My Courses

CHEM-1110 LAB

CHEM-1110 LAB

This laboratory course is a co-requisite for General Chemistry – 1110. One three hour laboratory meeting per week and a total of 15 meetings per semester.

Microbiology Lab Spring 2013

Microbiology Lab Spring 2013

The course, Fundamentals of Microbiology, has a lecture and laboratory component. The lecture focuses on the structure of prokaryotic and eukaryotic microorganisms, interaction between the microbe and the host, and human diseases. Laboratory sessions focus on pure culture techniques, methods of staining and the microscopic, colonial and biochemical identification of saprophytic organisms. Overall Class Learning Outcomes (1) Use analytical and critical thinking skills to approach a research project. (2) Develop basic microbiology laboratory techniques. (3) Differentiate the various types of test used in identifying and classifying pathogenic microorganisms. (4) Use the scientific method to gather, analyze, interpret and present field base research project

General Chemistry 2 Laboratory_CHEM 1210L

General Chemistry 2 Laboratory_CHEM 1210L

This laboratory course accompanies CHEM 1210 and provides practical experience with the concepts discussed in CHEM 1210 such as solution chemistry, chemical kinetics, acids and bases and chemical equilibrium. Semester Fall 2012

Organic Chemistry 1

Organic Chemistry 1

Fundamental concepts of nomenclature, formulae, preparation and properties of organic compounds. Modern electronic and molecular orbital theories are introduced. Laboratory experiments illustrate properties and preparation of organic compounds.

General Chemistry II

General Chemistry II

General Chemistry II is the second half of a full year introduction to the important concepts in college chemistry.  Through lecture and laboratory work, students will learn the mathematical and conceptual models chemists use to explain the behavior of matter.  Key concepts include: intermolecular interactions, solution phase phenomena, phase changes, chemical kinetics, equilibrium, acid/ base reactions, thermodynamics, electrochemistry and a brief introduction to organic chemistry. Students should have a strong math background.
