CHM 1030: Chemistry I

Description

CHM 1030 overviews chemistry, relying on the introduction of core chemical concepts to help the student acquire a long-term, meaningful understanding of the basic principles and relevant connections to those principles operating in everyday life. Explores basic principles and concepts of chemistry in order to see the connections between chemistry and the environment, consumer goods, and chemistry's impact on the world. 

Objectives

1.       Illustrate the evolution of chemistry.

2.       Explain the modern practice of chemistry.

3.       Recognize and discuss the importance of chemistry.

4.       Assess and utilize various scientific measurements.

5.       Utilize and apply the metric system of measurement.

6.       Distinguish between matter and energy.

CHM 1030: General Chemistry I

Description

Introduction of core chemical concepts to help the student acquire a long-term, meaningful understanding of the basic principles and relevant connections to those principles operating in everyday life. Together with its accompanying residential lab course (Chemistry Lab; CHM 4900), these courses are designed to be transferable to residential college degree programs.

Objectives

  1. Describe the states of matter, their properties, and the effect of chemical measurements on chemical calculations.
  2. Analyze Dalton's atomic theory with respect to the structure of the atom.
  3. Solve chemical problems relating to various aspects of stoichiometry, such as the mole, molecular formulas, and chemical equations.
  4. Summarize the applications of various gas laws and the kinetic molecular theory.
  5. Summarize factors affecting solubility and the colligative properties of liquids.
  6. Discuss the various types of chemical reactions.
  7. Describe the organization of the periodic table with respect to atomic properties.
  8. Compare and contrast the properties of the main group elements.
  9. Relate the properties of the transition elements to the formation of coordination compounds.
  10. Analyze the various theories of chemical bonding.
  11. Discuss reaction mechanisms and the factors affecting the rate of a reaction.
  12. Discuss the various properties of acids and bases in water and the pH scale.
