Chemistry, the study of matter and its interactions, contributes essential knowledge and understanding across all aspects of our lives.
Chemistry explains the links between the particulate nature of matter and the macroscopic properties of the world. Chemical research and development is essential for the introduction of new products.
The chemical industry is a major contributor to the economy of the country.
Chemistry Courses encourage resilience, creative thinking and teach pupils to analyse and solve problems.
Our Chemistry course enables leaners to develop their knowledge and understanding of chemistry. The course covers a variety of contexts relevant to chemistry's impact on the environment and society.
This includes our five topics of S3:
National 4 Chemistry enables you to begin to develop knowledge and understanding of chemistry.
You will develop an understanding of chemistry's role in scientific issues and the impact these could have on the environment.
There are three units in National 4 Chemistry:
National 5 Chemistry enables you to develop and apply knowledge and understanding of chemistry further.
You will also develop an understanding of chemistry's role in scientific issues and relevant applications of chemistry.
Including the impact these could make in society and the environment.
There are three units in National 5 Chemistry:
Higher chemistry develops your curiosity, interest and enthusiasm for chemistry in a range of contexts.
The skills of scientific inquiry and investigation are developed throughout the Course.
The relevance of chemistry is highlighted by the study of the applications of chemistry in everyday contexts.
The three topics of Higher Chemistry are:
Successful learners in chemistry think creatively, analyse and solve problems. An experimental and investigative approach is used to develop knowledge and understanding of chemistry concepts.
The Advanced Higher Course provides opportunities for learners to recognise the impact chemistry makes on developing sustainability, and its effects on the environment, on society and on the lives of themselves and others.
Advanced Higher Chemistry develops discrete areas of chemistry:
