Prefatory Matter


Introductory and preparatory chemistry courses hold a particular importance to students across a wide range of academic specialties and majors. In addition to serving as a potential primer for students interested in the possibility of majoring in chemistry, introductory and preparatory chemical education has been actively integrated into the curriculum of other fields within the natural science spectrum (such as biology and physics). Additionally, under the umbrella of requisite coursework, it has gained a strong pertinence to applied sciences such as nursing, engineering, and exercise physiology (Tai, Sadler, and Loehr 2005).
