Stage 1 Chemistry is about learning the key concepts of the subject while understanding the importance of chemistry in our everyday lives. Almost everything we do has a link to chemistry, and chemistry is critical in helping to develop solutions to problems such as global warming, pollution and formation of new medications.
Topics in Semester 1 include the periodic table, atomic structure, bonding, mole theory and organic chemistry.
Semester 2 expands on Semester 1 content and helps prepare students for Stage 2 Chemistry.
This subject is not a prerequisite for Stage 2 Chemistry, however it would be beneficial.
