Objective

Basic Science 2 (Chemistry) introduces basic concepts and key ideas in chemistry along with providing opportunities to learn reasoning skills and a new way of recognizing the transformations of matter in our environment. This course is a substantial introduction to the fundamental behavior of matter and energy.
Our primary objective in this course is to build a good foundation in chemistry. Applying scientific methods of observation and experimentation is another objective of this course to prove that this approach leads to the development of scientific theories.


Course Outcomes :

  • Recognize the subatomic particles and the atomic structure.
  • Memorize the functional groups in organic chemistry and its chemical and physical properties.
  • Calculate gas parameters using gas laws.
  • Compare Chemical bonds.
  • Differentiate between acids and bases.
  • Justify how chemicals react "for simple chemical reactions".
  • Show the structure activity relationship for some medicines.
