Chemistry & Global Awareness
Introduction to the scientific method, how chemists approach the study of nature, interrelationships between theory and experiment, and the nature of scientific information. These concepts are discussed in the context of modern environmental concerns such as energy utilization, global warming, and water/air pollution. Designed specifically for non-science majors. Credit for CHM-101 cannot be granted after completion of any course in the chemistry major sequence.
Foundations of Chemistry
Introduction to the principles of chemistry. Topics include: atomic and molecular structure and chemical bonding, stoichiometry, properties of the states of matter, and energetics of chemical reactions with emphasis on problem solving, conceptual understanding, and analytical reasoning. Laboratory focuses on quantitative measurements and interpretation of data.
