14 credits from a L1 Science course including a pass in Acids and Bases external. Students who do not meet these prerequisites must have internal credits and attempted the Acids and Bases external. Students are expected to bring their paper to their class teacher for discussion.
Chemistry involves understanding the properties and changes that different substances undergo. We are able to use Chemistry knowledge to predict how substances can change when conditions around them change as well as explain why some substances react to form new substances that could or could not be beneficial to us. Chemists are continually changing matter into new and more useful forms. Chemistry is all around us; for example plants making their own food or use of fuels by vehicles, manufacture of household products such as cleaning agents, shampoos, soaps, and medications. In this course, students will study quantitative and qualitative analysis of chemicals to enhance their skills at gathering and interpreting data, aspects of organic chemistry which involves for example how wines can be converted to vinegar. In addition to these they will also be studying about atomic structure and bonding which helps us to understand properties and behaviour of different materials.
