Chemistry Level 2

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs K. Jom

This course is designed to promote a recognition of chemistry as a distinct scientific discipline with an essential role to play in modern society. This is achieved through the physical properties of substances and simple quantitative chemical calculations. Through practical experience wherever possible, the student is encouraged to develop the necessary practical skills to handle and manipulate equipment safely and to make, record and process chemical observations, especially those relating to qualitative and quantitative analysis.
Topics covered are: Atomic Structure and Bonding, Oxidation and Reduction, Acids and Bases, Organic Chemistry, Equilibrium and Reaction rates, Quantitative and Qualitative Chemistry.

The following standards are the core standards that are available for study at this level. A standard course is made up of 20-23 credits. 

Chemistry Laboratory Equipment Drawing Software, Free Examples ...


Course Overview

Term 1
AS 91164 Demonstrate understanding of bonding, structure, properties, and energy changes.
The study of this standard g involves elaborating, justifying, relating, evaluating, comparing and contrasting, or analysing links between bonding, structure, and properties of different substances and the energy involved in physical and chemical changes. This requires the consistent use of chemistry vocabulary, symbols, and conventions.

AS 91167 Demonstrate understanding of oxidation-reduction.
The study of this standard involves justifying, evaluating, comparing and contrasting, or analysing links between oxidation-reduction reactions, observations and equations. This requires the consistent use of chemistry vocabulary, symbols and conventions.

Term 2
AS91165 Demonstrate an understanding of the properties of selected organic compounds.
The study of this standard g involves elaborating, justifying, relating, evaluating, comparing and contrasting, or using links between the structure, functional groups and the chemical properties of selected organic compounds. This requires the consistent use of chemistry vocabulary, symbols and conventions.

AS91910 Carry out quantitative analysis.
The study of this standard involves accurately determining the concentration of the substance in the consumer product, including correct use of significant figures and units, justifying how modifying the consumer product sample and/or the titration procedure improved the validity and accuracy of the investigation and evaluating the outcome of the investigation in relation to the consumer product.

Term 3
AS91166 Demonstrate understanding of chemical reactivity
The study of this standard involves elaborating, justifying, relating, evaluating, comparing and contrasting, or analysing chemical reactivity. This requires the consistent use of chemistry vocabulary, symbols and conventions.

Term 4
Revision to prepare for external examinations.
