CHEM0101A-W13

CRN: 11321

World of Chemistry

World of Chemistry
The goal of this course is to investigate how chemistry impacts our daily lives in both common and extraordinary ways. After learning basic concepts of elements, atoms, and molecules, we will explore topics in energy (petroleum, nuclear, batteries, and solar), environment (global warming and the ozone hole), health (food and drug), and art (color, conservation, and forgery detection). We will perform occasional hands-on activities.

CHEM0241A-W13

CRN: 10065

Organic Chemistry I

Organic Chemistry I
This course is an introduction to the structure and reactivity of organic molecules. Topics covered include chemical nomenclature, bonding, structure, acid-base relationships, mechanistically simple reactions, and theoretical aspects of structure determination. Laboratory exercises include hands-on introductions to techniques such as distillation, crystallization, chromatography, polarimetry, and modern spectroscopic techniques such as NMR and IR. (Students must have received a grade of B- or better in CHEM 0104 or 0107)

Cavemen Chemistry

Caveman Chemistry
Beginning with our ancestors’ first control of fire more than a million years ago and sparked by numerous chance discoveries since, humans have transformed mundane natural materials into incredibly useful goods. Mud into ceramics! Stone into bronze tools! Using Caveman Chemistry as our guide, we will create a sampling of our own primitive goods using low-tech methods as we explore the chemistry and significance of these seemingly magical transformations. Not open to students who have taken FYSE 1329.

Science and Public Policy

Science and Public Policy in the U.S.A.
Issues of global climate change, nanotechnology, immunization, genomic sequencing, and alternative energy have become hot topics in scientific policy debates. In this course we will explore how science and technology influence, and are in turn influenced by, U.S. public policy. We will analyze scientific policies pre-and post-WWII, while working to understand the impact of these policies on the development of science as well as that of the nation. At the end of the course we will divide into groups and debate current scientific policies such as current funding for NASA, state mandated immunization, and clean energy incentives.
