Introduces the principles and applications of chemistry. Topics include stoichiometry, chemical equations and reactions, chemical bonding, states of matter, thermochemistry, chemical kinetics, equilibrium, acids and bases, electrochemistry, nuclear chemistry, and descriptive chemistry of the elements. For students planning to elect further courses in chemistry, physics, and biology and to fulfill prehealth prerequisites. CHEM 1411 may be taken concurrently or after completing 1410. Drop/withdrawal from CHEM 1410, requires drop/withdrawal from CHEM 1411. A grade of C- or higher is required to take CHEM 1420.
Provide science graduate students interested in an academic career with training in teaching at the postsecondary level. Specifically, the course is intended to introduce instructional practices that have been empirically demonstrated to enhance students' learning & attitudes toward science & their associated learning theories. To provide students with opportunity to develop teaching philosophy & implement, & receive feedback on a unit & lecture.
Students will conduct research in chemical education using appropriate methods and instrumentation.
