Chem 1301 Section 1

This page provides some general information about CHEM1301 section 001.  Detailed course information will be available through Blackboard (ttu.blackboard.com).

The following is an excerpt from the 2015 fall syllabus. Dr. Cozzolino’s calculator policy is available here.


The purpose of CHEM 1301 is to prepare students for the general chemistry sequence, Principles of Chemistry I (1307) and II (1308).  The focus of CHEM 1301 is on helping students master the basics that are vital to success in this and all higher level chemistry courses.
