Welcome to Grade 12 University Prep Chemistry!

Today's world is being transformed by scientific and technological advancements. Therefore students need to receive an education that prepares them for the real world. Not only do students need to know the basic concepts of science, they must be able to make sense of that information and apply it to practical situations. Science education at Abbey Park will prepare students for the 21st century by providing them with numerous opportunities to access technology appropriately and to develop the critical thinking and problem solving skills needed for daily life and the workplace.


This course enables students to deepen their understanding of chemistry through the study of organic chemistry, the structure and properties of matter, energy changes and rates of reaction, equilibrium in chemical systems, and electrochemistry. Students will further develop their problem-solving and investigation skills as they investigate chemical processes, and will refine their ability to communicate scientific information. Emphasis will be placed on the importance of chemistry in everyday life and on evaluating the impact of chemical technology on the environment.
