Chemistry

This is a course in introductory chemistry. The topics developed in the course are chemistry and matter, matter and energy in reactions, matter and its structure, matter and its phases, reaction processes, acids and bases. Problem solving is a major element in the study of chemistry. 

Emphasis is placed in the following areas: 

  • Determining Chemical Formulas 
  • Balancing Chemical Equations
  • Stoichiometry 
  • Chemical Thermodynamics 
  • Electron Structure 
  • Solution Concentrations 
  • Acid-Base reactions 
  • Oxidation-Reduction reactions

This course utilizes 25-30 hours of lab work. Laboratory work covers each major class topic with emphasis on: basic lab safety, techniques, materials and equipment; application of learned concepts to real world and laboratory applications; correct practices in measurement, documentation, record keeping, and correct style in writing the lab report.
