Courses at the 100-level

CHEM 103: General Chemistry I

Topics include atomic theory, periodicity, bonding, reactions, stoichiometry, gas laws, and thermochemistry. Laboratory experiments illustrate these concepts and develop laboratory techniques. Lecture and laboratory.
4 credit hours

CHEM 103H: Honors General Chemistry I

For students with a good background in science and mathematics. Topics are listed in and experiments are similar to CHEM 103, with increased emphasis on instrumentation and independent work. Lecture and laboratory.
4 credit hours

CHEM 104: General Chemistry II

Topics include states of matter, solutions, kinetics, acids and bases, equilibrium theory, thermodynamics, and electrochemistry. Lecture and laboratory.
4 credit hours

Prerequisites:
  • CHEM 103 or equivalent
CHEM 104H: Honors General Chemistry II
