General Education

0821. Chemistry of Wine (3 s.h.) RCI: GS.

Wine has occupied a central role in human culture. In our exploration of the science of wine we will learn why wine was the beverage of choice through the ages, why a bottle of wine can range from $2 to $2,000, how wine is made, what makes a good/bad wine, how is white different from red, and how we know what is in a bottle of wine. The course begins with a large scale fermentation of red and white wine and will continue with team-based analyses of the two month process of turning grape juice into wine. Many aspects of the production and consumption of wine will be addressed in this course.

Note: This course fulfills a Science & Technology (GS) requirement for students under GenEd and the Science & Technology Second Level (SB) requirement for students under Core. Mode: Three hours of lecture with one hour recitation.

0838. Nature Has No Reverse (3 s.h.) RCI: GS.

Rapid advances in modern science often tend to conceal the forest in the trees, but we all need enough familiarity with the scientific method to make informed judgments as citizens and voters. This course will take you on a journey through the history of science, with stops at the Second Law of Thermodynamics, the revolution of fire, the rational basis of life, energy as the universal currency and changes in the universe around us. We will end with that most disturbing of paradoxes: the certainty of uncertainty. Each week includes both lecture and hands-on demonstration/practicum.

Note: This course fulfills a Science & Technology (GS) requirement for students under GenEd and the Science & Technology Second Level (SB) requirement for students under Core. Mode: Two hours lecture and three hours of hands-on demonstration/practicum per week.

In this class, students will learn proper handling of laboratory materials and perform experiments that are integrated with, as well as introduce and reinforce, the material from the lecture. This course is intended to prepare students for General Chemistry by emphasizing the mathematical basis of chemistry and laboratory measurements. A quantitative introduction to atomic and molecular structure, states of matter, basic thermodynamics, solutions, gas laws, kinetics, and equilibrium.
