The purpose of Higher Chemistry is to develop students’ curiosity, interest and enthusiasm for chemistry in a range of contexts.
The skills of scientific inquiry and investigation are developed throughout the course.
The relevance of chemistry is highlighted by the study of the applications of chemistry in everyday contexts. This will enable students to become scientifically literate citizens, able to review the science-based claims they will meet.
The Higher has four units:
Chemical Changes and Structure; Researching Chemistry; Nature’s Chemistry; Chemistry in Society.
A basic knowledge of chemistry and a good level of numeracy is needed.
