NATURAL SCIENCE DEPARTMENT
OF CHEMISTRY I
Prerequisite: Math 115 | Lecture: 3 hours, lab 3 hours and discussion
1 hour. UC:CSU 5 UNITS
Course emphasizes the principles of chemistry for general education and
preparation for entering the nursing and other health care professions.
It may be followed by Chemistry 52. This is primarily for non-science
majors. Acceptable for credit: UCLA, CSUN: Chemistry 103 + 103L or Chemistry
105 + 110L
OF COLLEGE CHEMISTRY II
Prerequisite: Chem 51 or Chem 65| Lecture: 3 hours, lab 3 hours. UC:CSU 4 UNITS
Note: Not open for credit to students who have credit in Chem 102. A continuation
of Chemistry 51 and the second half of the one year sequence of chemistry
required in Health Sciences and Family Environmental Sciences majors.
Properties of aqueous solutions, and base chemistry, introductory organic
chemistry with emphasis on current environmental issues. Acceptable for
credit: CSUN: Chemistry 104 + 104L.
Prerequisite: Math 125
Lecture: 3 hours, lab 3 hours. UC:CSU 4 UNITS
This course is designed for both the non-science and the science majors;
it meets the General Education Requirements for Natural Sciences and it
also serves as a preparatory course for Chemistry 101. The course covers
the principles of general chemistry at an elementary level with special
emphasis on the application of chemical principles to everyday life and
the development of a basic chemical vocabulary. Acceptable for credit:
UCLA, CSUN: Chemistry 105 + Chemistry 110L or Chemistry 103 + 103L
(CAN CHEM 2;CANCHEM SEQ A = CHEM 101 + 102)
Prerequisites: Chem 65 and Math 125 | Lecture: 3 hours, lab 5 hours,
and discussion 1 hour.
UC:CSU 5 UNITS
The course covers fundamental chemical principles and theories with special
emphasis on stoichiometry, atomic structure, periodic table, chemical
bonding, solutions, acids and bases, oxidation- reduction, and proprieties
of gases. Acceptable for credit: UCLA, CSUN: Chemistry 101 + 101L.
(CAN CHEM 4;CANCHEM SEQ A = CHEM 101 + 102)
Prerequisite: Chem 101 | Lecture: 3 hours, lab 6 hours. UC:CSU 5 UNITS
Includes solutions, equilibria involving weak electrolytes, chemical kinetics,
electrochemistry, nuclear chemistry systematic descriptive chemistry of
typical metals and a brief introduction to carbon and its compounds. Lab
work consists of qualitative analysis for typical anions and cations,
alloys and simple salts. Acceptable for credit: UCLA, CSUN: Chemistry
102 + 102L.
