    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you don't have a strong foundation in Chemistry this class requires a lot of out of class preparation and work. I would definitely consider this class a weed out class and would avoid if it is not required for your major. That being said, if you're willing to put in the time it is possible to receive an A in the course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to think critically and apply different Chemistry concepts. You learn a lot of foundational Chemistry material such as dimensional analysis, electron configurations, quantum numbers, PES, molecular orbital theory, limiting reagents, stoichiometry and things of that nature.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed you should try to do the readings even though they seem dry and dense becuase they will help you when the material is covered in lecture. Also, take advantage of any and all extra credit oppurtunities. Even though they take time they can really salvage your grade. It's very important to take studying for the tests seriously because they are tough and account for over 80% of your final grade. Go to office hours or tutoring if you are even slightly confused becasue the material builds on itself.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course since Dr. Joshua Beaver is an engaging professor who is willing to integrate chemistry concepts that we are supposed to learn from a flipped classroom setting into his lectures. This class is definitely beneficial to students who seek to major in chemistry, and I highly encourage students to take this course regardless of whether one has AP credit placement. CHEM 101 is a challenging course that attempts to alter the perspectives in which you have engaged chemistry concepts throughout your high-school classes. This course requires participation, and there are multiple sources throughout UNC Chapel Hill that a student can access if he or she does not demonstrate an appropriate amount of understanding for the course material. Examples of resources may include recitation sections, CHEMPOSSIBLE, office hours, Chemistry Resource Center.

    Course highlights:

    A highlight of this course was analyzing properties of matter and how the periodic table can be used to identify existing relationships prevalent within different elements. Stoichiometry is an important concept that is reintegrated throughout the entire development of this course, and it involves the utilization of deriving mathematical relationships between different chemicals ans ions within various chemical reactions. Stoichiometry is a concept that is well needed in analyzing titration and dilution problems, and it can be used to answer numerous questions (ex: How much of a particular substance is utilized when a certain amount of another substance is utilized?). From this course, I have learned that the method of teaching from my high-school Honors chemistry class was somehow inaccurate in failing to explain the concepts of how to describe electron density within an element. However, this class enabled me to gain a more solidified understanding of this particular concept. I have learned a lot of mathematical formulas that describe the interaction between matter and energy as well as how equilibrium is maintained throughout different chemical systems.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Group office hours are a true benefit in succeeding this course. There may be some hidden concepts on the three exam midterms and the final exams that may be covered through the group office hours. Attending recitation sections can be also helpful since recitation peer mentors may deliver tips and tricks in order to master certain concepts exemplified through CHEM 101. My advice is to connect different ways of identifying properties of chemical substances, and identifying this theme could make it increasingly convenient for a student to master the concepts within this class. Another advice I have is to find a trustful partner and form a study group. In this study group, it is important to challenge each other's understanding of the concepts discussed within class since there are multiple choice questions on the final exam that can assess your true understanding of the concepts. Do not rely on rogue memorization for understanding the concepts of this course.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    In all reality, general chemistry is more of a weed out class for students who are not compatible for science majors. I definitely would encourage students to take this course if they are looking to go into the science field. However, be weary because the class can become hard if you let it.

    Course highlights:

    As seen in the course title, the course spans general chemistry. This includes basic stoichiometry, nomenclature, mole relationships, and basic electron configurations.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Chemistry is a cumulative subject; material compounds on each other. It is very important to sufficiently learn the material as future classes will draw from it. Most importantly, you must understand the concepts rather than the method of solution.
