1 CHEMISTRY 130 General Chemistry: Macroscopic Investigations and Reaction Principles Fall 2018 Syllabus Overview of the course Chemistry 130 is a general introduction to the principles of chemistry. Chemistry 130 meets as lecture and discussion sections only. General Chemistry laboratory is a separate course (CHEM 125 and 126) which is recommended to be taken concurrently but does not need to be – 125 can be taken in a later term. Some students have had the equivalent of Chemistry 130 in high school and proceed directly to Chemistry 210 (Organic Chemistry: Structure and Reactivity I). The usual requirement for this is advanced placement (AP) 4 or 5 credit. In CHEM 130, you will attend lectures three times per week. In addition, you will meet once per week in a discussion/problem solving class led by a graduate student instructor (GSI). Individually graded weekly quizzes will also be given in discussions.
