Course Competencies

- Follow laboratory guidelines and established laboratory practices to ensure safety for self and others.
- Use appropriate scientific equipment, measurement practices, and scientific method to effectively complete laboratory tasks both individually and in group or partnership.
- Demonstrate proficiency with measurements and mathematical formulas or techniques and utilize these techniques to interpret data, solve problems, and validate solutions.
- Describe the composition and properties of matter from the subatomic level to the macroscopic level.
- Predict the physical and chemical properties and other trends of elements and describe the type of chemical bonding possible and type of ion formed based on position on Periodic Table.
- Apply definitions of oxidation and reduction to chemical systems, and assign oxidation numbers to elements in a molecule or ion.
- Explain modern atomic theory, describe the location of electrons and the sizes and shapes of atomic orbitals.
- Assign quantum numbers to electrons, and write and interpret electronic configurations.
- Write Lewis Dot structures and predict the three dimensional geometry for molecules and ions, and identify dipole molecules.
- Demonstrate proficiency in interpreting and writing formulas for chemical compounds, and in nomenclature of ionic and covalent compounds.
- Differentiate the relationship between the mass of a substance and number of particles or moles of that substance.
- Explain, describe, and write balanced chemical equations and net ionic equations for chemical reactions.
- Calculate the amount of any reactant or product in a chemical reaction using stoichiometry principles.
- Use the kinetic molecular theory and gas laws to explain or predict the general behavior of gases, and solve problems using mathematical formulas for gases.
- Use the kinetic molecular theory to explain the behavior in liquids and solids as compared to gases, and relate crystal types to their physical properties.
- Apply thermodynamic principles to describe and solve problems involving calorimetry and enthalpy.
- Describe the solution process and calculate concentration in terms of molarity, molality, and mass percent.
- Apply stoichiometric principles to solve problems involving solutions and describe how to prepare a given solution.
- Describe noncovalent interactions that occur between atoms, molecules, or ions, and predict physical properties based on these interactions.
- Describe the colligative properties of solutions and solve mathematical problems using colligative property data.
