Chemistry Course Descriptions

+1105 Chemistry for Non-Majors
The study of the basic principles of chemistry with an emphasis upon application to agriculture, nursing, and other non-science majors. Lecture and laboratory.
Pre: High School Algebra or MATH 1513 recommended.
+1115 General Chemistry I
The more important principles upon which chemistry is based. Also includes a study of many of the elements, the periodic classification of the elements,
acid base chemistry, the meaning of equations, and equilibria. Lecture and laboratory. Pre: MATH 1513 (or concurrent enrollment).
+1215 General Chemistry II
Continuation of Chemistry 1115. Lecture and laboratory. Pre: CHEM 1115 and MATH 1513.
3011 Science Fair Judging
  This course is designed as a service-learning experience to allow students to apply their scientific knowledge in helping guide and judge science fair projects created by elementary, middle and high school students at local and regional science fairs. May be taken for maximum credit of 3 hours. Pre: 3 courses in chemistry and/or biology.
3012 Science Fair Judging
  This course is designed as a service-learning experience to allow students to apply their scientific knowledge in helping guide and judge science fair projects created by elementary, middle and high school students at local and regional science fairs.
May be taken for maximum credit of 3 hours. Pre: 3 courses in chemistry and/or biology.
+3015 Classical Chemical Analysis
The principles of chemical stiochiometry and equilibrium are supplied to gravimetric and volumetric quantitative analysis. An introduction to simple instrumental methods is included. Pre: Chemistry 1215. Lecture and laboratory.
+3025 Instrumental Chemical Analysis
The principles of optical and eletrochemical methods are applied to qualitative and quantitative analysis. Separation techniques are studied and some nuclear and thermal analytical methods are included. Pre: Chemistry 1215. Lecture and laboratory.
