UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS

in contemporary biology to be selected. Report

required.

(Lab Fee $75.)

CH151 General Chemistry I (4)

A course covering fundamental chemical principles

and theories. Topics include properties and states

of matter, development of atomic theory, atomic

structure and periodicity, chemical bonding,

stoichiometry, inorganic nomenclature, gas laws,

and chemical reactions. 3 hours lecture, 3 hours

laboratory. (Lab fee $75.)

CH152 General Chemistry II (4)

A continuation of CH151: Introduction to solution

equilibria, electrochemistry, kinetics, chemical

thermodynamics, organic chemistry, nuclear

chemistry and environmental chemical applications. 3

hours lecture, 3 hours laboratory

. Prerequisite: CH151

or its equivalent with a grade of C or better.

(Lab fee $75.)

CH351 Organic Chemistry I (4)

Introduction to the chemistry of carbon-containing

compounds. Particular emphasis is given to Lewis

acid-base theory and structure-reactivity relationships

as predictive tools. The chemistry of alkanes, alkenes,

alkynes, stereochemistry, substitution and elimination

reactions, radicals, alcohols, and ethers is discussed. 3

hours lecture, 3 hours laboratory.

Prerequisite: CH152

or its equivalent with a C or better.

(Lab fee $75.)

CH352 Organic Chemistry II (4)

A continuation of CH351: conjugated systems,

aromatic compounds and their reactions,

spectroscopy, synthesis, and reactions of carbonyl

compounds, including carboxylic acids, esters,

amides, beta-dicarbonyl compounds, phenols, amines

and carbohydrates. The philosophy of organic

synthesis and a brief introduction to natural products

and biochemistry are included. 3 hours lecture, 3

hours laboratory.

Prerequisite: CH351 or its equivalent

with a grade of C or better.

(Lab fee $75.)

CH461 Biochemistry (4)

Investigates proteins (structures and functions),

enzymes (kinetics and regulation), biological

oxidation-reduction, and thermodynamics of living

systems. Particular attention is given to the integration

and regulation of intermediary metabolism. In the

laboratory students learn the theory underlying many

common biochemical techniques. Students also gain

practical, hands-on experience for several of these

techniques, such as gel filtration chromatography, ion

exchange chromatography, affinity chromatography,

thin-layer chromatography techniques in enzyme

kinetic assays, determination of the binding

specificity of proteins, protein fingerprinting, SDS-

PAGE and molecular weight determination, agarose

gel electrophoresis, peptide mapping, and Western

blotting. 3 hours lecture and 3 hours lab.

Concurrent

laboratory registration required. Prerequisite: CH352.

(Lab

Fee $75.)

PS222 Earth Science for Elementary Teachers (2)

A general survey of the Earth as a planet in the

Solar System, its interior, and a study of its crust

and atmosphere. This course is designed to meet

the requirements of liberal studies students seeking

a teaching credential. 2 hours lecture.

Prerequisite:

approval of instructor or Teacher Education Department.

PS231 Physical Science for Elementary Teachers

(2)

A survey of topics from the physical sciences

including areas of study relating to modern problems

and advances in science and technology. This course

is designed to meet the requirements of liberal studies

students seeking a teaching credential. 2 hours lecture.

Prerequisite: approval of instructor or Teacher Education

Department.

PS242 Earth Science (4)

A survey of the Earth as a planet in the Solar System

and its interior and a detailed study of its crust and

atmosphere to serve as a broad-based course for

liberal studies majors. Fulfills the general education

laboratory science requirement. 3 hours lecture, 3

hours laboratory. (Lab fee $75.)

PS251 General Physics I (4)

A calculus-based introduction to classical physics

including Newton’s laws of motion, work, energy,

power, conservation laws, and classical waves.

3 hours lecture, 3 hours laboratory.

Prerequisite:

MA121 (may be taken concurrently)

. (Lab fee $75.)

PS252 General Physics II (4)

A continuation of PS251. Topics include electricity,
