    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor talks fast and is hard to keep up with. Teaches directly from the book. Very nice person

    Course highlights:

    Highlights are very good test review material.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do review test questions and be sure you understand material on power points.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    General Chemistry provides a look into the more exciting aspects of chemistry: chemical kinetics, chemical equilibrium, thermochemistry, chemical thermodynamics, electrochemistry, and organic and biological chemistry! The class covers the factors affecting reaction rates, such as chemical concentrations, temperature, and presence of catalysts; gives an understanding of what drives a reaction to form products or reactants in an equilibrium reaction and how to determine what "side" of a reaction an equilibrium will favor; teaches what chemicals constitute an acid or a base and how these acids and bases behave and react; imparts knowledge of important laws in chemistry involving energy and energy transfer, including the First, Second, and Third Laws of Thermodynamics; gives instruction on the relationship between oxidation-reduction reactions and voltaic cells, corrosion, and electrolysis; and takes a glimpse into the molecules that make up living organisms, namely carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids.

    Course highlights:

    I loved that this course was very math-involved. For example, rate laws are mathematical representations of the relationship between a reaction rate and chemical concentrations and orders. Equilibrium and solubility equations show the correlation between chemical concentrations and the extent to which an equilibrium will form reactants or products. PH changes involve calculating the quantity of H or OH ions produced in a reaction. Calorimetry demands product computations of specific heat, temperature change, and chemical mass; and electrochemistry necessitates addition of chemical reactions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the course textbook even if the professor covers all of the course content in class. This is a dense subject, so reading textbook material will help you better understand Dr. Howard's teachings. Complete as many practice problems as you can. As I said before, this course is highly math-involved, and the last thing you want is to perform poorly because of math errors. That being said, brush up on any math skills you need in this class if you have to, but do so in anticipation of a lesson so you manage to follow the calculations performed in class. If you have any questions about the practice problems, class homework, or teachings, seek Dr. Howard or a chemistry tutor.
