    CHEM 11A: General Chemistry I

    Instructor: Rebecca Meeks
    Prerequisites: None
    Course Description: <b>This course will be a traditional on-campus course in Summer 2022</b><br> Chemistry 11A covers a wide array of topics, embracing aspects of descriptive and quantitative chemistry. No prior study of chemistry is assumed, as the course begins by looking at the atomic foundation of matter, the elements, and the organization of the periodic table, working its way up to an examination of how atoms are bonded together to form larger units of matter. Students who complete this course will have an understanding of the three major phases of matter—solids, liquids, and gases—and how they behave, as well as, knowledge of the major types of chemical reactions and how to represent them. A strong focus is put on learning methods of creative problem-solving—using the material as a way to develop creative approaches to solving unfamiliar problems—a skill that carries students far beyond the confines of the classroom.Success in this four-credit course is based on the assumption that students will spend a minimum of 20 hours of study time per week in preparation for class (readings, problem sets).
