Hybrid course/exam
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: explain fundamental concepts in chemistry that will form the foundation for future specialized study in the fields of biomedicine and health professions; students will be able to identify, analyze and interpret: the periodic table and its families; atoms and atomic structure; molecules and ions; chemical reactions; moles, molar mass and stoichiometry; gas laws; thermochemistry; introduction to chemical equilibria; acid-base concepts in aqueous solutions; oxidation-reduction processes and electrochemical cells; quantum theory; the chemical bond; molecular geometry; and intermolecular forces.

Instruction: 

Topics covered are:  the periodic table and its families; atoms and atomic structure; molecules and ions; chemical reactions; moles, molar mass and stoichiometry, gas laws; thermochemistry; introduction to chemical equilibria, acid-base concepts in aqueous solutions, oxidation-reduction processes and electrochemical cells; quantum theory; the chemical bond; molecular geometry; and intermolecular forces.

Credit recommendation: 

Version 1: In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 3 semester hours in Science or Biology (2/11). Version 2:  In the upper division baccalaureate degree category, 3 semester hours in Science or Biology (4/16 revalidation) (3/21 revalidation). NOTE: Chemistry (CHE 121) and Chemistry with Lab (CHE 123) are duplicative. Credit should only be awarded for successful completion of one of the courses, not both.
