|CH 100||Everyday Chemistry with Lab||4||
Introduces chemistry related topics pertaining to everyday life. Includes topics such as renewable energy, clean air and water and global climate change using a relatively nonmathematical approach. Includes atomic/molecular structure, the periodic table, chemical bonding, intermolecular forces, chemical reactions, acids/bases and the social and environmental role of chemistry. Recommended for non-science majors to fulfill the Gen Ed science with lab requirement. Prerequisite: WR 115, RD 115 and MTH 20 or equivalent placement test scores. Audit available.
|CH 121||General Chemistry I||5||
Explores the general principles of chemistry: atomic structure, mole concept, chemical reactions, stoichiometry, and gas laws. This is the first course of a three course sequence. Designed for transfer students or those in a health science program, e.g. Nursing, or for a laboratory science elective. Prerequisite: WR 115 and RD 115 or equivalent placement test scores. Prerequisite/Concurrent: MTH 95. Audit available.
|CH 122||General Chemistry II||5||
Includes stoichiometry, gases, oxidation-reduction, acid-base concepts, equilibrium, physical and chemical properties of solutions, nuclear chemistry, and organic hydrocarbons. This is the second course in a three course sequence. Prerequisite: CH 121. Audit available.
|CH 123||General Chemistry III||5||
Includes fundamental principles of organic chemistry and biochemical processes. This is the third course of a three course sequence. Prerequisite: CH 122. Audit available.
|CH 221||General Chemistry I||5||
Introduces measurements, classification and properties of matter, nomenclature, atomic structure and modern atomic theory, periodic table and chemical periodicity, and chemical bonding. This is the first course in a three course sequence. Recommended for chemistry and other natural science majors, and paraprofessional majors in engineering, medicine and dentistry. Recommended: Successful completion of a high school or a college chemistry class with a lab component in the last 3 years. Prerequisite: WR 115 and RD 115 or equivalent placement test scores. Prerequisite/concurrent: MTH 111. Audit available.
|CH 222||General Chemistry II||5||
Introduces stoichiometry; chemical reactions and equations; thermo chemistry; physical states of matter including properties of gases, liquids, solids and solutions; an introduction to organic chemistry; and chemical kinetics. This is the second course in a three course sequence. Prerequisite: CH 221. Audit available.
|CH 223||General Chemistry III||5||
Introduces acid-base chemistry, ionic equilibria; electrochemistry; nuclear chemistry; thermodynamics; and descriptive chemistry topics. Special topics will be included as time and interest allows. This is the third course in a three course sequence. Prerequisite: CH 222. Audit available.
