2. Areas where chemistry is applied such as hospital, military, chemical and petrochemical industries, space science, agriculture, education, etc.
3. Adverse effects of chemicals such as corrosion, drug abuse, poisoning, pollution, etc.
4. Scientific methods like inquiry and discovery methods.

WEEKS 3, 4, & 5 PARTICULATE NATURE OF MATTER.

The focus will be on

1. Physical and chemical change, atoms and molecules as well as dalton’s atomic theory.
2. Constituents of Atom— Protons, neutrons and electrons.
3. Arrangements of electrons around the nucleus.
4. Atomic number, mass umber and isotope.
5. Relative atomic masses on c-14 is aope.
6. Chemical symbols of elements and their valencies.
7. Empirical and molecular formulae.

WEEK 6: SYMBOLS FORMULAE And EQUATIONS

1. Law of conservation of matter and constant compositions.
2. Law of proportion.
3. Chemical equations

WEEKS 7, 8, 9, & 10 CHEMICAL COMBINATION

The emphasis will be on the following:

1. Periodic table (first 20 only) and electron configuration of atoms.
2. Types of bonds and strong bonds; electrovalency (10nic), covalent, coordinate (dative) bonds and metallic bounds.
3. Weak bonds — hydrogen bonds and Vander Waals forces.
4. Systems of naming compound; conventional and IUPAC.
5. State of matter—solid, liquid and gaseous state.
6. The kinetic theory and application.

SECOND TERM CHEMISTRY FOR SS1

DETAILED WORK

WEEK 1, 2, & 3 STANDARD SEPARATION TECHNIQUES FOR MIXTURE:

Emphases will be on:

1. Classification of substances, Mixture and compound
2. Separation techniques; filtration, evaporation, decantation , floatation and frostation. Other techniques are precipitation magnetism and sublimation. The rest are crystallization, fractional crystallization, simple distillation and fractional distillation.
3. Pure and impure substance and test for purity of substances.

WEEKS 4, 5, & 6 GAS LAWS.

The laws to be treated are Boyles law, Charles law, Lussac’s law, Avogadro’s law and Grahams law. Other areas to be treated are general gas equation, ideal gas equation and calculation based on the gas law.

WEEKS 7, 8 &9 ACIDS, BASES AND SAlTS.

Areas to concentrate includes:

1. Characteristics, preparations, reactions and uses acids, bases and acid.
2. Relative acidity and alkalinity (the PH scale).
3. Solubility of salts in water and deliquescent efflorescent and hydroscopic substances.

THIRD TERM CHEMISTRY FOR SS1

DETAILED WORK

WEEK 2: WATER

1. Sources and uses of water and water pollutants.
2. Types of water (soft and hard water) and laboratory preparation of water.

WEEKS 3, 4, 5, 6, & 7 CARBON AND ITS COMPOUNDS

The emphasis will be on:

1. Structure of carbon.
2. Allotropes of carbon: charcoal, graphite and diamond. Structure and properties of allotropes and the combustion of carbon allotropes.
3. Different types and industrial distillation of coal as well as uses and products of coal.
4. Coke: gasification and uses carbon dioxide (carbon Iv oxide) and carbon monoxide (carbon ii oxide).
5. Synthetic gas: manufacture and carbon, uses, carbonic acid (Trixo carbonate (Iv) acid) and any carbonate (Trioxo carbonate iv salt).
6. Importance and main classes of hydrocarbons.
7. Crude oil and natural gas.

WEEKS 8 & 9 CHEMICAL INDUSTRY.

Students are expected to go on a field trip or an excursion to chemical industry. Students are to know the types of chemical industries and their uses to individual and the nation.
