Objectives

Chemistry is the study of matter and its changes. It presumes that the interactions within and between matter in the universe occur in consistent patterns that can be understood through careful and systematic study. The study of chemistry focuses on investigating the physical and chemical properties of substances, chemical reactions and processes, the interaction of energy and matter, as well as the interpretation of natural phenomena and the prediction of changes at the atomic and the molecular level. It is anticipated that the study of chemistry can help to foster:

  • an appreciation of the beauty of nature,
  • an appreciation of the benefits that have been brought about by the advancement of chemistry,
  • and a recognition that chemistry can provide solutions to problems related to social, economic and environmental issues.

Activity Record
