CHEM 101
General Chemistry I, part 1

In this introduction to chemistry, a conceptual understanding will be emphasized to show how chemistry can apply to health-related situations. The goal is to familiarize students with chemistry concepts and to provide the skills necessary to carry out lab work using these skills. Problem-solving will also be stressed. General Chemistry I will be taught at a chemistry-major level, and will provide the background for organic chemistry, biochemistry, and other health sciences where chemistry is utilized.

This is the first part of a two-part course. Registration is required separately for each part of the course.
