An integrated study of general chemistry. Covers a range of topics including the atomic structure of matter; molecules; chemical reactions; acids and bases; gases; and equilibria in the gas and liquid phase. Students are expected to use algebra to solve problems. General Chemistry is articulated in a full-year series. Partial transfer credit is not allowed for the A,B,C series.


Prerequisite(s): Previous or concurrent enrollment in MATH 3 (or equivalent), or a mathematics placement score of 300 or higher; taking the online chemistry self-assessment exam is strongly recommended.
