CHEM0821. Chemistry of Wine. 3 Credit Hours.

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.

CHEM0838. Nature Has No Reverse. 3 Credit Hours.

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.

CHEM1055. Introduction to Problem Solving and Logical Thinking for Pre-Medical Post-Baccalaureates. 1 Credit Hour.

The ability to solve problems and think logically is essential for success in health professions schools because health professionals must be able to put together patient symptoms, test results, and current research to determine the best course of action for the patient in question. As a result, entrance exams for health professions schools test the ability to think and solve problems logically. However, the techniques of good problem solving are rarely explicitly taught at any point in a student's education, and science majors rarely take logic courses. This course seeks to fill that gap in a way that is geared specifically toward what is needed for pre-health students to succeed in their classes and on standardized tests. This course teaches students good problem-solving techniques and the basics of deductive and inductive logic. The students will spend class time practicing and applying the techniques and principles they are taught, either individually or in pairs/groups. This design will enable them to develop their skills of problem solving and logical thinking so that they can apply them not only to their classes, but to entrance exams for professional school and the practice of their profession as well.
