Credits 0 / 3 Contact Hours
Pre-requisite: Placement into RDNG-030 (ACSR-030), completion of ELAP-110 with a minimum grade of 2.0, or successful completion of RDNG-016 or ACLT-074 with a minimum grade of 3.0.  Co-requisite: CHEM-111  and CHEM-111R  Note: This course requires chemical splashproof goggles and lab coat on the first day of class. A non-programmable/non-graphing scientific calculator is required. TI 30X IIS recommended.
The lab section of a one-semester course for non-science majors. The course covers the knowledge and understanding of selected fundamentals principles facts and laws of chemistry. The laboratory work involves basic chemical techniques and practical application of principles.

Course Outcomes
1. To introduce the non-science major, who often has not taken chemistry in high school, to the basic fundamentals of chemistry 2. To introduce an understanding of the scientific approach to problem solving and the system nature of science 3. To familiarize the student with some basic chemical principles: the atomic theory, the use of the periodic chart to explain chemical bonding, and similarities and differences possessed by elements and compounds, some simple mathematical problems to illustrate the quantitative nature of chemistry, etc. 4. To develop an appreciation for the vital role which chemistry plays in history and today’s society. Practical use and application of chemistry is emphasized whenever possible
