Goal 1: Students will develop an understanding of the theoretical methods and models that biochemists use to understand the properties and behavior of matter.
Objective 1.1: Students will gain an understanding of the key concepts fundamental to biochemistry, including, structure, metabolism, and nucleic acid chemistry.
Objective 1.2: Students will predict the behavior of a new substance based on the known behavior of related compounds.
Objective 1.3: Students will apply appropriate theoretical models to explain experimental observations.
Objective 1.4: Students will assess experimental data critically.
Goal 2: Students will gain authentic hands-on experience with the experimental methods used by chemists.
Objective 2.1: Students will use contemporary computer software to study problems in chemistry and present results properly and accurately using figures, graphs, and tables.
Objective 2.2: Students will store, handle, and use chemicals safely and responsibly.
Objective 2.3: Students will assess experimental data critically.
Objective 2.4: Students will apply appropriate theoretical models to explain experimental observations.
Objective 2.5: Students will use accepted laboratory record-keeping methods to record their experimental data.
