Showalter Email: [email protected] Office Hours: 106 Chemistry Building (Chemistry Building is NOT Whitmore!) by appointment courses.chem.psu.edu/Chem110fall Lecture Notes can be downloaded and printed at: research.chem.psu.edu/sasgroup/chem110 Chemistry 110 Necessary materials CH110 FA11 SAS 2 1. Textbook: Brown, LeMay, Bursten, & Murphy; Chemistry: The Central Science , 11 th ed., 2009. Required. Note: Half Text (“Volume 1”) is an option. 2. Fall Chem 110 Student Packet. Required. 3. Wilson Solutions to Exercises in Chemistry, The Central Science , 11 th ed. Highly Recommended. 4. ALEKS system access. Required (this is your homework). 5. Non-text programmable calculator – Required. What is Chemistry 110? CH110 FA11 SAS 3 1. From the Course Packet: Chemistry 110 is the first in a two-course sequence in general chemistry. Chemistry impacts every area in our lives: from how our bodies work, to the environment, to new materials, to how we live and work. Our goals for this course are for you to recognize that what happens at the molecular level profoundly affects our macroscopic world and how fun chemistry is. By the end of Chem 110, you will understand conceptually (1) how atoms combind to form molecules; (2) how molecules interact and react with each other; and (3) how the molecular-level structure affects the macroscopic properties. 2. From ME Chemistry 110 expands on what you already know from previous chemistry courses, teaches you some new concepts, introduces you to scientific reasoning, and applies these ideas to important topics regardless of what your major is. It is the key concepts and ideas (the “big picture”) that we hope you take from this course (e.g. what you will remember a year from now). They will be foundational for almost any career you choose. Should you be here? CH110 FA11 SAS 4 No previous chemistry experience? Chem 101 is a better option; Chem 110 is NOT appropriate for you! Prerequisites for Chem 110 see general course info on website • Algebra • High school chemistry • Chapters 1, 2 in text • Familiarity with Chapters 3, 4, 10 NOTE: Chem 110 assumes previous exposure to Chemistry—we move very quickly Chem 108 is 1-credit add-on course to Chem 110 for students needing more help (you can add now during the drop/add period) Who am I? CH110 FA11 SAS 5 Name: Dr. Scott Showalter Degrees: BS, Cornell University Ph.D., Washington University School of Medicine Hometown: Rochester, NY Job: Assistant Professor of Chemistry Teach and run a research group of seven people including two undergraduate researchers. Research: Biophysical Chemistry: We utilize NMR spectroscopy and other techniques to understand structure-function relationships in medically relevant bio-molecules. Who are your TAs?...
