Measurable Student Learning Outcomes
1. (Application Level) Calculate solution concentrations.
2. (Analysis Level) Analyze concentration data to calculate reaction rates.
3. (Application Level) Calculate equilibrium constants and reaction extents.
4. (Application Level) Calculate equilibrium acidities and pH values.
5. (Analysis Level) Analyze buffer concentrations to calculate titration curves for strong or weak acids.
6. (Application Level) Calculate concentrations of soluble species in reactions.
7. (Analysis Level) Analyze bonding rearrangements to calculate thermodynamic equilibria.
8. (Application Level) Calculate quantities in electrochemistry reactions.
9. (Application Level) Calculate rates of radioactive decay and radiochemical dating.
10. (Analysis Level) Demonstrate the proper techniques for using scientific lab equipment properly and safely to perform a variety of chemical procedures and techniques, such as to obtain chemical data, measure and dispense reagents, to analyze samples by performing titration experiments, or to do chemical qualitative analysis of a solution of multiple ions through selective precipitation of specific ions.
11. (Synthesis Level) Prepare written reports: organize data in a logical format, analyze and interpret data, and report conclusions, using the scientific method. The lab report should be clear, understandable and complete.
