This subject explores the rationale, methodology and teaching techniques relevant to the teaching of VCE Chemistry, with a special emphasis on Units 2 and 4 of the VCE study. Some of the general teaching techniques of Chemistry are also emphasized in junior science, including laboratory work, demonstrations and safety in the use of chemicals and equipment, In this subject, we focus on quantitative Chemistry, the various types of chemical calculations, definitional problems, chemical equation-writing and actual measured quantities in practical activities. Another detailed focus will be on assessment in Chemistry, both as prescribed by VCAA, and informal and alternate assessment opportunities.
