Course content
Topics of lectures and execises: - Mass and atom structure. - Chemical bond and non-bond interactions. - Molecular structure, chemical formula and nomenclature of inorganic compounds. - Chemical reactions (basic terms, reaction kinetics, thermochemistry and laws, the basic types of chemical reactions - acidobasic, redox, complex, precipitation and other reactions, pH and pKa definitions, buffer solutions). - Calculation in chemistry. - Inorganic chemistry of elements - description, the overview of phys-chem properties of elements, occurrence, reactivity, application... Practical exercises in lab - 2 tasks + preparation of lab protocols.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming), Demonstration, Projection
  • Preparation for classes - 75 hours per semester
  • Class attendance - 10 hours per semester
  • Preparation for exam - 46 hours per semester
  • Preparation for credit - 15 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
The main goal of lecture and practical exercises is to provide selected topics of general and inorganic chemistry. In the section of general chemistry students should achieve background in the following topics: basic terms (mass and its forms, elementary particles, substance, energy), principal chemistry laws, calculations of molar concentration - molarity, atom composition, radioactivity, atomic orbitals, chemical bond, periodic law and groups of chemical elements, chemical formula, chemical reactions. In inorganic chemistry part graduates will achieve knowledge about the occurrence, importance and chemical properties of significant members of periodic system of elements. Practical exercises in lab students will get basic skills in standard lab techniques.
Graduates wil learn basic topics in generak and inoranic chemistry as a necessary prerequisite to attend following-up chemistry - based courses in Chemistry 2, Hydrochemistry and Biochemistry.
Prerequisites
Minimal requirement is chemistry background at a secondary school level and elementary laboratory practice.

Assessment methods and criteria
Combined exam, Test

Conditions for obtaining credit: Students have to pass all credit tests (obtaining more than 50 % points in all tests). Conditions for examination: To get the oral examination, students have to pass the writing test at least at 50 %.
