Core Ideas

In the current H2 Chemistry Syllabus 9729, content is organised as two levels, with core ideas (foundational topics) forming the bedrock on which ‘further learning and understanding of chemical phenomena and reactions’, i.e. the extension topics, are built.

The three Core Ideas of Chemistry are
  • Matter
    • Atomic Structure
  • Structure & Properties
    • Chemical Bonding
    • The Gaseous State
    • The Periodic Table
  • Transformation
    • The Mole Concept & Stoichiometry
    • Chemical Energetics
    • Reaction Kinetics
    • Chemical Equilibria
The concepts in these Core Ideas are inter-related and form the basis for which further learning and understanding of chemical phenomena and reactions is built upon. (See H2 Chemistry Syllabus 9729.)
