This course is designed to provide students with a strong education in the area of chemistry. This course is designed to offer the student an excellent foundation in structure and behavior of matter, both its qualitative and quantitative nature. Emphasis will be placed on: 1) models, classification, and separation of matter; 2) The quantitative nature of chemical reactions including dimensional analysis, the mole concept, data collection, analysis, and synthesis in the application of problem solving techniques; 3) The Kinetic Molecular Theory of Gases; and 4) Thermo-chemistry
