Introduction to Chemistry
This collection contains the California Open Educational Resources Council (COERC) list of peer-reviewed textbooks for Introduction to Chemistry (common course-id CHEM 110, CHEM 120S) , two of the top 50 college courses identified for inclusion in the California Open Online Library for Education (COOLforEd). CHEM 110 covers the same material as the first semester of CHEM 120S, a year-long course.
CID Number: CHEM 110 http://www.c-id.net/descriptor_details.html?descriptor=297

General Course Description:
This is the first semester of a one-year course in chemistry intended for majors in the natural sciences (chemistry, biochemistry, biology, physics, pre-medicine), mathematics, and engineering.
Minimum Units: 5 units, including at least 1 unit of laboratory
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.
Laboratory Activities (if applicable):
The laboratory sequence will support the above topics including both qualitative and quantitative experiments, analysis of data and error propagation.
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 the course, each student should be able to employ standard laboratory techniques appropriate to the course content, such as titration.
