Chemistry Knowledge-Based Learning Goals
- Understand the physical basis and utility of hierarchical representations of structure (atomic, molecular, macro/supramolecular) at appropriate levels of sophistication.
- Understand the physical basis and utility of spectroscopic and analytical technologies.
- Use energy, kinetics, and thermodynamics to develop a quantitative and mechanistic view of chemical systems.
- Apply structural and energetic models to describing and predicting the functions and interactions of molecules.
- Apply chemical knowledge to socially significant endeavors.
Chemistry Skill-Based Learning Goals
- Solve chemical problems using both qualitative and quantitative methods.
- Design and conduct independent experiments in chemistry, using modern instrumentation.
- Interpret and critically analyze data.
- Critically evaluate primary scientific literature.
- Effectively communicate scientific information in oral, written, and visual formats to scientific and broader audiences.
- Collaborate to pursue common goals.
- Employ responsible and ethical practices in data collection and analysis, documentation, reporting, and attribution.
- Assess safety concerns in the laboratory and employ best practices.
