This is an accelerated General Chemistry I course for students who have some knowledge of chemistry as indicated by assessment testing. Topics include naming, atomic structure, chemical reactions, essentials of bonding, periodic properties, VSEPR theory, modern bonding theories, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, and the chemistry of solids, liquids, and gases. NOTE: The co-requisite MATH 1420 can be taken concurrently or have previously been completed. The level of difficulty of General Chemistry is quite high. It is assumed that students taking this course have some chemistry background and strong math skills to work at the accelerated pace. The equivalent to the entire first semester of General Chemistry I is covered in this one-quarter course.
