Seven different entry-level sequences of introductory chemistry are offered. Each is designed for a different target audience, usually differentiated by major. Although topical coverage is frequently similar, each sequence is taught at a different level of difficulty, requiring different levels of ability, motivation, and effort, as well as different levels of high school preparation in mathematics and chemistry, on the part of the student. Each course in the regular sequences consists of a large lecture section (or sections), which is split up into several smaller laboratory sections (24 students maximum), which are taught by graduate teaching assistants. Some of the courses (CHEM-111/112) are also split up into smaller discussion sections. The Honors versions of CHEM-111/112 and CHEM-115/120 are taught in small lecture (25 max.) and laboratory (16 max.) section formats. Informal help sessions are available in all courses. Many of the major programs offered by the University of Delaware require one of these sequences. A listing is given at the end of this section. In the following, the courses are described in order of increasing difficulty. Only one course among CHEM-101, 103, and 111 (or CHEM-102, 104, and 112) can count toward graduation requirements.
CHEM 100 is a non-mathematical, non-laboratory course oriented toward students who are not required to take any chemistry courses in their curricula. CHEM-100 emphasizes how chemistry can be employed to help understand environmental phenomena and demonstrates relationships between chemistry and energy, food, toxic and solid waste, air and water pollution, drugs, and other student-generated topics.
This two semester sequence is required by a variety of majors in the following Colleges: Agriculture and Natural Resources, Health Sciences, and Human Services, Education and Public Policy (see majors at the end of this brochure). It is also a natural science elective for a significant number of arts, humanities, and social science majors. Topics covered in CHEM-101 include: stoichiometry, thermochemistry, atomic structure, periodicity, chemical bonding, states of matter, colligative properties, redox, concentration units, and acids/bases. Those dealt with in CHEM-102 involve: kinetics, equilibria, electrochemistry, descriptive inorganic chemistry, introduction to organic chemistry, and nuclear chemistry. One year of high school chemistry is a recommended prerequisite; high school algebra or concurrent enrollment in MATH-010 or a higher mathematics course is strongly recommended for CHEM-101. CHEM-101 is a prerequisite for CHEM-102.
CHEM-106 is also intended (and required) solely for nursing majors. It is a single semester survey of relevant elementary organic and biochemistry, with strong emphasis on the latter.
This two-semester sequence is designed (and required) for science and engineering majors (see list of majors at the end of this brochure). CHEM-103 deals with stoichiometry, gases, liquids, solids, atomic and molecular structure, chemical reactions in solution, and properties of solutions. CHEM-104 covers thermodynamics, kinetics, equilibrium among gases, liquids and solids, equilibrium in solution, acids and bases, electrochemistry, and nuclear chemistry. Descriptive chemistry of representative elements is interspersed throughout both courses. Topics touched on briefly in CHEM-104 include transition elements and types and nomenclature of organic compounds. One year of high school chemistry is a strongly recommended prerequisite, and MATH-114 or a higher level mathematics course is a required corequisite for CHEM-103. CHEM-103 is a prerequisite for CHEM-104.
The content of CHEM-103/104 Honors is similar to CHEM-103/104, but the format used in the Honors version is a combination of active, cooperative, and problem-based learning techniques supplemented by a framework of mini-lectures, rather than the traditional straight lecture. These courses are intended to allow students to take further chemistry courses if desired or needed. Prereq: one year of high school chemistry, highly recommended; concurrent registration in MATH-114 or a higher mathematics course required. CHEM-104H is open to all students with B or better average, overall, and in CHEM-103.
This two-semester sequence is designed (and required) for B.S. chemistry, biochemistry, and chemical engineering majors. Topics covered in CHEM-111 include: states of matter, nomenclature, stoichiometry, concentration units, periodicity, redox reactions, atomic structure, chemical bonding, molecular structure, and valence bond and molecular orbital theories, and symmetry (elements and point groups). Those dealt with in CHEM-112 include: descriptive inorganic chemistry, acids and bases, coordination chemistry, organic chemistry, nuclear chemistry, thermodynamics, equilibria, electrochemistry, and kinetics. One year of high school chemistry or one semester of college chemistry is a required prerequisite, MATH-115 or a higher level mathematics course is a corequisite. CHEM-111 is a prerequisite for CHEM-112.
Lecture & lab, 2 credits. Introduction to the CHEM/BIOC Department and the chemical professions: curricula, subdisciplines, related areas, research, and career opportunities. Social events and mentoring. Group calculator and computer sessions, discussions, and presentations. Experimental techniques and procedures.
CHEM-120 is a required course for B.S. chemistry and biochemistry majors. The theory of analytical chemistry is extended to both qualitative and quantitative chemical analysis with introductory practice in UV-visible spectroscopy, electrochemistry, and separation science. Prerequisites are CHEM-103 or CHEM-111; corequisite is CHEM-112.
CHEM-111/112 honors have the same general course content as CHEM-111/112. CHEM-111H is recommended for students entering Delaware as freshmen in the Honors Program who plan to major in chemistry, biochemistry, or chemical engineering. A year of high school chemistry (B or better) is required. MATH-241 or higher should be taken concurrently. Elementary calculus is used in CHEM-112H. CHEM-112H is open to all students with B or better average, overall, and in CHEM-111. CHEM-111H and CHEM-112H are not required in any major.
CHEM-120H is open to all students with B or better average, overall. CHEM-120H is not required in any major.
Where choices are given by the major, the lowest level course is shown as the required course.
