Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

understand the basic concepts of chemistry including atomic structure, the periodic table, bonding, reactions and equations, solutions, and acids and bases

understand basic organic, nuclear and redox chemistry naming, tools and calculations

apply introductory knowledge to an applied chemistry field, e.g. water chemistry, acid sulfate soil, corrosion cause and prevention, polymers

use and care for basic laboratory equipment - including: titrations, gravimetric analysis and preparation of standard solutions.
