This course will provide students with higher-order investigative experiences and activities to promote a deeper understanding of critical concepts in Chemistry. It will also help the student to develop the ability to analyze scientific literature critically and to develop manipulative and experimental skills necessary to perform college level scientific investigations. Topics include Stoichiometry, Atomic Theory, Chemical Bonding, States of Matter, Carbon Chemistry, and the Periodic Table. Students will be required to demonstrate knowledge in experimental methodology, data collection, and the interpretation of experimental data. Theory of Knowledge (TOK) concepts and global connections will be discussed and integrated throughout the course. This course is studied over a two year period.
