CHE 107 - General Chemistry

Prerequisites: Completion of all ENG, RDG and MAT remediation requirements.

Description: General Chemistry, CHE 107, is a one-semester laboratory course in basic chemistry. Students are introduced to the fundamental concepts of physics and mathematics that are required to understand chemistry. The course then follows a semi-traditional introduction to chemistry: relative atomic/molecular weights, the mole concept, solution chemistry, stoichiometry, gas laws, and atomic structure. This course satisfies the prerequisite requirements for CHE 151. (3 lecture, 3 laboratory hours) Laboratory fee applies. SUNY GEN ED-GLAB; NCC GEN ED-LSCI Offered: Fall, Spring, Summer

CHE 200 - Introductory Organic Chemistry

Prerequisites: CHE 131 or permission of Chairperson.

Description: CHE 200 offers a basic introduction to the world of organic chemistry. A functional group approach, emphasizing structure, nomenclature, preparation and reactivity is used. While the approach parallels CHE 201 to an extent, it is significantly less demanding and thus cannot be substituted for the higher level course. Nevertheless, many science and pre-professional students with weak backgrounds in chemistry have found CHE 200 helpful as a refresher course before taking CHE 201 - CHE 202.
