Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Goal
  • Goal 02 - Critical Thinking
    • Gather factual information and apply it to a given problem in a manner that is relevant, clear, comprehensive, and conscious of possible bias in the information selected.
    • Imagine and seek out a variety of possible goals, assumptions, interpretations, or perspectives which can give alternative meanings or solutions to given situations or problems.
    • Analyze the logical connections among the facts, goals, and implicit assumptions relevant to a problem or claim; generate and evaluate implications that follow from them.
  • Goal 03 - Natural Science
    • Demonstrate understanding of scientific theories.
    • Formulate and test hypotheses by performing laboratory, simulation, or field experiments in at least two of the natural science disciplines. One of these experimental components should develop, in greater depth, students' laboratory experience in the collection of data, its statistical and graphical analysis, and an appreciation of its sources of error and uncertainty.
    • Communicate their experimental findings, analyses, and interpretations both orally and in writing.
    • Evaluate societal issues from a natural science perspective, ask questions about the evidence presented, and make informed judgments about science-related topics and policies.
  • Goal 10 - People/Environment
    • Describe the basic institutional arrangements (social, legal, political, economic, religious) that are evolving to deal with environmental and natural resource challenges.
    • Evaluate critically environmental and natural resource issues in light of understandings about interrelationships, ecosystems, and institutions.
    • Propose and assess alternative solutions to environmental problems.
    • Articulate and defend the actions they would take on various environmental issues.

Description
This class will serve as a survey course for non-majors as well as a preparatory course for those wanting to go on to CHEM 1090. The preparatory part of the course covers the basic principles of inorganic and organic chemistry with an emphasis on the structure of the atom, elements and compounds, solution chemistry, stoichiometry, and the mathematical relationships found in chemical problem solving. The survey part of the course deals with everyday topics such as air and water pollution, food additives, drugs, plastics, the environment, and some biochemical topics. The importance of chemical nomenclature for inorganic compounds will be covered. A chemistry background is not required in order to take this course. No credit can be earned if student has earned a grade of C or better in CHEM 1090 Principles of Chemistry I. Hours per week: Lecture-3; Lab-2. MNTC: 2/3/10
