Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Demonstrate thorough understanding of "Key Principles of Chemistry" as defined by the Royal Australian Chemical Institute and employ experimental methods of investigation of the defined principles.
02. Apply professional integrity and safe laboratory practices when designing and performing experiments, collecting data and reporting results, in order to satisfy the professional accreditation requirements of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute.
03. Apply relevant mathematical, graphical and computational methods to acquire, manipulate, interpret and evaluate chemical data and summarise results using appropriate significant figures and units.
04. Write coherent descriptions of chemical principles and report experimental results with well supported interpretations using correctly referenced professional prose.
05. Solve abstract, routine and real-world problems of chemical relevance by sourcing, collating and summarising legitimate scientific information.
06. Orally present chemistry matters, supported by legitimate evidence and appropriately defended to peers or professionals.
07. Research, design, and implement laboratory based strategies to tackle complex scenarios as part of a team.
