CHEM 1560 Introduction to General Chemistry

Course description

A one-semester introduction to chemistry, both qualitative and quantitative. CHEM 1560 prepares students for CHEM 1570; CHEM 1560 is not recommended for premedical or preveterinary students. Students planning to take CHEM 2080 should be enrolled in CHEM 2070 rather than CHEM 1560.

Students may receive credit for only one course in the following group: CHEM 1560, CHEM 2070 and CHEM 2090. Course fee: nonrefundable $20 lab fee (covers cost of safety goggles, lab apron, and breakage).

Students should be aware that the course is fast-paced and condensed. It covers material in six weeks that is usually covered over 15 weeks during a regular academic semester.

This course is open to all registrants, including undergraduates and Summer College students.
