Course Outcomes

Chemistry fundamentals

Students will demonstrate a familiarity with the basic vocabulary and concepts of chemistry.

Quantitative laws

Students will demonstrate a qualitative and basic quantitative understanding of the fundamental chemical laws which govern the material substances in our universe and which express how one variable in nature depends on another.

Problem solving

Students will demonstrate the ability to manipulate quantitative descriptors of natural phenomena expressed both in the form of equations and of proportionalities, and solve chemistry problems using these skills.

Chemical Phenomenon

A successful Chemistry 105 students describes chemical phenomenon by first focusing on properties of the elements at the atomic level. Chemistry 105 students will gain a knowledge base of reactivity patterns of elements and compounds.

Field of Study

Chemistry 105 students will be able to use their chemistry experience, knowledge, and skills to better understand and work in their own field of study.
