    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Chemistry plays a huge role in our lives. If we have the opportunity to grasp a little bit of chemistry knowledge we will be able to see the world differently.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the different types of atoms the periodic table has.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Studying is very important when completing this course. What helped me the most was to quiz myself with notecards.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the course because the professor had a bunch of examples to work on in class, which were worked on the board later, and overall because of the variety and quantity of material to be learned.

    Course highlights:

    The mainframe and what I learned from this course, was unit conversion, stoichiometry, nomenclature (names of polyatomic ions, and some acids and bases), simple calculation of thermal energy, types of reactions, basics of quantum numbers (shells, orbitals, spin, etc.), basic diagrams like the lewis dot diagram, calculation of valence electrons of compounds, geometric structures of compounds (names and drawing rules), basic gas laws, and of course lab practice with various chemical reactions, thermal energy, etc., and with the relevant calculations.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you finish all homework as soon as you can, there is a lot of work to do. Be sure to learn nomenclature as soon as introduced, it saves you a bunch of time in class, and will be on each test once you've gone over it in class.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Cartwright is an amazing professor. I highly recommend her solely over the fact that she creates an inviting atmosphere where everyone can contribute their answers without fearing of humiliation.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are getting to know different people. After each test, we would play "musical chairs" where you would have to move to another seat, where you would learn more people's names and figure out who could help you the most in the class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering this course, I advise you to know a little bit about Chem from high school. Do not miss a class because it takes a little bit of time to miss a bunch of information.
