Preparation for Fundamental Chemistry

A developmental course designed to review basic math and chemistry principles for students deficient or insecure in these areas. Stresses individualized instruction and "hands-on" experience. Serves to prepare the student for CHM130.
We now offer in person and on-line classes.

 CHM107

Chemistry and Society

A survey of chemistry and its impact on the environment. Completion of CHM107LL required to meet the Natural Science requirement.
Prerequisites: None. Note: General Education Designation: Natural Sciences (Quantitative) - [SQ] in combination with: CHM107LL.

General Education Designations: SQ

 CHM130

Fundamental Chemistry

A survey of the fundamentals of general chemistry. Emphasis on essential concepts and problem solving techniques. Basic principles of measurement, chemical bonding, structure and reactions, nomenclature, and the chemistry of acids and bases. Preparation for students taking more advanced courses in chemistry. Note: General Education Designation: Natural Sciences (Quantitative) - [SQ] in combination with CHM130LL.

 CHM138

Chemistry for Allied Health

Elements of fundamental and organic chemistry. Includes the general chemical behavior of inorganic matter and the structure of organic and biochemical systems.  Course designed for specific allied health programs at MCCD. May not be applicable to other allied health programs or transferable. Prerequisites: A grade of "C" or better in CHM090, or one year of high school chemistry with a grade of "C" or better, or MAT092, or satisfactory score on placement exam.

 CHM150

General Chemistry I
This course is a 4 credit course and transfers to a University as equivalent to CHM151 plus one chemistry elective credit.
Detailed study of principles of chemistry for science majors and students in pre-professional curricula. General Education Designation: Natural Sciences (Quantitative) - [SQ] in combination with: CHM1151LL. Prerequisites: A grade of "C" or better in [(CHM130 & CHM130LL) or CHM130AA or 1 year of high school chemistry taken within the last 5 years.] and (MAT151 or higher level math course).

General Education Designations: SQ

CHM150 satisfies the same requirements as CHM151 and has the following advantages:

  •  Offers more instructor contact and practice
  •  Delivers course content at a more manageable pace
  •  Allows students to gain a deeper and better understanding of the material
  •  Creates a better foundation for CHM152
  •  Transfer as 4 credits (3 credits equivalent to CHM151 as well as one additional elective credit).
