An example of an acceptablecalculator is the Texas Instruments TI-30XA.2)Text: Chemistry: A Molecular Approach by Nivaldo Tro3)i>clicker (i>clicker or i>clicker2)4)Recommended:ACS Study guide. Preparing for Your ACS Examination in GeneralChemistry. The Official Guide.Check iCollege page and your GSU email Every Day!Learning outcomes:The goals of this course are set forth by the chemistry department.1)The student should demonstrate a general knowledge of the chemical concepts covered.2)The student should demonstrate the ability to successfully apply math skills previouslylearned to chemical systems.3)The student should demonstrate the ability to apply chemical principles to problems inphysics, biology and medicine.Learning objectives:1) Matter and Measurements2) Atoms and Elements3) Molecules, Compounds, Chemical Equations, and Chemical Quantities4) Aqueous Reactions, Solutions, Types of Electrolytes and Concentrations of Solutions5) Gases, Ideal Gas Laws, Kinetic Molecular Theory6) Thermochemistry7) The Quantum-Mechanical Model of Atom8) Periodic Properties of the Elements9) Chemical Bonding and the Lewis Model10) VSEPRand Molecular Orbital TheoryAttendance and Preparation Policy:Students are expected to attend all class meetings.However,attendance in class isnotrecorded (with some few exceptions). Students areresponsible for class preparation and for any material presented in the course of the lectureswhether or not it is contained in the textbook. Chemistry is ahighlystructured course, with eachnew topic based on others previously developed. Thus it iscriticalfor students to keepconsistentlyup-to-date in their readings and assignments. To fall even one class period behind isto risk considerable difficulty in mastery of future material. Therefore students should:1)Review previous material, especially if it was not perfectly understood2)
