SCH4C Chemistry – GRADE 11

PREREQUISITE : Grade 10 Science, Academic or Applied.

GRADE : 12 (College)


SCH4C online at Profectus enables students to develop an understanding of chemistry through the study of matter and qualitative analysis, organic chemistry, electrochemistry, chemical calculations, and chemistry as it relates to the quality of the environment. Students will use a variety of laboratory techniques, develop skills in data collection and scientific analysis, and communicate scientific information using appropriate terminology. In SCH4C online, emphasis will be placed on the role of chemistry in daily life and the effects of technological applications and processes on society and the environment.

UNIT 1 :

Scientific Investigation Skills and Career Exploration (16hrs)

Students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate scientific investigation skills (related to both inquiry and research) in the four areas of skills (initiating and planning, performing and recording, analysing and interpreting, and communicating).
  • Identify and describe careers related to the fields of science under study, and describe the contributions of scientists, including canadians, to those fields.

UNIT 2 :

Matter and Qualitative Analysis (16hrs)

Students will be able to:

  • Evaluate the effects of chemical substances on the environment, and analyse practical applications of qualitative analysis of matter.
  • Investigate matter, using various methods of qualitative analysis.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the basic principles of qualitative analysis of matter.

UNIT 3 :

Organic Chemistry (16hrs)

Students will be able to:

  • Evaluate the impact on society, human health, and the environment of products made using organic compounds.
  • Investigate the physical and chemical properties of organic compounds, and analyse some common organic chemical reactions.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the structure and the physical and chemical properties of organic compounds.

UNIT 4 :

Electrochemistry (16hrs)

Students will be able to:

  • Analyse technological applications or processes relating to oxidation-reduction reactions, and assess their impact on the environment.
  • Investigate the oxidation-reduction reaction that occurs in a galvanic cell.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the concepts of oxidation and reduction, and the principles of oxidation-reduction reactions.

UNIT 5 :

Chemical Calculations (16hrs)

Students will be able to:

  • Analyse processes in the home, the workplace, or the environmental sector that use chemical quantities and calculations, and assess the importance of accuracy in chemical calculations.
  • Investigate chemical compounds and chemical reactions using appropriate techniques of quantitative analysis, and solve related problems.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the mole concept and its quantitative relationships in chemical reactions.

UNIT 6 :

Chemistry in the Environment (16hrs)

Students will be able to:

  • Evaluate the importance of government regulations, scientific analyses, and individual actions in improving air and water quality, and propose a personal plan of action to support these efforts.
  • Investigate chemical reactions, using appropriate techniques of quantitative analysis.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of chemical reactions that occur in the environment as a result of both natural processes and human activities.


Course Culmination (14hrs)

The Culminating Unit incorporates all four strands of the Science Curriculum, and covers the four achievement chart categories. It consists of two parts:

  • Culminating Project worth 15% and a
  • Final Exam worth 15%

Online Course Policies

Listed below are various mandatory policies as you take on this course.

  • Attendance is regularly tracked through student contributions to online discussion boards, assignment completion, and learning logs. Failure to complete allocated activities may challenge the student’s ability to attain the credit.
  • This course will be presented using an asynchronistic model whereby work will be posted on the Google Classroom and it is the student’s responsibility to complete it on their own time.
  • ALL portions of this course are intended to be learned and completed online.
  • Final Exams and Tests will be written on site at Profectus Academy of Toronto. Course instructors will relay this information to students and families.
  • The integrity of student work will be checked on an ongoing basis using Quetext or Turnitin. Plagiarism is not tolerated.

Assessment & Evaluation Policies

The primary purpose of assessment and evaluation is to improve student learning. The Achievement Chart for Science will guide all assessment and evaluation.

Knowledge and Understanding

The final grade will be determined as follows:

  • 70% based on Assessment OF Learning (including conversations, observations and products) conducted throughout the course.
  • 30% based on Culminating Tasks administered at or towards the end of the course.

Assessment and evaluation is divided into two important parts. The grade the student receives on a midterm or final report indicates achievement/ proficiency in Curriculum Expectations. A level of competence (Needs Improvement, Satisfactory, Good or Excellent) will be assessed and reported in the area of Learning Skills and Work Habits: Independent Work, Collaboration, Responsibility, Initiative, Self-Regulation, and Organization.
