CHEM-Chemistry

Lower Division Collegiate

CHEM104 (3 credits)
Introductory Chemistry

Designed for non-science majors. Introduces the essence of atoms and molecules, chemical bonds, chemical reactions, gases, acids, and bases. Prepares students for work in a laboratory that uses chemicals. Also helps students understand how cells and organisms function. Students must enroll in lecture, laboratory and recitation sections. All three sections are required for this 5-credit class. Prerequisite: MTH65 or MTH63 or designated placement score.
