Chemistry

CHM 1025   INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY

credits: 3  

Prerequisite: (ENC 0025 and REA 0017 and MAT 1033) or (EAP 1695 and MAT 1033) or (appropriate score on SPC placement test). Corequisite: CHM 1025L. This introductory course is a presentation of modern chemistry concepts, periodicity and atomic structure, states of matter, chemical formulas and nomenclature, chemical reactions, chemical calculations, and solutions. This course will prepare students for General Chemistry but is not designed for credit toward a major in chemistry and may not be taken for credit subsequent to receiving a grade of "C" or better in CHM 2045/2045L or CHM 2046/2046L. 47 contact hours.

CHM 1025L   INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY LAB

credits: 1  
Corequisite: CHM 1025. This introductory chemistry lab course includes experiments involving mass, volume, the nature of substances, density, solubility, graphing, dimensional analysis, empirical formulas, titration, gas laws, and solutions. 45 contact hours.

CHM 1026   CHEMICAL CALCULATIONS

credits: 3  

Prerequisites: CHM 1025 and 1025L. This course places further emphasis on the mastery of equation writing and of calculations involving: gas laws, formulas, weight and volume relationships, and standard solution. The concept of significant figures is included. This course is not designed for credit toward a major in chemistry and may not be taken for credit subsequent to receiving a grade of "C" or better in CHM 2045 or CHM 2046. 47 contact hours.

CHM 2045   GENERAL CHEMISTRY I
