Grade 12 Chemistry

A photo of Kaff Kaff
So I got an 84 in Grade 11 Chemistry and I really did not deserve it. My teacher was a nice guy but terrible at his job. I did not learn anything in his class whatsoever :/ When school starts next week, I may be able to recognized a few things in SCH4U - but I'm so terrified because I honestly did not take anything out of that course. I purposely made that class to appear in first semester so I can decide after midterm whether I should apply for University (I'm applying to Western for Nursing and Health Sciences). Can anyone who has taken this course give me some guidance as to what I will be exposed to and what I should know?

In SCH4U,you'll be doing organic chemistry,rates of reaction, equilibrium,acid/base

From what I remember, you will not do anything related to moles :D

Edit:I think there is more in SCH4U than I listed

There's also electrochemistry ^.

Get a tutor if you need help, one course shouldn't prevent you from applying to university!

Rates of reaction and acid/base equilibrium is somewhat related to moles and stoichiometry. Even though it's not really related, you should know it in order to get a good foundation on chemistry because the grade eleven chem concepts will keep appearing in the future.

I just did my SCH4U0 in summer school. I got the condensed curriculum and it was just taught really fast-paced... quizzes every two days; unit tests every four or five days.

For the most part, SCH3U0 and SCH4U0 have nearly nothing in common. The biggest thing we did in SCH3U0 was stoichiometry. If you have your mole ratios down pat, you should be fine, because really, that's all we learn in SCH3U0.

In SCH4U0, the major topics are:
- HEAT (you learn to put energy, in kJ, as a part of the thermochemical equation)
- RATES OF REACTION (how fast reactions occur, what influences this, etc.)
- EQUILIBRIUM SYSTEMS (how they are established, what conditions must exist, etc.)
- ELECTROCHEMISTRY (galvanic and electrolytic cells... kind of physics-ish)
- ORGANIC CHEMISTRY (naming basic organic compounds, drawing organic molecules)

My teacher gave me this fantastic site that helps you with interactive lessons and tutorials for this course. Not all the lessons are that great, but for equilibrium, rates of reaction and electrochemistry, the tutorials are great! Here's the site: http://www.wwnorton.com/college/chemistry/gilbert2/chemtours/chemtour.asp

I say try the first few days of the course. If you are feeling uncomfortable with the pace / material, get a tutor.

Happy studying!
