This is a foundation course designed in collaboration with nursing and health sciences. Students will be introduced to the basics of general, organic, and biochemistry to help them understand the role of chemistry in our lives and health. Both quantitative and qualitative descriptions of matter and the changes that matter undergoes will be studied. The interrelationships of chemistry with other areas/disciplines will be stressed. Chemistry boosts numerical, analytical, and problem solving skills which are valuable in the health professions and general education.
