New syllabus, high-quality notes used as teaching and study material for HSC Chemistry students. These notes have been used to help students score 90+ in their HSC exams in 2019.
Please note that the order of these notes do not completely align with what's outlined by NESA's syllabus. The syllabus content has been rearranged to create a more logical and cohesive learning experience for students. These notes contain content from Module 1: Properties and Structure of Matter as many school teachers do not teach this section until Term 2 Year 11.
The notes are divided into 4 sections:
Section 1: Properties of Matter
In this section, students learn about the different types of matter as well as how to categorise them. The section begins with types of matter, followed by classifying mixtures then ionic and covalent substances.
Section 2: Atomic Structure and Atomic Mass
This section is an introduction to atomic models and atomic structure. In this section, students learn about the development of atomic theory and nuclear chemistry
Section 3: Periodicity
Section 3 is on periodicity and focuses on the many different trends of the periodic table. These trends include atomic radius, electronegativity, ionisation energy, and more.
Section 4: Bonding
Students learn about the different types of bonding in this section as well as theory behind the classifications of these bond types. Content will also include polarity, VSEPR theory, and a continuation on ionic and covalent substances.
