CHEM 1701 Living in the Material World (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

How much carbon dioxide is produced per capita? Why is it a good measure of our excessive consumption of materials and energy? Why is it bad for the environment? This course guides you through questions like these to examine the interactions of human beings with the rest of the world. By studying the molecular nature of matters, you gain an understanding on the feedback mechanism that governs the world we live in and obtain knowledge on why we need to live responsibly for a sustainable future. You will also participate in lab sessions for first-hand chemistry experiences.
