CHM 101 - Introduction to Chemistry

Introduction to Chemistry is a one-semester introductory course designed to help students understand the basic concepts of chemistry and master the skills necessary to succeed in the General Chemistry sequence, CHM 109 -CHM 110 . This course is designed for students who did not study Chemistry in high school or are not prepared for General Chemistry. The course will provide an introduction to chemical principles. Topics may include measurement in chemistry, atomic structure, periodic table, bonding, nomenclature, balancing chemical equations, calculations using chemical equations, and acid/base chemistry. The course includes a writing and communications requirement that relates the topics covered to a broad historical and social context. This course counts toward a general college elective, not as a chemistry elective. Decision to take CHM 101  will be determined in consultation with the academic advisor. Two lecture hours and two hours of laboratory a week for one semester.
