This one-quarter program provides the equivalent of a year-long study of general chemistry and is designed to prepare students for upper division work in chemistry, biology, and the environmental sciences. Activities will include asynchronous video lectures, synchronous problem-solving workshops via Zoom, and laboratory experiences conducted on campus. Students should be comfortable with algebra, logarithms, and exponential functions.

Topics covered  will include: stoichiometry, structure of the atom, periodic properties, bonding, thermochemistry, gases, intermolecular forces, equilibrium, acids and bases, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, nuclear chemistry, and kinetics. Laboratory exercises will focus on developing good lab habits and skills while applying the principles learned in class to real-world problems.

To successfully complete this program, students should have access to a computer, internet for synchronous activities, and access to Canvas. Students should expect to participate in up to 10 hours of synchronous meetings per week using Zoom, as well as 5 hours a week of laboratory on campus. Students will have access to alternatives to synchronous participation if conditions require.
