Course Descriptions

CHEM110. Introduction to General Chemistry Lab

CHEM 110 is a laboratory course designed to accompany CHEM 131. This course will reinforce selected concepts covered in CHEM 131 lecture that are necessary for further work in CHEM 132 and CHEM 111. Emphasis is placed on introducing the student to basic laboratory techniques, data manipulations and analysis used in the general chemistry laboratory. The student will also lean the proper way to maintain a lab notebook and writing scientific laboratory reports. This course is intended for science majors needing to prepare for CHEM 132 and CHEM 111. It does not count toward the chemistry major but does satisfy the General Education science lab requirement. Prerequisite: Two years of high school algebra and Math ACT ? 20 or completion of MATH 131. Co-requisite: CHEM 131. Credit, 1 hour.



CHEM111. General Chemistry Laboratory I

Laboratory for CHEM 132. Three laboratory hours per week. corequisite: CHEM 132. Credit, 1 hour. Offered fall and spring semesters.



CHEM131. Introduction to General Chemistry

Chemistry 131 is an introductory general chemistry course intended for students who have little or no chemistry background. This course is specifically designed to prepare science majors for CHEM 132-General Chemistry I. It is both a conceptual and mathematical course that covers atomic and molecular structure, the periodic table, chemical systematic naming schemes, chemical reactions, stoichiometry, gasses, solutions, acid/bases, oxidation/reduction, and an introduction to chemical equilibrium and nuclear chemistry. This course does not count in the chemistry major or minor but along with CHEM 110 does satisfy the General Education science requirement. Prerequisite: Two years of high school algebra and Math ACT ? 20 or completion of MATH 131. Credit, 3 hours.



CHEM132. General Chemistry I

A foundation course forming the basis of the other more specialized chemistry courses. Fundamental principles and theories of chemistry, chemical calculations, and the properties of the more important elements are stressed. Three lectures per week. Prerequisite: ACT Math of . 23. If ACT Math



CHEM140. Chemistry of Everyday Life

A general education course that introduces students to the principles of chemistry as applied to everyday life. Intended for students who have never taken a chemistry course and would like to learn what chemistry is and how it affects the world we live in. This course requires minimal mathematical work. The four and one half class hours per week will include both lecture and laboratory. This course provide no credit toward a chemistry major or a minor. Credit, 4 hours. Prerequisite: None. However, students with an ACT Math of

Laboratory for CHEM 232. Three laboratory hours per week. Prerequisite: CHEM 111. Co requisite: Enrollment in CHEM 232 or consent of the instructor. Credit, 1 hour. Offered fall and spring semesters.



CHEM232. General Chemistry II

A continuation of CHEM 132 emphasizing equilibrium, solution chemistry, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, descriptive inorganic chemistry and elementary organic chemistry. Prerequisite: CHEM 132 or special examination and consent of instructor. Three lectures per week. Credit, 3 hours. Offered fall and spring semesters.



CHEM321. Organic Chemistry Lab I

Laboratory for CHEM 331. The laboratory experiments introduces organic lab skills and techniques used in the preparation, separation, purification, identification, and study of the properties of organic compounds. Emphasis on small scale and green chemistry. Three laboratory hours plus 1 hour of pre-lab meeting per week. Prerequisite: CHEM 211 Co requisite, CHEM 331. Credit, 2 hour. Offered fall semesters.



CHEM322. Organic Chemistry Lab II

Laboratory for CHEM 332. A continuation of CHEM 321 with emphasis on synthesis that highlights the concepts learned in lecture. Emphasis on small scale and green chemistry. Three laboratory hours plus 1 hour of pre-lab meeting per week. Prerequisite: CHEM 321, 331, co requisite: CHEM 332. Credit, 1 hour. Offered spring semesters.



CHEM328. Analytical Chemistry Laboratory

Laboratory for CHEM 336. Three laboratory hours and one lecture per week. Prerequisite: or co requisite: CHEM 336. Credit, 2 hours. Offered spring semesters.
