CHEM 101: Introduction to the Science of Chemistry

Prerequisite: Enrollment in CHEM 101 is determined by a placement test administered only in August.

Offered: Fall and Spring

Intended for students who have not had high school chemistry or have a weak chemistry background but desire to pursue a program that requires chemistry. May also be used to fulfill the physical science general education requirement. Introduction to the philosophy of science measurements, chemical shorthand, dimensional analysis, stoichiometry, the chemical equation and some foundation theories of science. The laboratory is intended to develop observational and interpretive skills. Three hours lecture and two hours lab.
