This program is aimed at college-bound liberal arts majors (non-science or engineering) and is not remedial in nature. Using thematic challenges that engage students' interest, students learn about the impact of chemistry in a context of Arts and Leisure, Food and Drugs, Sustainability, and The Natural and Fabricated World. Students will be expected to have mastered basic algebra. A three-ring binder is required.
