1 Physical Sciences 11. Foundations and Frontiers of Modern Chemistry: A Molecular and Global Perspective Lectures MWF 10-11am, Sci. Ctr. Hall D Spring 2015 Synopsis: The Physical Sciences hold the key to solving unprecedented problems at the intersection of science, technology, and an array of rapidly emerging global scale challenges. The course emphasizes a molecular scale understanding of energy and entropy; free energy in equilibria, acid/base reactivity, and electrochemistry; molecular bonding and kinetics; catalysis in organic and inorganic systems; the union of quantum mechanics, nanostructures, and photovoltaics; and the analysis of nuclear energy. Case studies are used both to develop quantitative reasoning and to directly link these principles to global strategies. Instructors: Jim Anderson [email protected] LINK 268 Gregory Tucci [email protected] Sci. Ctr. 114 Office hours will be held MWF from 11-11:30 AM in Hall D immediately after class. An additional office hour will be held from 2-3 PM on Friday in LINK 267. If you are not able to attend office hours, feel free to email the instructors to set up an alternative time to meet. Preceptor: Lu Wang [email protected] Sci. Ctr. 213 Head Admin TF: Lecca Roberts [email protected] Please email Lecca if you have any questions or difficulties with sectioning, registering your clickers, or if you are unable to attend an exam. Head Lab TF: Izzy Stephens [email protected] Prerequisites: A few operations of calculus are developed and used. Fluency in pre-calculus secondary school mathematics is assumed. Students are expected to have high school chemistry, or have completed Life and Physical Sciences A (LPS A) or Life Sciences 1a (LS 1a), or permission of the instructors. Course Texts: The course text is free and each chapter will be available for download on the course website each Friday before the week that the material is covered in lectures. Sectioning: Students must section three times for this course using the online sectioning tool: Detailed instructions can be found on the course website. once for the weekly discussion section (1 hour) once for laboratory section (3 hours, meets 7 times total) once for the problem solving workshop section (1 hour) It will only be offered Fridays from 12-1pm in Science Center Hall D, but we ask that you section for this as well to avoid scheduling conflicts. Sectioning will open Sunday, Jan 25 at 5pm and CLOSE Friday Jan 30 at 5pm . Please contact the Head Admin TF, Lecca Roberts, [email protected] if you have any concerns about sectioning.

    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.
