Credit, Degree Applicable
Introductory chemistry. Nomenclature, stoichiometry, gases acids/bases, solution, solids, atomic/molecular structure.
C-ID CHEM 101
Students may enroll in this course to remove a high school deficiency in chemistry. Designed to prepare the beginning student as well as to strengthen the re-entry student for CHEM 101A
or 103A. Students who plan to enroll in CHEM 101A
or 103A are advised to take MATH 60
After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Outcome 1: Apply a variety of appropriate problem-solving tools, including algebraic manipulation of mathematical formulas, dimensional analysis, use of mole relationships, and graphing of chemically relevant quantities, to the solution of chemical problems.
- Outcome 2: Apply fundamental chemical models relating to atomic theory, chemical bonding, periodic properties of the elements, solution properties, and gas properties to the analysis and description of chemical systems.
- Outcome 3: Communicate scientific concepts and data, including the use of standard chemical nomenclature, terminology, and symbolism.
- Outcome 4: Apply standard laboratory methods to the handling and disposing of chemicals, use of instruments, analysis of data, and documentation of procedures and results.
