CHEM 100 - Chemical Science (4)


This course is designed primarily for future elementary school teachers. It introduces the student to the basic concepts of chemistry including atoms, radioactivity, bonding, chemical equations, solutions, acids and bases, and some aspects of organic and biochemistry. The latter part of the course is devoted to the study of chemical science as it applies to the elementary school: mini lectures, demonstrations, experiments, games, textbook and journal reviews are presented by the students. The lab portion emphasizes learning by discovery and by student-designed (or modified) experiments.
