Teaching is one of the basic training activities of the degree course in Technologies for conservation and restoration, and allows students to acquire knowledge and understanding of the main concepts of general chemistry, fundamental cultural baggage in all scientific disciplines It is also important as it determines the first contact with a chemical laboratory, with its work and safety issues. The educational objectives of the teaching are: 1) to develop the ability to solve general chemistry problems by applying the main laws; 2) encourage and stimulate the use of logical and deductive reasoning in the resolution of these problems; 3) develop the ability to present concepts and use a language and a nomenclature to expose scientific reasoning in a formal way, both orally and by writing; the laboratory is a useful tool for translating the concepts presented in class into practice.
1. Knowledge and understanding
A) Know the main laws and the main concepts of general chemistry concerning nomenclature, the balancing of reactions and the stoichiometric calculation.
B) Know the main features of the process of acquisition and processing of experimental data.
2. Ability to apply knowledge and understanding
A) Knowing how to use the laws and concepts learned to solve theoretical and practical problems in a logical and deductive way.
B) Know how to create a collection of experimental data (alone and in groups) and a consequent elaboration that results
consisting in the final results, to be made explicit by writing a scientific report.
3. Ability to judge
i) Being able to evaluate the logical consistency of the results to which the application of the learned physical laws is carried out, both in the field theoretical both in the case of experimental data.
ii) Being able to recognize errors through a critical analysis of the applied method.
it is advisable for the student to know the concepts and methods related to mathematical calculation, as well as having the necessary notions of logaritms.
In relation to the training objectives and expected learning outcomes, shown in the relevant sections, the contents of the course can be divided as follows:
i) chemical nomenclature, atomistic concepts, electronic configuration and periodic table
ii) reactions and their balancing, the concept of mole, stoichiometric calculation
iii) gases, solutions, concentration, colligative properties

Modality of verification of learning
The verification of learning takes place through a written test with numerical exercises and an oral one, which consists of a series of questions to which the student must answer demonstrating to know and know how to expose the topics of the entire program carried out with language and use properties of scientific symbology in the chemical field.
Teaching is organized in lectures including examples. The laboratory proposes experiences of synthesis and characterization closely linked to the contents delivered frontally.
Accessibility, Disability and Inclusion

Accommodation and support services for students with disabilities and students with specific learning impairments:
Ca’ Foscari abides by Italian Law (Law 17/1999; Law 170/2010) regarding supportservices and accommodation available to students with disabilities. This includes students with mobility, visual, hearing and other disabilities (Law 17/1999), and specific learning impairments (Law 170/2010). In the case of disability or impairment that requires accommodations (i.e., alternate testing, readers, note takers or interpreters) please contact the Disability and Accessibility Offices in Student Services:
