- General Chemistry for Science Majors Sequence A
- 10 (at least 5, incl at least 1 lab for each sem.)
This is a one-year course sequence in chemistry intended for majors in the natural sciences (chemistry, biochemistry, biology, physics, pre-medicine), mathematics, and engineering.
- Sequence (S)
Intermediate Algebra; CHEM 110 is a prerequisite for the second semester of General Chemistry
The complete one-year course must include the following topics:
- Atomic Structure
- Quantum Theory
- Periodic Properties
- Chemical Reactions
- Gas Laws
- Molecular Structure and Bonding
- States of Matter
Topics for second semester:
- Acids & Bases
- Coordination Chemistry
- Descriptive Chemistry
Floating Topics to 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 this course, each student should be able to employ standard laboratory techniques appropriate to the course content, such as titration.
