Learning objectives
The General Chemistry course aims to provide students with a general basis of Chemistry. The course aims to introduce students to the language and methodology of chemical science and to provide them with the tools necessary to understand the teachings of Chemistry through the study of nature's elements and their chemical compounds as well as the examination of chemical reactions and their relative parameters. Interest is given to the study of stoichiometrics, chemical solutions and balances, and in particular to balances in solutions. The course will allow the student to acquire the basic chemistry information necessary to understand chemical processes, even very complex ones, such as those that take place in living organisms or in the environment. The laboratory work aims to provide students with training to eventually work within a laboratory environment.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the General Chemistry teaching, the student must possess the basic theoretical scientific knowledge and acquire adequate skills to address the scientific topics of SSCTA course. The acquisition of good knowledge of stoichiometric calculus, factors that influence the equilibrium of a chemical reaction, the properties of ideal solutions, the structure/properties relationship of atoms will endow the student with the ability to understand and to autonomously face on the applicative and professionalizing chemical disciplines of the course in SSCTA.

The laboratory training module provides the basic preparation necessary for the succeding laboratory activities dealing with the professionalizing goals of SSCTA course. In particular, the lab experiences and the final reports, showing experimental procedures and results, will endow the student with critical and judgment ability necessary for drafting of future scientific reports.
