Chemistry Course Year 1 Subjects (May intake)

In this post, I will briefly introduce the subject that I had attended in my year 1 trimesters.

Year 1 Trimester 1
1. Atomic Structure, Bonding and Periodicity
2. Computer Systems and Applications  
3. Calculus and Algebra
4. General Physics
5. Sun Zi’s Art of War and Business Strategies
6. Emotional Intelligence at the Workplace
7 Chemistry Laboratory I

Subject 1 consists of three parts. Atomic Structure is more to the atom itself, go deeper to the subshell of element.(can you recall that the electron arrangement of Br is 2.8.18.7, this subject will explain why 18 will occur there.) . They start to explain the effect of light toward to atom as the foundation before proceed to spectroscopy. Periodicity explains on the ionization energy, affinity energy, radius of the atom/ion across the period and over a group. Bonding is something like polarity of the bonding, intermolecular forces and hybridization.
Besides, this subject also illustrates the molecular shape, bond angle. I just scanned through my lecturer note and give a brief summary on what I had learnt.

Subject 2 is about computer system, history, input(keyboard, mouse, data, binary system), operating system (program), output (monitor, printer, fax,), working principle of CD ROM, Harddisk, type of CD, internet.
Apart from those knowledge related to computer, we also come across on web page design. We learn to understand the HTML code, create table, embed video, music in web page, insert figure and adjust the size of the figure, design the background and blak blak blak. (Basically this help me a lot in designing my blog sicne those code helped me a lot.)

Subject 3, differentiation, integration in advanced. My friends who studied STPM felt familiar to this subject. So they have close syllabus I guess. But STPM cover more. We learn also vector, matrix, complex number, ordinary differential equation. This subject is really not my cup of tea. So I just briefly go through…. (nightmare keep on prompting out in my mind. Those who dislike A-math, be careful in this subject)

Subject 4, study on solid (type of bonding, attractive force involved in bonding, kinetic moment of atom), liquid (pressure, buoyancy, flow, viscosity, surface tension), gas (PV=nRT, Boyle, Charles), light, heat, interference.

Subject 5, introduce about Sunzi’s Art of War by translating them from Chinese to English and linked to business field by showing applications.

Subject 6, some kind of elective subject that let us understand what is emotion and how to control them to become a person with high emotional intelligence. We carried out activities in class, assignment to visit orphanage house and lecturer note is not that important since is a pass or failed subject.

Subject 7, is some lab work on the course that we studied. For example, we studied Atomic structure in this trimester, so we will carry out some experiment related to this subject and we need to write report on those experiments as well. This is just a beginning on the nightmare of report writing.

Year 1 Trimester 2
1. Organization and Human Resource
2. Introduction to Sociology
3. Pendidikan Moral
4 Introduction to Japanese Language

Subject 1 introduce about management, organization (structure, culture) and how human resource function in the organization (HR planning, Recruitment, Employee selection, training. motivation, power, team, communication, conflict, negotiation, employee relation)

Subject 2 is about sociology and their effect to the society in many terms. Sociolization, Social inequality, health, behaviours were the field that we discussion. This is an interesting subject that bring us along with brief idea on sociology, yet, is a tough subject for science student.

Subject 3….. pendidikan moral…. What is the learning outcome that I should share? No more nilai nilai murni and memorizing the definition of each nilai murni. (I believe those who get graduated from secondary school can memorize that nilai murni pertama: Kepercayaan kepada Tuhan: Keyakinan kewujudnya Tuhan and blak blak balk… all those this is not necessary again) I skip this subject. It’s just too bored until I don’t wish to recall a thing from it!

Subject 4, we learn about the pronunciation of Japanese word and simple term of Japanese word. We learn to speak Japanese in the certain situation like greeting, before eating and asking question. Just imagine that you are in kindergarten to learn your local language, is just the SAME!


Year 1 Trimester 3
1 Functional Biology
2 English for Science
3 Properties of Matter
4 Ancillary Statistics
5 Chemistry Laboratory II

Subject 1 talk about the fundamental elements, structures, and processes which enable organisms to live, reproduce, and adapt. (such as carbohydrate, protein, lipid, DNA, cell). In addition, this subject provided the ecological concepts included population dynamics, ecosystems, communities, environment cycles, biomass, evolution of organization. This subject provided some introduction to the subject of environment science and technology.

Subject 2 bring the idea on the reading skills, method to write letter and memo, apply APA style reference and citation, report writing, method to avoid plagiarism and graphical interpretation.. This study builds a foundation to write report which will be used during your thesis writing. Yeah, I totally regret that why I don’t really study hard in this subject because my writing skills is terrible. TERRIBLE!

Subject 3 consists of two parts that the first part explains the rate of reaction, factors that affect the rate of reaction and the order of reaction. The second part teach again the organics such as nomenclatures, alkenes, alkyl halides, alcohols, ether, amine, carboxylic acids and their derivatives, nitriles, epoxides and just similar to the syllabus in the secondary school and foundation but added with more details. This subject generally give fundamental knowledge for student to be ready with the coming subject, which is kinetics, mechanism and stereochemistry (Y3S1) and Properties of Organic Compounds (Y2S1).

Subject 4 is on the population, sample, standard deviation, variation, mean, medium for those grouped data and ungrouped data. We also learn on calculating probability, permutation, combination, binomial probability distribution, Poisson Probability Distribution, Normal distribution, population and sampling distribution, estimation (using t-distribution, confidential interval). It sound familiar with your mathematics class during your secondary school. In addition, we also learn on analysis of variance, (ANOVA), Regression and Correlation and Statistical quality control which are new for those SPM and Foundation student but I not not sure on those STPM student.
 *permutation  (remember 3! = 1x2x3=6? And also the formula of nPr = n!/ (n-r)!),
*combination (slightly similar to permutation but only the formula nCr = n!/ r!(n-r)!)

