Included are the meaning and use of the mole, atomic theory and structure, the periodic table, chemical nomenclature, bonding, chemical reactions and equations, stoichiometry and solution chemistry. These concepts are illustrated in the laboratory section of the course, in which experiments are done to observe the behavior or matter under controlled conditions. This course provides skills required for subsequent chemistry courses. Course/lab fees.
