4 cr.


One unit of secondary school chemistry.

Course Description

This is the first course of a two-semester sequence intended for science and engineering majors and students who wish a more in-depth study of chemical principles than is provided in CHEM 101.

The following topics are studied: physical measurements and chemistry data handling; states of matter and its properties; stoichiometry and reactions in aqueous solution; chemical reactions and energy relationships; atomic structure and periodic trends; and theories of chemical bonding and molecular structures. The laboratory experiments complement the topics covered in lecture and enable students to acquire basic chemistry laboratory skills.


Three class hours, three-hour lab. 

This course is a prerequisite.




Laboratory fee $100.
