General Chemistry I is offered in two formats. The first format includes both CHEM 1210 and 1211. Completion of both CHEM 1210 and 1211 is equivalent to one semester of General Chemistry I but presented over a two-quarter period. Both CHEM 1210 and 1211 must be successfully completed to transfer as a semester-length course. Students who need a one-year general chemistry course emphasizing more time to develop their math and chemistry skills should consider taking this course sequence. Topics included in the first portion are measurement, naming compounds, writing chemical equations, atomic structure, the essentials of bonding, and the periodic table. Students completing this course are able to complete their general chemistry in one academic year. NOTE: The co-requisite MATH 1310 can be taken concurrently or have previously been completed. The level of difficulty of General Chemistry I is quite high. It is strongly recommended that students complete a prior high school or beginning college-level chemistry course before undertaking this course.
