    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Sibert is a very passionate professor. He wants you to not just learn the material, but appreciate the subject that is chemistry.

    Course highlights:

    GenChem 1 is very concept based. From learning about naming different compounds to being able to manipulate equations GenChem 1 teaches you the basics of chemistry. If you've taken AP Chem a lot of the subject matter will be familiar.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of ALEKS. The first week or so you'll have it easy so get ahead in it. Otherwise having 15 topics a week gets difficult. Also do the practice problems, that'll ensure your success.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For many--if not all--STEM degrees, General Chemistry I is a required course. This course applies the concepts to real life situations. Chemical reactions occur all the time outside of laboratories. It is essential knowledge, especially so that you do not accidentally create a noxious gas inside your own home by mixing bleach and vinegar. Dr. Stephanie Taylor makes the course very engaging and fun with her bubbly personality.

    Course highlights:

    The demonstrations Dr. Taylor provided were most definitely highlights of Gen Chem I. I learned that an atom technically has an infinite radius due to the fact that electrons have no limit as to which shell they may occupy.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is essential to study every day in order to learn the material. There is a lot to learn in one semester, there are a lot of formulas and derivations that can be used to solve various problems. The best way to learn these is to read the textbook every day, and to practice textbook problems every day. Pay attention in class, take notes, ask questions, complete your work on time.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend her course because she teaches the course in a manner that anyone can understand and her pace isn't too fast. I came into the course with only high school chemistry while I was surrounded by AP Chemistry students and with Dr. Taylor's style of teaching I was able to keep up with my peers.

    Course highlights:

    I have a deeper understanding of Chemistry thanks to Dr. Taylor, and now I can assist other students in general chemistry! The highlights were definitely thermodynamics and gas laws as those topics allowed me to view the world in a different perspective and truly think like a chemist.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell other students to take this course seriously regardless of their experience. I've seen students shrug off the course because it was a general course and they thought it was easy until the first test came.
