Harris, W.H. Freeman and Company, New York, 2007 Course Description CHEM 201 is a sophomore level course which introduces students to principles and techniques in proper quantitative chemical analysis. The formal prerequisite is a full year of General Chemistry (CHEM 101- 103 or equivalent from another university with a grade of C or better). It is assumed that students have a solid grasp of college level math including algebra. Course Objectives The main objective of CHEM 201 is to develop students understanding of the principles of analytical chemistry. More detailed objectives include: To learn both classical and modern instrumental aspects of analytical chemistry To learn the analytical process as applied to basic laboratory research To become familiar and later master the elements of good laboratory practice To ultimately apply his/her knowledge of analytical chemistry in an independent manner Lab Handouts Detailed handouts of each of the seven laboratories and safety requirements will be available on the Chemistry Departments website (http://www.calstatela.edu/dept/chem) under the Class Notes tab. Lecture presentation style Most lectures will be presented using PowerPoint format. PowerPoint lectures will be posted on the CHEM 201 Syllabus Fall 2011 2 Chemistry Departments class notes website only after a chapter has been completed. Lecture notes will not be posted prior to beginning a chapter or section.
