Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. 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. perform calculations relevant to the chemical sciences including, but not limited to, problems involving: chemical stoichiometry, chemical equilibrium, and thermochemistry.
3. perform basic manipulations relevant to a chemical laboratory.
4. 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.
5. articulate and follow ethical principles in the laboratory context.
6. connect chemical principles to real-world problems and issues of societal and technological importance.
