analytical chemistry

This two-quarter program provides the equivalent of a year-long study of general chemistry and is designed to prepare students for upper division work in chemistry, biology, and the environmental sciences. Activities will include asynchronous video lectures, synchronous problem-solving workshops via Zoom, and laboratory experiences conducted at home. Students should be comfortable with algebra, logarithms, and exponential functions.

Topics covered in the first quarter will include: stoichiometry, structure of the atom, periodic properties, bonding, thermochemistry, and gases. In the second quarter, we will cover  intermolecular forces, equilibrium, acids and bases, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, nuclear chemistry, and kinetics. Home l aboratory exercises will focus on developing good lab habits and skills while applying the principles learned in class to real-world problems.

To successfully complete this program, students should have access to a computer, internet for synchronous activities, and access to Canvas. Students should expect to participate in up to 5 hours of synchronous meetings per week using Zoom in Canvas. Students will have access to alternatives to synchronous participation if conditions require.

This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in:

chemistry, biology, environmental science
