IB Correlations for Chemistry

The International Baccalaureate program has a complete set of objectives for an IB Chemistry class at the standard level (SL) and the higher level (HL).

As outlined in the Chemistry syllabus in the IB Diploma Programme guide, published for the first test in 2009, these objectives are arranged according to series of 20 topics, each with a number of subtopics.

In the table below, we have correlated the topics and subtopics with the experiments that are contained in various Vernier lab books. In addition, we have listed the various Vernier experiments that correlate with options A−G in the IB Guide for Chemistry.
