OverviewCourse DescriptionThe course will introduce the student to the fundamental theoretical and practical principles of the Chemical sciences. Students will be encouraged to develop problem solving skills and apply these to the solution of real chemical problems. Assessment is by laboratory reports, quizzes and a final examination.Course IntroductionThe course will introduce the student to the fundamental theoretical and practical principles of the Chemical sciences. Students will be encouraged to develop problem solving skills and apply these to the solution of real chemical problems.Course AimsThe aims of this course are to:1. Introduce students to the basic theory and experimental methods of chemistry2. Encourage students to apply the knowledge and skills gained to practical situations in the chemical, physical, biological, environmental, health and material sciences3. Provide knowledge and skills fundamental to other courses with chemistry requirementsThis is a core course of the Bachelor of Science program, in which students are expected to graduate with an understanding of the fundamental aspects of chemical science. This course also forms the necessary basis for future study of chemistry in the BSc.Learning OutcomesAfter successfully completing this course you should be able to:1 Demonstrate knowledge of basic chemical principles and concepts2 Apply chemical knowledge to solving simple chemistry problems3 Perform simple experimental procedures in the chemical laboratory using appropriate techniques and tools4 Collect, record and interpret qualitative and quantitative chemical data5 Apply workplace health and safety practices in the chemical laboratory
