Enjoyment. Fascination. Chemistry in LML.

Who would not be fascinated when substances start bubbling, changing colour or emitting revolting smells (and hopefully all three at the same time!)?

Chemistry is a science that stands for enjoyment and wonder as it is a subject that entertains all our senses.

The study of chemistry is essential for the study of many professions (health and medical sector, engineering, pharmacy, material science etc.) and, due to the analytical nature of the subject, it is more widely recommended for a range of other careers and studies requiring these skills (e.g. Economics, Law, Anthropology)

Our Teaching Philosophy

Chemistry is an experimental science based on a multitude of theoretical models and concepts that build up on each other. These facts are reflected in a common teaching philosophy: whenever possible, practical work and the revision of prior knowledge is integrated in the teaching practice of new concepts in order to reinforce the crosslink between the various concepts and models.

Another common teaching element is that the learning outcomes are discussed together with the students at the beginning of each activity. We are strong believers that making the learning journey visible to the students fosters their focus and their motivation.

What we prepare our students for

INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL MICHEL LUCIUS

In line with the curriculum used in our Primary School, our international school offer in chemistry is based on the CAMBRIDGE INTERNATIONAL CURRICULUM. English is the exclusive teaching language for this branch.
A first introduction to chemistry is facilitated in the KEY STAGE 3 Science classes (7IEC to 5IEC).

From here, all our international students follow the international GCSE curriculum (4IEC and 3IEC), an externally assessed 2-year programme covering the most important areas of chemistry. This qualification enables a successful progression to the externally assessed AS and A Level (2IEC and 1IEC).

Cambridge International AS and A Level Chemistry covers in depth the main theoretical concepts of the subject illustrated by current applications with a strong focus on advanced practical skills. This qualification is ideal for learners who want to study chemistry or a wide variety of related subjects at university or to follow a career in science.

More information on the Cambridge qualifications can be found under the following links:
Cambridge IGCSE Chemistry (0620)
Cambridge International AS and A Level Chemistry (9701)

LYCEE MICHEL LUCIUS

Chemistry is taught in German in the following sections of the ENSEIGNEMENT SECONDAIRE GENERAL (ESG):

  • Générale Ingénierie (GIG) from 4G to 1G
  • Générale Sciences Naturelles (GSN) from 4G to 1G
  • Générale Professions de Santé et Professions Sociales (GPS) from 4G to 3G

Our chemistry students work towards the ‘diplôme de fin d’études secondaires (GIG et GSN)’, or to be able to go to another school to learn a profession in the health or social sector (GPS).

The official program and the list of student textbooks are updated every year before the start of the academic year and are available on the website of the MINISTERE DE L’EDUCATION NATIONALE, DE L’ENFANCE ET DE LA JEUNESSE : Horaires et programmes
