Pedagogical Approach & Learning Outcomes
The complete one-year course must include the following topics:
Molecular Structure and Bonding
States of Matter
Topics for second semester:
Acids & Bases
Floating Topics to 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
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
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 this course, each student should be able to employ standard laboratory techniques appropriate to the course content, such as titration.

This is a free textbook offered by Saylor Foundation. The overall goal of the authors with General Chemistry: Principles, Patterns, and Applications was to produce a text that introduces the students to the relevance and excitement of chemistry. Although much of first-year chemistry is taught as a service course, Bruce and Patricia feel there is no reason that the intrinsic excitement and potential of chemistry cannot be the focal point of the text and the course.

This book is about fundamental concepts that any chemistry student should not only be aware of but proficient at. This book deals with the states of matter, the mole, the shapes of molecules, the elements and their properties in the periodic table, the electronic structure of the elements and includes many numerical examples to apply the newly-learned concepts. Solutions to the exercises will be provided in the second volume of “Fundamental of Chemistry

Concept Development Studies in Chemistry 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.

Chemistry is designed for the two-semester general chemistry course. For many students, this course provides the foundation to a career in chemistry, while for others, this may be their only college-level science course. As such, this textbook provides an important opportunity for students to learn the core concepts of chemistry and understand how those concepts apply to their lives and the world around them. The text has been developed to meet the scope and sequence of most general chemistry courses. At the same time, the book includes a number of innovative features designed to enhance student learning. A strength of Chemistry is that instructors can customize the book, adapting it to the approach that works best in their classroom.

The modern human experience places a large emphasis upon the material world. From the day of our birth to the day we die, we are frequently preoccupied with the world around us. Whether struggling to feed ourselves, occupying ourselves with modern inventions, interacting with other people or animals, or simply meditating on the air we breathe, our attention is focused on different aspects of the material world. In fact only a handful of disciplines—certain subsets of religion, philosophy, and abstract math—can be considered completely unrelated to the material world. Everything else is somehow related to chemistry, the scientific discipline which studies the properties, composition, and transformation of matter.
