CHEMISTRY 130 General Chemistry: Macroscopic Investigations and Reaction Principles Winter 2008 Syllabus Chemistry 130 is a general introduction to the principles of chemistry. Chemistry 130 meets as lectures and discussion sections only. General Chemistry laboratory is a separate course (Chemistry 125) which can be taken concurrently but does not need to be - it can be taken in a later term. Some entering students have had the equivalent of Chemistry 130 in high school and proceed directly to Chemistry 210. The usual requirement for this is advanced placement (AP) 4 or 5 credit. In Chemistry 130 you will attend lectures three times per week. The lecture sections are listed below. In addition, you will meet once per week in a discussion class, lead by a graduate student instructor (GSI), who provides individual help with assignments. Weekly quizzes (10-15 minutes) will be given in discussions. unique Lecturer name Office Section Time Room Jadwiga Sipowska dotie 3545 Chem Course Coordinator 400 11-12 1640 Marc Johnson mjaj 2809 Chem 100 9-10 1210 200 11-12 1800 Required Course Materials The required textbook for CHEM 130 is Ebbing/Gammon, Chemistry, 8th ed., Media Enhanced Edition, custom edition for the University of Michigan.

The CTools site for Chem 130 is used by your lecturer to post course-related material of all kinds, including supplemental information, information about tests and quizzes, assignments, lectures, etc. You should check CTools often. The Science Learning Center (SLC). The SLC is located just outside Chem 1800 (the large lecture hall) in the mezzanine of the Atrium of the Chemistry Building. The SLC contains many resources to help you learn chemistry. It is where the GSI's hold office hours and where the Peer-Study groups meet (see below). GSI's Office hours. Chemistry 130 GSI's hold scheduled office hours in the SLC, where they can provide one-on-one help to Chem 130 students. You can get help from any Chem 130 GSI at office hours (it does not have to be the GSI who leads your discussion section).

    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.
