Textbook and supporting materials:

What You Need
You will be required to have materials from McGraw-Hill Education which
include the textbook (or eBook) and Connect (which includes LearnSmart,
your adaptive online study tool, and SmartBook, your adaptive eBook). The
required textbook for this class is Chemistry 4th Edition by Julia Burdge.
Your online LearnSmart and homework assignments, which are only available
through Connect, will account for 15% of your grade, so if you do purchase
a used textbook, you must also purchase a Connect access card.

Where to Get It
. Online - All DIGITAL: You can purchase Connect (no print book, but
includes the complete eBook and access to all course content) directly
from the course website as well. To register and purchase Connect
without the print book, follow the steps below.
. Bookstore: Your bookstore has a package which includes the full loose-
leaf version of the text and Two Year Connect access code (you will
need this code to access the online study modules and materials). The
ISBN for this package is 9781260022094. The bookstore also has the Two
Year Connect access code which includes the eBook and access to the
online study modules and materials. The ISBN for this package is
9781260022193. To register for Connect, follow the steps below.

Calculator: A simple scientific calculator is necessary for CHEM 10401. A
scientific calculator is recommended, but a graphing scientific calculator
is not necessary.

Course Description:
An in-depth introduction to the fundamental laws and techniques of
chemistry for majors in science and engineering. Topics include:
measurement; stoichiometry; the gaseous state; thermochemistry; atomic
structure; and chemical bonding; and redox reactions.
This course is the first of a two-semester sequence and consists of
three components (lecture, laboratory, and workshop), which are integrated
to provide a comprehensive but thorough introduction to the principles of
chemistry. The laboratory component introduces students to common
laboratory methods including visible spectroscopy and titration. The
workshop is a peer-led, small group discussion of concepts and problem
solving in general chemistry.

How to succeed in General Chemistry...

Learning Chemistry is cumulative - if you miss a class you will miss a
significant building block, which will affect your exam performance,
scores, and final grade as well as your ability to understand material in
future courses. So, attendance for all lectures, labs, and workshops while
required is critical to your success. Further, your own practice by doing
homework and becoming engaged with the material as well as engaged with
your classmates in workshop and lab discussions of chemical concepts will
help you build your knowledge to succeed. Learning these skills will
prepare you for your chosen major and professional career.

Prerequisites: CHEM 10301 with a grade of C or higher

Course Objectives:
After completing this course, students should be able to:

1. Perform unit conversions and express values with the correct number of
significant figures.
2. Express and interpret atomic symbols, atomic number,
