CHEM 1120 Document Transcript

  • 1. Metropolitan Community College COURSE OUTLINE FORM (Page 1 of 5) Course Title: Chemistry for the Health Sciences I Course Prefix & No.: LEC: LAB: Credit Hours: CHEM 1120 2.5 1.5 3 COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course is designed to give students entering a health career fundamental knowledge of those areas of chemistry that relate to physiological principles. This couse will cover topics that include solutions; acids, bases and buffers; nuclear chemistry; equilibrium and an introduction to organic chemistry. The course material will be presented in lecture form to introduce the topics/information and the concepts will be reinforced through laboratory experiments. CHEM 1120 will be taught during the first part of the quarter to be followed immediately by CHEM 1130. Both CHEM 1120/1130 must be completed for transfer as a four-semester credit chemistry course for baccalaureate work. This course includes both lecture and lab components. COURSE PREREQUISITE (S): CHEM 1010 or CHEM 121C. Co-requisite: MATH 1310 (must be taken at same time or completed earlier) RATIONALE: Although this course provides a broad base of topics that are of interest to many students, it is designed to give students pursuing one of the health careers a comprehensive study of those aspects of chemistry that interrelate with physiological principles and are particularly relevant to the health careers.
