LEVEL 3 CHEMISTRY 3CHE   

What is this course about? Chemistry is the study of matter. Chemistry is about understanding the properties of different substances and  how these substances can change. Chemical transformations happen all the time, everywhere. Chemistry  goes on continuously, all around us. Chemists, and students who study chemistry, use their understanding of  atoms, molecules, and ions – particles that are too tiny to be seen with our eyes – to explain and predict the  properties and behaviour of different materials. 

What sorts of things will I do? You will be involved in the active exploration of what chemistry is, and how chemists use a range of  approaches and perspectives when viewing problems or issues. This year we will focus our chemistry to  understand the issues of climate change and plastic pollution. You will carry out investigations and research  to be able to communicate the science of these issues.
