General Chemistry I
Through lecture and lab experience, students will be exposed to and will demonstrate an understanding of basic concepts in chemistry such as nomenclature, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, the periodic table, the electronic structure, bonding, and the gas laws.
For successful completion of this course, it is recommend students have 2 years of high school algebra or any 100 level math course.
Labs fall into three categories: at-home labs, laboratory kits and virtual labs. At-home labs use commonly found household items or things that can easily be purchased and come with a set of instructions on how to complete the lab. Laboratory kits are very similar to at home-labs – items and directions required to complete the lab are sent directly to you via the purchase of a lab kit. Virtual labs use in-house designed simulations which walk you through any experiment and will ask you lab-related questions. All labs may require a video of you performing the lab and/or a completed lab report.
