COURSE DESCRIPTION

 

Chemistry is a laboratory oriented course where students will learn new skills and techniques as they study first year chemistry.

They will be introduced to the shorthand of chemistry as they learn to use chemical formulas and equations. Chemical properties will be related to atomic structure as students learn to use the periodic table of elements.

Quantitative analysis, nuclear chemistry, and acid-base chemistry will also be introduced.
