  • Curriculum Aims

    • ​The overarching aim of the Chemistry Curriculum is to provide chemistry-related learning experiences for students to develop scientific literacy, so that they can participate actively in our rapidly changing knowledge-based society, prepare for further studies or careers in fields related to chemistry, and become lifelong learners in science and technology.

    • The aims of Chemistry are to enable students to:

      • develop interest in and maintain a sense of wonder and curiosity about chemistry

      • construct and apply knowledge of chemistry, and appreciate the relationship between chemistry and other disciplines;

      • appreciate and understand the evolutionary nature of science;

      • develop skills for making scientific inquiries;

      • develop the ability to think scientifically, critically and creatively, and solve problems individually and collaboratively in chemistry-related contexts;

      • discuss science-related issues using the language of chemistry;

      • make informed decisions and judgements on chemistry-related issues;

      • develop open-mindedness, objectivity and pro-activeness;

      • show appropriate awareness of working safely; and

      • understand and evaluate the social, ethical, economic, environmental and technological implications of chemistry, and develop an attitude of responsible citizenship.
