Topical Outline with Specific Objectives I. Mathematical Skills A. Systems of Measurement and unit analysis B. Scientific Notation C. Significant figures D. Data interpretation and analysis: direct proportions inverse proportions linear equations accuracy and precision Learning Outcomes It is expected that the student will: 1. Use SI units and their accepted alternatives in chemistry 2. Demonstrate skills in measuring mass, volume and temperature 3. Describe the imprecise nature of all measurements 4. Use graphing techniques to represent or analyze experimental data 5. Determine the number of significant figures in a measured quantity and relate to the uncertainty. 6. Round off calculated results to the appropriate number of significant figures. 7. Correctly determine the unit of a derived quantity. 8. Show proficiency in using exponential notation. II. Classification of Matter Emphasis on nano-macro visualization A. Pure substances: elements and compounds B. Mixtures: homogeneous and heterogeneous C. States of Matter D. Physical properties and its uses in the separation (purification) and identification of substances E. Chemical properties/chemical changes 1. Distinguish physical from chemical changes; extensive from intensive properties 2. Define BP, MP (FP), sublimation point

Learning Outcomes It is expected that the student will: 1. Define matter. 2. Describe and distinguish different types of matter (both macro and nanoscale views) 3. Describe the states of matter in terms of macroscale properties as well as nanoscale structure, interparticle distances and motion, and energies. 4. Classify a given material as an element, compound or mixture using the properties of the material. 5. Relate the observable (macroscopic) characteristics and properties of elements compounds and mixtures to the concept of atoms and molecules. 6. Relate heat changes that occur during a phase change to the energy required or released when separating or combining species that attract or repel. 7.
