CHM 098 PRECHEMISTRY (3)

This course is designed primarily for students with a limited background in Chemistry studies. It is beneficial for those needing an introduction to Chemistry, or are pursuing a degree a liberal arts and/or non-science majors requiring credit in a physical science course with a laboratory. Students are given an introduction to the fundamental concepts in chemistry; solve basic problems relating to chemical reactions, and a general understanding of the vocabulary, theories, and practices in chemistry.

CHM 099 PRECHEMISTRY LAB (1)

Prerequisite: Math 099 or consent of the instructor.

CHM 110 CHEMISTRY FOR GENERAL EDUCATION (3)

This course is a study of fundamental principles and applications of chemistry. Will include metric units, elements and compounds, chemicals and formulas, reactions and equations, Lewis structures, molar calculations, matter and energy, heat of reaction, qualities of water, ionic compounds, covalent compounds, solutions, pH, properties of atoms, radioactive decay, polymers, introduction to organic chemistry and biomolecules. Includes selected environmental topics. A terminal course in chemistry intended for students in the humanities, education, and the allied health sciences. Satisfies requirements of General Education. Prerequisite: Math 110 or consent of the instructor.

CHM 111 CHEMISTRY FOR GENERAL EDUCATION LABORATORY (1)

This course complements the CHM 110 Chemistry for General Education Lecture. The lab portion of General Chemistry provides and introduction to the concepts of chemical research such as: chemical lab safety, identifying inorganic salts, identifying organic materials, measuring gas volumes, measuring liquid volumes, measuring concentration, determining measurement accuracy, determining reaction stoichiometry, and making pH measurements.
Prerequisite: Math 110 or consent of the instructor. Pre- or co-requisite: CHM 110

CHM 201 INTRODUCTION TO ORGANIC CHEMISTRY (3)

This is an introductory organic and biochemistry course designed for students who have successfully completed our CHM 110 chemistry course. The organic portion of this course introduces nomenclature, functional groups, organic structures, and types of reactions. The biochemistry portion of this course emphasizes the structure, function and metabolism of the four classes of macromolecules: carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids. Prerequisite: Math 110 and CHM 110 and 111 with grade of ā€œCā€ or higher.

CHM 202 INTRODUCTION TO ORGANIC CHEMISTRY LAB (1)

An introductory organic and biochemistry course designed for students who have successfully completed a previous chemistry course. The organic portion of this course introduces nomenclature, functional groups, organic structures, and types of reactions. The biochemistry portion of this course emphasizes the structure, function and metabolism of the four classes of macromolecules: carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids.
