Learning outcomes
Students learn the basic methods how to do school experiments in this course, as well as fundamental rules of safety work in the school laboratory. Emphasis is placed on elementary instrumentation and didactic technique of experiments of general and inorganic chemistry with a special view to chemistry courses of elementary (secondary) school. Graduates are able to both effectively choose and use suitable methods of school experiments and to practise training of basic skills of precise laboratory work with their students in the future pedagogy activity.
Ability to perform basic school experiments of general and inorganic chemistry.
Prerequisites
Secondary school chemistry.

Assessment methods and criteria
Analysis of student's work activities (technical works), Test

Commanding of the basic skills necessary for executing of selected school experiments.
