Fall.

CH111 General Chemistry. 4 hours (3 lecture/2 lab hours). An introduction to general chemistry and elementary physical chemistry, including atomic theory and structure, periodic table, reactions and properties of elements and compounds. Those lacking college preparation Chemistry need permission of instructor and division chair. Fall.

CH114 General Chemistry with Qualitative Analysis. 4 hours (3 lecture/2 lab hours). A continuation of the topics in CH111 with emphasis on reactions, equilibria of elements, compounds and solutions, including the techniques of qualitative analysis. Prerequisite: CH111 or permission of instructor and division chair. Spring.

CH202 Environmental Chemistry. 4 hours (3 lecture/2 lab hours). Introduction to the principles of chemistry and physics in the environment.
