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.

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). The schedule of office hours is posted in the SLC and on the Ctools web site.
