Pedagogical Approach & Learning Outcomes
The first semester of the complete one-year course must include:
Molecular Structure and Bonding
States of Matter
Floating Topics will be covered within the sequence.
It is strongly recommended that both semesters be completed at a single institution before transfer.
The laboratory sequence will support the above topics including both qualitative and quantitative experiments, analysis of data and error propagation.
The American Chemical Society (ACS) General Chemistry Guide and the General Chemistry examinations provide information on topics and indicate an appropriate level of this sequence of courses, including learning goals and objectives. At the conclusion of the course, each student should be able to employ standard laboratory techniques appropriate to the course content, such as titration.

The David Ball Introductory Chemistry open textbook is not intended to make you an expert. True expertise in any field is a years-long endeavor. This is a survey of some of the basic topics of chemistry. This survey should give one enough knowledge to appreciate the impact of chemistry in everyday life and, if necessary, prepare one for additional instruction in chemistry. Throughout each chapter, two features reinforce the theme of the textbook—that chemistry is all around you. The first is a feature titled, appropriately, Chemistry Is Everywhere. Chemistry Is Everywhere focuses on the personal hygiene products used every morning: toothpaste, soap, and shampoo, among others. The other feature focuses on chemistry that likely indulged in every day: eating and drinking.

Analytical chemistry is more than a collection of analytical methods and an understanding of equilibrium chemistry; it is an approach to solving chemical problems. Although equilibrium chemistry and analytical methods are important, their coverage should not come at the expense of other equally important topics. The introductory course in analytical chemistry is the ideal place in the undergraduate chemistry curriculum for exploring topics such as experimental design, sampling, calibration strategies, standardization, optimization, statistics, and the validation of experimental results. Analytical methods come and go, but best practices for designing and validating analytical methods are universal. Because chemistry is an experimental science it is essential that all chemistry students understand the importance of making good measurements.

The ChemWiki project is a new approach toward chemistry education where an Open Access textbook environment is constantly being written and re-written partly by students and partly by faculty members resulting in a free Chemistry textbook to supplement or supplant conventional paper-based books. Anyone can view, although a freely available account is required to edit the site modules.

is an online textbook for an Introductory General Chemistry course, written specifically for use with Socratic teaching or other active learning or interactive teaching styles. Each case study is a development of a major fundamental chemical concept, starting from experimental observations and following scientific reasoning to the development of a model. Each module develops a central concept in Chemistry from experimental observations and inductive reasoning.
