Prerequisite: MAT - 063 Elementary Algebra  or equivalent.
First semester of a two-semester sequence intended for nonscience majors. Introduction to the basic concepts and facts of chemistry. Topics include the metric system of measurement, atomic theory of matter, energy levels and atomic structure, the periodic table, ionic and molecular compounds, ionic bonding, covalent bonding and molecular structure, classification of chemical reactions, and reaction equations and chemical calculations. This course treats these topics in more depth than introductory Chemistry; however, high school chemistry is NOT a prerequisite. Laboratory work is an important part of this course.
