SESSION I (May 23 - July 5) 

CHE 131: General Chemistry I 
 (4 credits, MWF 9:30 -12:35am + 80 min workshop; Exam dates: 6/3, 6/10, 6/17, 6/24 at 11:00am-12:30pm. Online final exam 7/5 @ 10:00am to 12:30pm) - enrollment requires completion of OCPP assessment by May 19th!  CHE 131 SI Course Syllabus

Offered synchronous online lecture with in-person workshops. This is the initial course in the four-semester General-Chemistry/Organic-Chemistry sequence CHE 131/132/321/322. This sequence provides the necessary foundation for students who wish to pursue further coursework in Chemistry. The General Chemistry courses provide a broad introduction to the fundamental principles of chemistry, including substantial illustrative material drawn from the chemistry of inorganic, organic, and biochemical systems. The emphasis is on basic concepts, problem-solving, and factual material. The principal topics covered are stoichiometry, the states of matter, chemical equilibrium and introductory thermodynamics, electrochemistry, chemical kinetics, electron structure and chemical bonding, and chemical periodicity. Students will be placed into CHE 131 based on their performance in an Online Chemistry Placement and Preparation (OCPP) process. The four-semester sequence is inappropriate for students who have completed an AP course in chemistry and received a score of 4 or 5; these students are placed into CHE 152.
