CHEM 111-01 Chemistry in the Kitchen
Instructor: Christine O'Neill
Course Description:
Do you know how much chemistry takes place in your kitchen? Why are some recipes altered for cooking at high altitudes? Can you substitute baking soda for baking powder in a recipe? This course will provide answers to these questions, by introducing you to chemical concepts such as: thermochemistry, electromagnetic radiation, chemical bonding, acid and bases, and intermolecular forces. These concepts will be illustrated by examining the foods you eat and the cooking methods used to prepare them. In the chemistry laboratory, the students will continue their study of these concepts and their applications.

CHEM 141-01 Accelerated General Chemistry with Lab
Instructor: Rebecca Connor
Course Description:
A one-semester introductory course for students who are especially well-prepared for general chemistry, replacing CHEM 131, 132 as a prerequisite for more advanced courses in the major. Topics include atomic structure, chemical bonding, thermodynamics, kinetics, equilibrium, electrochemistry, acid/base chemistry, solubility, and transition metal chemistry. The laboratory experiments will relate directly to topics covered in lecture, and will include statistical analysis of data, molecular modeling, instrumental methods of analysis, and quantitative analytical and inorganic chemistry. Admittance into this course is based on a placement exam. Three hours of classroom and three hours of laboratory per week. This course fulfills either the DIV III lab science distribution requirement or QR graduation requirement.
