4 Reading Assignments Lectures are designed to help you understand the material presented in the textbook. To get the most out of lecture one should always read the appropriate sections before they are discussed in class. A tentative schedule of lecture topics is given below and is posted on the course website. You should read the first four chapters (Ch. 0-3) in Harris right away. We will go through this introductory material quickly. Harris has over 650 pages, and some decisions have been made regarding the scope of a one-semester course. In the interests of the biochemistry curriculum and to modernize the course, we have kept coverage of traditional methodology limited to about one-third of the semester and have given spectroscopy and chromatography (instrumental analysis) more emphasis. Chapters to be covered and their order of discussion are listed on below in this Syllabus . In addition, handouts will be given out on Fourier transform NMR spectroscopy. This scope requires covering one chapter in one or two lectures for most of the semester . Fortunately, the chapters are short and readable, and have lots of examples. The book is well suited to this pace.

5 Homework Assignments Homework assignments consisting of Problems assigned for each chapter will be posted on the course website. These will not be collected or graded, but you must do them promptly to stay on track in CHEM 300. CHEM 300 requires working a lot of numerical problems, particularly in chapters 1-12. This is one of those facts of life; it is the same in similar courses at other universities. For those of you not taking physical chemistry, this will be the chemistry course with the most quantitative challenges. These problems are not demanding in terms of math skills; typically they require solving only simple algebraic expressions. The challenge comes from the need to understand chemical principles and to apply them in order for you to “set up” the problem and obtain the
