Liceo de Cagayan University College of Arts and Sciences Natural Sciences Department Cagayan de Oro City COURSE SYLLABUS

I. COURSE NUMBER CHEMISTRY 2 II. DESCRIPTIVE TITLE Organic Chemistry III. RATIONALE OF THE COURSE Basic organic Chemistry is offered to B.S. Psychology and B.S. Biology students for them to have thorough understanding of thee principles and methods involved inn the course. A good foundation of the principles of Organic Chemistry will provide todays students especially for those working towards career in the social and life sciences, a thorough understanding of theoretical concepts needed in the future. It provides a solid base for the subject that promote understanding and critical thinking while limiting the scope of the presentations and introducing applications to agriculture and biological sciences, home and consumer issues and health concerns. Knowledge of Organic Chemistry will give the students an awareness of the problems of the community that will enable them to actively participate in the basic thrust of t he program and projects of the government, so they can use this as tools in working on a firm foundation in the community, and in so doing hopes the students will be able to contribute to the sublime task of nation building. IV. COURSE DESCRIPTION Organic Chemistry will provide the students a thorough and concise introduction to the most important and fundamental principles of Organic Chemistry. The students are made to understand that functional groups are the basis for many organic syntheses. The wide scope of the subject provides an understanding on the issues of energy, environment, health, industry, natural products, and food. At the end of the semester, the students are expected to have skills in the nomenclature of both aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, know general properties of alkanes, alkenes, nomenclature of both aliphatic and aromatic alcohols, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, monocarboxylic acids, aromatic acids and salts. An introduction to Biochemistry is also included in preparation for their Physiology classes. V. COURSE OBJECTIVES At the end of this course, the students are expected to:

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. VI.

Analyze the basic principles governing Organic Chemistry. Value the importance of Organic Chemistry especially to everyday life. Demonstrate integration of values in lifes choices related to Organic Chemistry. Practice an understanding of and critical thinking to the issues of energy, environment, commerce and health. Develop practical appreciation for the environmental implication of Organic Chemistry. Explore application to agriculture, biological sciences and other home concerns.
