General Chemistry I (CHEM 151) Fall 2008 Dr. John Pollard Old Chem 240 520 621 8843 jpollard@email.arizona.edu www.chem.arizona.edu/~jpollard Office hours- Thursday- 2-4 PM Lecture- M-W-F 1:00-1:50 AM KOFFL 204 Credits: 4 (3 hours lecture, 4 hours laboratory) Prerequisite: MATH 110 or an equivalent level of proficiency as demonstrated by the Math Readiness Test score. Course description Integrated lecture-lab course designed to develop a basic understanding of the central principles of chemistry that are useful to explain and predict the properties of chemical substances based on their atomic and molecular structure. Additionally, students will be introduced to modern laboratory techniques and participate in experimental activities that promote the development of basic and advanced science-process skills. The course is designed for students who require a strong foundation in general chemistry, such as science and engineering majors, and pre-medical and pre-pharmacy students. Recommended textbooks N.
