Courses

This course provides a working knowledge of the principles, measurements and calculations basic to chemistry. Topics include the scientific method, energy, atoms, periodic table, bonding, names and formulas, equations, stoichiometry, states of matter, solutions, acids and bases, oxidation and biochemistry. Prerequisite: Grade of C or better in MTH 135 or equivalent skills. A student will not receive credit toward graduation requirements for both CHM 150 and CHM 170. This course is designed for the non-science major.
