This module will introduce students to concepts of physics that are important in learning chemistry including work and energy, simple harmonics and waves, electricity and magnetism, and optics.
This module will introduce students to the three broad employment areas for chemistry: research, teaching or industrial positions. The lecture portion will cover fundamental aspects of being a professional chemist including safety, report writing, project management, and teaching skills. Students will then spend 60 hours with research faculty, on an industrial field trip or serving as a teacher's aide. Assessment will be by coursework and a written report.
