Available courses

Students in this course will master a core of basic concepts through which most of chemistry can be understood. CHEM143  is the second in a two-semester general chemistry sequence.  The chemical knowledge and skills that you gain in these courses will prepare you for a variety of advanced courses in many subjects.  The problem-solving and learning skill that you will develop in these and similar courses are likely to help you throughout your career. This class will consist of three hours of lecture and two hours of lab per week.  Chem 144, College Chemistry II- Lab is a required co-requisite

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

a.  learn the scientific method and apply it in lab exercises.

b.  define and understand terms common to chemistry.

c.  Describe principles of chemical reactivity mathematically and conceptually.

d.  Describe characteristics of gases, liquids and solids mathematically and conceptually.

e   Describe principle of chemical equilibrium mathematically and conceptually.

f.   Describe principles of acidity and basicity mathematically and conceptually.

g.  Demonstrate a basic understanding of organic chemistry principles


Indigenous Research Methodologies and Methods  focuses on the cultural aspect of Indigenous research methods as they relate to all sciences. Included are current theories of Indigenous research, explorations of the purpose of Indigenous research, both historical and contemporary; roles and responsibilities of an Indigenous researcher; oral and recorded traditions and sources of information; and other important issues that face Indigenous researchers, both now and in future. To this end, the following questions are emphasized: to whom does the research belong? Whose benefit and interests are at stake? Who is the researcher and what is their relationship to the research community? Who carries out the research? Who controls and disseminates the results?


A project-based approach will be used. Topics include:formulas and functions, charts, Web queries, what-if analysis, data tables, worksheet as a database, working with multiple worksheets and workbooks, solver, goal seeking, macros and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), formula auditing, data validation, importing data, pivot charts, and pivot tables.

First in a two class sequence designed to teach about Geographic Information Systems (GIS).  Main topics include: Working Definition of a Geographic Information System, History of GIS, The nature of Geographical Data.  Geographic Data models, Components of ArcGIS,  Working with map Attributes.  Building maps from data layers. GIS analysis via queries, spatial joins, Map overlay and Geoprocessing.  Class will meet 3 hours per week Mondays and Wednesdays.


An algebra based survey course presenting the fundamental laws and phenomena that underlie nature.  Classical and modern physics concepts covered include:  mechanics, motion, gravitation, heat, energy, thermodynamics,


Students in this course will master a core of basic concepts through which most of chemistry can be understood. CHMY 141 is the first in a two-semester general chemistry sequence.  The chemical knowledge and skills that you gain in these courses will prepare you for a variety of advanced courses in many subjects.  The problem-solving and learning skill that you will develop in these and similar courses are likely to help you throughout your career. This class will consist of three hours of lecture and two hours of lab per week. The Laboratory course has a separate number; CHMY 142.


 

Intro to Botany examines the structure, function, evolutionary and ecological relationships of plants.  The laboratory provides students the opportunity to study the structure, taxonomy, and physiology of plants, Upon learning structure, students will learn the use of taxonomic keys for identification of local plants

This course addresses the fundamental concepts of computerized database management and database design with emphasis on the relational model.  It includes hands-on experience using Microsoft Access in creating databases, forms, reports and queries.  Additional topics included are Entity Relationship Modeling, normalization and SQL.
