Welcome to the Chemistry Home Page for Clatsop Community College.  The college offers a wide range of chemistry courses.  We even offer forensic science (CSI rocks!) and Chemistry in Art for non science majors.   If you have any questions concerning a chemistry course, please contact Heather Walsh by phone at  338-2415 or by E -mail hwalsh@clatsopcc.edu .  Visit my home page .  If you are on campus, feel free to stop by Heather's office in Columbia Hall room 305.

 


CH120 and CH120L

 

 

CHEMISTRY IN ART

4 Credits

Prerequisite: MTH 065

Offered: Fall 2011, Fall 2012

 

This is a BEGINNING course in chemistry.  No previous knowledge of chemistry is necessary to take this course.  Topics will include atoms, molecules, elements, compounds, the periodic table, chemical bonding and reactions, acids and bases, oxidation and reduction, and polymers.  However, all of these concepts will be described as we explore the chemistry of art media — media such as paints, dyes, metals, alloys, ceramics, glass, plastics, paper, fibers, and photographic materials.

 

 

 

GS 111 and GS 111L
INTRODUCTION TO FORENSIC SCIENCE
4 Credits

Prerequisite: MTH 065

Offered: SPRING 2011, 2012


Students learn basic forensic science principles and techniques,
including identifying, locating, collecting, preserving and testing
trace samples. Students learn and apply the scientific method in
interpreting data. 

 

We learn to fingerprint, recover serial numbers, DNA testing, ballistics, blood typing and identification, hair and fiber characterization, and handwriting analysis.  We use our knowledge to discover "who dunnit".

 


CH 104 and CH 104L
INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY I

4 Credits

Prerequisite: Mastery of basic arithmetic, percentages, ratios and

proportions, and conversions (equivalent to a "C" grade in MTH 70).

 

Offered: SUMMER 2010, 2011; FALL
2010, 2011; WINTER 2011, 2012


Students learn basic chemical and physical principles by exploring
introductory chemistry topics such as of elements, compounds,
chemical reactions, solutions, acids, and bases in this general
education course. Students investigate how chemistry is relevant to
societal issues or technological advancements. Note: This course
is designed for students with no prior chemistry course work and
emphasizes applications to nursing and related areas. The two quarter
series is good preparation for CH 221 General Chemistry.




CH 105 and CH 105L
INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY II

4 Credits

Prerequisite: CH 104 and 104L and 105 and 105L or equivalent
with a grade of "C" or better.

 

Offered:  WINTER 2011, 2012; SPRING 2011, 2012

 

Building upon knowledge mastered in Chemistry 104, students
investigate the chemical concepts of atomic theory, nomenclature,
bonding, gases, liquids, solids, and radioactivity. Students will apply
the methods of science through experiments and learn to communicate
scientific and quantitative information. This is the second term of a
two-quarter introductory general chemistry series. 



CH 106 and CH 106L
INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY - BIOCHEMISTRY

4 Credits

Prerequisite:  A "C" or better in Chemistry 105

 

Offered:  SPRING 2011, 2012

 

Students master basic knowledge of the fundamental principles
of biochemistry including organic chemistry and three classes of
biomolecules: carbohydrates, lipids (fats and oils), and proteins. This
course is designed to introduce students to the molecular design of
life.  

 



CH 221 and CH 221L
GENERAL CHEMISTRY I

5 Credits

Prerequisite: Two years high school algebra or equivalent (MTH 95)
and mastery of the principles of high school chemistry or completion
of CH 105 and 105L, and instructor approval.

 

Offered:  FALL 2010, 2011

 

Students understand and apply the principles that govern the
behavior of matter as a foundation for further college study in the
sciences and engineering. Students will learn and demonstrate both
qualitative and quantitative understanding of stoichiometry, periodicity,
atomic and molecular structure, formulas and equations, chemical
bonding, thermodynamics, and chemical reactions. Data acquisition
and handling by computers is stressed. Service course covering
the principles of chemistry for the student who already has a good
knowledge of high school chemistry. Must be taken in sequence.
 



CH 222 and CH 222L
GENERAL CHEMISTRY II

5 Credits

Prerequisite: CH 221 and 221L with a "C" grade or
better and instructor approval.

 

Offered :  WINTER 2011, 2012

Students further understand and apply the principles that govern
the behavior of matter as a foundation for further college study in
the sciences and engineering. Students will learn and demonstrate
both qualitative and quantitative understanding of gases, acids and
bases, kinetic molecular theory, equilibrium, and solubility. Data
acquisition and handling by computers is stressed. Service course
covering the principles of chemistry for the student who already
has a good knowledge of high school chemistry. Must be taken
in sequence.  
 



CH 223 and CH 223L
GENERAL CHEMISTRY III

5 Credits

Prerequisite: CH222 and 222L with a "C" grade or better and instructor approval.

 

Offered: SPRING 2011, 2012


Students further understand and apply the principles that govern
the behavior of matter as a foundation for further college study in
the sciences and engineering. Students will learn and demonstrate
both qualitative and quantitative understanding of thermodynamics,
nuclear reactions, electrochemistry, organic chemistry (an
introduction), environmental chemistry, and chemistry of volcanoes.
Data acquisition and handling by computers is stressed. Service
course covering the principles of chemistry for the student who already
has a good knowledge of high school chemistry.
