Level 2 Chemistry - Investigating Chemical Reactions

Course Description

Teacher in Charge:

This course covers topics that are internally assessed. The standards covered involve exploring oxidation-reduction reactions including recording observations and writing equations, completing a practical investigation into identifying a chemical species present in a sample using qualitative analysis, and discussing the significance of the identified chemical species for people or the environment. Time permitting a third assessment will be offered, also a practical investigation investigating a substance present in a consumer product using quantitative analysis involving calculations to determine its concentration using titration procedures and evaluating the outcome of the investigation in relationship to the consumer product.
