Course description

Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2015-16

With this subject, the student would learn the basic terminology of Chemistry. This would allow expressing himself/herself with correct precision in Science, depicting ideas and concepts and the connections between them. Also would allow himself/herself to think in scientific terms and see the relationship between Chemistry, Biology and Marine Sciences bases of knowledge.  The student must learn the capacity to apply and link the chemical and physical laws and principles of Biology and Marine Sciences, applying them to solve chemical problems and understanding the results and discussing if these are correct or not. The student must know the molecules structures and functions and understand the thermodynamic principles in order to expand this knowledge to the study of the biomolecules and their function and its application to bioenergetics. In this subject, the student would gain the required abilities to work in a Chemistry lab, including experimental setups, measure acquisition, and discussion of the results applying chemical and physical laws, manipulating the glassware, reactive, instrumentation and displays with safe. Finally, the student has to be able to study and plan his/her activities to acquiere the knowledge of this subject, individually or working in groups, searching, selecting and synthetazing the information from different bibliographical sources.
