General Chemistry I with Lab
Summer 2014 quarter (Session I)
We will begin the study of general chemistry by exploring the structure of the atom and the nature of the chemical bond and then proceed towards an understanding of molecular geometry. This will lead us to discussions of the periodic table, chemical reactions, stoichiometry, and properties of gases. Issues of chemistry and society will also be discussed and incorporated. In the laboratory we will work to develop the skills needed to be successful in a chemistry lab. In particular we will focus on measurements, solutions, and possibly some spectroscopy. This is part one of a two course sequence, that together cover one year of general chemistry with lab.
