The Chemistry course equips students with the knowledge, understanding and opportunity to investigate properties and reactions of materials. Students predict chemical effects, recognise hazards and make informed, balanced decisions about chemical use and sustainable resource management. Investigations and laboratory activities develop an appreciation of the need for precision, critical analysis and informed decision making.
This course prepares students to be responsible and efficient users of specialised chemical products and processes at home or in the workplace. It also enables students to relate chemistry to other sciences including biology, geology, medicine, molecular biology and agriculture and prepares them for further study in the sciences.
