To provide you with an understanding of the basic chemical theory of atomic structure,
periodicity, stoichiometry, chemical reactivity, and thermochemistry.
Topics to be covered:
The topics to be covered in this course will include, but not be restricted to the
scientific method, measurement, classification of matter, atomic structure, the Periodic Table, molecules,
ions and their compounds, stoichiometry, solution chemistry, and energy and chemical reactions.
All exams, except the final, will be given during regularly scheduled class time.
Your grade will
be calculated on the basis of a percentage of total points.
There will be no curve and grades will be assigned
based on: 90% - 100% = A, 80% - 89% = B, 70% - 79% = C, 60% - 69% = NC, < 60% = F.
