CHEM 115 Accelerated General Chemistry: Giants in Science (4 credits)

Offered by: Chemistry (Faculty of Science)


Chemistry : An advanced combined version of CHEM 110 and CHEM 120 that will emphasize developments in the chemical sciences that changed the way nature was understood, focusing, where possible, on examples that led to Nobel Prizes.

Terms: Fall 2010

Instructors: Jean-Marc Gauthier (Fall)

  • Fall

  • Prerequisite: Grade 12 Chemistry

  • Corequisites: PHYS 131 and MATH 140 or 150

  • Restrictions: Enrollment is restricted to students who have obtained a grade greater than 95% in their high school university preparatory chemistry course (e.g., the Ontario Grade 12 University Preparation Chemistry Course [SCH4U]). Not open to students who are taking or have taken CHEM 110 or CHEM 120.

  • Note: CHEM 115 and (CHEM 110 plus CHEM 120) are considered equivalent from a prerequisite point of view. If you are planning on applying to medical school, note that some medical schools require applicants to have two general chemistry courses; at McGill you would have to take an additional physical chemistry course like CHEM 204 or equivalent to meet this requirement.
