Hrs. per wk: Lab. Hrs. per wk: Credit Hours: Basic laboratory experiments supporting theoretical principles presented in CHEM 1311; introduction of the scientific method, experimental design, data collection and analysis, and preparation of laboratory reports. This course provides an introduction into selected laboratory techniques and quantitative studies of the properties of chemical substances related to topics discussed in General Chemistry I (CHEM 1311). The purpose of this course is to provide the student with a general understanding of the principle techniques used in inorganic chemistry, and how these principles relate to the world around us. These principles will be taught principally through hands-on laboratory experiments. This course is designed as a companion to CHEM-1311 and is suitable for science majors and students pursuing related degrees. This course is math intensive (MI). Course Description (e-catalog): Prerequisites: Successful completion of CHEM-1311 with a grade "C" or higher or current enrollment in CHEM-1311.
