Course Description

This course targets students who under performed in Chemistry 2 in the second semester of the previous academic year, and allows them to re-study content related to Chemistry 2. The aim is to This course targets students who under performed in Chemistry 2 in the second semester of the previous academic year, and allows them to re-study the contents related to Chemistry 2. The aim is to help them acquire a basic knowledge of chemistry and the ability to think in terms of chemistry, which is necessary for students of the Faculty of Science and Technology. In this course, we particularly concentrate on changes in matter (① chemical reactions and heat, ② reaction rates and chemical equilibrium, ③ acids and bases and their reactions, ④ oxidation and reduction reactions, ⑤ batteries and electrolysis) and inorganic compounds (⑥ the properties of non-metallic elements, ⑦ the properties of metallic elements) that are considered to be particularly important.

Course Objectives

This course targets students who under performed in Chemistry 2 in the second semester of the previous academic year, and allows them to re-study the contents related to Chemistry 2. The aim is to help them acquire a basic knowledge of chemistry and the ability to think in terms of chemistry, which is necessary for students of the Faculty of Science and Technology.

Grading Policy

Performance is evaluated based on in-class quizzes (30%) and periodic examinations (70%).
Overall feedback is provided and test answers are explained during the final lecture.

Requirements(Assignments)

Before class: Read in advance the scope of the next lecture in the designated textbook, and sort out the points that you do not understand or have issues with before attending the class. (1 hour)
After class: Revise your answers to the quiz held during the previous class, and then make sure you can completely answer the quiz without looking at the answers. (2 hours)

Note

Prepare the special notes for this class and a scientific calculator (required when doing the quizzes).
