's Enhanced Learning Courses are structured differently than your typical course. In this course you will have:
*PLEASE NOTE that this year all Diploma Exam are weighted at 30% of the student’s final grade. This exam is made up of 46 multiple-choice questions and 14 numerical response questions. Students are given 2.5 hours to complete the exam.
** The weightings are subject to change based on teacher discretion
50% of in class mark
21% of in class mark
29% of in class mark
To be Successful:
1) Need to navigate this website in order to access the coursework/workspaces for each unit within the course.
2) Complete the coursework provided in each unit's Hapara Workspace. Each unit will have a workspace created for it.
a) take a picture of your work using your personal device
b) Upload the images to your drive and acquire the link to share your work.
c) Submit that link to your work in the appropriate card for that assessment.
Unit A: Thermochemical Changes (~20% of course time)
How does our society use the energy of chemical changes? What are the impacts of energy use on society and the environment? How do chemists determine how much energy will be produced or absorbed for a given chemical reaction?
Unit B: Electrochemical Changes (~30% of course time)
What is an electrochemical change? How have scientific knowledge and technological innovation been integrated into the field of electrochemistry?
Unit C: Chemical Changes of Organic Compounds (~20% of course time)
What are the common organic compounds and what is the system for naming them? How does society rely on organic compounds? How can society ensure that the technical applications of organic chemistry are assessed to ensure future quality of life and a sustainable environment?
Unit D: Chemical Equilibrium Focusing on Acid-Base Systems (~30% of course time)
What is happening in a system at equilibrium? How do scientists predict shifts in the equilibrium of a system? How do Brønsted–Lowry acids and bases illustrate equilibrium?
