Principles of Chemistry I

CHEM 1217 (3)

As the first of a two-semester sequence, this course teaches fundamental concepts in chemistry, including the electronic structure of atoms, chemical periodicity, nature of chemical bonds, molecular structure, the three phases of matter, etc. In addition, the application of these concepts to various chemical sub-disciplines, such as organic chemistry, biochemistry, and materials chemistry. Designed for majors in chemical sciences and engineering, it is assumed that the students are familiar with college algebra, chemical nomenclature, stoichiometry, and scientific measurements. Three lectures per week.

Credit for both this course and CHEM 1120C may not be applied toward a degree program.

Prerequisite: ALEKS 1 >30%

Pre- or corequisite: 1215L.
