2. Pre-Requisites

They have not been established, although it is convenient to have passed the course CHEMISTRY, in the first year, and to take, at the same time, the course Inorganic Chemistry I, in the second year. It is advisable that the student be familiar with the theories of chemical bonding, acid-base, redox and formulation in Inorganic Chemistry.

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

The course is located in the second semester of the second year of the Degree in Chemistry and belongs to the Fundamentals of Chemistry Module (Inorganic Chemistry matter). Its character is obligatory. The student will learn the structure, the reactivity and the preparation ( from laboratory and industrial) of the elements and the inorganic compounds of the transition and f-blockmetals of the periodic table. 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 for studying the course Inorganic Compounds (3rd course), as well as other related courses in higher education.

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Final test 0.00% 100.00% Comprehensive examination of the course
Assessment of problem solving and/or case studies 25.00% 0.00% The active participation of the student in the seminars will be valued positively. At the suggestion of the teacher, the problems or questions proposed may be submitted for assessment.
Mid-term tests 70.00% 0.00% They are obligatory to pass the continuous evaluation, in which the student must demonstrate that he has acquired the corresponding knowledge.
Other methods of assessment 5.00% 0.00% Active participation in group tutoring will be evaluated.
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:
    Continuous evaluation means participating in all evaluation activities. The student will pass the course with a minimum grade of 5.

    There will be two progress tests that must be passed with a grade higher than 40% to be able to average with the rest of the evaluation activities. If a student has not passed the first progress test, he or she must make up the test in the ordinary call, in order to pass the course. The second progress test will be carried out in the ordinary call.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    Students who do not follow the continuous assessment will take only one exam in the ordinary call referring to the total of the subject, which must be passed by obtaining a grade equal to or higher than 5.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The same criteria will be used as in the ordinary evaluation. The student who has followed the continuous assessment will only have to examine the progress tests not passed with a grade equal to or greater than 5 points.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
Evaluation criteria not defined
