CHE 115 - General, Organic and Introduction to Biochemistry

4 credit hours - Three hours of lecture and three hours of laboratory weekly; one term.
This course meets the Biological and Physical Sciences General Education Requirement.

Survey the principles of general, organic, and biochemistry and how they relate to biological systems. Topics include atomic theory, nuclear chemistry, nomenclature, bonding theory, states of matter, mixtures, acid-base chemistry, stoichiometry, chemical reactions involving organic molecules, and biologically important molecules. Laboratory work includes basic techniques and principles as well as quantitative measurements by titration and stoichiometry. This course is intended for students transferring to a health professions program requiring only one term of chemistry. Students transferring to an allied health program requiring two terms of chemistry should take CHE 111  and CHE 113 . Students who are unsure of their transfer goals should take CHE 111 . This course is also appropriate for the liberal arts major with a strong interest in chemistry. Lab fee $40.

Prerequisite(s): Eligibility for ENG 101 /ENG 101A  and MAT 137 

Note: Credit will not be given for both CHE 115 and either CHE 111  or CHE 113  or CHE 213 . This course is not to be used as a prerequisite for CHE 111 , CHE 112 , CHE 113 , CHE 213  or CHE 214 .
