-or-
A continuation of organic chemistry started in CHEM 305 including a study of the interpretation of infrared spectroscopy proton and carbon NMR UV-visible spectroscopy and mass spectrometry. The lab will be an introduction to chemical research that includes research methods and techniques through a series of experiments. Prerequisite CHEM 305 Credit may not be received for both 306 and 310 or for both CHEM-308 and CHEM-310

Unit(s): 5

Differential and integral calculus for the student who needs a working knowledge of the subject but does not plan to pursue more advanced study in mathematics. Includes theory and application of limits derivatives and integrals. Prerequisite MATH 120 or satisfactory performance on placement test Credit may not be received for both MATH 130 and MATH 131

Unit(s): 3

-or-
Study of differential calculus of a single variable. Applications of the derivative are made to curve sketching max-min problems and linear approximation and IHopitals Rule. Also included are applications of the Intermediate Value Theorem and Mean Value Theorem. Credit may not be received for both MATH 130 and 131. Prerequisites MATH 120 or satisfactory performance on placement test

Unit(s): 3

And three additional CHEM courses numbered 320 and above.
