CH 115 - Fundamentals of Chemistry with Lab


Credits: 4
An Introductory course for students with little to no background in chemistry. Fundamental chemical concepts such as atomic structure, bonding, chemical reactions, and the properties of solids, liquids, and gases are presented.  Emphasis is placed on learning the “language of chemistry,” achieving the ability to visualize and understand natural processes on an atomic and molecular level, and developing quantitative reasoning and problem solving skills. Laboratory exercises and experiments serve to illustrate concepts presented in the lecture, and reinforce the mathematical skills necessary to investigate chemical systems. This course is appropriate for students preparing to take   or 126-Principles of Chemistry and for students who seek a one-semester survey of the subject.
Prerequisites: (QR1 or MA 100 or placement at the FQR level or placement at the AQR level) and placement based on the online Chemistry diagnostic exam.
Note(s): May not be used to satisfy major or minor requirements in chemistry or biology. (Fulfills FQR, QR2 and natural sciences requirements.)
