Student Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of this course:
1. Students will be able to explain and apply foundational theories/laws of chemistry including, but not limited to: the atomic theory of matter, gas laws, the first law of thermodynamics, kinetic molecular gas theory, and basic quantum theories.
2. Students will be able to perform calculations relevant to the chemical sciences including, but not limited to, problems involving: chemical stoichiometry, chemical equilibrium, and thermochemistry.
3. Students will be able to perform basic manipulations relevant to a chemical laboratory.
4. Students will be able to formulate hypotheses based on scientific laws and theories, collect data/evidence relevant to these hypotheses, reach conclusions based on the collected evidence, and defend those conclusions.
