It may seem that our course numbers are assigned on a random basis, but there is some method to our assignments! The course numbers are four digit numbers where the digits have some meaning:
First digit – indicates the level of the course:
Second digit – indicates the subdiscipline of chemistry taught in the course:
Third digit – differentiates between courses at a similar level taught to different student audiences:
Fourth digit – In general, an odd number indicates the first course in a multiple course sequence, while an even number indicates the second course in that sequence.
