Description

Fundamental principles, essential facts and applications of chemistry to the fields of environmental and archaeological science.

Learning Outcomes

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

1.

Describe and explain the properties of matter and relate to the physical environment.

2.

Describe the structural characteristics of organic functional groups and homologous series of aliphatic compounds.

3.

Synthesise, purify, separate and characterise some organic compounds with due regard to safety procedures.

4.

Prepare chemical standards, perform a range of analyses, draw calibration curves and perform calculations.

5.
Communicate and present scientific information in a variety of forms.

Module Assessment Strategies

 The module will be assessed on the basis of continuous assessment (theory and practical) and final theory examination.

Self-assessment tests and quizzes and other forms of formative assessment are provided to students to check their own progress towards achieving the learning outcomes of the module and to motivate learning. Laboratory skills and report-writing ability are assessed as part of the practical work performed during the module. Regular summative tests are used to encourage engagement with the module, monitor progress and provide feedback.
