FUNDAMENTALS OF COLLEGE
Chemistry 120 is a course in the fundamentals of chemistry with the emphasis on health science related examples. This course and Chemistry 121 are designed for health science (e.g. nursing), home economics, physical therapy, and other majors that need a year of college chemistry that includes inorganic, organic and biochemistry. Chemistry 120 covers inorganic chemistry. Chemistry 120 does not involve the level of mathematical applications that are found in Chemistry 101. Lecture 4 hours, discussion-laboratory 3 hours.
Prerequisite: Mathematics 141 or one year of algebra in high school. Note: This course is not for science majors. At Glendale Community College, Chemistry 120 satisfies the prerequisite for Chemistry 121 only.
