CHM 101: Fundamentals of Chemistry (P1 902L)
This is a laboratory course emphasizing the general principles and theories of chemistry, including fundamentals of inorganic chemistry, atomic structure, and states of matter, bonding, stoichiometry, acid-based concepts, periodicity, and solution chemistry. The laboratory exercises develop skills in critically observing chemical phenomena, describing findings in the laboratory setting, and utilizing electronic resources for obtaining and analyzing data.
Prerequisite: At least two years of high school algebra or equivalent placement (MAT 101 or higher) is recommended
CHM 103: General Chemistry I (P1 902L)
This course discusses general inorganic chemistry with emphasis on developing a chemical vocabulary and reasoning ability. Topics to be covered include atomic theory, bonding, energy relations, gas laws, solution systems, and oxidation-reduction.
Prerequisite: MAT 101
CHM 104: General Chemistry II
This course is a continuation of CHM 103. Topics to be covered include equilibria, thermodynamics, electro-chemistry, descriptive chemistry of selected elements, nuclear chemistry, semimicro qualitative analysis, and an introduction to organic chemistry.
Prerequisite: CHM 103
