Students in this course will master a core of basic concepts through which most of chemistry can be understood. CHEM143 is the second in a two-semester general chemistry sequence. The chemical knowledge and skills that you gain in these courses will prepare you for a variety of advanced courses in many subjects. The problem-solving and learning skill that you will develop in these and similar courses are likely to help you throughout your career. This class will consist of three hours of lecture and two hours of lab per week. Chem 144, College Chemistry II- Lab is a required co-requisite
