Intensive General Chemistry with Quantitative Analysis Lab 1

CAS CH 111

  • Scientific Inquiry I
  • Quantitative Reasoning I
  • Critical Thinking
  • Teamwork/Collaboration

First semester of an intensive sequence for well-prepared students concentrating in chemistry or other sciences. Students in CH111 have typically completed more than one year of high school chemistry and are expected to apply their high school chemistry knowledge. Additionally, they need a strong foundation in algebra and basic concepts from introductory calculus and physics. Topics include: quantum theory and atomic structure; theories of molecular bonding and interaction; and thermodynamics. The complementary laboratory experience emphasizes quantitative analysis, training in scientific communication, and brief review of stoichiometry and reactions. Three hours lecture, discussion, lab lecture, and four hours lab. Effective Fall 2018, this course fulfills a single unit in each of the following BU Hub areas: Scientific Inquiry I, Quantitative Reasoning I, Critical Thinking, Teamwork/Collaboration.
