    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For science majors, chemistry is a popular choice. CHEM 1113 or General Chemistry 1 is an interesting class, you are bound to learn something new every week. It is taught in a traditional lecture hall and it includes a lab course where you can learn from first-hand experiments.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained a lot from this course. High school chemistry is about three weeks of the semester, the rest being new content. One of my favorite units in this course is determining molecular shapes using electron pairs. I also enjoyed thermodynamics. I enjoyed learning about how to determine energy absorbance by manipulating given chemical equations.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    First, attend the lectures. The course uses clickers for in-class concept quizzes, and it is a way the professors can keep track of attendance. Plus, showing up to lectures is a great way on gaining knowledge on the unit you are currently studying. Second, finish your online homework as soon as possible. Do not procrastinate until the night it is due. Each weekly assignment is designed to help you be comfortable and understand the unit, and therefore, it is very time consuming. Third, reviewing for midterms are relatively easy. All the lectures are posted online, and the professors organize the lectures into midterm 1, 2, and 3. You can easily find which lecture to start studying on and which lecture to stop studying on. and finally, attend recitation for chemistry. Recitation is in a smaller classroom environment and is a great place to ask questions on a certain topic. At recitation, there are weekly assignments due before the class and is very useful on going in-depth on certain topics.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a challenge, but a very interesting take on the physical world. If you like science, chemistry is fascinating.

    Course highlights:

    Learned about chemical structure an fundamental properties, how atoms interact to stimulus, where electrons are around different atoms. At the end you learn about equilibrium.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get help often, study in groups. If you dont understand the math get help until you do. Value what you are learning and it will be worth it

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a well taught course by a well taught professor. As a chemical engineer it is important to get the best chemistry classes possible and I feel with CHEM 1113 I am at a great spot to keep my degree going

    Course highlights:

    This course is great to get chemistry knowledge up or to remind people what knowledge they already know. This course is very informative and even though it may seem stressful in a large environment it is very easy to ignore that environment while paying attention

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't blow off homework or any type of assignment in this class. It is important to stay ahead of what needs to be done instead of letting yourself fall behind and try to make everything up at the last minute
