CHEM1901

Chemistry 1A (Advanced)

This unit of study offers students an integrated approach to the composition of matter, the shapes of molecules, and the physical and chemical processes that occur in chemistry. The emphasis is on the molecular basis of materials and transformations relevant to everyday experience. Many of these topics are treated in depth and the unit is designed to extend students who have demonstrated a strong foundation knowledge of HSC chemistry. The concepts covered in lectures will be illustrated by work conducted in the laboratories. The laboratory classes also teach some standard research techniques and experimental methodology. The unit carries a credit point value of 6 and consists of approximately 80 hours of teaching. It contains some continuous assessment and concludes with an examination.

We also offer CHEM1903, part of our 'Special Studies Program' (SSP), which is open to students with high ATAR and high school chemistry marks who are excited by research in the chemical sciences. For more details and to apply to join the SSP program, please see our online form.
