General Chemistry I is a one-semester course designed for science-related majors that emphasizes the fundamental principles of chemistry. Topics include measurement, physical and chemical processes, nomenclature, atomic structure, quantum theory, stoichiometry, molecular structure, bonding theory, physical properties of gases, thermochemistry, and properties of solutions. Upon completion of the course, students should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the fundamental chemical laws and concepts and will obtain prerequisite chemical knowledge needed for advancement to General Chemistry II. Additional lab hours required. Prerequisites: MTH 140 (or at least one and a half years of high school algebra) and CHM 101 with a minimum grade of "C" or one year of high school chemistry, and Reading Proficiency.
