This sequence of courses is offered fall (CHE310), winter (CHE320) and spring (CHE330). This course is designed to foster deductive reasoning, creativity and cooperative learning. Thereafter, the course continues to be laboratory based. Topics include atomic and molecular structure, states of matter, chemical and physical behavior of elements and compounds, solution chemistry, kinetics, equilibrium, thermochemistry, and electrochemistry. Mathematical modeling and computer software are used to extend the range of discussions. After completing this three-term sequence, students will be prepared to write the SAT II test in chemistry.
