J. Tro, 2nd Ed., Pearson/Prentice Hall Lab Text: ACHM 111/112 Laboratory Manual, edited by Pariyadath, Ruszczyk, and Fetterolf, USCA, 2011 Lab Notebook: Laboratory Notebook with carbonless copies (available from the bookstore) Online Homework: You must have access to the Mastering Chemistry system to do the homework for this class. Access can be purchased at http://www.masteringchemistry.com. If you purchased your textbook new, the package should already include an access code to the system. Calculator: At least a scientific calculator capable of performing logarithms, exponents, and scientific notation Course Objectives: A student who successfully completes this course should have a grasp of the basic chemical concepts of stoichiometry (chemical accounting), atomic and molecular structure, periodic trends, simple chemical reactions, and the properties of matter. The principles taught in this course and the next (ACHM 112) form the foundation of the rest of the chemical sciences taught here at USCA. In addition, the concepts taught here are highly relevant to other discipline, including biology, geology, physics, and medicine. For this reason, we require this course for pre‐med, pre‐
