Organically Changes When Leaving School

| Malaysia | Learning | July 24, 2017

(I notice something strange in our Form Four (4th year of secondary school) chemistry textbook so I ask my teacher about it after class.)

Me: “Teacher, this table says that ALL organic compounds don’t dissolve in water, but sugar is organic and it dissolves in water.”

Teacher: “That’s a polar compound. You’ll learn about them in Form Six.”

(So the laws of chemistry are different in secondary school versus pre-university?)
