This course will cover aspects of chemistry that occurs in many parts of our world--from free-radical chemistry occurring in the atmosphere to the carbonate cycle in the ocean to the effects of radioactivity. Studies will include human impacts on the chemistry of the natural world as well as what can be done to mitigate those impacts.

Students will view asynchronous video lectures and engage in weekly discussion and problem-solving sessions. To successfully complete this program, students should have access to a computer, internet for synchronous activities, and access to Canvas. Students should expect to participate in up to 2.5 hours of synchronous meetings per week using Zoom in Canvas. Alternative assignments will allow students to earn comparable credit if conditions prevent them from accessing synchronous meetings.
