Applied Chemistry ZAS123

Cradle Coast, Launceston, Hobart

Introduction

In this unit, you will acquire and apply foundational knowledge of principles and techniques that underpin applied bio-science industries. During a laboratory workshop you will apply selected techniques for monitoring, measuring, and analysing key parameters relating to biochemistry and water quality in applied science.¿¿You will be introduced to a range of topics such as biologically important molecules, biochemical reactions, chemical analysis, states of matter, and acid-base chemistry.¿¿You will apply your knowledge to industry industry-based problems and potential solutions.

This unit also introduces learning through practice by exposing you to authentic learning experiences. These experiences are placed at the centre of learning and assessment, so you have the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours necessary to respond to industry, community and/or global needs.

You will be introduced to:
- a range of methods, tools, techniques and approaches to practice
- principles and perspectives such as values, ethics, empathy and leadership in real world scenarios
- reflection and deliberative thinking as a means of developing knowledge, skills, attitudes and aspirations
- ways of understanding problems and developing solutions through active inquiry.
