CHM 142 - General, Organic, and Biochemistry II

CHM 142 is a continuation of CHM 141 General, Organic, and Biochemistry I.  It is the second course of a two semester sequence in general, organic, and biochemistry.  This course will offer an overview of organic and biological chemistry primarily intended for health science students but appropriate for others looking for an introduction to General, Organic, and Biochemistry topics.  Applications include consumer products, living systems, food and metabolism.

Credits: 4
3 Class Hours, 3 Laboratory Hours
Course Profile
Learning Outcomes of the Course:

Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate scientific reasoning applied to the natural world, including:
    -   an understanding of the methods scientists use to explore natural phenomena, including observation, hypothesis development, measurement and data collection, experimentation, evaluation of evidence, and employment of data analysis or mathematical modeling and
    -   the application of scientific data, concepts, and models in the context of chemistry, a natural science.
  2. Identify basic chemical and physical properties of organic compounds, including the prediction of the physical states and boiling point trends of simple organic compounds and the effects of simple organic compounds on living things.
  3. Determine the formulas and names of simple organic compounds and complete basic organic chemical equations.
  4. Identify and differentiate stereoisomers and recognize their applications in biochemistry.
  5. Interpret the structures and describe the basic chemistry of carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and enzymes, nucleic acids, hormones, and vitamins.
