COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course is primarily intended for students who have not taken high school chemistry or who have received a grade of less than 80% on the Chemistry Regents Examination but are interested in being a Forensic Science or Fire Science major, or are interested in developing a strong knowledge base of general chemistry principles. The course provides students with a better understanding of the chemical world around us and is a prerequisite for more advanced chemistry courses. CHE 101 is the first semester of the two semester CHE 101-102 sequence, which is equivalent in content to CHE 103 but done at a slower pace with emphasis on developing needed skills. Topics include: a review of basic mathematical tools used in chemistry, the structure of the atom, stoichiometric calculations, aqueous solutions, gases, and an introduction to the periodic table of elements.

Prerequisite: Open to students who have not had high school chemistry, or who received a grade of C or lower in high school chemistry, or who received a grade of less than 80% on the Chemistry Regents. Co-requisite: MAT 104 or MAT 105.
Restrictions: . CHE 101 does not satisfy a science course requirement without CHE 102.
