CH 1013 3.0
Introduction to Forensic Chemistry
A non-laboratory course utilizing the inherently fascinating topics of crime and criminal investigations as a context for teaching the fundamental chemical concepts most often covered in an introductory non-majors course. All the standard topics are covered while bringing together the theme of forensic science and the fundamentals of chemistry in ways that are effective and accessible for students. Topics include Introduction to Forensic Chemistry, Evidence Collection and Preservation, Atomic Structure, Periodic Chemical Properties, Chemistry of Bonding, Properties of Solutions, Intermolecular Forces, Drug Chemistry, Arson Investigation, Chemistry of Explosions, Estimating Time of Death, Nuclear Chemistry, Poisons, and Biological Chemistry. HOT, LPS, (VAL prior to 13/FA)
Prerequisite: MT 1303, minimum grade C or appropriate placement score to enter MT 1403

CH 1105 5.0
Intro Chemistry Lec & Lab
An introduction to the basic principles of chemistry, including inorganic, analytical, physical, and organic chemistry. The lab is an introduction to the basic laboratory techniques of chemistry, including an investigation in physical and chemical properties, nomenclature of inorganic and organic compounds, principles of acid-base theory, stoichiometry of chemical equations, and behavior of substances in different phases and as mixtures. Three hours of lecture and four hours laboratory per week. This course is designed for the student with no background in chemistry. HOT, LPS, MAI, (VAL prior to 13/FA)
Prerequisite: MT 1303, minimum grade C or appropriate placement score to enter MT 1403. Pre/Corequisite: SC 1000

CH 1305 5.0

Prerequisite: Minimum grade of "C" in MT 1403 plus CH 1105 or two years of high school chemistry; or appropriate placement score to ente MT 1505 plus CH 1105 or two years of chemistry; or appropriate placement score to enter MT 1605 plus one year of high school chemistry. Pre/Corequisite: SC 1000

CH 1405 5.0
Gen Chemistry II Lec & Lab
A continuation of CH 1305 including the study of chemical equilibria, acid-based chemistry, complex ions, thermodynamics, oxidation-reduction reactions, nuclear chemistry, and qualitative analysis and an introduction to organic chemistry. The laboratory portion of this course will reinforce topics covered in the Gen. Chem II lec. Three hours of lecture and minimum four hours of laboratory per week.
Prerequisite: CH 1305, MT 1403 minimum grade C Pre/Corequisite: SC 1000

CH 2205 5.0
Organic&BioChem Lec & Lab
This course serves as an introduction to the basic principles of organic chemistry, including the identification of different classes of organic compounds and their reactions. The biochemistry portion of the course will involve the static and dynamic aspects of carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids. This will be followed by a discussion of metabolic pathways, energy production, and metobolic regulatory mechanisms. Three hours of lecture and four hours of laboratory per week. This course is the second in a series of two Chemistry courses required for the Biotechnology AAS degree. This course is limited to Biotechnology AAS majors. LPS
