General Chemistry I


Summer 2013 quarter

Rebecca Sunderman physical and inorganic chemistry
Fields of Study
Preparatory for studies or careers in
organic chemistry, biology, geology, environmental science, physics, engineering, and health-related fields
competency in Algebra I

We will begin the study of general chemistry by exploring the structure of the atom and the nature of the chemical bond and then proceed towards an understanding of molecular geometry. This will lead us to discussions of the periodic table, chemical reactions, stoichiometry, and properties of gases. Time permitting other topics such as thermochemistry and kinetics may be explored. Issues of chemistry and society will also be discussed and incooporated.

In the laboratory we will work to develop the skills needed to be successful in a chemistry lab. In particular we will focus on measurements, solutions, and possibly some spectroscopy.
