The following courses are supported by guided study groups in fall and spring semesters except for Phys 211 and 250 which will have summer sessions. Refer to your syllabus or canvas page for zoom session times and links.
CHEM 110 - Chemical Principles I (3)
Basic concepts and quantitative relations.
CHEM 112-Chemical Principals II (3)
Reaction rates and chemical kinetics, catalysis, acid-base equilibria, the pH scale, common-ion effect, acid-base titrations, factors that affect solubility, buffers, chemical thermodynamics, entropy, free energy, electrochemistry, oxidation-reduction reactions, oxidation numbers, voltaic cells, batteries, corrosion, electrolysis, chemistry of the nonmetals such as hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, halogens, noble gases, transition metals, modern materials, alloys and metallurgy, nuclear chemistry, fission and fusion.
CHEM 210 - Organic Chemistry I (3)
Bonding theories for organic molecules; stereochemistry and conformational analysis; reactions (and mechanisms) of alkyl halides, alkenes, alkynes, aromatics, alcohols, and ethers), organic reaction mechanisms focusing on electrophiles and nucleophiles, and aromaticity.
