The student will understand the concepts of inorganic and organic materials and the primary and secondary bonding and the effect of bonds on the main characteristics of materials. The student will understand the meaning of chemical reaction equations and their use for calculations. The student knows chemical formulas and can use them for calculating solvent concentrations and other basic chemical calculations. On completion of the course, the student knows the structure and characteristics of the organic materials (glues, varnishes, paints) used in conservation. On completion of the course, the student will understand how the chemical composition of polar and nonpolar solvents differ, and how they effect on materials/objects.
The course covers the basics of inorganic chemistry and its relation to materials used in conservation. Chemical bonds, equations, concentrations of solutions and related calculations. The course also covers the basics of organic chemistry, compositions and functional groups. Properties of solvents and their use in conservation.
The student has a lot of absences from the teaching sessions. Activity during the teaching sessions and learning assignments is unsatisfactory. The student should improve her/his group working abilities.
The capacity to formulate relevant problems associated with the work is limited and therefore the problem solving and ability to apply theoretical studies to a practical work need to be improved.
The student does not work independently and there is a lot of need for teacher’s further guidance. The student has not given a requisite amount of attention for the subject and the result of the course is unbalanced. The student needs to improve her/his skills and knowledge in many areas.
The student has taken part to all of the teaching sessions and learning assignments and the activity for the course is good. The student acts flexibly as a group member.
The studies proceed coherently. The student is able to understand the basic motifs of the course and is able to apply theoretical studies to a practical work. The reasoning of the rehearsal works is competent and the student understands causes and consequences of one's choice.
The student works independently but there is still need for teacher’s further guidance. The student has given a requisite amount of attention for the subject and the result of the course is balanced. The student has achieved a good level at her/his skills and knowledge
The course objectives have been achieved in a competent manner. Student has taken actively and constructively part to the teaching and learning assignments. Student’s function enhances group activities.
The student masters the motifs of the course and prerequisites and is able to apply theoretical studies to a practical work. The reasoning of the rehearsal works is professional and the student can validate causes and consequences of one's choice.
The student works independently enough. The student is able to master the whole of subject both in theory and practice. The student has achieved an excellent level at her/his skills and knowledge.
