About this Unit
The chemical sciences underpin our understanding in the environmental, forensic, health, medical, biological and physical sciences. This unit familiarises students with the fundamental principles of chemistry and how chemistry shapes the world around us. Students will be introduced to the concepts of atomic structure, the reactivity of substances, the Periodic Table, stoichiometry, and will learn about the structure and reactivity of substances and mixtures in different chemical environments, and exposed to different forms of electromagnetic radiation. Students will explore real world problems and apply the fundamental principles of chemistry to better understand how we may shape our own future.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Students require approved safety glasses, lab coat, enclosed shoes.
