CH 161H General Chemistry I Honors
CH 161H General Chemistry I Honors 3
Foundational course in chemistry. CHEM 161H differs from the regular CHEM 161 offering in its small class size, its emphasis on active, collaborative, and problem-based learning, and a more rigorous, process-oriented approach. The dominant theme of the course is the connection between the molecular-level attributes of matter (elemental composition, atomic structure and electronic configurations, bonding, molecular structure and intermolecular forces) and the observable physical and chemical properties of individual substances as applied in the real world. One year of high school chemistry recommended and math proficiency required. Fall semester.
