CHE 106 - Chemical Principles with Biological Applications
(4 cr.) Students engage in active learning techniques to learn about atomic theory (including radioactivity), bonding (including ions and molecules) and intermolecular forces, states of matter, solutions (including solubility, acids and bases, buffers, electrolytes and nonelectrolytes), carbon compounds and functional groups, biomolecules (such as carbohydrates, fatty acids, and amino acids and proteins), receptors and enzymes, and nucleic acids and DNA. Students apply these fundamental chemical principles to a variety of health related case studies. A math placement score of 3 or higher is required to enroll in CHE 106. (Students with scores below a 3 must complete MA 107 with a grade of C or higher to improve proficiency in algebraic skills before enrolling in CHE 106.)(Enrollment restricted to nursing majors)(3 lecture hrs., 3 lab hrs.) Prerequisite: CHE 106L; Every Year, Fall and Spring