Subject 5 is the lab works and experiments that related to the chemistry subject and we need to write report. Nightmare coming soon for the following trimester because the chemistry related subject keeping increasing. For example if we have 3 subject in that trimester,  meaning that we need to write at least 2 report per week. If you can hold on this until Year 3, the nightmare will leave us. Less reports per week but we have our final year project which is another nightmare come ahead. So… enjoy the nightmare. :DD

错过

第一次知道你的存在,是从室友的朋友圈里得知。
那甜美的笑容还有会笑的眼睛,让你如此地出众。

我不曾尝试接近你,自身的信心还还不够。
虽然你的出现让我销魂,但你的美却让我怯步。


相遇。

第一次见面,是在朋友的家里讨论功课的时候,
你和我单独坐在朋友房间外的厅子里,
我没有机会去制造话题,脑袋一片空白,
室友见状:“你们怎么不说话?”
你俏皮带有一点不满地说:“他也没有说话。”


接触。

第二次接触的时候,是第一年第三个学期的星期四,
我坐在你的前方的位置上,你走了过来,手里拿着一叠厚重的笔记,
一脸犹豫的样子走了过来向我请教个问题,
我什么咖?当然解答不了,但是还是设法帮助到你。

你听了解答后,抿起嘴唇锁了眉一脸疑惑地向我们道谢,
留下了自己的笔记在我的桌上,临走前,我还问了你一句:是你的吗?
你已经被下周的考试冲晕了头:不不不,是你的,谢谢你啊。

下课了,你捧着那笔记,还在思考着那问题,看来我朋友给你的解答还不够清楚。
看到你的背影,我也帮不到你什么,那时自己还不是很了解这科目。

我背着书包,赶下一场课。。。

上课到一半,电话的震动声把我吓醒,生物课真的不是我的那一杯茶。
是一个未知的号码传来的简讯,打开一看,是你传来的!
原来你发现你的笔记不见了,从我室友拿到了我的号码。

我拔了通电话给你,约了个地方把笔记还了给你,
电话那头的你,传来焦急的声音,心里揪了一下,脚步马上急了起来。
我那份笔记还给你后,我看着你独自的离去,
现在才想起当初为什么不送你回家,顺便攀谈几句,再约个出来吃个饭?


机会。

分考卷了,
我的考卷上评分处离满分几个号码,
多得你的问题让我联想到问题的解答。

你则扁着嘴,皱着眉,我已经猜到了你的成绩。
安慰了你几句,你得知我的成绩是应为多亏了你。
马上叫我请客,当时考虑很很多,没有答应。。
后来才发现这是个好机会。。。。


转变。

从朋友得知你不再单身,心揪了一下。
说是“一下”但是那一下有多重?
早已接受这事实,每次都拿你们来开玩笑,小人罪该万死。
你们能够在一起,就要给我好好的走下去。。


朋友问我:你可以不要烦吗?每天都提到她。你更本就没有采取行动过!
我笑而不答,心里默默的说:你不懂。有些东西错过了,还能再来吗?


当时的自己还不够醒目,还不懂如何把握机会。结果机会流失了。。。。
遗憾放在心里,谁知道?

但是失去过,我知道怎么做了,了解了。
下一次,我会珍惜机会,甚至制造机会了。
每一段留下的教训,会好好放在心头里。
这一切,都是为了下一个“你”。

承认自己的错,才能成长。加油了。


时间久了,才发现到原来我所迷恋的,是你的外貌。
当你的外貌改变了,我还会爱你吗?

Chemistry Course Structure (Intro)

This post is basically introduce to those who interested in Chemistry but have slightly confusion in distinguishing between Chemical Engineering and Chemistry. Here is the course structure of Bachelor of Degree in Chemistry study in UTAR (different intake will have different arrangement.).
To have further information on the chemistry course structure or other science course structure, click on here.
So the course structure below is based on chemistry May intake.




This is the course structure of chemistry course in UTAR. However, we have flexible course structure that we can take Y3S3 subject during Y3S2 if that particular subject is offering. If we failed a subject and we must retake that subject instead of resit for that paper. However, not all trimester have the offer of that subject and if unfortunately you really failed one of it, you might need to wait for about 1 year to retake the subject (Some Y2, Y3 subjects only offer once in a year.)
So work hard especially for those subject that only offer once in a year.
Next, I will continues on the introduction on the subject in year 1 study.

怎样用小刀切西瓜?

在fb看到一段短片,教我们怎样用小刀切西瓜,
看完过后我不以为然,现在连那短片都找不到了,
然后隔了几天后看见朋友真的运用他的方法切西瓜,
突然觉得好神奇,我也想试一试。

和我表哥向水果店借了半粒西瓜,然后就照着他的方法切,
表哥也被这一种新奇的切法吸引到。

首先把一粒西瓜对半切开,
然后在西瓜切口表面向左约45度切到西瓜的底部,(纵面图里的红线)
之后再同一条切痕向右切下约45度至西瓜的底部,(纵面图里的橙线)
接着在割开围着西瓜红肉和白肉,(纵面图和横面图图里的黑线)
在横面图里只会看到一条条的线,
因为你在同一条切痕向左和向右45度切开。
对立着横线(横面图里的橙线)切下perpendicular的直线(横面图里的红线)
西瓜就会变得一块块的。


 写完过后就可以享受西瓜了。


大热天里,谢谢我表哥捐赠的西瓜。
得空的朋友,去试试看吧~
