CHE-1050 - Introductory Chemistry* (S) (3)
Prerequisite: RDG 0800 and MTH 0970
This course provides an introduction to the fundamental principles of chemistry for students with little or no prior background in chemistry who require additional preparation for general chemistry (CHE 1200), or students who plan to take Principles of Organic and Biological Chemistry (CHE 1230). Topics are both descriptive and quantitative and include atomic structure, chemical structure and bonding, stoichiometry, states of matter, solution chemistry, acids and bases, and calculations using dimensional analysis. This course may transfer as a non-lab general science requirement for non-science majors. Successful completion of this course fulfills the chemistry prerequisites for Principles of Organic and Biological Chemistry (CHE 1230) and Biological Chemistry (CHE 1200). Credit will not be given for both CHE 1050 Introduction to Chemistry and CHE 1200 General Chemistry I. This course satisfies the General Education Physical Science requirement.
To enroll directly into CHE-1200/CHE-1200L, it is recommended to take the California Diagnostic Chemistry Test prior to registration.
