Connections between chemistry and other natural sciences and engineering with real-world applications and examples. Focus is on preparing to teach under the K12 Next Generation Science Standards with the goal of teaching science with confidence.
Strongly Recommended Preparation: Upper division status (greater than 60 earned semester units) and completion of lower division Areas B1-B3.
Prerequisites: Completion of GE Areas A1, A2, A3 and B4 with grade C- (CR) or better; and CHEM 100.
Equivalent Quarter Course: CHEM 3011.
Possible Instructional Methods: Entirely Online.
Grading: A-F or CR/NC (student choice).
Breadth Area(s) Satisfied: GE-UDB- Upper Division Science Inquiry and Quantitative Reasoning
Course Typically Offered: Fall & Spring
Student Learning Outcomes - Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:
- Design a lesson for middle-school students connecting chemistry with another STEM discipline;
- Relate the wavelength of light to the electromagnetic spectrum and transitions in the hydrogen atom;
- Calculate internal energy from heat and work;
- Predict the sign of entropy change, and compute standard entropy changes;
- Predict the products of electrolysis reactions.
UD-B. Upper-division Science Inquiry and Quantitative Reasoning Learning Outcomes
- demonstrate advanced and/or focused science or quantitative content knowledge in a specific scientific field, using appropriate vocabulary and referencing appropriate concepts (such as models, uncertainties, hypotheses, theories, and technologies);
- apply advanced quantitative skills (such as statistics, algebraic solutions, interpretation of graphical data) to scientific problems and evaluate scientific claims;
- demonstrate understanding of the nature of science and scientific inquiry and the experimental and empirical methodologies used in science to investigate a scientific question or issue; and
- apply science content knowledge to contemporary scientific issues (e.g., global warming) and technologies (e.g., cloning), where appropriate.
