Temple University Introduction to Chemistry (Chemistry 1021) Department of Chemistry Fall Semester 2009 Dr. James Bloxton Office: 102 Beury Hall 166 Beury Hall E-mail: jdb84@temple.edu Tel: 1-215-204-7129 Keep this syllabus; it contains important information which you will need to know in order to succeed in this course. Chemistry 1021 is the first semester of Introduction to Chemistry lecture. This broad survey course in chemistry is designed primarily for non-science majors and those planning careers in allied health or horticulture. Introduction to Chemistry is a core curriculum course; however, it is not accepted by medical or dental schools, and cannot normally be used as a prerequisite for Chemistry 2201 (Organic Chemistry). If you expect to take Science and Technology courses in Chemistry (2000 level or above), you should take the 1031-1034 sequence (General Chemistry) rather than this course.
