Description: Aims:
To introduce students to a variety of advanced practical chemistry techniques that involves planning and executing experimental work and reporting the results in a number of formats.

Learning Outcomes:
After studying this unit, students should be able to:
* Demonstrate skills in planning and executing practical problems in Chemistry;
* Work in a team - allocation and correlation of tasks and collection of data;
* Present the results of an investigation in written reports;
* Demonstrate experimental skills appropriate to their chosen programme of study.

Skills:
Numeracy (F, A)
Problem solving (T, F, A)
Oral communication (F)

Content:
Students will work in either small groups or singly on problems in inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. These will be programme specific, and will vary according to pre-requisites study. A problem will be set and appropriate experimental protocols will need to be researched and designed. After completion of the work, a variety of reporting formats will be used to emphasise students' communication skills.
