Chemistry Level 3

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs K. Jom

This course follows on from the NCEA Level 2 course and is designed to provide a suitable body of knowledge for students proceeding to tertiary level. The course re-examines the topics of Level 2 in much greater depth and provides an opportunity to discuss the impact of chemistry on the everyday world, especially as relates to New Zealand. Experimental work is done wherever possible to create a more mature understanding of the interplay between experiment and theory. Students intending to study Level 3 Chemistry should have studied Chemistry at the Level 2.
Topics covered are: Organic Chemistry,spectroscopic data, Aqueous Chemistry, Atomic Structure, Oxidation/Reduction, Inorganic Chemistry, Thermo-chemical principles

The following standards are the core standards that are available for study at this level. A standard course is made up of 20-21 credits. 

Development of sulfur-triazole exchange (SuTEx) chemistry for ...


Course Overview

Term 1
AS 91393 Oxidation-reduction.
The study of this standard involves comparing and contrasting, and justifying, links between oxidation-reduction processes, observations, equations, and calculations. This requires the consistent use of chemistry vocabulary, symbols, and conventions.
AS 91391 Organic chemistry.
The study of this standard involves elaborating, justifying, relating, evaluating, or comparing and contrasting the links between the structure, functional groups, physical properties, and/or reactivity of organic compounds. This requires the consistent use of chemistry vocabulary, symbols, and conventions.

Term 2
AS 91392 Aqueous systems.
The study of this standard involves elaborating, justifying, relating, evaluating, comparing and contrasting, or analysing properties of aqueous systems in terms of equilibrium principles. This requires the consistent use of chemistry vocabulary, symbols, and conventions and may include related calculations.

Term 3
AS 91388 Spectroscopic data
Demonstrate understanding of spectroscopic data involves identifying discrete aspects of the structure of organic molecules and justifying the structure of organic molecules by using and integrating teacher provided spectroscopic data.

AS 91390 Thermochemical principles.
The study of this standard involves elaborating, justifying, relating, evaluating, comparing and contrasting, or analysing links between the properties of particles, the properties of substances they form, thermochemical principles, and related calculations. This requires the consistent use of chemistry vocabulary, symbols, and conventions.

Term 4
Revision to prepare for external examinations.
