    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is definitely an important course if you're any sort of science major. It gives you a basic understanding of chemistry and establishes a foundation to build up from in other related or following this course.

    Course highlights:

    Again, this course is essentially a beginning chemistry course. You'll learn about the basics of chemistry, like atoms, the periodic table, characteristics of elements, chemical reaction, balancing chemical equations, and reduction-oxidation (redox) reactions, among other things. Again, this course is fundamental to establishing a foundation to continue as a science major.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely take notes and try to memorize certain characteristics of the periodic table, like the groups, periods, and how the elements are separated (like metals and nonmetals; or halogens (Group 7A), alkali metals (Group 1A), alkaline earth metals (Group 2A), and transition metals (Group 1-7B) for example). Knowing these characteristics will become helpful when working with the periodic table because it makes identifying elements a lot easier. There can also be a lot of math associated with it, and understanding and remembering how that works will be pretty dang important. Also, scientific calculators are very helpful to have.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    fun class, challenging, lots of experiments

    Course highlights:

    I loved how we had one lab minimum scheduled every week. I learned that I can recognize something and understand it better just by doing a simple experiment.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    study. study. study. Although it was a super fun class, I spent more time outside of the class studying for the material we were doing the next day to understand it better. if you don't understand one thing, chances are you wont understand multiple things from then on because it's all accumulative.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Personally, I think science is cool because it's literally what is. Learning the makeup of chemicals, and how they do what they do, knowing the properties of different compounds, is exciting to me! I like knowing where electrons hang out around a nucleus, and how they get from energy level to energy level!

    Course highlights:

    Part of this course was lab work, which I always enjoyed. Mostly because of my lab group, when we didn't know the answer to a question on the lab report, it was so fun to all discuss our guesses and how we backed it up in our own minds, then to hear the professor explain to us the right answer and see what elements of all of our guesses fit with the correct answer.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to take notes, and review them. A lot. Spend time in the library going over concepts until you could teach them to someone else, that's how you know you've got it down. Don't ever be afraid to ask questions, or for further explanation from your professor. They're really smart, I know, and intimidating, but you can learn so much from them. Take advantage of tutoring centers, office hours, or extra help offered if you need it!
