Maths in Chem

There is a fair bit of maths in chem but its managable. a lot of it is simple ratios ( which are difficult at first but become so natural). chemistry is a very very hard subject but if you stick with it its managable. There is a section called stoicheometery but it doesnt come up as a full question and can be avoided.

its okay to do as long as u practice the stoichiometry questions on the exam papers....and keep practising........i dont think u need h.l maths to do the stoichiometry in Chem....as all that is involved in the stoichiometry is division, multiplication and simple calculations.......howeverit does take time to get used to it...... and will seem hard at first.........

yes there is maths but its not like you are solving equations most of the time... maybe look up sample stoichiometry questions to get a good idea
