CHE-1200 - General Chemistry I* (S) (3)

Prerequisite: Take CHE-1050  , CHE-1050L   (Score 20 or above on California Chemistry Diagnostic Test and waive CHE-1050  , CHE-1050L  ) RDG-0800  ; or one of the following: IRW-0900A IRW-0900B  , or IRW-0900C  , or reading placement; and MTH-1115  or MTH-1120  or MTH-1150   or appropriate math placement.
Students learn fundamental principles of chemistry based on a study of the physical and chemical properties of the metallic and nonmetallic elements. Topics include the structure of matter, symbols, formulas and equations, chemical bonding, gaseous state and the kinetic molecular theory, solutions, oxidation reduction, the periodic table, and thermochemistry.  Credit for this course may be earned through Advanced Placement Examination.  This course satisfies the General Education Physical Science requirement.

List Course Outcomes (consistent for all sections)
CO1 -Describe the nature of the science of chemistry

CO2 - Describe the link between the macroscopic and atomic world

CO3 - Describe the current model of atomic structure and state the evidence to support that model

CO4 - Describe how chemical compounds form and describe the nature of chemical bonds

CO5 - Solve problems involving the matter and energy changes accompanying chemical reaction

CO6 - Understand why significant figures are important in the study of chemical processes

CO7 - Describe how intermolecular forces are responsible for the properties of chemical substances

CO8 - Use the periodic table to explain trends in the properties of the elements and their compounds
