Researching Chemistry (AH)
According the the SQA Website
"In this Unit, learners will be given the opportunity to gain an understanding of stoichiometric calculations,to develop practical skills and to carry out research in chemistry. Learners will develop the key skills associated with a variety of different practical techniques, including the related calculations. Equipped with the knowledge of chemistry apparatus, techniques and an understanding of concepts, learners will identify, research, plan and safely carry out a chemistry practical investigation of their choice."
The key thing to be aware of, it seems to me, is that this is the new home for the Advanced higher Investigation.
