Introduces basic chemical principles and computational problems found in General Chemistry with a concentration on developing both analytical and reasoning skills via problem solving. Prepares students wanting to take the CH 221-3 General Chemistry series that have no chemical background or have not taken a college or high school chemistry course in the last 3 years.
Equivalent placement test scores also and CH 151 Competency Exam also accepted.
Upon completion of the course students should be able to:
- Demonstrate an emerging ability to use effective written and/or oral communication through the application of preparatory chemical concepts and reasoning using the language of chemistry.
- Demonstrate an emerging understanding of how preparatory chemistry impacts the natural and technological environments.
- Demonstrate an emerging ability to use detailed data collection, analysis and collaborative skills in order to explore preparatory chemical principles, critically evaluate models and information, draw conclusions and communicate results.
- Demonstrate an emerging understanding of chemical principles and collaborative skills to effectively solve problems encountered in preparatory chemistry using appropriate computational and reasoning skills.
