Course SummaryChemistry 111L: Chemistry I with Lab has been evaluated and recommended for 3 semester hours for the course and 1 semester hour for the lab. These credits may be transferred to over 2,000 colleges and universities. This course requires you to complete 10 hands-on lab experiments that will demonstrate relevant chemistry concepts. We've partnered with eScience Labs to make these experiments available to you, and you will need to order one of their custom lab kits to complete the experiments. You can find all of the information you need to order the custom lab kit under the 'Lab Experiments' section of the course syllabus.

Course Practice TestCheck your knowledge of this course with a 50-question practice test.
- Comprehensive test covering all topics
- Detailed video explanations for wrong answers
The course objective is to provide students with a comprehensive overview of various chemistry topics such as the structure of atoms, chemical compounds, chemical bonding, scientific measurement, and energy.
Your grade for this course will be calculated out of 300 points. The minimum score required to pass and become eligible for college credit for this course is 210 points, or an overall course grade of 70%. The table below shows how your overall grade will be calculated.
|Course Requirements||Possible Points|
|10 Lab Experiments||100|
|Proctored Final Exam||100|
Quizzes are meant to test your comprehension of each lesson as you progress through the course. Here's a breakdown of how you will be graded on quizzes and how they'll factor into your final score:
- You will have 3 attempts to take each quiz for a score.
- The highest score of your first 3 attempts will be recorded as your score for each quiz.
- When you've completed the course, the highest scores from your first 3 attempts at each quiz will be averaged together and weighed against the total possible points for quizzes. For instance, if your average quiz score is 85%, you'll receive 85 out of 100 possible points for quizzes.
- After your initial 3 attempts, you can take a quiz for practice as many times as you'd like.
- You will need to pass each quiz with a score of at least 80% to earn course progress for the lesson. However, it is not necessary to earn 80% within the first three quiz attempts.
Proctored Final Exam
The proctored final exam is a cumulative test designed to ensure that you've mastered the material in the course.
- You'll earn points equivalent to the percentage grade you receive on your proctored final. (So if you earn 90% on the final, that's 90 points toward your final grade.)
- If you're unsatisfied with your score on the exam, you'll be eligible to retake the exam after a 3-day waiting period.
- You can only retake the exam twice, so be sure to use your study guide and fully prepare yourself before you take the exam again.
Items Allowed on Study.com Proctored Exam for Chemistry 111: Chemistry I:
- Blank scratch paper
- Pen or pencil
- A non-graphing, scientific calculator (We'll provide you access to Desmos scientific calculator during the final exam.)
Items NOT Allowed on Study.com Proctored Exam for Chemistry 111: Chemistry I:
- Office programs, web browsers, or any programs other than Software Secure (including Study.com lessons)
- Textbooks (digital or physical)
- Mobile phones, headphones, speakers, TVs, or radios
- Notebooks or notes
- Graphing calculators
The 10 lab experiments that you need to complete in this course give you the opportunity to demonstrate the concepts you've learned in this course in a practical setting. Here's a breakdown of how you will be graded on each lab experiment and how they'll factor into your final score:
- You will need to download, complete, and submit the lab workbook for each experiment in this course. Instructions on how to do this are included in each individual lab experiment asset.
- You will only be graded on the pre-lab and post-lab questions in your workbooks. Each question will be worth one point.
- The grade you receive on a lab workbook will be a percentage based on the number of questions you got correct out of the total number of questions in the workbook.
- Once you've completed all 10 lab experiments, your percentage scores will be averaged together and weighed against the total possible points for lab experiments. For instance, if the average of all your percentage scores is 90%, then you'll receive 90 out of 100 possible points for the lab experiment requirement in this course.
