Wednesday, 8/26/2009 CHEM 1251, FALL 2009 Learning Goals for this Course -- BIG IDEAS These ideas will cycle throughout the semester: 1. What is the nature of matter? 2. How can we predict the properties of matter, and how is the periodic table helpful? 3. What makes chemical react, and why do reactions go in a particular direction? 4. How can we quantify changes in chemical reactions? Framing Scenario for first two topic areas You are a global health worker employed by the Gates Foundation in Zimbabwe. A cholera outbreak seems likely, and there is no way to order prepackaged sterile intravenous drip solution in time--you’re going to have to prepare it and sterilize it yourself. The solution must be 51 mM NaCl and 185 mM glucose, and you need to prepare 500 liters. You have one chance to phone in the correct order in kilograms for NaCl and glucose. Time to remember the metric system, conversion factors, chemical formula-writing, and concepts and
