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.


Learning Areas:

Science



Career Pathways

Chemist, Biochemist, Science Technician, Medical Laboratory Scientist, Acupuncturist, Pathologist, Clinical Physiologist, Physician, Podiatrist, General Practitioner, Gynaecologist/Obstetrician, Psychiatrist

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.
