"I hope that our contributions help Pomona continue its tradition of excellence, and make it possible for students to attend and graduate. Even if our individual gifts are not major gifts, collectively we can make a difference."
Chemistry is a quantitative science and thus reasonable ability with algebra and problem solving is needed for satisfactory performance in general chemistry. Students with low SAT math scores are strongly recommended to improve their mathematics skills before enrolling in CHEM 001A PO. CHEM 051 PO is intended for students with two or more years of high school chemistry; the score on a placement examination is the normal selection criterion.
Chemistry (CHEM) courses satisfy Area 4 of the Breadth of Study Requirements.
