CHEM 207 - General Chemistry I
(3 cr) CHEM 207 and its companion lab, CHEM 207L, are the first part of a two-semester sequence that serves as an introduction to modern chemistry for students majoring in the sciences. The course provides a basis for, and is a prerequisite for, advanced courses in chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology. Science majors, premedical and other pre-professional students should take this course. The topics covered include measurements and units, atomic and molecular structure, periodic properties of the elements, chemical bonding, stoichiometry, chemical reactivity, thermochemistry, and the structure and properties of gases, liquids and solids. This course, along with CHEM 207L , CHEM 209 , and CHEM 209L , fulfills the Core Curriculum Laboratory Sciences requirement. Prerequisites: Background in high school chemistry or CHEM 105 or permission of instructor. Prerequisite/corequisite: MATH 105 , MATH 108 , MATH 205 , MATH 207 , or appropriate placement score, or permission of instructor. Corequisite: It is recommended, but not required, that CHEM 207L be taken concurrently.
