The purpose of this guide is to assist students in their preparation for tests and examinations in the ATAR Chemistry course for Units 1 and 2. The structure of the topics will allow students to use the book throughout the year. The guide closely adheres to the W.A. School Curriculum and Standards Authority ATAR syllabus. Essential theory is interwoven with revision exercises so that students will be able to actively review core theory and concepts.
Essential core theory for each topic of Science Understanding is covered clearly and in detail. Illustrations and worked examples are used extensively to assist students in their learning. Throughout each chapter, questions and exercises are integrated with theory to help students clarify and consolidate their understanding of new concepts. Review questions at the end of each chapter provide a wide range of problems including a more challenging ‘for the experts’ contextual question. All questions and review exercises have detailed answers to provide students with immediate feedback and a means of enhancing their progress.
Chemistry calculations are an important part of the Chemistry course and these have been treated in great detail. A comprehensive range of worked examples are included to assist students in developing their skills in this area. The review questions and solutions also provide many opportunities for further independent learning.
Trial tests for each major topic provide an ideal means of self assessment. The style and structure of these tests is similar to that proposed for the WACE examination. They contain a multiple choice section and a short and extended answer section. The marks allocated for each of the sections also reflect the weightings proposed by the SCSA for the examinations. Chemistry is a most interesting and an enjoyable science to study. The practical work, in particular, holds a fascination for students. The authors hope that this study guide will help students to better understand the concepts they will encounter and to achieve greater success in the subject.
