ASTRO-010 - Introduction to Astronomy    3.00 Units 

Instructor: C. Batalha
Reg ID: 111530                                            Section: 205
Time: To be announced                               Room: Canvas      

This is an introductory science course for non-science majors covering topics of modern Astronomy. It highlights pivotal aspects in the history of Astronomy such as its distinction and further separation from Astrology. It lists the physical processes governing the origins of a star system and indicates the causes of the apparent motion of sky objects and cyclic sky events. The sources of periodical astronomical events such as phases of the moon, solar and lunar eclipses, meteor showers, and seasons are identified and related via the fundamental laws of physics. The astronomical tools of photometry and spectroscopy are introduced for their indispensable role in analysis towards the detection of planets around other stars, the investigation of dark matter and dark energy, and the ongoing search for extraterrestrial life. Additional topics include the origins of galaxies, large scale structure, and a full description of the Big Bang theory.

CHEM-001A - General Chemistry  5.00 Units 

Instructor: Preeti Srinivasan
Reg ID: 111287                                             Section: 201
Time: 12:15 PM—01:35 PM (LEC) M,W       Room: MS217
          09:00  AM—12:05 PM (LAB) M,W       Room: MS203

This is the first course in general chemistry with lab, for science and pre-professional majors. It covers basic chemical principles: nomenclature, atomic structure, quantum theory, molecular structure and bonding, periodic properties, chemical reactions, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, states of matter, gas laws, solutions, oxidation-reductions, and molecular equilibrium. The role that chemistry plays in everyday life, industry, and human welfare is emphasized.   

 

CHEM-012B - Organic Chemistry  5.00 Units 

Instructor: Preeti Srinivasan (Lecture)  
Reg ID: 111294                                            Section: 201
Time: 12:15 PM—01:35 PM (LEC) T,Th      Room: MS217
          09:00 AM—12:05PM (LAB) T,Th       Room: MS211

This is the second course of a two-semester sequence in organic chemistry designed to follow Chemistry 012A. Topics include nomenclature, stereochemistry, mechanisms, reactions, and spectroscopic studies of aliphatic and aromatic alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, acids, and other classes of organic and biological compounds (such as amino acids, proteins, and nucleic acids). Problem-solving techniques will be used to elucidate mechanistic, structural, and stereochemical features in chemical reactions. Lectures and laboratory methods will focus on synthesis, isolation, purification, elucidation, and identification of organic structures as well as instrumental methods and data interpretation.

 

PHYS-02B - Alg/Trig Physics II    4.00 Units 

Instructor: C. Batalha
Reg ID: 111545                                            Section: 201
Time: 12:15 PM—01:35 PM (LEC) T,Th      Room: MS119
          09:00 AM—12:05PM (LAB) T            Room: MS115      

This is the second algebra-based course in general physics for students not majoring in physics, engineering, or astronomy. The basic principles of vector operation, Newton's laws of motion, and conservation of momentum and energy covered in PHYS 002A are applied to topics in electricity, magnetism, optics, and modern physics.


PHYS-04B - General Physics     5.00 Units 

Instructor: C. Batalha
Reg ID: 111545                                            Section: 201
Time: 12:15 PM—02:05 PM (LEC) M,W      Room: MS113
          09:00 AM—12:05PM (LAB) M            Room: MS115      

This course is one of a three-semester series in calculus-based general physics, serving students majoring in engineering, chemistry, physics, mathematics and other sciences. It emphasizes conceptual aspects of electricity, magnetism, circuits, and Maxwell's equations, and requires quantitative analysis of real world situations.



SERV-001 - Intro--Comm. Service Learning    1.00 Units 

Instructor: J. Girardi
Reg ID: 112271                                           Section: 202
Time: To be announced                               Room: Online      

This course offers students community-based learning through classroom instruction and critical reflection to arrive at a personal understanding of the need and importance for community service, civic responsibility, cultural competence and activism for social justice. The course will include community service in a non-profit organization or school of choice that meets a real need in the community.
