Description

This module introduces student to fundamentals of Organic Chemistry and Physical Chemistry.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Describe the structural characteristics of the various homologous series and functional groups.

2.

Outline the chemical reactivity of different families of organic compounds.

3.

Explain the basic principles the kinetic theory and of the Gas Laws.

4.

Identify the factors which affect the rate of a chemical reaction.

5.

Solve a range of practical problems through the safe use of chemical equipment and techniques.

6.
Communicate by written and verbal means, the results of theory and practical based exercises in a logical and coherent fashion.

Teaching and Learning Strategies

This module will be delivered full‑time. It will include lectures, tutorials and laboratory practicals.THis approach is expected to address student learning needs. Moodle will be used as a repository of educational resources and as a means of assessment. .

Module Assessment Strategies

Students will be assessed using the Moodle learning platform and a range of Multiple Choice Questions. Further assessment methods include laboratory performance and end of year examination.

The student must reach an assigned gate (mark) in the final exam and achieve 40% overall in order to pass the module.

Repeat Assessments

.Students may repeat Continuous Assessment and / or Final Theory Exam as required

Required Reading
2015-01-02 Chemistry: Principles and Reactions Cengage Learning
ISBN 130507937X ISBN-13 9781305079373

This latest edition of CHEMISTRY: PRINCIPLES AND REACTIONS takes students directly to the crux of chemistry's fundamental concepts and allows you to efficiently cover all topics found in a typical general chemistry book. Based on the authors' extensive teaching experience, the book includes rigorous graded and concept-driven examples, as well as examples that focus on molecular reasoning and understanding. The Eighth Edition features a new and innovative example format, new talking labels within artwork, 25% new or revised problems, Chemistry: Beyond the Classroom essays that highlight some of the most up-to-date uses of chemistry, and end-of-chapter questions and Key Concepts that correlate to OWLv2, the #1 online homework and tutorial system for chemistry. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.

ISBN 9781305580343 ISBN-13 1305580346

The eleventh edition was carefully reviewed with an eye toward strengthening the content available in OWLv2, end-of-chapter questions, and updating the presentation. Nomenclature changes and the adoption of IUPAC periodic table conventions are highlights of the narrative revisions, along with changes to the discussion of d orbitals. In-text examples have been reformatted to facilitate learning, and the accompanying Interactive Examples in OWLv2 have been redesigned to better parallel the problem-solving approach in the narrative. New Capstone Problems have been added to a number of chapters.
