Introduction to general chemistry for students who have majors requiring CHEM 1510 but who need a solid review of concepts. No prior study of chemistry is assumed. Topics include measurement, properties of matter, fundamental atomic theory, the mole, stoichiometry, and related calculations.
Requisites: MATH 1200 or concurrent or Math placement level 2 or higher and WARNING: not CHEM 1210 or 1510
Credit Hours: 4
Repeat/Retake Information: May be retaken two times excluding withdrawals, but only last course taken counts.
Lecture/Lab Hours: 3.0 lecture, 3.0 laboratory
Grades: Eligible Grades: A-F,WP,WF,WN,FN,AU,I
