Chemistry (CHM)

CHM 0960 — Introductory Science
3 Credit hours  

Emphasizes basic chemistry and biology as they relate to health sciences, for those students planning to enter the Allied Health or Nursing programs, who feel they need to improve their skills. This course does not count toward graduation requirements. "C" grade policy applies for a student in a health program. This is a credit course and will be counted in student's grade point average; however, it will not count towards graduation requirements or as an elective substitute.

CHM 1010 — General Chemistry I
4 Credit hours  

Introduces the fundamental principles of chemistry, including measurement and calculation; chemical stoichiometry; the properties of gases; atomic and molecular structure; bonding; thermochemistry; and periodic properties.
Prerequisites: MTH 1370.

CHM 1110 — Introductory General Chemistry
4 Credit hours  

Provides a foundation in basic principles of general chemistry. Topics include methods of measurement, temperature and heat, atomic structure, nuclear chemistry, bonding, nomenclature, gas laws, chemical reactions, stoichiometry, solutions, acid-base chemistry and chemical equilibrium.
Transfer: TM
Prerequisites: IMT 1911 or MTH 0903 (with a grade of "C" or better).

CHM 1120 — Introductory Organic and Biochemistry
4 Credit hours  

Introduces the fundamentals of organic chemistry and biochemistry, including laboratory applications. The structures and properties of organic compounds classified by functional group, carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids, proteins, and nucleic acids are presented. Students will develop a basic knowledge of organic nomenclature and reaction classes. Relationships between structure, properties, and functionality of compounds are discussed with emphasis on their application in health sciences. This course presumes a foundational knowledge of inorganic chemistry. The "C" grade policy applies for a degree in a health program.
Prerequisites: CHM 0960 with a "C" or better, or CHM 1010, or CHM 1110, or placement.

CHM 1210 — General Chemistry II
4 Credit hours  

Designed to provide a foundation in the basic principles of general chemistry. Topics include intermolecular forces, colligative properties, Chemical kinetics, equilibria, acid-base properties, thermodynamics and electrochemistry.
Prerequisites: CHM 1110.
