2. Pre-Requisites

 

It is convenient to have passed the CHEMISTRY subject, first year, and at the same time take the Inorganic Chemistry II subject, second year. It is advisable that the student is familiar with the theories of chemical bonding, acid-base, redox and with the formulation in Inorganic Chemistry 

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

 

The subject is of an annual nature teaching the theory (6 ECTS) in the first semester and the practice (3 ECTS) in the second semester of the second year of the Degree in Chemistry and belongs to the Fundamentals of Chemistry Module (Inorganic Chemistry). Its character is mandatory. The student will learn the structure, reactivity and preparation (at the laboratory and industrial level) of the elements of the main groups of the periodic table and their main inorganic compounds. This knowledge is essential to understand the properties and practical applications of these substances and their impact on current applied chemistry. The acquisition of this knowledge is important to study the Inorganic Chemistry II subject and the Inorganic Compounds (3rd Course) subject, as well as other related subjects from higher courses

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Final test 0.00% 60.00%
Mid-term tests 60.00% 0.00% non-continuous evaluation with a final exam of the entire subject matter
Laboratory sessions 40.00% 40.00% Theoretical final exam of the experiences carried out in the laboratory practices
Total: 100.00% 100.00%  
According to art. 6 of the UCLM Student Evaluation Regulations, it must be provided to students who cannot regularly attend face-to-face training activities the passing of the subject, having the right (art. 13.2) to be globally graded, in 2 annual calls per subject , an ordinary and an extraordinary one (evaluating 100% of the competences).

Evaluation criteria for the final exam:
  • Continuous assessment:
    The course may be passed through continuous assessment once the two parts, theoretical and practical, have been passed with 5.0 points in each of them.A minimum of 4 points out of 10 must be obtained to average both tests.
    The qualification of the theoretical part will correspond to 6 points of the global qualification. Additionally, the practical part will involve the remaining 4 points up to a total of 10.
    Laboratory practices are MANDATORY AND PRESENTIAL.

    The Inorganic Chemistry I subject will have a theoretical evaluation of 60% and a practical evaluation of 40%,
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    For students who do not pass the subject by continuous assessment, there will be a written exam with questions of theory and / or practices.
    The qualification of the theoretical part will correspond to 60% of the overall qualification. Additionally, the practical part will account for the remaining 40%. The approved one is 5 out of 10
    A minimum of 4 points out of 10 must be obtained to average both tests.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
If the student has not completed the subject through continuous assessment for just cause, they may take the extraordinary test
The qualification of the practical part will be maintained if it has been passed in the ordinary call only until the extraordinary call of the current academic year.
