CHEM 103 Spring 2010 Page 2 of 6 Course Description Chemistry 103 is a rigorous 5-unit course that demands approximately 20 hours of study per week in addition to lecture, recitation and laboratory attendance. Chemistry 103 is the third quarter of a three-quarter sequence that provides a foundation in the chemical sciences suitable for premedical, pre-pharmaceutical, engineering and science majors. Students are required to have received a grade of C- or better in the prerequisite Chemistry 102 course or its equivalent, covering approximately the material in Chapters 1 through 13 of the assigned text. Students are required to be concurrently enrolled in one lecture section, one lab section, and one recitation section. Electronically graded homework (EHW) will be assigned on a weekly basis, and these scores will be incorporated into your final grade.
