CHEM 1211. Principles of Chemistry 1 (3-0-3) Prerequisite: MATH 1111 with a minimum grade of C or Math Placement of MATH 1113 or higher. Corequisite: CHEM 1211L. This first course in a two-semester sequence covers the fundamental principles and applications of chemistry, and is designed for science majors. Topics include atomic structure, stoichiometry, gases, thermochemistry, quantum-mechanical model, periodic properties, chemical bonding, molecular geometry, valance bond and molecular orbital theories.
CHEM 1211L. Principles of Chemistry 1 Lab (0-3-1) Co-requisite: CHEM 1211. Laboratory exercises supplement the lecture materials and develop knowledge of chemical concepts. It includes experiments on density, separation of mixtures, empirical formula; molar mass; acid-base and redox titration, calorimetry, and molecular geometry. (Course fee required.)
CHEM 1151. Survey of Chemistry 1 (3-0-3) Corequisite: CHEM 1151L. First course in a two-semester sequence covering elementary principles of general, organic and biochemistry designed for allied health profession majors. Topics to be covered include elements and compounds, chemical equations, nomenclature, and molecular geometry. (Course fee required.)
CHEM 1151L. Survey of Chemistry 1 Lab (0-2-1) Corequisite: CHEM 1151. Lab experiments include laboratory measurements, density determination, separation of mixture, empirical formula, types of chemical reactions, consumer products, specific heat, rates of reactions, pH and buffers, and acid-base titration. (Course fee required.)
GEOL 1121. Introductory Geo-sciences 1: Physical Geology (3-0-3) Co-requisite: GEOL 1121L. This course will explore the fundamental processes that have formed and continue to shape the earth geologically. Surficial and internal geologic processes will be explored in the context of plate tectonics and impacts on society (both modern and historical). Geologic hazards and earth resources will be examined, including the interaction between humans and the geological aspects of our environment. The lab component (GEOL 1121L) must be registered for separately.
GEOL 1121L. Introductory Geoscience 1: Physical Geology Lab (0-2-1) Co-requisite: GEOL 1121. Co-requisite: GEOL 1121. The accompanying lab to GEOL 1121. The major focus of the laboratory is the application of basic geologic principles in the identification of minerals and rocks, analysis of maps and geologic data sets, the use of geologic tools, and exploration of the scientific method in the course of geologic science. GEOL1121 must be registered for separately. (Course fee required.)
