Gen Chem Objectives:CHM 1100; Atoms FirstObjectives ARE test questions.When studying each Module, do constantly review yourobjectives to make certain that you are understanding all of the required topics.For Labs, doremember to review the CHM 1100 General Chemistry Guide for weekly videos (see details atthe end of this handout).Course OverviewPerform basic chemistry measurements.Describe the structures of atoms and molecules.Explain the differences between different types of bonding.Convert between the names of simple chemical compounds and their formulas.Compare the three main states of matter.Distinguish among different types of basic chemical reactions.Module 1: Introduction, Measurements and Math are the foundational skills used in everyexperiment.Interpret the scientific methodoDefine the terms Observation, Hypothesis, Experiment, Scientific Law, Scientific Theory.When given an example, be able to identify any of the above.Know the International System (SI) of units (e.g., kilo, milli, micro, centi, nano)oBe able to convert between units (i.e., calculate unit conversions).You can use dimensional analysis (key skill) or proportional reasoning.oBe able to convert between English and SI given the appropriate conversion factors.Understand Significant Figures.oConvert numbers into scientific notation; use the correct numbers of significant figures.oDetermine the uncertainty in a measurement and the number of significant figures of ameasurement.oReport the correct number of significant figures in both calculated and measured values.oBe able to conduct Unit conversions; Understand and conductarithmetic operations.Define precision and accuracy.Given a sample data set, be able to distinguish between accurateand precise measurements.Calculate density.oUse the density equation to solve for mass or volume.Be able to report the correctnumber of significant figures using scientific notation when appropriate.Define Chemistry as the study of matter and its changesoDefine matter.Understand the differences between pure substances and mixtures.oBe able to describe the three common states of matter (i.e., solid, liquid, gas) in terms ofenergy, particle speed, particle separation, particle attraction, etc. (Later we will discussKinetic Molecular Theory which applies only to gases).oDistinguish between gases, liquids, and solids.oKnow the vocabulary:homogeneous, heterogenous, crystalline solid, mixture, pure,compound, element, atom, molecule.oIdentify bonding and structure differences in the three states of matter.Chemistry Objectives: Atoms First, Page 1 of 8
oKnow the terms heterogenous and homogenous as they apply to mixtures.Given anexample, be able to describe the mixture as heterogenous or homogeneous.
