2022/2023 Chemistry Scheme Of Work For SS1

Chemistry scheme of work

Based on our research and critical observations, the demand for the approved chemistry scheme of work for ss1 in senior secondary school from chemistry teachers is high, the reason for it high demand is because it is one of the most important subject for science student, apart from this;

Chemistry is one of the compulsory subject requirement for student during admission especially for students that want to study Health science, engineering, Chemistry and any other science or science related course in higher institution be it College of education, Polytechnics or Universities.
This scheme of work is useable in respective of the school be it public or private schools and brings about uniformity in our educational sector, and in our next article we will also provide you with chemistry scheme of work for ss2 and ss3 chemistry schemee for this post aimed we will only emphasize on ss1 chemistry scheme of work

As we have promised, this scheme of work will be made available for all teachers in secondary schools in Nigeria. As will all know that Chemistry is a science subject offered in Senior secondary schools only, although, the chemistry scheme of work for SS 1 is a continuation of the Jss3 Scheme of work Basic Science. This scheme of work has been properly organized for adequate understanding for ss1 students. There has to be a sequel from the previous class in order for students to have better knowledge and understand of the subject.

This Chemistry scheme for SS 1 is the same for both private and public schools in Nigeria, this means that this scheme of work provided here is the same for private school and public or government owned secondary schools, therefore we are urging the directors, principals, director of studies, head of departments sand teachers in secondary schools in Nigeria to strictly use the approved scheme of work as ordered by the ministry of education.

It is advisable for all private and public secondary schools in Nigeria to use the same scheme of work in order to be inline with the directive from the ministry of education. In order to align with the demands of WAEC, NECO, NABTEB, JAMB and other external exam, the ministry of education makes it compulsory for all schools to submit the government approved scheme of work for all subjects offered in senior secondary school as one of the requirements for approving secondary school in Nigeria.

For the purpose of this post, we will strictly focus on Chemistry scheme scheme of work for ss1 first term to third term. This is stated in clear terms, what is expected by WAEC as a body in preparing pupils for Chemistry in their Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (SSSCE) and also will insinuate teachers about the government approved scheme of work for Chemistry (in Senior secondary school 1, that is, SS 1 first term, second term and third term.

This scheme of work will surely help chemistry teacher in carefully breaking down the subject, topics and subtopics and also, improvise more practical ways of imparting the practical knowledge on the learners since is a mixture of both theory and practical and also include indoor and outdoor activity.

This post is importance to chemistry tea hers because myschoolpress is the only platform that provides in full details about the current Chemistry curriculum for SS 1,it include, each topic, subtopic, teacher activities and summary of all the compulsory area teacher should emphasize on for the complete academic session (1st term, 2nd term and 3rd term),
