Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Learn basic chemical concepts: atomic structure, chemical bonding, kinetics and thermodynamics. To realize the mutual connection and interconnection of these terms, learn to seek and find the connection - Periodicity characteristics. Apply acquired knowledge of general chemistry of the system of elements. Learning to work with the periodic table - to be able to position the elements in the periodic system to derive its basic chemical and physical properties.
