CHEM - CHEMISTRY

 

CHEM A103: Survey of Chemistry: 3 CR

Contact Hours:  3 + 0
Prerequisites: MATH A105 with minimum grade of C. Registration Restrictions: CHEM A055 with a minimum grade of C or college preparatory high school chemistry with a minimum grade of C. If the MATH A105 prerequisite is not satisfied, appropriate scores on the SAT or ACT tests or appropriate scores on a UAA-approved placement test such as the Accuplacer Placement test. Course Attributes: UAA GER Natural Sciences Requirement. Special Note: This is an introductory course designed for health science majors and assumes prior knowledge of college preparatory high school chemistry and algebra. CHEM A103L is the laboratory component of this course and requires a separate registration. Survey of topics including: matter, energy, units of measurement, the periodic table, atomic and molecular structure, chemical bonding, radioactivity, oxidation-reduction reactions, solutions involving acids, bases and buffers; and an introduction to organic chemistry with units on functional groups and the chemistry of alkanes, alkenes and alkynes. 

CHEM A103L: Survey of Chemistry Laboratory: 1 CR

Contact Hours:  0 + 3
Prerequisites: (CHEM A103 or concurrent enrollment). Course Attributes: UAA GER Natural Sciences Lab Only. Special Fees.
Special Notes: Students who do not meet the prerequisites for this course may be administratively dropped at the discretion of the faculty. Attendance is mandatory for all chemistry laboratory courses the first week of class. Unless prior arrangements are made with the instructor, any student who does not attend the first scheduled meeting for this lab may be administratively dropped and a student on a waiting list will be added in their place. Any fees resulting from either of these drop procedures or any late registration procedure will be the responsibility of the student. Web courses include two days of face-to-face labs held either in Soldotna or Mat-Su. An introductory chemistry laboratory course with experiments designed to introduce students to the basics of laboratory equipment, data collection, data analysis, and reporting; and to illustrate, augment and apply concepts covered in CHEM A103. 

CHEM A104: Introduction to Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry: 3 CR

Contact Hours:  3 + 0
Prerequisites: CHEM A103 with minimum grade of C. Course Attributes: UAA GER Natural Sciences Requirement. Special Note: CHEM A104L is the lab component of this course and requires a separate registration. This is the second semester course in the sequence for health science majors. The course content includes: common nomenclature of organic compounds, organic functional group reactions, biochemical processes and pathways, biological macromolecules and metabolites.
