CHM-1010 General Chemistry I
CHM-1010 is the first semester of a university-parallel first-year chemistry sequence. This course is fully transferable to most four-year colleges and universities. Topics include the structure of matter; elements and compounds; chemical reactions and stoichiometry; basic thermodynamics; modern atomic and molecular structure; chemical bonding, physical states of matter; and properties of solutions. Four (4) credit hours; seven (7) contact hours, including 3 hours of lecture, 3 hours of laboratory, and 1 hour of recitation per week.
Prerequisite(s): MAT-1350 with grade of C or higher, and EGL-1010 completed or concurrent. For Allied Health and Nursing majors MAT-1250 .
Corequisite(s): EGL-1010 completed or concurrent.
3 class/3 lab/1 rec hours.
- Perform measurements with appropriate precision and accuracy.
- Evaluate scientific observations using proper terminology and formatting, and in adherence to ethical standards.
- Analyze the energetics associated with physical and chemical processes.
- Apply the correct chemical symbolism, nomenclature, and formulation to chemical species.
- Apply the rules governing the properties and behavior of matter in its different states.
