CHE-1050 - Introductory Chemistry* (S) (3)
Prerequisite: Take RDG 0800; and MTH 0994 or MTH-0970 or appropriate math placement test scores.
CHE-1050 does not apply to science majors. 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). 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.
