Fundamentals of Chemistry


Basic principles of chemistry and its practice in the laboratory. Emphasis on the underlying structure of matter (atoms, ions, molecules) and how structure determines properties. Designed to teach chemistry terminology and symbols, as well as to develop analytical and critical thinking skills. Appropriate for non-science majors needing one term of chemistry or to satisfy a lab science requirement. Also appropriate for those who desire background before taking General Chemistry I (CHM111). No prior knowledge of chemistry is assumed, but some algebra skills are needed. 4 Credits (3 Lecture - 3 Lab) Prerequisite(s): Placement by Examination or MTH005.
