COURSE OBJECTIVES The central focus of this course is to develop quantitative problem solving skills. You will: Learn to clearly pose a problem with detailed solutions for all aspects of that problem. These can include central and auxiliary equations with any needed conversion factors. Learn to report precision input data in solutions to problems (contains the appropriate number of significant figures). Use these skills to master the following fundamental chemistry topics: the atomic nature of matter stoichiometry major classes of inorganic chemical reactions gases chemical equilibrium acids and bases applications of aqueous equilibria Conduct laboratory exercises that: emphasize and apply the concepts learned in lectures. develop laboratory, data analysis, and scientific writing skills.
