General Chemistry with Laboratory A is the first course in a three-part, year-long general chemistry sequence.
Chemistry is the foundation for everything around us and relates to everything we do. These courses provide the fundamental principles of general chemistry. They also provide the  prerequisites for advanced chemistry, environmental sciences , health sciences, and medical offerings. These courses also provide a basic laboratory science for students seeking a well rounded liberal arts education.


General Chemistry with Laboratory A (8 credits)

This is the first course in a year-long general chemistry sequence, offered during daytime hours. Topics covered in fall quarter include unit conversions, stoichiometry, types of reactions, electron structures, and chemical bonding and will include related laboratory experiments.

Students successfully completing General Chemistry A can take General Chemistry II and III during the evenings in winter and spring quarters.


Winter and Spring Offerings

General Chemistry II (6 credits; winter)

General Chemistry II builds upon material covered in General Chemistry A or I. Topics covered in  winter quarter include a continuation of electron structures, chemical bonding, thermodynamics, and electrochemistry. Lab work will complement in-class learning.


General Chemistry with Laboratory III (6 credits; spring)

General Chemistry III will cover chemical kinetics, chemical equilibria, acid-base equilibria, pH, and other related topics. Topics covered in  spring quarter include a lab section that will complement the course work.

This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in:

Science; Environment; Medicine
