Chemistry is the study of the materials that make up everyday life. All materials - including plastics, fuel and metals - are made of chemicals, and understanding these unlocks the doors to our physical and natural world. Chemistry provides learners with knowledge of how substances are made up and how chemical reactions can change things.
