CHEMISTRY (CHEM)

099 Basic Chemistry (3-0-3).  Pre-college chemistry.  Designed to provide a basic background in chemistry.  Does not meet general studies requirements.

100  Introduction to Chemistry (4-0-4). Basic background in the area of chemistry for students planning to take general chemistry. This course will not meet the general studies requirements, but will meet the chemistry requirement for acceptance into health-related programs. PR: Eligibility for MATH 101 or higher or permission of the instructor and student’s advisor.

101  General Chemistry I (3-0-3). A presentation of the principles of chemistry through a study of the structure and reactions of representative elements and compounds. Principles covered include stoichiometry, thermochemistry, chemical bonding, and the gaseous state. CO/PR: MATH 109 or GNET 115.

102  General Chemistry II (3-0-3). A continuation of CHEM 101. Includes solutions, chemical kinetics, equilibrium, acids and bases, and chemical thermodynamics. PR: CHEM 101.

103  General Chemistry I Laboratory (0-3-1). Sessions consist of observing, reporting, and interpreting chemical phenomena. CO/PR: CHEM 101.

104  General Chemistry II Laboratory (0-3-1). Sessions consist of semicro qualitative analysis. CO/PR: CHEM 102.

201  Analytical Chemistry I (2-6-4). Includes a study of gravimetric and volumetric methods of analysis. Laboratory experiments are designed to illustrate and reinforce the concepts discussed in lecture. PR: CHEM 102, CHEM 104.

202  Analytical Chemistry II (2-6-4).A continuation of CHEM 201. Includes a study of potentiometric, electrogravimetric, and optical methods of analysis. Laboratory experiments are designed to illustrate and reinforce the concepts discussed in lecture. PR: CHEM 201.
