CHEM& 121 - Introduction to Chemistry

6 CR

Introduces simplified atomic and molecular theory. Students investigate the chemistry of solutions, gases, liquids, and solids and examine quantitative relationships in chemical processes. Format includes lecture, discussion, and laboratory.

Prerequisite(s): MATH 078  or MATH 098 , with a C or better, or placement into MATH 099  or higher.

Course Outcomes

  • Define chemistry as a scientific study of matter and its impact on society and everyday life.
  • Apply precision, accuracy, and safe lab practices in taking measurements in support of scientific observation.
  • Develop problem-solving skills related to unit conversions and stoichiometric quantification of chemical reactions.
  • Identify the relationship between the position of an element on the periodic table and its atomic structure and physical/chemical properties.
  • Describe the structure and properties of matter based on ionic/covalent bonding and intermolecular forces.
  • Explain the concept of dynamic equilibrium in order to describe reversible physical and chemical processes reactions.
