Course Objectives Students will build a basic knowledge of the structure of chemistry.They will analyse scientific concepts and think critically and review the importance and relevance of chemistry in our everyday lives.
Textbook Karen C. Timberlake (2015).Chemistry: An introduction to general, organic and biological chemistry.12th edition, Pearson
Learning Outcomes After successful  completion of the course, the student will be able to:
  1. Define the basic concepts of chemistry (the structure of atoms, chemical bonds, properties of elements etc...).
  2. Classify matter by its state and binding behavior using the Periodic table as a reference.
  3. Understand and explain basic equilibrium chemistry and the principle behind four main classes of reaction.
  4. Recognise in real live organic compounds and understand their functions and structures.
  5. Compare and contrast the chemical behavior and physical properties of common substances.
Teaching Methods Assessment concept is based on continuous work with students during the semester. The examinations (quizzes, midterm, lab tutorials, homeworks and final exam) provide the opportunity for the students to demonstrate their understanding of the course material and their ability to apply critical thinking.
