ACHM 111: General Chemistry
The goals of this course are to introduce the student to foundational chemical topics such as
1) qualitative understanding of chemical reactions
2) stoichiometry (chemical algebra) of molecules, reactions, and titrations
3) atomic and molecular structure and properties
4) atomic periodicity
5) properties of solids and liquids.
The principles covered in this course provide an introduction to the material covered in advanced chemistry courses. In addition, the material presented in this course represents basic chemical principles that span many scientific disciplines, which is why pre-med, pre-pharm, and biology students are required to take this class.
