CHEM 102 A Chemical Perspective

Designed for non-science students. After a coverage of basic principles, a case study approach is used to examine societal problems caused, influenced, or solved by chemistry. Background information and rationale are discussed as well as the chemistry in-volved. Specific topics will vary from year to year depending on the interests of students and staff. The laboratory emphasizes the scientific approach with experiments using consumer products. Lecture/laboratory. Students who have credit for CHEM 121 or CHEM 122 may not take 102 for credit.
