Level 3 Chemistry

CH300
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms J. Sharp

OBJECTIVES:
This is a course for students who have developed a passion for chemistry in Level 2, and those who are aiming at a career for which chemistry is a prerequisite, or who want to study the sciences at university and need to keep their options open. It builds on the topics taught in Level 2 Chemistry and incorporates plenty of practical work.

COURSE CONTENT:
Topics at Level 3 will be chosen from:
•Particles and Thermochemistry
•Organic Chemistry
•Redox Chemistry
•Aqueous Chemistry
to suit the group of students in the class.


Equipment/Stationery

A set of 2 workbooks are provided by the department for use as texts. However, if a student wishes to write in her workbook, she can purchase them at a cost of $25.

It is of benefit to students to bring a laptop to lessons although they will not be disadvantaged academically if they do not. They may need to access a Chromebook from school instead.

$15 contribution to Education Perfect


Recommended Prior Learning

At least 12 credits at Level 2, or in unusual circumstances, at the
discretion of the Head of Science.
