Surveys chemical concepts for non-science majors with a focus on practical applications of chemistry and the impact of chemistry on the environment, society, economy, and individual. Prerequisite: None.
Introduces fundamentals of chemistry for those interested in nursing/allied health and those pursuing a non-science degree. Study of the classification, composition, calculations, and properties (both chemical and physical) of matter at the macroscopic, atomic and subatomic levels. Includes measurements and conversions, atomic structure, chemical bonding, chemical reactions, molar stoichiometry, and acid/base chemistry. Prerequisite: MATH 096 with a "C" or better.
Continues the general, organic, and biochemistry series for nursing and allied health majors. Focuses on general structure, function, properties, and chemical reactions of major organic and biochemical compounds. Prerequisite: "C" or better in CHEM& 121 or CHEM& 162.
Introduces fundamentals of inorganic chemistry and problem solving strategies as preparation for the general chemistry sequence (CHEM& 161 and further studies in chemistry). Emphasis is on reaction equations, calculations, and development of symbolic and particulate concepts that are applied to quantitative reasoning in chemistry. Prerequisite: Concurrent enrollment in or completion of MATH 099 with a "C" or better.
Introduces general chemistry concepts, including bonding types, chemical nomenclature, basic atomic structure, stoichiometry, reaction prediction, thermochemistry, gas laws, and quantum mechanical concepts. First course of a three quarter series for engineering, biological science, physical science, pre-med, pre-dental, and math majors. Prerequisite: Concurrent enrollment in or completion of MATH& 141 with a "C" or better, and completion of CHEM& 139 or CHEM& 121 with a "C" or better, or a year of high school chemistry.
Prepares students to successfully complete their own scientific research project by introducing the use of the scientific method, ethics, research methods, proposal writing, and presentation techniques. Prerequisite: Completion of or concurrent enrollment in CHEM& 161 or PHYS& 114 or PHYS& 221 or BIOL& 211 or instructor's permission.
