Building on the course material in CHE 121, the student will learn about and apply fundamental chemical concepts that will lay the groundwork for future study in the fields of chemistry, bio-chemistry, and related fields.


1.  Learn problem-solving techniques.

2.  Learn about fundamental concepts including:

a.     Gas laws

b.     Reaction kinetics

c.     Acid-base chemistry

d.     Thermochemistry

e.     Spectroscopy (interaction between light    and matter)

f.      Molecular structure (VSPER, hybridization)

g.     Chemical equilibrium

h.     Reduction-oxidation chemistry (including electrochemistry and oxidation states)

3.     Explore other chemical phenomena including biochemical processes of photo-synthesis and fermentation
