Prerequisite(s): CHEM 110 or one year of high school chemistry,  Transfer Status: CSU/UC  51 hours Lecture / 102 hours Lab  This course introduces students to the basic principles of chemistry with a quantitative emphasis. Topics include atomic theory, chemical bonding, molecular geometry, chemical reactions, stoichiometry, gases, thermochemistry, intermolecular forces and solutions. This is the first semester of a oneyear course in chemistry intended for majors in the natural sciences (chemistry, biochemistry, biology, physics, premedicine), mathematics, and engineering. The twosemester sequence of CHEM 1 and CHEM 2 provides the basic chemical background needed for further investigations into our physical environment. (CID CHEM 110/120S).Graded Only. 

Prerequisite(s): CHEM 1  Transfer Status: CSU/UC  51 hours Lecture / 102 hours Lab  This course is a continuation of CHEM 1, General Chemistry I. Topics include chemical kinetics and equilibrium, acidbase and solubility equilibria, thermodynamics, oxidationreduction, electrochemistry, coordination compounds, nuclear chemistry, introduction to organic chemistry and qualitative analysis. This is the second semester of a oneyear course in chemistry intended for majors in the natural sciences (chemistry, biochemistry, biology, physics, premedicine), mathematics, and engineering. The twosemester sequence of CHEM 1 and CHEM 2 provides the basic chemical background needed for further investigations into our physical environment. (CID CHEM 120S) (CID CHEM 120S = CHEM 1 and CHEM 2). Graded Only. 

Prerequisite(s): CHEM 2  Recommended Prep: Reading Level IV; English Level IV  Transfer Status: CSU/UC  51 hours Lecture / 102 hours Lab  This is the first course in a yearlong study of organic chemistry designed for students majoring in chemistry and related science disciplines. It covers fundamental principles of organic chemistry including structure, nomenclature, conformational analysis and stereochemistry. The physical properties, reactions and reaction mechanisms of alkanes, alkyl halides, alcohols, ethers, alkenes, alkynes, and allylic systems are studied. Infrared spectroscopy and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy are discussed in detail. (CID CHEM 150 & 160S).Graded Only. 

Prerequisite(s): MATH 20 and MATH 26 or collegelevel precalculus  Recommended Prep: Four years of high school collegepreparatory Mathematics and Reading Level IV  Transfer Status: CSU/UC  85 hours Lecture  A first course in differential and integral calculus of a single variable: functions, limits and continuity, techniques and applications of differentiation and integration, Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Primarily for Science, Technology, Engineering & Math Majors. (CID MATH 210). 

Prerequisite(s): MATH 30  Recommended Prep: Reading Level IV  Transfer Status: CSU/UC  68 hours Lecture  A second course in differential and integral calculus of a single variable: integration; techniques of integration, infinite sequences and series, polar and parametric equations, applications of integration. Primarily for Science, Technology, Engineering & Math Majors. For students who have no knowledge of or access to a symbolic math program (such as MAPLE, Mathematica, Derive, or the TI89,) the mathematics department offers instruction in MAPLE (MATH 31A), which may be taken concurrently with MATH 31. (CID MATH 220). 

Prerequisite(s): MATH 31  Transfer Status: CSU/UC  68 hours Lecture  Vector valued functions, calculus of functions of more than one variable, partial derivatives, multiple integration, Green’s Theorem, Stokes’ Theorem, divergence theorem. (CID MATH 230). 

Prerequisite(s): MATH 30  Recommended Prep: High school physics  Transfer Status: CSU/UC  51 hours Lecture / 51 hours Lab  This course, intended for students majoring in physical sciences and engineering, is part of a threesemester course whose contents may be offered in other sequences or combinations. Core topics include an introduction to kinematics, dynamics, work and energy, momentum, gravitation and simple harmonic motion. It is highly recommended that students also enroll in PHYS 51. (CID PHYS 205).Graded Only. 

Prerequisite(s): PHYS 41, MATH 31  Transfer Status: CSU/UC  51 hours Lecture / 51 hours Lab  This course, intended for students majoring in physical sciences and engineering, is part of a threesemester course whose contents may be offered in other sequences or combinations. Core topics include electrostatics, magnetism, DC and AC circuits, and Maxwell’s equations. It is highly recommended that students also enroll in PHYS 52. (CID PHYS 210).Graded Only. 

Prerequisite(s): PHYS 41, MATH 31  Transfer Status: CSU/UC  51 hours Lecture / 51 hours Lab  This course, intended for students majoring in physical sciences and engineering, is part of a threesemester course whose contents may be offered in other sequences or combinations. Core topics include optics and modern physics. (CID PHYS 43).Graded Only.
