CHM 1020. CHEMISTRY IN EVERYDAY LIFE.
Meets general education requirement for non-science major. Study of some basic concepts in inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry and biochemistry. Students apply principles as they analyze, discuss and make decisions on chemically related problems that affect everyday life. (Not prerequisite for any other science course.).
CHM 1025C. INTRODUCTION TO GENERAL CHEMISTRY.
Prerequisite: Minimum grade of C in high school Honors Algebra II or MAT 1033C or higher MAC prefix course.
Prepares students without high school chemistry or with inadequate background for CHM 1045C. Modern chemical theories used to develop understanding of fundamentals of inorganic chemistry and its applications. Emphasis on quantitative relationships, using dimensional analysis to solve problems. Laboratory experiences are integral part of course. May not be taken for credit subsequent to earning C or better in CHM 1045C. (Special Fee: $77.00).
CHM 1045C. GENERAL CHEMISTRY WITH QUALITATIVE ANALYSIS.
Prerequisite: Minimum grade of C in either CHM 1025C or one year of high school chemistry; and MAC 1105 or honor's high school Algebra II with a minimum grade of C.
A study of the basic principles of chemistry including chemical reactivity, atomic structure, chemical bonding, molecular geometry, periodicity, stoichiometry, and kinetic-molecular treatment of gases. Laboratory illustrates principles discussed in classroom. (Special Fee: $77.00).
CHM 1045H. GENERAL CHEMISTRY WITH QUALITATIVE ANALYSIS I -HONORS.
Same as CHM 1045C with honors content. Honors program permission required. (Special Fee: $77.00).
CHM 1046C. GENERAL CHEMISTRY WITH QUALITATIVE ANALYSIS II.
Prerequisite: CHM 1045C with C or better.
Continuation of CHM 1045C dealing mainly with equilibrium theory, thermodynamics, chemical kinetics and electrochemistry. Laboratory illustrates principles of ionic equilibria within framework of qualitative analysis.
(Special Fee: $77.00).
CHM 1046H. GENERAL CHEMISTRY WITH QUALITATIVE ANALYSIS II HONORS.
Same as CHM 1046C with honors content. Honors program permission required. (Special Fee: $77.00).
CHM 1205C. INTRODUCTION TO ORGANIC AND BIOCHEMESTRY.
Prerequisites: CHM 1025C (or one year of high school chemistry with a minimum grade of C) and MAT 0020C or MAT 0024C with a minimum grade of C or an appropriate score on an approved assessment.
Introduces students planning careers in health-related fields or in life sciences to organic and biochemistry. Study of structures and typical reactions of functional groups, structures and functions of classes of biomolecules and energy flows of biological systems. Laboratory portion of course provides students with exercises illustrating principles of organic and biochemistry.
(Special Fee: $77.00).
CHM 2210C. ORGANIC CHEMISTRY I.
Prerequisite: CHM 1046C or comparable college-level general chemistry course.
This course deals with organic compounds, their properties, reactions, and synthesis, emphasizing dependence of properties and reaction mechanisms upon structure. Laboratory illustrates techniques of separation, identification, and purification. (Special Fee: $182.00).
CHM 2211C. ORGANIC CHEMISTRY II.
CHM 2933. SPECIAL TOPICS IN CHEMISTRY.
Prerequisites: CHM 1045C and departmental approval. For advanced students in chemistry who wish to pursue certain topics in detail in chemistry as chosen by class; to research topics; to present information and lead discussion with other students and faculty members. Lecture/laboratory instruction. Multiple credit course. May be repeated for maximum of three hours of credit and grade forgiveness cannot be applied.
CHM 2941. INTERNSHIP EXPLORATION IN CHEMISTRY.
Prerequisites: Satisfactory completition of all mandated courses in Reading, Mathematics, English and English for Acadmic Approval; a minimum 2.0 institutional or overall GPA; and 12 credits, including CHM 1025C or CHM 1045C.
The Program Director/Program Chair/Program Coordinator or Internship Placement Office has the discretion to provide override approval as it relates to the waiver of required program/discipline-related courses.
This course is a planned work-based experience that provides students with supervised career exploration activities and/ or practical experiences. Each earned credit of internship requires a minimum of 80 clock hours of work. Multiple credit course. May be repeated for credit, but grade forgiveness cannot be applied. (Internship Fee: $10.00).
