Other topics may be covered at the discretion of the instructor. Assessment Level(s): ENGL 101 /ENGL 101A  , MATH 050  , READ 120 . Three hours each week. Formerly CH 099A.

3 semester hours

May not be taken concurrently with MATH 017  or MATH 020  or MATH 045  without appropriate Math assessment score.

 

THREE EQUIVALENT CREDIT HOURS. NOT APPLICABLE TO A DEGREE OR CERTIFICATE. MAY NOT BE USED TO SATISFY DEGREE REQUIREMENTS. NOT INCLUDED IN GPA CALCULATION.

Course Outcomes:
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:

  • Use dimensional analysis to perform calculations and express results of calculations with correct units and number of significant figures.

  • Identify the various states of matter and describe the common physical properties of each state.

  • Identify and distinguish physical and chemical properties and changes.

  • Describe the major components of the atom and write symbols for atoms, ions, and isotopes.

  • Determine nomenclature and formulas for ionic and covalent compounds.

  • Convert moles, masses, and numbers of particles.

  • Determine percent composition and understand and apply mole concept to determine empirical and molecular formulas.

  • Balance chemical reactions, classify reaction types, and determine products of reactions.

  • Use stoichiometry and balanced equations to determine amounts and masses of substances used up and produced in reactions as well as percent yields.

  • Determine solution concentrations and calculate the amounts of materials involved in solution reactions.

  • Analyze and solve problems that include a combination of concepts from various chapters.
