General Chemistry I

These pages contain material relating to a first semester undergraduate course in general chemistry. A typical semster course would cover this material with approximately 38 lectures.

The topics include:

A recommended text is "Chemistry: The Central Science" by Brown, LeMay and Bursten. The above material would cover the first eleven chapters.

This project was originally started as an experimental teaching aid for my undergraduate chemistry course at Florida State University, in Fall 1996 (and also for me to learn the basics of HTML). A rough draft was placed on the web for the use of the students in the class. As time went by, however, it became clear that students and faculty outside of FSU also found the notes helpful. The response to the original project motivated me to try to polish it up a bit. The current form is hopefully arranged in a more useful manner.
