Course Information

Course Objectivs

1 With this course is intended, using the knowledge previously acquired in other courses and acquired on that course, endow the student with the scientific and laboratory features that enable them to understand, the relationship between the elements/inorganic compounds and the biological systems, the importance of those at the level of biochemical processes and in the preparation of materials and bioinorganic compounds. Simultaneously, it is expected that the student understands the scientific and technological contribution of Inorganic Chemistry for the development of Bioinorganic Chemistry and Materials, and for the progress of society.

2 It is hoped that with the realization of the lab work, students acquire expertise in experimental techniques, characteristics of Bioinorganic and Inorganic Chemistry. It is also hoped that students will be able to relate the theoretical material with practical content of the lab work.

Evaluation Criteria

Classification Type: Quantitative (0-20)
Evaluation Model: B
Evaluation Methodology: Theoretical evaluation - two exams (35% each towards the final grade) + Evaluation Practice (30%). Recap of one theoretical exams on the complementary period. The exams are intended to measure the knowledge and skills acquired by the students throughout the semester. Practical evaluation: the laboratory work will be developed in the final part of the semester. The work focus on a intensive laboratory component, allows the students to develop and strengthen skills of organization, work planning, analysis and presentation of results, report writing, oral communication and teamwork. Except in special cases, enrolled in the regulation of assessment and student learning at the University of Madeira, students may only recover on the complementary period one of failed evaluation.
