Medical General Chemistry I Laboratory

CHEM 1010L: Online General Chemistry I Lab

UNE Aca­d­e­m­ic Cal­en­dars | UNE Aca­d­e­m­ic Cat­a­log | Tech­ni­cal Require­ments

The lab­o­ra­to­ries that accom­pa­ny Online Med­ical Gen­er­al Chem­istry I are sim­i­lar to those per­formed by stu­dents in a lab­o­ra­to­ry set­ting on any col­lege or uni­ver­si­ty cam­pus, with one major excep­tion. The exper­i­ments per­formed by online stu­dents will take place in their homes using LabPaq’s pur­chased through Hands-on-Labs, Inc.

The Med­ical Gen­er­al Chem­istry I Lab and all UNE dis­tance lab­o­ra­to­ries have been made pos­si­ble by a nation­wide effort over the last 40 years to move away from tox­ic sub­stances and into micro­chem­istry. Micro­chem­istry efforts have also result­ed in safer lab­o­ra­to­ries that pro­duce less pol­lu­tion.

The lab­o­ra­to­ries are appro­pri­ate for intro­duc­to­ry-lev­el, col­lege Gen­er­al Chem­istry I cours­es for pre-health sci­ence majors at chal­leng­ing insti­tu­tions. An empha­sis is placed on under­stand­ing the con­cept of the lab­o­ra­to­ries and the sci­en­tif­ic method, since today’s health­care pro­fes­sion­als are expect­ed to have a gen­er­al under­stand­ing of how sci­ence and the sci­en­tif­ic method con­tribute to their pro­fes­sion.

The lab kit includes an intro­duc­tion to each lab­o­ra­to­ry, relat­ing the lab con­tent to the cor­re­spond­ing course lec­ture. These labs are a good fit for pre-med­ical, den­tal, PA, DPT, phar­ma­cy and nutri­tion stu­dents. 

If you need the corresponding Lecture

Gen­er­al Chem­istry I is designed for the stu­dent to take the lec­ture and lab con­cur­rent­ly in order to earn four cred­its. For the full four cred­its, you must reg­is­ter for both CHEM1010 and CHEM1010L. For stu­dents who only need a spe­cif­ic por­tion of Gen­er­al Chem­istry I, how­ev­er, you have the option to take lec­ture only (CHEM1010 three cred­its) or lab only (CHEM1010L one cred­it).

Impor­tant: When select­ing lec­ture and lab with­in FlexReg, please be sure that the sec­tion num­bers match. In the event that there is no match­ing lab num­ber, please select a dif­fer­ent lec­ture, or con­tact an enroll­ment spe­cial­ist. 

Section numbers must match for lecture and lab

What happens if a student messes up an experiment?

Mess­ing up an exper­i­ment is part of the learn­ing process and as such should be not­ed. Lab­Paqs gen­er­al­ly con­tain enough chem­i­cals and sup­plies to per­form each exper­i­ment twice. If a stu­dent com­plete­ly blows an exper­i­ment and uses up all relat­ed sup­plies, replace­ment sup­plies can be ordered from Hands-On Labs, the mak­er of Lab­Paqs.

How are laboratories graded?

Each lab has a cor­re­spond­ing 10-ques­tion quiz, and there is a lab­o­ra­to­ry final exam at the cul­mi­na­tion of the course.  All quizzes and the final exam are com­plet­ed online.

Enrollment online anytime

You may enroll at any time via our self-ser­vice reg­is­tra­tion por­tal. Pay­ment is due in full at the time of reg­is­tra­tion.  Your offi­cial start date is the date that the course opens and you will have 16 weeks from that date to com­plete your course.  

Courses start on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month

You must be reg­is­tered for your class by 12:00 noon EST on the Mon­day before the class starts. See the UNE Aca­d­e­m­ic Cal­en­dar for more details. 

Assistance with registration

If you have any ques­tions or need help with reg­is­ter­ing for your class, please call an Enroll­ment Coun­selor at 1–855-325‑0894, email, or view the online FlexReg course reg­is­tra­tion tuto­r­i­al

If you intend to use VA Ben­e­fits or Mil­i­tary Tuition Assis­tance, please do not use the self-reg­is­tra­tion por­tal. Please call 1–855-325‑0894 to be direct­ed to the appro­pri­ate office for assis­tance.
