Learning outcomes
The aim of this course is to supply information to students about fundamentals of chemical analysis, i.e. to introduce them the basic principles of qualitative and quantitative analyses of compounds.
Students after graduation of this course are able to orientate oneself in the field of qualitative and mainly quantitative analytical methods, is introduced with the principles of individual volumetric and gravimetric methods including the sample pre-treatment methods.
High school knowledge of analytical chemistry
----- or -----

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination, Written examination, Student performance assessment

The examination consists of written part followed by the oral examination. During the semester the gained knowledge of students from lectures and seminar practices are checked up by two written tests which results are the part of the total classification. Current check of study - 2 written tests - 30 % of grade, written part of examination - 10 %, oral examination - 60 %.
