Chemistry - NCEA Level 2
Teacher in Charge: Mr J. Tini
This course aims to introduce students to senior Chemistry and provide the foundation necessary for continued studies in a subject that is in a wide range of careers such as firefighting, the food industry, engineering and health sciences, to name a few.
This course will look at the different types of substances and the ways they interact. Students will also learn laboratory techniques to find out the chemicals in a substance and the amounts in them.
Four achievement standards are used to assess learning. Three are internally assessed using a combination of practical and theory. The other one is externally assessed in the end of year NZQA examinations.
