What should I have already achieved?
14 credits in Level 2 Chemistry (including 2 external achievement standards)
What will I learn?
Chemistry is the study of matter and the changes it undergoes. In their study of chemistry, students develop an understanding of the composition and properties of matter, the changes it undergoes, and the energy involved. They use their understanding of the fundamental properties of chemistry to make sense of the world around them. They learn to interpret their observations by considering the properties and behaviour of atoms, molecules, and ions. They learn to communicate their understandings, using the symbols and conventions of chemistry. Using their knowledge of chemistry, they are better able to understand science-related challenges, such as environmental sustainability and the development of new materials, pharmaceuticals, and sources of energy.
Periodic trends and the properties of particles and substances
Spectroscopy techniques and analysis
