225 Principles of Organic Chemistry (Outline)
An introduction to organic chemistry. The course focuses on the properties and reactions of common classes of organic compounds; the relationship between the structures of organic compounds and their physical and chemical properties. Some reaction mechanisms are also covered. Note: this course can be used as a prerequisite for CHEM 255, but it does not qualify as a prerequisite for any other upper level chemistry course.
Prerequisite: CHEM 100 or 120. Three credits and laboratory.

231 Physical Chemistry I (Outline)
An introductory course in physical chemistry that begins with a discussion of the properties of ideal and real gases. The fundamental principles of thermodynamics (the three laws of thermodynamics) are introduced and their application to physical and chemical transformations is discussed. The course will conclude with the introduction of the chemical potential and its application to phase equilibria, ideal solutions (Raoult’s and Henry’s laws), and colligative properties.
Prerequisites: CHEM 100 or 120; MATH 111/112 or 121/122. Three credits and laboratory.
- June 2004 -

232 Physical Chemistry II (Outline)
Building upon the principles developed in CHEM 231, this course describes the thermodynamics of real systems. Students will learn the applications of chemical thermodynamics, including phase equilibria in multi-component systems, chemical equilibrium, and electrochemistry; the principles governing the dynamics of systems, including the kinetic molecular theory of gases, transport properties, and the rates of chemical reactions.
Prerequisite: CHEM 231. Three credits and laboratory.
- June 2004 -

245 Basic Inorganic Chemistry  (Outline)
An introductory course on the properties and uses of the main group elements; the practical and commercial uses of various inorganic compounds and elements; and the factors contributing to the energies and types of chemical bonds.
Prerequisite: CHEM 100 or 120. Three credits and laboratory.
- June 2004 -

255 Introductory Biochemistry
The structures and properties of common organic compounds of biological interest. Areas of study include: biochemical energetics, structures and mechanisms of action of some enzymes, chemical pathways of metabolism, mechanisms of action of certain drugs, and experimental techniques used by biochemists.
Prerequisites: CHEM 225 or 221, but CHEM 220 is recommended. Three credits and laboratory.
- June 2004 -

265 Basic Analytical & Environmental Chemistry (Outline)
An introductory course which includes a survey of aqueous titration methods, the evaluation of analytical data, and an introduction to electrochemistry, UV visible absorption spectroscopy and chromatography.
Prerequisite: CHEM 100 or 120. Three credits and laboratory.
- March 2006 -
 

299 Introduction to Teaching and Educational Research in the Physical Sciences
An introduction to teaching and educational research with a focus on concepts and content from the physical sciences, this course is suitable for science and mathematics students seeking opportunities to explore the art of teaching based on physical sciences educational research findings. Topics include principles and concepts of teaching and tutoring, moving content into context, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education, and opportunities to connect with learners and educators in both the public school system and at the undergraduate level.
Prerequisite: Phys100 or 120 or Chem 100 or 120 and Math 111/112. Three credits, no laboratory
