2016-17 Course Catalog - 99


CHEM 100 (3 credits)
Conceptual Chemistry

This course explores inorganic chemistry principles at the
conceptual level. Intermittent in-class laboratory activities
reinforce theoretical content. Special emphasis is placed on
relating chemical principles to industry, the environment, and
everyday events. Topics covered include the atomic structure
and classification of matter, the periodicity of elements and
their properties, intramolecular and intermolecular bonding,
chemical reactions including oxidation-reduction reactions,
thermochemistry, solutions, acids/bases, water chemistry, gases,
and nuclear chemistry.

CHEM 110 (4 credits)
General Chemistry I

This course explores the fundamental principles of inorganic
chemistry. Laboratory activities reinforce classroom theoretical
content. Topics covered include the physical states and properties
of matter, scientific measurement, problem solving, periodicity
of elements, atomic structure, early and modern atomic theory,
electron configuration, nomenclature, chemical composition,
chemical equations and stoichiometry, chemical reactions,
thermochemistry, chemical bonding and molecular geometry, gas
laws, and solutions.
Prerequisites: MATH 137 with a minimum grade of "C" or
instructor permission

PHYS 101 (3 credits)
How Things Work

This is an introductory physics course that focuses on the ideas,
concepts, and engineering behind everyday objects. The history of
these objects and their relationships to physical laws are examined.
Enrolled students create simple projects to demonstrate their
understanding. Only basic mathematical skills are required.

PHYS 106 (3 credits)
Physics for Everyday Life

Brief overview of physics. Includes motion, work, power, energy,
and properties of matter, sound, and light. Electrodynamics,
atomic physics, and nuclear physics are also discussed. Basic
mathematical and algebra skills utilized.

PHYS 113 (3 credits)
Statics

Elementary, analytical, and practical approach to the principles
and physical concepts of statics. Topics include force systems,
principles of equilibrium, structural analysis of trusses and frames,
friction, centroids, and moments of inertia.
Prerequisites: MATH 137 and MATH 141 or instructor permission.

PHYS 213 (4 credits)
General Physics I

This course is a four-credit, algebra-based physics course in which
one of the credits is devoted toward lab work. The course is an indepth study of statics, kinematics, dynamics, work, power, energy,
and the properties of matter.
Prerequisites: MATH 137 and MATH 141 or instructor permission.

SCI 107 (3 credits)
Environmental Science

This course is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary overview of
environmental issues and the integral role humans play in shaping
our natural surroundings. Topics covered include energy flow,
biotic and abiotic factors in ecosystems, environmental law,
terrestrial biomes and aquatic ecosystems, population dynamics,
renewable and nonrenewable resources, fossil fuels and alternative
energy sources, water resources and pollution, air pollution, ozone
depletion, climate change, waste disposal, land and food resources,
conservation, and sustainable living.
Prerequisite: ENG 106 or permission of the instructor

SOCIAL SCIENCES: ANTHROPOLOGY (ANT);
BUSINESS (BUSN);
ECONOMICS
(ECON); PSYCHOLOGY (PSY); AND
SOCIOLOGY (SOC)
BUSN 106 (3 credits)
Small Business Management

Focuses on the world of small business, including getting involved
as an entrepreneur; selecting business opportunities; and keeping
the business afloat.

ECON 211 (3 credits)
Principles of Economics

The nature and methodology of economics are discussed. Topics
include mixed capitalism and market economy; national income
and employment theory; economics of fiscal policy; and money,
banking, and the Federal Reserve System.

PSY 116 (3 credits)
Introduction to Psychology

Students learn the major specialties of the field and assumptions
upon which they are based. Techniques used by psychologists are
discussed.

SOC 106 (3 credits)
Principles of Sociology

Provides a systematic interpretation of major elements of
sociology, including social dynamics, deviant behavior, social and
cultural change, and developing major social trends.

SOC 121 (3 credits)
Critical Thinking

Provides an introduction to critical reading, writing, and thinking.
Encourages students to pose questions at appropriate times and
to have a generally critical attitude toward advertising and other
aspects of popular culture.

SOC 206 (3 credits)
Sociology of Deviant Behavior

Deviant social behavior are discussed. Topics include
development of deviant individual's personality; deviant careers;
conflicts between the deviant's and the normative social world.
Social techniques and patterns used to resolve such conflicts are
also covered.
