Course Description

The ATAR Chemistry course develops students' understanding of the key chemical concepts and models of structure, bonding, and chemical change including the role of chemical, electrical and thermal energy. Students learn how models of structure and bonding enable chemists to predict properties and reactions and to adapt these for particular purposes. Studying Chemistry provides students with a range of skills and understandings that are valuable to a wide range of further study pathways and careers including those in forensic science, environmental science, engineering, medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and sports science. Additionally, chemistry is valuable in occupations that rely on an understanding of materials and their interactions, such as art, winemaking, agriculture and food technology.
