The first and second laws of thermodynamics, phase equilibrium
Reactivity in organic chemistry
The topic aims to:
Reinforce and expand upon Year 12 Chemistry in South Australia while introducing students to new areas of chemistry
Together with related higher year topics, provide students with the full complement of theorectical and practical skills that are essential to a career as a professional chemist
Provide the necessary grounding in basic chemistry for students who will eventually major in other disciplines
Meet the conditions for accreditation with the Royal Australian Chemical Institute
Explore modern methods of molecular identification, redox and organic chemistry, kinetics and physical chemistry
Prepare students to undertake higher year studies in chemistry
Expected learning outcomes
At the completion of this topic, students are expected to be able to:
Develop independent study skills
Have a sound knowledge of the material delineated by the topic description statement
Develop useful generic and scientific skills in Chemistry and start to develop chemical intuition for type of reactions or chemical transformations that might occur
Develop skills in handling chemicals, apparatus and instrumentation and, by working together with other students, will begin to develop teamwork and problem-solving skills in addition to strengthening their own self-learning skills
Develop communication skills, skills in solving problems and build on their self-confidence
