    This unit assumes no prior knowledge of chemistry and provides a unified introductory course in chemistry as a framework for further studies in chemistry and biochemistry. Topics covered are atomic structure and chemical periodicity, measurement, bonding, oxidation and reduction, acids and bases, precipitation reactions, titrations, phase diagrams, solutions, and gas laws. These important basic principles and concepts are developed using pertinent examples and special topics that highlight the everyday applications of chemistry. This unit is co-taught with unit 1516 Chemistry 1a.

    Learning Outcomes

    On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. Demonstrate good laboratory practice when working with chemicals either individually or in cooperation with others;

    2. Perform experiments that demonstrate their understanding of some of the important basic chemical principles;

    3. Predict the chemical behaviour of a variety of elements and compounds from their understanding of the structure and reactivity of matter; and

    4. Design a hypothetical experiment that predicts/tests chemical behaviour of an element or compound.
