Objectives

The mission of Chemistry is to investigate the properties of every matter as well as their composition, structure and changing pattern. This subject adopts the teaching direction that starts with social and daily life questions followed on by investigative activities including experiments, data collection and discussion, and finally with the results being harvested, students will do analysis and make informed decision. With this, it is hoped that students’ knowledge towards the diversity and patterns of matters in the nature will be enhanced. In order to increase the competitiveness of the students in this changing world and to cultivate the idea of environmental protection and sustainable development so that they will become civilians upgraded with good sense in science, we seek increments in the student the interest towards chemistry, sense of chemistry, attitude towards science, familiarity towards the scientific method, ability to solve problem, ability in self-initiated study, logical thinking and communicative ability.

 

Emphasis in teaching:

  • Cultivate the initiation and interest of students in studying Chemistry.
  • Cultivate the logical thinking of students
  • Train students to be able to acknowledge, analyse, criticize and express effectively his/her opinion.
  • Promote active and independent learning and good attitude in searching for knowledge.
  • Cultivate the students’ attitude towards environmental protection.
  • Cultivate the students to use chemistry knowledge in their daily life.
  • Further improve the results in public examination, including the passing and credit rate.
  • Enhance the ability of NSS students such that they will increase their competitiveness in achieving high in the NSS curriculum.
