CHM-1010 General Chemistry I

Credits 4
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.
Course Outcomes
  1. Perform measurements with appropriate precision and accuracy.
  2. Evaluate scientific observations using proper terminology and formatting, and in adherence to ethical standards.
  3. Analyze the energetics associated with physical and chemical processes.
  4. Apply the correct chemical symbolism, nomenclature, and formulation to chemical species.
  5. Apply the rules governing the properties and behavior of matter in its different states.
  6. Predict the chemical reactivity of atoms and compounds.
  7. Explain atomic properties, including periodic trends, on the basis of the structures of atoms.
  8. Explain the conditions and forces that govern chemical bonds, electron arrangements, molecular geometries, and intermolecular interactions.
  9. Solve stoichiometric problems and balance chemical equations.
