Senior High Chemistry deals with the composition, structure and properties of matter and the changes it undergoes. A study of Chemistry will help students to gain a better understanding of the precision and design of the physical world God created. It is a fascinating topic in its own right but is also very practical; enabling us to be good stewards of the resources that God has given to us.
Senior High Chemistry is suited to students who have studied Mathematics Extension and Science Extension in Year Ten. It is also beneficial for students to be studying Mathematics B.
A good background in Chemistry is essential for an increasing number of professions in a range of areas including agriculture, health, forensic science, nursing, forestry, industry, environmental work, zoology, marine science, pathology, photography, engineering, laboratory work and dentistry.
