Chemistry is either a compulsory or an elective component of the first year, first semester teaching program of many of the science degree and science-based joint degree programs at tertiary institutions including Griffith University. If you have enrolled in one of these degree programs and you have a limited background in chemistry or you lack confidence in your abilities to ‘handle’ some of the basic principles of chemistry, we have prepared an intensive bridging course to help you develop self-confidence in some of the more fundamental concepts of the chemical sciences. This course is designed to introduce students to the language and elementary concepts used in first year, first semester chemistry. Also included will be instruction on the use of basic mathematics in chemistry, particularly, the use of straightforward algebra, the use of very large and very small numbers (scientific notation), exponents, significant figures, logs and the use of calculators in routine chemical calculations.

Date: 16 - 19 February, 2021
Time: 9 am to 5 pm.
Venue: TBA
Fees: $170 (inc. GST) for the four-day program (all notes and materials supplied)

Instructors: Associate Professor Sarah Cresswell
