Level 2 Chemistry

CHE200
Course Description

Teacher to contact with questions: Mrs E. Carr

Chemistry enables us to understand the properties of different materials and to transform materials into new and useful substances. Through chemistry, we can understand changes that we observe in the natural and physical world. Chemistry gives us understandings on which to base educated choices about consumer products and management of resources.

Chemistry enables us to develop a range of useful materials such as pharmaceuticals for curing and treating diseases, substances that protect the environment, technologically advanced structures for building, and materials that can be used as alternative energy sources. Chemistry is fundamental to understanding climate change and wise use of the world’s energy and water resources.
