CHE100 - Introduction to Chemistry
Credits: 3

Catalog Description: An introduction to general, organic and biological chemistry, with an emphasis on applications that are relevant to students pursuing health science programs. Topics include measurement, atomic and molecular structure, chemical and physical bonding, gas properties, chemical reactions, acid/base chemistry, organic molecule structure and functional groups, and common groups of biological molecules (carbohydrates, lipids and proteins). Two class hours, two lab hours. Not open to students with credits in, BIO 115, BIO 116, CHE 101 or PHY 131. Prerequisite: completion of the Genesee Community College math proficiency.

CHE101 - General Chemistry 1
Credits: 4

Catalog Description: Introduces the fundamental principles of chemistry including measurements (English and metric systems), ionic and covalent compounds (names and formulas), stoichiometry (mass-mol relations), reactions in aqueous solutions, gases and their properties, electron configuration and periodicity, chemical bonding and molecular geometry, thermochemistry, and principles of organic chemistry. Recommended for students pursuing careers in science, engineering, health and/or technology fields. A solid math/algebra background is expected. Three class hours, three lab hours. Prerequisites: CHE 100 with a grade of ā€˜Cā€™ or higher or Regents Chemistry with a Regents exam score 75 or higher or MAT 102 or higher. The math requirements may be taken concurrently with CHE 101. (Note: MAT 125, MAT 129, MAT 130, and MAT 131 are not accepted as math prerequisites.)
