Course Overview Chemistry 101 Introductory Chemistry I will introduce the basic concepts and principles of chemistry and their applications in chemistry and closely-related fields. You will gain an understanding of chemical reactions through atomic and molecular structure. This is a university level course, treating the material in sufficient depth so that students can solve chemical problems and can understand the principles involved in their solution. Lecture : 10:00–10:50 AM MWF (Williams 723) Course Requirements : It is assumed that you have a working understanding of the concepts covered in high school science and math classes.

Course Coverage Part I Introduction & Chemical Foundations – Chapters 1-4 ~12 Lectures, 1 Review Session & 2 In-class Problem Sessions Introductory concepts, Dimensional analysis, Isotopes, Atomic & Molecular Weights, Empirical & Molecular Formulas, Chemical reactions, Limiting reagents, Percentage yield, Chemical reactions & calculations involving aqueous solutions, Balancing oxidation-reduction (redox) reactions. We will cover Chapters 1-5, 7-10 of the textbook. You are responsible for all of the material covered in the chapters as well as the problems both within and at the end of the chapter. The purpose of the lectures is to clarify the more difficult material in the book and not all topics will be covered in great detail in the lecture period. This will require you to learn from the book through reading and self-study. A proposed course schedule follows.
