    DESIGNATION:  Level I requirement

    GOALS:  The goals of this course are to empower students with the scientific confidence, skills and knowledge needed to become active participants in creating solutions for the challenges facing humanity this century. 

    Fall trimester will focus on the Chemistry of the pond as a place we can see and experience all the basic principles of Chemistry. Chemistry is often defined as the “study of matter and energy.” Within this framework we will build an understanding of how matter and energy travel through this local ecosystem, and from there we can begin to see how the entire planet works to sustain humans and all life. 

    In the winter trimester we will continue to trace this flow of matter and energy, in particular related to the element Carbon, and the chemistry involved, as it travels through the various reservoirs of the planet, from atmosphere to living things, to the oceans and even the crust of the earth, and back to the atmosphere again. Along the way there is much marine chemistry to be explored related to ocean acidification and animal shell formation. We will do interesting experiments on pH, buffers and related topics. By the end of the winter term students will have a deep understanding and appreciation for how these processes are at the heart of the functioning of this living planet and will also see how humans are playing a part in this dynamic. 

    Spring trimester will be all about meeting human requirements for food and energy in the context of this global understanding. We will explore the chemistry of plants grown for food and the chemistry of energy needed to power civilization. Throughout the course all the fundamental concepts of chemistry such as atomic theory and bonding, chemical reactions, acid-base chemistry and more, will be integrated into this larger paradigm of how the chemistry of our home planet Earth, maintains the ideal conditions for life.
