Year 10 Chemistry provides an opportunity for students to develop an introduction in preparation for VCE Chemistry. The study covers a variety of topics including; writing and balancing chemical equations, acids and bases, neutralisation reactions, titrations and naming hydrocarbons, polymers, factors affecting reaction rates and nanotechnology. Students are expected to complete a range of practical reports to assist in understanding of the concepts.
- Chemical Equations
- Chemical Reactions
Science inquiry skills, such as questioning, predicing, planning, conducting, recording, analysing, evaluating and communicating.
Possible Assessment Tasks
Practical investigations, research tasks, tests and assignments.
