2017 subject changes
2016 is the last year of teaching Stage 1 Chemistry.
Redeveloped Chemistry at Stage 1 will be taught for the first time in 2017.
Stage 1 Chemistry will be taught for the first time in 2017.
Science inquiry skills and science as a human endeavour are integral to students’ learning in this subject and are interwoven through the science understanding, which is organised into six topics.
In their study of these topics, students develop and extend their understanding of some of the fundamental principles and concepts of chemistry, including structure, bonding, polarity, solubility, acid-base reactions, and redox. These are introduced in the individual topics, with the mole concept and some energy concepts introduced gradually throughout these topics.
Stage 1 subject code from 2017: 1CEM10 or 1CEM20
Credits: 10 or 20
