Course Objectives: 
The aim of this course is to teach fundamental chemical principles.
Course Content: 

At the completion of General Chemistry, the students are expected to develop the basic knowledge and comprehension of the core concepts of general chemistry. The students will have developed a set of fundamental skills that can be applied to various chemical situations.  Students that complete this course will be competent problem-solvers. They will be able to identify the essential parts of a problem and formulate a strategy for solving the chemical problem. They will be able to estimate the solution to a problem, apply appropriate techniques to arrive at a solution, test the correctness of their solution, interpret their results and connect the solution to related areas science.
