Availability

Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

Syllabus

This unit follows on from Introduction to Chemistry and extends on the foundations of chemistry enabling later studies in chemistry and biochemistry. Topics covered are atomic structure and chemical periodicity, bonding, oxidation and reduction, acids and bases, precipitation reactions, titrations, phase diagrams, solutions, gas laws, and structure and functionality in organic chemistry. These important basic principles and concepts are developed using pertinent examples and special topics that highlight the everyday applications of chemistry.

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 a group setting;

2. Apply skills in setting up simple experiments to understand some of the important basic chemical principles; and

3. Demonstrate skills in predicting the chemical behaviours of a variety of elements and compounds from their understanding of the structure and reactivity of matter.
