NCEA Level 2 Chemistry

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs R. Blair

Chemistry affects our daily life and enables us to enjoy the standard of living we have.  Chemistry explains how things work.  The level 2 Chemistry course aims to provide a solid foundation of skills and concepts on which to base further studies in Chemistry. 

What will I do in Level 2 Chemistry? 

You will develop your skills of observation in a chemical context, learning to link observations to chemical species. You will learn to work with accuracy and precision when analyzing chemical substances. Practical work will be supported by chemical equations and calculations. The Internal assessments in Level 2 Chemistry will develop practical skills and be supported by chemical equations and calculations. 

What will I learn in Level 2 Chemistry? 

Level 2 Chemistry is

  1. Understanding how atoms in molecules are held together and how this determines the properties of the molecules.

  2. Understanding the factors that influence rates of reaction, equilibrium reactions and the properties of acids and bases. 

The content covered in the two externals will provide an understanding of concepts that will be further developed in Level 3 Chemistry
