College Science Prerequisites, Course Description and Textbooks

General Chemistry 2 (CHEM 102) - Prerequisites

High School Diploma or equivalent, and General Chemistry 1 or equivalent.

General Chemistry 2 (CHEM 102) - Course Description

General Chemistry 2 is a 4-unit, intensive, immersion-learning course that requires four weekends to complete. Classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30am to 6:30pm, which includes 2 face-to-face lecture sessions and 2 face-to-face laboratory sessions.

The General Chemistry 2 course further develops the concepts of chemical bonding in order to appreciate the size, shape, polarity and macroscopic behavior of molecules. The processes of oxidation-reduction will be explained, particularly as they apply to biological systems. Solution chemistry will be introduced, stressing the concepts of equilibria and colligative properties. Acid/base chemistry, including titrimetry, buffers, and pH will be studied. Nuclear chemistry in the evolution of matter will be briefly considered. Organic chemistry will be introduced as a corollary to concepts presented in the weekend college chemistry course.

Additional Unit: If a student needs to earn 5 semester units for
CHEM 102 instead of 4 to meet pre-requisite requirements of a given academic program he or she seek to gain admission into, he or she may sign up for an ISP Capstone taken concurrently with this Course. The ISP Capstone is a 1-Unit, instructor-supervised, independent, 45hr research project, which fosters opportunity for empirically based study that enhances, deepens, and further integrates knowledge of an ISP Courses key concept.
