Course Outcomes

Chem 107

  1. Scientific Practices: Students will develop proficiency as scientists by asking questions, planning and carrying out experiments, analyzing and interpreting data, using models, constructing explanations, supporting arguments with evidence, and clearly and effectively communicating the results of their experiments.
  2. Observation and Inference: Students will demonstrate the ability to carefully observe the outcomes of experiments, use that evidence to make inferences about molecular-level events, and communicate that information using the symbolic notation of chemistry.
  3. Laboratory Techniques and Safety: Students will demonstrate skill at basic laboratory and safety techniques including measuring mass and liquid volumes, transferring chemicals, using a centrifuge, employing appropriate personal protective equipment, and disposing of waste materials properly.
