Not applicable.

Development of capacities for the comprehension of general chemistry and its application in the graphic processes, Comprehension of the chemical variables within the process.

Theoretical component:
1 - Structure of matter: properties of matter; extensive and intensive properties; density and temperature (scales). Classification of matter: mixtures and pure substances. The atoms. The discovery of subatomic particles. Atomic number and isotopes. Ions. Periodic table. Periodic variation of metals, non-metals and metaloids. Electronic configurations and the periodic table: variation of atomic properties.
2 - Chemical bonding: Octet rule. Covalent bonds, ionic and metal. Nomenclature of ionic compounds.
3 stoichiometry: atomic mass, mole, molar mass and chemical reactions. Hit chemical equations; solutions and molarity. Preparation of solutions for weighing, diluting and from concentrated solutions.

Practical component:
Practical work # 1 - Lab work for the ambiance of students to chemistry laboratory, knowledge of commonly used material, the use of analytical balances and familiarization with the descriptive statistical data analysis.
Practical work # 2 - laboratory work for the implementation of the stoichiometry of knowledge in the preparation of solutions for weighing, dilution and from concentrated solutions.

Evaluation Methodology
Continuous assessment has practical and theoretical components. A minimum mark of 10 is required for both components. The final mark is the weighted average of the two components: practical (40%) and theoretical (60%)
