CHM-115 - CHEMISTRY IN CONTEXT

Lecture: 3

Lab: 2

Credit: 4

Students will learn basic general chemistry in the context of studying aspects of chemistry visible to a non-scientist in our society. Selected areas of chemistry such as water, fire, and our environment will be included, with an emphasis on the interface between chemistry and human everyday experiences. Prerequisite: Completion of MAT-062 with a D-.

CHM-122 - INTRODUCTION TO GENERAL CHEMISTRY

Lecture: 3

Lab: 2

Credit: 4

This introductory course is intended for non-science majors or for science majors who need a background in chemistry before taking College Chemistry I. Topics covered include properties of matter, measurements, atomic structure, chemical bonding and stoichiometry. Prerequisite: One year high school algebra or MAT-062.

CHM-165 - GENERAL CHEMISTRY I

Lecture: 3

Lab: 2

Credit: 4

The first semester of a traditional two-semester sequence. General Chemistry I provides an in-depth and integrated study of chemical principles, including terminology, measurements, unit conversions, atoms, elements, molecules, compounds, moles, stoichiometry, gases and gas laws, energy, electron configurations, periodicity and chemical bonding. Prerequisite: 1 year high school chemistry or CHM-122 or BIO-252

CHM-175 - GENERAL CHEMISTRY II

Lecture: 3

Lab: 2

Credit: 4

The second semester of the traditional two semester sequence. General Chemistry II covers basic principles of intermolecular forces, colligative properties, reaction kinetics, chemical equilibria, acids and bases, precipitation reactions, spontaneity and electrochemistry. Prerequisite: CHM-165.

CHM-263 - ORGANIC CHEMISTRY I

Lecture: 4

Lab: 2

Credit: 5

Fundamental principles of organic chemistry for premedical, pre-dental, pre-pharmacy, biochemistry, medical technology, forestry, and home economics students, as well as liberal arts students who have a special interest in the sciences. These general principles are illustrated by preparation and study of typical representatives of the aliphatic and aromatic series including all common functional groups. Prerequisite: CHM-175.

CHM-273 - ORGANIC CHEMISTRY II

Lecture: 4

Lab: 2

Credit: 5

Continuation of Organic Chemistry 1, with advanced synthesis, instrumental analysis, and emphasis on biochemistry. Prerequisite: CHM-263.
