CHEM 100 F Chemistry for Daily Life 4 Units

54 hours lecture and 54 hours lab per term. This course focuses on the practical significance of the fundamental concepts of chemistry in the context of societal, political and economic issues that impact our world. Units may include, but are not limited to the following: the chemistry of the atmosphere and water, fission and fusion, energy, chemistry, and society, pharmaceutical, new materials, the chemistry of nutrition and agriculture. Student participation is stressed individually and in groups, through written and oral assignments. The lab provides hands-on experience with chemical phenomena. This course is designed for the non-science major seeking a lab science. (CSU) (UC Credit Limitation; no credit if taken after CHEM 111AF) AA GE, CSU GE, IGETC
