Student Learning Outcomes (if available):
Upon completion of this course:
1. Students will be able to assign oxidation states, balance and apply concepts of free energy to redox equations.
2. Students will be able to identify different types of acids and bases.
3. Students will be able to solve problems in aqueous equilibrium and acid/base chemistry, and apply concepts of free energy to the equilibrium reactions.
4. Students will be able to explain how temperature, pressure and other atmospheric conditions affect reaction equilibria and kinetics.
5. Students will be able to describe the fundamental properties of solids, liquids and gases and phase transformations between them.
6. Students will be able to have a working knowledge of basic laboratory techniques, such as titrations and pH measurements.
7. Students will be able to articulate and follow ethical principles in a laboratory context.
8. Students will be able to connect chemical principles to real-world problems by analyzing scientific data related to a problem of societal or technological concern.
