Synopsis: The subjects CHM1011 and CHM1022 assume a background in VCE chemistry or its equivalent and are highly suited to students wishing to proceed further in chemistry or those requiring a sound chemical knowledge for other subjects. CHM1011 introduces the concepts of modern chemistry through biological, environmental or industrial examples. At the end of CHM1011, students will have gained a general understanding of how atoms and molecules interact with each other and how this affects their bonding, reactivity, 3-D structure and physical properties. The concepts developed within the lectures are strengthened in the laboratory and with the aid of computer-based tutorials and tests.

Assessment: Examinations (3 hours): 60% + Laboratory work: 20% + Computer tests (9 in total): 20%

Contact Hours: Three 1-hour lectures and one 3-hour laboratory or tutorial per week
