Foundational chemistry: Acids, bases and chemical reactions
This unit is ESSENTIAL for any student wishing to study chemistry beyond Level 1 NCEA.
This unit will prepare students for the Level 1 Science external assessment (an end-of-year exam) about foundational chemistry concepts. Students MUST take this course and pass the end-of-year exam (AS90944: Demonstrate Understanding of Acids and Bases) to be prepared for Level 2 Chemistry the following year.
This course will cover the foundations of chemistry knowledge about the nature of atoms and ions, as well as acids, bases, salts, the pH scale, indicators and reaction rates.
Once again, this course is essential for students to be adequately prepared for Level 2 NCEA chemistry.
