Further information on descriptions 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 a written report and laboratory book;
* Demonstrate experimental skills appropriate to their chosen programme of study.

Numeracy (F, A)
Problem solving (T, F, A)
Oral communication (F)
Team work (F).

Students will work in small groups on a problem in either inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. The allocation will be programme specific, and will vary according to pre-requisite 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.
