Level 3 Chemistry

Level 3

Course Code: 3SCHE
Who can I talk to: Ms Singh

Through a range of practical chemistry investigations students will develop their self-management and ability to communicate with others. Students will develop critical thinking skills as they link observations to theory. Students will explore the use of a range of scientific symbols and vocabulary.

Course Information

What Knowledge Will I Develop?

Students will gain an understanding of fundamental material world concepts to prepare them for further science study. Students will develop/modify a plan to carry out a quantitative investigation. They will form links between oxidation-reduction reaction, understand shapes and polarity and properties of molecules, carry out calculations involving thermochemistry, understand structure, properties and reactivity of organic molecules and determine structure of molecules using spectroscopy data. They will learn the application of the above in the real world by having hands on activities such as practicals, experiments and demonstrations.
