CHE 101

INTRODUCTION TO CHEMISTRY I WITH LAB

5 CR. (4L/2 LBA)

PRQ: MAT 090, REA 090, ENG 060, CIS 110, or equivalent assessment test score. Includes the study of measurements, atomic theory, chemical bonding, nomenclature, stoichiometry, solutions, acid and base, gas laws, and condensed states.  Laboratory experiments demonstrate the above concepts qualitatively and quantitatively.  Designed for non-science majors, students in occupational and health programs, or students with no chemistry background. This course is one of the Statewide Guaranteed Transfer courses.  GT-SC1.

 

CHE 102

INTRODUCTION TO CHEMISTRY II WITH LAB

5 CR. (4L/2 LBA)

PRQ: CHE 101, MAT 090, REA 090, ENG 060, CIS 110, or equivalent assessment test scores. Focuses on introductory organic and biochemistry (sequel to Introduction to Chemistry I). Includes the study of hybridization of atomic orbitals for carbon, nomenclature of both organic and biochemical compounds, physical and chemical properties of various functional groups of organic chemistry, and physical and chemical properties of biochemical compounds along with their biochemical pathways. Incorporates laboratory experiments. This course is one of the Statewide Guaranteed Transfer courses.  GT-SC1.

 

CHE 104

CONCEPTS OF CHEMISTRY I

4 CR. (3L/2 LBA)

PRQ: MAT 090, REA 090, ENG 060, CIS 110, or equivalent assessment test scores. Includes the study of measurements, atomic theory, chemical bonding, nomenclature, stoichiometry, solutions, acid and base, and gas laws. Designed for non-science majors, students in occupational and health programs, or students with no chemistry background. This course has no lab and may not be transferable. Equivalent of CHE 101 lecture.

 

CHE 105

CHEMISTRY IN CONTEXT

5 CR. (4L/2 LBA)

PRQ: CHE 101, MAT 090, REA 090, ENG 060, CIS 110, or equivalent assessment test scores. Covers the study of measurements, matter, molecules, atoms, chemical bonding, nomenclature, energy, acids, bases, and nutrition. Course work examines chemistry in the modern world and surveys the current knowledge as well as the conceptual framework of the discipline. Chemistry as a science is explored, as is the impact of chemistry on society. This course includes laboratory experience and is designed for non-science majors. This course is one of the Statewide Guaranteed Transfer courses.  GT-SC1.

 

CHE 109

GENERAL, ORGANIC, AND BIOCHEMISTRY

4 CR. (4L)

PRQ: CHE 101, MAT 090, REA 090, ENG 060, CIS 110, or equivalent assessment test scores. Focuses on fundamentals of inorganic, organic and biochemistry primarily for students in health science, non-science majors and/or students in the occupational and health related career areas. Includes the study of measurement, atomic theory, chemical bonding, nomenclature, stoichiometry, solutions, acid and base chemistry, gas laws, condensed states of matter and nuclear chemistry, nomenclature of organic compounds, properties of different functional groups, nomenclature of various biological compounds, their properties and biological pathways. This course has no lab and may not be transferable. Equivalent of CHE 102 lecture.

 

CHE 111

GENERAL COLLEGE CHEMISTRY I WITH LAB

5 CR. (4L/2 LBA)

PRQ: CHE 101, MAT 106, REA 090, ENG 090, CIS 110, or equivalent assessment test scores. Focuses on basic chemistry and measurement, matter, chemical formulas, reactions and equations, stoichiometry and thermochemistry.  This course covers the development of atomic theory culminating in the use of quantum numbers to determine electron configurations of atoms, and the relationship of electron configuration to chemical bond theory and molecular orbital theory.  The course includes gases, liquids, and solids and problem-solving skills are emphasized through laboratory experiments. This course is one of the Statewide Guaranteed Transfer courses. GT-SC1

 

CHE 112

GENERAL COLLEGE CHEMISTRY II WITH LAB
