General Chemistry for Science Majors I, with Lab
- General Chemistry for Science Majors I, with Lab
- 5 units, including at least 1 unit of laboratory
This is the first semester of a one-year course in chemistry intended for majors in the natural sciences (chemistry, biochemistry, biology, physics, pre-medicine), mathematics, and engineering.
The first semester of the complete one-year course must include:
- Atomic Structure
- Quantum Theory
- Periodic Properties
- Chemical Reactions
- Gas Laws
- Molecular Structure and Bonding
- States of Matter
Floating Topics will be covered within the sequence.
- Nuclear Chemistry
- Organic Chemistry
It is strongly recommended that both semesters be completed at a single institution before transfer.
The laboratory sequence will support the above topics including both qualitative and quantitative experiments, analysis of data and error propagation.
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
The American Chemical Society (ACS) General Chemistry Guide and the General Chemistry examinations provide information on topics and indicate an appropriate level of this sequence of courses, including learning goals and objectives. At the conclusion of the course, each student should be able to employ standard laboratory techniques appropriate to the course content, such as titration.
