Course Descriptions

Course Types:


CHM 099   Pre-A&P Foundations in Chemistry (2)

Prerequisites: MAT 098

This course will serve as a chemistry prerequisite for Anatomy and Physiology I for students. This will not replace CHM 101/103 or CHM 106 in a degree, and does not serve as a general education course. It is assumed this is the first chemistry course taken by the student. Topics include structure of atoms, bonding, solutions, acid-base, chemical reactions, energy and gases. This course will be graded on a Pass/Fail basis.

Course Type(s): On-Campus

CHM 101   Introduction to Chemistry (3)

Prerequisites: MAT 098 with a grade of "C" or better

Corequisites: CHM 103

Introduction to basic principles of chemistry, including measurements and problem-solving, atomic theory, chemical nomenclature, chemical reactions, molecular structure, properties of gases, liquids and solids, acid-base chemistry and oxidation-reduction chemistry.

Course Type(s): On-Campus Hybrid

CHM 103   Introduction to Chemistry Laboratory (1)

Corequisites: CHM 101

Hands-on course with emphasis on proper laboratory techniques and experimental activities that illustrate concepts studied in CHM 101.

Course Type(s): On-Campus

CHM 106   Chemistry for Allied Health (4)

Prerequisites: MAT 098 with a grade of "C" or better

This is a one-semester lab and lecture course providing students with basic concepts in general, organic, and biological chemistry. It will assist students in problem-solving skills and significantly emphasize the applications of chemistry to human health. This is not a general education course for the AA Degree.

Course Type(s): On-Campus

CHM 115   General Chemistry I (5)

Prerequisites: 1 year of High School Chemistry or CHM 101 or equivalent and MAT 121 with a grade of C or better.

Study of how compounds are formed and named, chemical equations, calculations and problem-solving involving elements, compounds and chemical equations including stoichiometry, thermochemistry; properties of gases, solids, solutions, and acids and bases. Experiments introduce basic lab skills and aspects of qualitative and quantitative analysis.

Course Type(s): On-Campus

CHM 116   General Chemistry II (5)

Prerequisites: CHM 115 with a grade of C or better; or CHM 110 & 113 with a grade of C or better; and MAT 158,160 or 162 or higher with a grade of C or better.

Continuation of Chemistry I. Includes study of chemical equilibria, acid-base chemistry, complex ions, thermodynamics, oxidation-reduction reactions, nuclear chemistry, and introduction to organic chemistry. Experiments continue to introduce and improve laboratory skills and problem solving.

Course Type(s): On-Campus

CHM 222   Quantitative Analysis (4)

Prerequisites: CHM 116, with a grade of C or better.

Principles and practice of quantitative chemistry including descriptive statistics; equilibria pertaining to acid-base, complexometric, redox and solubility; electroanalytical chemistry, gravimetric and  volumetric analysis; spectrophotometric analysis and an introduction to chromatography. Fall

Course Type(s): On-Campus

CHM 240   Organic Chemistry I (3)

Prerequisites: CHM 116, with a grade of C or better.

Introduction to structure, nomenclature, properties, synthesis and reactions of aliphatic and aromatic carbon compounds.

Course Type(s): On-Campus

CHM 241   Organic Chemistry II (3)

Prerequisites: CHM 240, with a grade of C or better.

Corequisites: CHM 243

Continuation of study of structure, nomenclature, properties, synthesis and reactions of aliphatic and aromatic carbon compounds with emphasis on chemistry of carbonyl compounds. Spring

Course Type(s): On-Campus

CHM 243   Organic Chemistry Laboratory (2)

Prerequisites: CHM 240, with a grade of C or better or equivalent.

Corequisites: CHM 241

Hands-on introduction to laboratory techniques and procedures of organic synthesis and identification. Spring
