IB Chemistry SL Syllabus

IB is an International Baccalaureate program launched in Switzerland, managed and licensed by IBO, of which IBDP is approved by almost universities in the world. The full IB program is designed with 3 levels of instruction:

  • PYP: For students 3-12 years old.
  • MYP: For students 12-16 years old
  • IBDP: For students 16-19 years old.

IBDP or IB has all 6 subject groups, students must choose 1 subject in each group, only group 6 (Arts) can skip and choose 1 subject out of the 5 above groups instead.

  • Group 1: First language (usually the native language).
  • Group 2: Second language.
  • Group 3: Individual and society.
  • Group 4: Natural sciences.
  • Group 5: Mathematics.
  • Group 6: Arts.

IB is divided into 2 levels: Higher Level (HL) and Standard Level (SL). Each student must select at least 3 subjects in HL and no more than 4 subjects in HL.

  4. Chemical bonding and structure
  5. Energetics – Thermochemistry
  6. Chemical kinetics
  7. Equilibrium
  8. Acids and bases
  9. Redox processes
  10. Organic chemistry
  11. Measurement and data processing

For HL, students will learn:

  1. Atomic structure
  2. The periodic table – The transition metals
  3. Chemical bonding and structure
  4. Energetics – Thermochemistry
  5. Chemical kinetics
  6. Equilibrium
  7. Acids and bases
  8. Redox processes
  9. Organic chemistry
  10. Measurement and analysis

With the IB Chemistry program, students have the opportunity to develop investigative skills, collect data, analyze results, and collaborate in the classroom. Surveys may be laboratory-based or may use simulations and databases. Through experiments, students’ brains will be widen creativity constantly.

It can be said that, in addition to the in-depth knowledge that the IB Chemistry program brings, this subject also helps students apply the scientific methods used in research into life, thereby making life more varied and colorful.
