Grade 11 University Chemistry
                              Welcome to Grade 11 Chemistry
INSTRUCTOR:                                                  OFFICE:  Rm 344          
PREREQUISITE: Grade 10 Academic Science    TEXTBOOK: Nelson Chemistry 11
GENERAL AIMS AND OBJECTIVES:  This course is designed to expand on the Chemistry Strand from your previous Grade 9 and 10 Science courses. Here, there will be five strands, all of which will develop different aspects of Chemical Science. The goals and aims of this course are concurrent with those set in the Ontario Curriculum Grades 11 and 12, 2008.
TEACHING STRATEGIES:  Instructional methods will include Library research, textbook assignments, laboratory activities, multi-media analysis, inductive and deductive learning, group work and student directed study.
EXPECTATIONS: Students will be expected to:
Interact harmoniously with each other and the environment
Be punctual, and prepared for every class
Complete all assigned work on time
Strive to maintain good citizenship
Display a level of maturity that is compatible with the level of the course
ASSESSMENT AND EVALUATION: Assessment and evaluation will include long and short term assignments and labs, tests and quizzes, homework and classwork, participation individually and in groups, practical skills, journals, portfolios, etc. In addition, there will be Formative and Summative evaluations. Formative evaluations are designed to give the student feed-back as to how well they have learned a concept. These may be assessed, self marked, peer marked or teacher marked. Summative evaluations are intended to show what a student has learned and they will make up the 70% term mark.
The report card provides a record of the learning skills demonstrated by the students in every course in the following six categories listed in the table below. Separate evaluations and reporting of these learning skills will be assessed through out the course and will play a critical role in student achievement of the curriculum expectations. These assessments of the learning skills will not be considered in the determination of percentage grades.
