Course Overview

This course is designed for liberal arts students with little or no background in chemistry and who do not intend to major in any science. Basic topics include the scientific method, composition of matter, atomic structure, nuclear chemistry, bonding, chemical formulas and equations, and basic organic chemistry. Knowledge of basic math will be used to solve the most basic problems; for example, for simple unit conversions and stoichiometry of chemical reactions. A simultaneous laboratory course, CHE 105, should be registered for separately. Three one-hour lectures a week.
