“Chemistry, unlike other sciences, sprang originally from delusions and superstitions, and was at its commencement exactly on a par with magic and astrology.” – Thomas Thomson
Chemistry enables us to answer many of the curiosities of how the world works and why it behaves the way it does. It helps students to develop problem solving and analytical skills that they can translate into a variety of other subjects and even everyday life.
There is a range of skills that are developed during GCSE at the tuition centre:
- Observational, practical, modeling, enquiry and problem-solving skills.
- Grasp of how hypotheses, evidence, theories and explanations work together.
- Ability to evaluate claims using scientific methods.
- Skills in communication, maths and the use of technology in scientific contexts.
- Awareness of risk and the ability to assess and weigh risk against potential benefits.
Alongside this, fascinating and thought provoking content is taught in line with the up to date specification of GCSE including:
- The nature of substances and how they react together.
- How chemistry is used in business and industry.
- How our use of raw materials in fuels and manufacturing can affect the global and local environment.
- Understanding of how Chemistry can affect society and the environment.
