CHEM 121 (Majors Chemistry I) Fall 2013 Course components: CHEM 121 is the first of a three-quarter sequence of introductory courses in general chemistry for freshmen chemistry majors . This course has four components: 1) lecture; 2) O nline W eb-based L earning (OWL); 3) recitation; and 4) laboratory. 1) L ectures offer a broad overview of general chemistry fundamentals with special emphasis on their industrial, pharmaceutical and medical applications. 2) OWL provides solid training in solving general chemistry problems with the aim of developing (or just reinforcing) analytical thought and math skills. 3) R ecitation gives students experience in solving more applicative problems through inquiry-based teaching, as well as in presenting scientific material in front of an informed audience by Power Point presentations. 4) The weekly laboratory part ensures training in basic experimental techniques, in recording, reporting, and analyzing experimental results, as well as in working in the specific environment of a chemical laboratory. Objectives: At the end of the course, students should be able to: answer conceptual questions in chemistry topics, such as electronic structure of atoms and molecules; properties of elements and compounds; major types of chemical reactions; chemical bonding; and basic nuclear chemistry; solve quantitative problems related to stoichiometry; thermochemistry; and laws of gases; use chemical terminology and units of measures correctly; run elementary experiments and interpret experimental data; develop computational chemical data-processing skills (e.g, use of Microsoft Word, Excel), as well as scientific oral and written communication skills specifically applied to chemistry.

    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.
