Welcome to Be Prepared: Everything you should know for 1st year chemistry!

These Pre-Chemistry online modules are designed to function as chemistry preparation for first year chemistry students. It is particularly useful for students who, for various reasons, are otherwise not confident in their preparation for first year university level chemistry. However, the module can be used as a practical and valuable review for all students. The module focuses on the development of fundamental numeracy and problem solving skills that are widely applicable to students in a variety of first year chemistry courses including those directed to students in life science, engineering and natural and physical sciences. These modules function effectively in both online, hybrid or even as preparation for entirely traditionally delivered courses.

Module Learning Objectives:

Following successful completion of the module, students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate fluency, through interactive problem sets and quizzes, in describing experimental data in chemistry with clear understanding of the concepts – variance, significance, precision and accuracy.
  • Consistently develop responsive approaches to solving qualitative and quantitative problems using robust problem-solving skills, including unit analysis and problem visualization.
  • Apply mathematical functions fluidly and flexibly for expressing very large and small numbers using both linear and exponential scales.
