Textbook SectionsMajor TopicDetailed Objectives
3
SafetyIdentify, locate, and know how to use laboratory safety equipment. Includes aprons, goggles, gloves, fire extinguishers, fire blanket, safety shower, eye wash, broken glass container, and fume hood.
4
Describe procedures that should be taken in lab emergencies: fire in lab or on person, chemical spills on floor, counter (distinguish between corrosive material and flammable material), chemical spill on skin, eyes, gas leak, toxic fume inhalation, cut skin, broken glass, unconscious person
5
Describe the purpose and use of an MSDS
6
7
1.5 to 1.8Sig figsCan report a measurement to the appropriate number of significant figures (remembers to estimate a digit)
8
Precision and accuracyReport the degree of uncertainty for a given piece of lab equipment (some you need to know: balance: ± 0.01 g, some have graduated scales: graduated cylinder, some say on the glassware: beaker)
9
Metric systemExplain the purpose of uncertainties
10
Interpret the uncertainty in the data (meaning of a very large or very small uncertainty, precision of results)
11
Determine whether a set of data is accurate, precise, both or neither
12
State the purpose of repeated trials
13
State two definitions of precision
14
Calculate average
15
Calculate percent error to determine experiment's accuracy
16
Explain the purpose of significant figures, including giving example of their use/importance.
17
Count the number of significant figures in a given measurement.
18
Can round a number to a given number of significant digits
19
Can state and use the rule for adding and subtracting measurements.
20
Can state and use the rule for multiplying and dividing measurements.
21
Dimensional analysisUse dimensional analysis to convert units (changing a single unit g → lbs)
22
change a single unit in a multi-unit number ( g/mol → lbs/mol)
23
Change both units in a multi-unit number (g/mol → lbs/atom)
24
Use dimensional analysis with metric system
25
Define derived unit
26
Density and other derived unitsCalculate density of a substance
27
Use density to relate mass and volume
28
2.3 to 2.7BasicsDistinguish between pure substance, mixture, compound, element, atom, molecule, solution, ion, molecular formula, formula unit
29
Distinguish between organic and inorganic compounds
30
Outline the differences between ionic and covalent bonding
31
Explain differences in naming, structure and basic properties of ionic and covalent bonding
32
Predict ions formed based on PT location
33
Label families on periodic table: metals, nonmetals, metalloids, halogens, nobel gases, alkali metals, alkaline earth metals, transition metals
34
identify # of electrons, protons, neutrons
35
Outline basic structure of atom (no orbitals)
36
Define isotope
37
Calculate average atomic mass based on mass spec data
38
Outline how mass spectrometer works
39
State 7 diatomic gases
40
Distinguish between periods and groups
41
LO 1.14 The student is able to use data from mass spectrometry to identify the elements and the masses of individual atoms of a specific element. [See SP 1.4, 1.5]
