Many Small Assignments
Pretty easy, overall.
Really fun class, learned a lot, and it's basically a slightly more advanced version of high-school stoichiometry in chem class. Favourite class ever, and it inspired me to take analytical chem as my masters degree!
Labs were 4 hrs, but super super fun and worth it. Only need to write one lab report, the other 5 labs you just need to give you final numerical result on a sheet of paper so basically no homework other than the single weekly assignment. Course is basically stoichiometry and analytical techniques and theory, with an emphasis on application.
Hours per week:
Advice for students:
DO THE WEEKLY ASSIGNMENTS. They're a little tough, but if you focus on those and do them and practice them, the midterm and final are SO much easier and they'll be a breeze. When solving the problems, make sure your units cancel. If they cancel, you're doing it right. It's literally that simple. Also, you don't actually have to attend the class. He literally reads directly off the slides and I think I only went to the first class, the midterm, and the class before the final exam and still wound up getting like a 98 in the course. Math-heavy, but not complicated math. Nothing more complicated than graphing and regular algebra.
