    Chemistry / Physics

    Is there any distance Chemistry or Physics w/lab 101 and 102 courses that are 4 credits each? I have found some Biology, but no chemistry or physics. Surely some school has these courses online, or in correspondence.

    I did a search on the Excelsior College DistanceLearn database. Interestingly enough Charter Oak State College offers Chem 101 w/Lab.

    You may want to explore this database further at: http://distancelearn.excelsior.edu/

    Murdoch University in Australia offers external undergraduate degrees in chemistry and physics and providing the instruction. I noticed they had a specific lab class called "Chemical Laboratory Techniques." This might be worth checking into so see what labs they offer in Chemistry and Physics. http://wwwscieng.murdoch.edu.au/athome.html

    Athabasca University offers Physics, 200, 201, and 202 with home lab kits and chemistry 200 which has a home lab, chem 201 requires a campus visit for the lab. At Athabasca 200 level courses are introductory courses.

    Just out of curiosity, why "4 credits each"? 4-semester-hour courses are unusual, although Harvard and Brigham Young University have them.

    I meant sem. hours. Most science courses in degree programs are 4 SH 3 + 1(lab), so that is what I was looking for. My technical college PTC has Bio. 101, and 102 that is 4SH, but not chem. or physics. I know that COSC has chem. 101 that is 4SH, but not 102. I was just looking for some schools that do have these courses in distance programs.

    Hello plcscott

    Louisiana state has some and also check with Open Learning Australia.

    The Excelsior link is quite good though.

    These are pre-med subjects...thinking of med school maybe?

    PM me if that's the case.

    Most of the CSUDH chemistry courses are 4 semester units courses. CSUDH also has 4 SU courses in Physics and maths.

    Greetings.

    Oklahoma University offers a series of two, sequential, 5 s/h credit "General Chemistry" courses, which are available in whatever format you please (i.e. paper or Internet). They both use software and other visual aids to model chemistry experiments, and therefore award lab credit. Considering that they are 5 s/h courses, their prices are not unreasonable. You can find out about the courses by visiting http://isd.ou.edu/ucourse.asp?dept=Chemistry

    N.B. Do follow the above link, as reaching the independent studies section from OU's main page requires lengthy and adroit navigation. <g>

    Cordially,
    Richard Kanarek

    P.S. I would personally be interested in other chemistry and, particularly, physics courses. Not just general physics, but any sort of physics courses that award lab credit. If anyone has any suggestions (with links?), please post them! Thanks!

    A couple of schools you might check out: ccconline.org and Mountain State University. I think both of them have chemistry with lab, not sure about Physics.

    Now I’m confused. Your alma mater, Piedmont Technical College, does indeed have Physics courses. Moreover, they are 4 semester hour courses and are specifically labeled as college transfer courses (see here). Didn’t you have to take Physics for your ASEET degree? I thought it was part of the curriculum.

    What part of distance do you not understand Gus?

    Yes, on the physics, but not college transfer 4 SH courses. They were 3 SH.

    You are so wanting to start some crap that you jump the gun don't you!

    Clemson where I also have 12 sem. hours from in technical education upper level courses requires chem. and physics courses to be 4 SH each.

    Might I suggest if you are not interested in helping then start some crap somewhere else!

    Excuse me? I believe you were the one who brought up your alma mater and their Physics courses.

    Uh, oh. Last July, when I commented of the transferability of the courses listed in the curriculum for your ASEET degree, you wrote (see here):
    • ”As usual in my case Gus you do not know what you are talking about. You assume a lot don't you. All of my general education courses will transfer to any institution because I took the college transfer general ed. courses instead of the ones required by my two year degree program. I have had English 101, and 102, PSY. 201 and 203, MUS 105, Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, University Physics 221, 222, and 223.” [emphasis added]
    I don’t know, plcscott, being that Piedmont Technical College lists (see here) University Physics 221, 222. and 223 as 4 semester hour college transfer courses, and you claimed to have taken those courses, perhaps you can understand my confusion.

    I was accused of jumping the gun when you first listed your courses and I am again being accused of doing so. The bottom line, however, is that it doesn’t appear that you were being truthful. You either took the 4 semester hour Physic courses (12 semester hours!) as you had previously claimed, or you did not, as you are now professing.

    Why is this relevant?

    The truth is never crap, plcscott. I’m just curious as to when you were telling the truth—then, now, or perhaps never.

    4 credit engineering physics (transfer) courses through Salt Lake Community College. SLCC
    Also, 4 credit Chemistry courses.
    1 credit lab classes are normally concurrently attended with all these courses, although I don't believe they are required unless the student is attempting a degree through SLCC.
    I don't know if these courses would be of any help to anyone though.
    Good luck,
    Tony

    Greetings.

    A while ago, I conducted a search for DL/IS physics courses that were suitable to my needs, e.g. Calculus based Physics with Lab credit.

    I confess to being quite perturbed by the fact that I was able to find courses that will satisfy any one of the above requirements, or even any two, but I could not find a single course that met all three requirements! Can anyone suggest a source for RA/GAAP "Calculus based Physics with Lab" classes? Remember, I'm looking for classes with all three components!

    Cordially,
    Richard Kanarek

    physics I&II w/lab

    Richard,

    Here is a link to the courses that I hope you are looking for.

    Richard:

    Gus turned me on to Mountain State, They have two distance physics course tracks that are back to back. I have found that not all engineering programs will accept Physics 1 and 2.

    One of mountain state's tracks is Physics for Engineers 1 and 2. These courses seem to mirror courses in engineering programs, and will more than likely suite your need.
