Students should consult the appropriate Timetable, available from the Records Office for courses to be offered during the current term. A number of senior courses are offered on a rotation basis and are given in alternate years. Students are advised to consult with the Department in advance when planning their curriculum.
The purpose of this course is to prepare students for CHEM- 1111(3) Introduction to the Chemical Properties of Matter and CHEM-1112(3) Basic Principles of Chemical Reactivity. Topics include the characterization of chemical substances, chemical reactions, chemical quantities, and chemical systems. Standing in this course will satisfy the prerequisites for CHEM-1111(3) and CHEM-1112(3) (in place of Chemistry 40s, Pre-Calculus Mathematics 40S, and/or Applied Mathematics 40S). Non-science majors wishing to take a chemistry course for science credit should take CHEM-2801(3) Chemistry and Society. RESTRICTION: Students with standing in CHEM-1111(3), CHEM-1112(3), or the former CHEM-1101(6) cannot register for this course. This course CANNOT be used as a credit towards the Chemistry or Biochemistry majors.
This includes an introduction to atomic and molecular structure, chemical bonding, chemical reactivity, to the bulk properties of matter, and the descriptive chemistry of elements. The laboratory component introduces students to basic chemistry laboratory practice and techniques. The fundamental concepts of chemical reactivity covered in this course and CHEM- 1112(3) provide the essential foundation for students who wish to continue with Chemistry or Biochemistry as a major, and for students of Biology, Physics, Physical Geography, Environmental Studies, and Experimental Psychology. PREREQUISITES: Chemistry 40S and Pre-Calculus Mathematics 40S or Applied Mathematics 40S; or CHEM- 0100(3).
