4 credits (PREREQUISITE: Placement in or completion of ENG 101 and completion of MATH 125 or higher with a "C" or better)

This course is a survey study of chemistry. Emphasis is on the aspects of General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry. These concepts will include interactions of matter and energy, nuclear radiation, measurement, chemical reactions, solutions, gas laws, acid and bases, as well as general concepts of organic chemistry, and the four major organic compound groups essential for life (Lipids, Carbohydrates, Proteins, and Nucleic Acids). Laboratory sessions are coordinated with the lectures and emphasize experimentation and application of the lecture content. SCI (F, Sp, Su)
