Level 3 Chemistry

CHE301
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs C. Lincoln

We will begin Level 3 Chemistry by exploring the concepts of Thermochemistry and starting the learning towards an external exam at the end of the year. This will build on the learning from Atomic, Structure & Bonding from Level 2 Chemistry. Students will then use their knowledge of Chemistry to explore and make sense of oxidation and reduction, in a internal assessment. Then you will have the opportunity to complete a research assessment looking at Chemistry used to extract Aluminium at Tiwai Point in Southland.

Students will then use practical skills to carry out an investigation into the concentration of vitamin C in fruit juice. The final internal assessment is using detective work to analyse different groups in organic molecules. The assessments in Level 3 Chemistry are both practical and research based. Chemistry is a very useful subject for those students looking at studying Science at University.

For further information see Mrs Lincoln.
