CHEM 1211K - Principles of Chemistry I with Laboratory

(4) Credit Hours
Prerequisite: (HSGPA >= 3.4 or ACT MATH >=20 or SAT MATH >=470 or ACCM >=67 or ACCNGM>=266 AND MATH 1111  with a C or higher or concurrently) OR
(MATH 1111 * with a C or higher) AND (ACT ENGL >=17 or SAT CR READ >= 430 or (ACCR >= 61 AND  ACCW >= 4) or (ACCNGR >=237 and ACCW>=4) OR ENGL 1101 /1101* with a C or higher.)
This course introduces the student to chemical concepts, laboratory skills and problem-solving strategies that are fundamental for further studies in 21st century science and that also increase science literacy. Topics covered include composition of matter, stoichiometry, periodic relationships of chemical elements and nomenclature. In the laboratory, students apply the scientific method using standard techniques and technology to perform qualitative and quantitative analyses of real-world problems. Upon completion of the course, the student will: 1) apply the language and symbology of chemistry, which includes units of measurement; 2) use the essential principles of atomic and molecular structure, properties, reactivity and energetics to describe chemical, biochemical, and/or environmental systems; 3) characterize and categorize different types of chemical reactions; 4) distinguish different states of matter, properties of matter and bonding theories of matter and explain the behavior of chemical and biochemical systems; 5) demonstrate understanding of general lab concepts such as unit measurement and evidence of chemical reactivity and (6) apply constructed lecture and laboratory knowledge to an on-going, campus-wide experimental research project.
