LEVEL 3 CHEMISTRY – L3CHEM

Learning Area: Science
Qualification: NCEA Level 3

Chemists interpret the world from an atomic and molecular perspective. This course builds on Level 2 ideas about redox, aqueous, quantitative chemistry and explores new areas such as qualitative analysis e.g. spectroscopy, in addition to thermochemistry. Level 3 Chemistry opens up a wide variety of career opportunities from health, pharmaceuticals and food technology to engineering and environmental science.

Course Components:
  • Spectroscopy
  • Oxidation-reduction
  • Thermochemistry
  • Importance of organic chemistry
