From the Instructor:
This Chemistry 104 online is designed to give the successful student an introduction to the language and concepts of general chemistry completely from home. The students will follow the lessons, do homework, take examinations, and perform the laboratory assignments all from home. Expect to spend at least 20 hours per week studying and doing assignments for this class.

This course is designed for students in a health science program and technology program leading to a Baccalaureate degree or liberal arts students who need a laboratory science elective.

CH 104 is the first quarter of a year long sequence, CH 104, CH 105, and CH 106.

Click on 'order here.' Use login: C000289 and password: labpaq The price for the athomescience lab kit, CK 104 will be approximately $160. Each student is required to purchase a new lab kit. Only the original purchaser is covered under our liability plan and to participate in this fully online chemistry class and do the labs at home, you must be covered. Be prepared to submit your purchase order so that we can verify that you have a new kit.

All labs will be done at home and there will be no need for you to come to campus.

Overview of the three term series of chemistry 104, 105 and 106.

The chemistry 104, 105 and 106 series can provide the student entering the health fields a chemical background to support courses in physiology, pharmacology and general biology. A student beginning their health field programs with a full year of this GOB chemistry will gain the confidence and knowledge necessary to be successful in nursing programs, the medical lab tech programs, and in many other health related programs. This fundamental series prepares the student for general biology, physiology and the many aspects of dealing with environmental health issues.

Chemistry 104 is the first term in the series, which covers the basic concepts of atoms and molecules, and introduces the tools required for problem solving and related applications.

The next course, chemistry 105 will continue building the fundamental concepts of mixtures and solutions, acids and bases, nuclear chemistry and introduces the student to organic chemistry. Also, in chemistry 105, the student will continue to build confidence with the problem solving tools so often used while working in the medical fields.

The last course in the series is chemistry 106 which continues with organic chemistry and transitions into biochemistry, the chemistry of life. A student taking chemistry 106 will study carbohydrates, proteins and fats or lipids as related to nutrition, metabolism and cell structure. The student will develop an understanding of drug structure will be introduced and amazed by the chemical structure of DNA.

This 3 term process is designed to provide the student with an overview of the chemistry of life as it relates to the medical fields.
It is highly recommended that chemistry 104 is followed with chemistry 105 and then with chemistry 106.

Note! We are conducting an assessment on student retention in the DL CH 104 class. We understand that sometimes students have to drop the class. To help us understand more about our student enrollment and to better serve our students, we ask that you send us a quick email to let us know why you dropped the class after signing up. Is there something we could have done differently?
