CHEMISTRY 21F - Full Year

CHE21F
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr D. Williams

This course is designed to introduce the fundamentals of the Material World and how these materials interact with each other. It puts emphasis on developing the tools needed to observe, quantify and explain chemical interactions. This course provides a sound basis for further study in Chemistry.

Topics include:
- Practical chemistry skills
- Chemical Reactivity
- Chemical Bonding
- Reaction types

The course will provide 19 credits and the standards being assessed are listed below.

There is a possibility of a field trip to the University of Canterbury Chemistry Department. 

Future Possibilities
Chemistry at Year 12 is necessary for study at Year 13 and a wide range of tertiary studies including engineering and health sciences. This is an essential course for those interested in pursuing health sciences at University.
