CHEM 1000 - Introductory Chemistry

This course introduces chemical concepts that include the particulate nature of matter, gas laws, atomic theory, periodic trends, chemical bonding and intermolecular forces, stoichiometry, chemical reactions (precipitation, acid-base and reduction-oxidation), chemical equilibrium, nuclear chemistry and organic chemistry.

CHEM 1000 is intended primarily for those who have not had high school chemistry or who feel they need a review.

Credits: 4

Instructional Method Lecture and Lab

General Education Requirement: Physical Science
Comments: This course meets UW’s Physical and Natural World requirement.

Enrollment in MATH 0930 Intermediate Algebra, or placement into a higher level mathematics course.


Minimum Student Competencies
Upon completion of CHEM 1000 Introductory Chemistry, the student will:

  1. Predict chemical phenomena using particulate models, especially atomic and kinetic molecular theories.
  2. Explain chemical phenomena using particulate and symbolic representations.
  3. Predict the macroscopic and particulate properties of a substance that arise from the bonding present in that substance.
  4. Develop quantitative relationships for a substance using appropriate means, especially the mole concept, molar mass, Molarity, the Ideal Gas Law and density.
  5. Predict the reactivity of a substance by way of precipitation, acid-base or reduction-oxidation reactions.
  6. Communicate chemical concepts in written and oral form.
  7. Demonstrate appropriate chemical laboratory safety and skills, including the use of appropriate technologies to obtain, record, and analyze chemical information with appropriate precision and accuracy.
