General Chemistry 2

College Science Prerequisites, Course Description and Textbooks

General Chemistry 2 (CHEM102) - Prerequisites

High School Diploma or equivalent, and General Chemistry 1 or equivalent.

General Chemistry 2 (CHEM102) - Course Description

General Chemistry 2 requires four weekends to complete. The accelerated chemistry classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30am to 6:30pm.
(4 Semester Units, includes lab*)

The General Chemistry 2 course further develops the concepts of chemical bonding in order to appreciate the size, shape, polarity and macroscopic behavior of molecules. The processes of oxidation-reduction will be explained, particularly as they apply to biological systems. Solution chemistry will be introduced, stressing the concepts of equilibria and colligative properties. Acid/base chemistry, including titrimetry, buffers, and pH will be studied. Nuclear chemistry in the evolution of matter will be briefly considered. Organic chemistry will be introduced as a corollary to concepts presented in the weekend college chemistry course.

*If the college or university to which the student intends to transfer Integrated Science Program (ISP) courses requires 5 instead of 4 semester units per portion of a course (either 1 or 2), we offer 1 semester unit independent study courses for each formal course which provide empirically-based studies that enhance, deepen, and further integrate knowledge of the subject by developing different problem-solving skills and conceptual organization than those fostered in formal classroom and laboratory learning.
