This is an introductory chemistry course for students who either have a limited background or no background in chemistry.

Topics covered in this course include but are not limited to units of measurement, matter, atoms, the periodic table, nomenclature, equations, oxidation-reduction reactions, solutions, calculations and problem solving.

This is an excellent course for students who would like to strengthen their chemistry foundation in preparation for CHEM A103 or CHEM A105.

It is very important to have a solid math foundation before a course in chemistry is attempted.  Consequently, the prerequisite for this course is MATH A055 with a minimum grade of C.  This prerequisite is strictly enforced.
