Course Description

Chemistry is the science that focuses on learning the characteristics and structure of all matter of which the universe is composed. Chemistry is central to nature and our everyday life. The learning objectives of this course will first focus on becoming familiar with looking at nature form with a chemical viewpoint as well as acquiring an understanding of chemistry. Subsequently, by looking at materials and phenomena that are integral to our life, students will gain a fundamental understanding of basic chemistry. By participating in this course, each student will improve her/his knowledge of chemistry and scientific methods, strengthen problem-solving skills, and learn to communicate in a scientific manner.
The lecture is planned to be in line with the text content while using OHC and board book in combination. In addition, although this class is mainly lecture type, we will shortly discuss questions on exercise problems or lecture contents within the lecture time.
In this lecture, you will be able to acquire the knowledge and the ability to DP3 of the Department of Information and Electronic Engineering.

Course Objectives

(1) By understanding the structure of the atom, you can acquire the concept of ion and molecule.
(2) By understanding the fundamentals of the chemical bond, you can acquire knowledge about the property of the materials.
(3) By understanding the concept of the amount of substance (mol), you can acquire the ability on the chemical stoichiometry.
(4) By understanding the concept of acid and base, you can acquire the knowledge about each property.

Grading Policy

(1) Attendance confirmation is taken in each time, and students who do not attend more than 2/3 classes are not allowed to take the regular exam.
(2) The results of the mid-term exam and the regular exam will be 50% each, and they will be combined into the final evaluation.
(3) It is planned to answer and explain the exercises in the textbook and handouts, and also to confirm the degree of progress of understanding appropriately.
