Year 10 Chemistry provides students with the opportunity to readily prepare for VCE Chemistry. Students investigate the Bonding Models of Metallic, Ionic and Covalent compounds. They further their knowledge on the periodic table and structure of the atom. Students also study topics such as Surface Chemistry, Atomic Theory and Chemical Reactions such as decomposition, precipitation, combustion.
Through practical investigations students learn how to write chemical formula and equations. The programme is designed as a lead into Unit 1 VCE Chemistry. Students who are planning to undertake VCE Chemistry are strongly encouraged to undertake this subject.
