First of a two-semester freshman chemistry sequence (CH302) Designed for natural science majors, premeds, and others with some chemistry knowledge who want to know more! Builds on presumed basic chemistry background from High School or previous chemistry courses (e.g., CH304/5) Expects class attendance and participation, homework, in-class questions, and exams New knowledge and understanding + problem-solving skills form a basis upon which other courses will build Essential class which acts as a prerequisite for higher level chemistry courses Prerequisite is credit or concurrent registration in calculus class (M408C, 408D, 408K, 408L, 408M, 427L) What is CH 301? General Course Info Drop Dates Homework on assumed knowledge will be due before and graded in-class work will not start until after 12th class day. Undergraduate Chemistry Course Office (WEL 2.212) Questions on registration, add/drop, prereqs, lost & found, etc. Accommodations and Religious holidays Notify me before the 12th class day Required Course Materials Textbook Zumdahl, Chemical Principles, Sixth edition. A hardcopy of the 5th edition is much cheaper now that a newer edition has been printed, and plenty of used copies are available. Amazon sometimes supplies an EduSpace passcode with this edition, just read carefully to check what you are buying. The custom eBook edition for UT Chemistry ($127) lists the chapters in the order covered, has a passcode to access the entire textbook online, along with a support material, and is a looseleaf copy so you only have to carry the chapter we are working on, rather than the whole book. A used copy will not have a passcode. 4 5 6
