PASS FAIL CM8003 From Alchemy to Chemistry SEM 2 This is a new module, the first time this module opened was in AY13-14 Semester 2. It will also be available in the upcoming AY14-15 Semester 2. Going by this trend, it seems to only be available in Semester 2. Photo Stardust.com The module itself is interesting, it recounts on how modern chemistry developed from Ancient Greece to the Middle Ages and towards the modern era. It does not require a very fantastic knowledge of chemistry. However, having some basic knowledge of chemistry would be helpful. What makes this module easy is the fact that both the finals and the mid-terms are MCQ. It is also a Pass/Fail module. Meaning that it wont drag your GPA down. However, this also means it will not boost up your GPA. It is not difficult to pass either. The content is pretty light and all the lectures are recorded in case you miss anything. MCQ BS8003 SCIENCE OR FICTION? – BIOLOGY IN POPULAR MEDIA (Year 2 Semester 1, Yr 14/15) Lecturer: Mainly Dr Sze Chun Chau Grade: A Grading components: Clicker Questions, MCQ Midterms & MCQ Finals I really enjoyed this module due to my interest in biology & movies/shows. We’d watch several segments of a movie/show (sometimes she will play the whole movie) that is science-related such as CSI, Jurassic Park, Memento, GATTACA etc. So the first half the lecture will be spent watching the shows and the other half will be spent explaining the scientific concepts behind it. Dr Sze delivered the lecture extremely well, she was very clear and concise – even if you didn’t understand what she explained during the lecturer, you can always watch the recorded lectures again! It was a lot easier to remember such concepts as you could relate back to the movie. Apart from the scientific part, parts from the movie can also be tested in the midterms/finals. She doesn’t recommend us to do the past year papers as this module’s syllabus gets updated quite often.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
