    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a must for someone who needs to take general chemistry but had a traumatic experience with it in high school (like me) or whose math skills are not razor sharp. This course is designed to prepare you for the material covered in CHM 2045 while sharpening your math skills in the process. It is pretty common course at UF for anyone in the sciences so there are many opportunities to get help and take it in class or online.

    Course highlights:

    You learn everything that is covered for the first test in CHM 2045. A heavy emphasis is placed on converting units, ensuring you are are proficient in the math skills you will need to succeed in any other chemistry classes. Topics covered include: conversions, subatomic particles, energy, specific heat, the periodic table, electron configurations, naming polyatomic compounds, stoichiometry, chemical reactions, and acids and electrolytes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't ignore the math. Yes you will be required to know certain chemistry terms and processes, but the whole point of this course is to make sure you have the skill set to succeed in more difficult courses and if you can't do the math you won't be able to succeed. On the tests and quizzes you won't be asked to name the specific electron configuration of something, you will be asked bug picture questions that will show your ability to analyze a problem and of course do the math.
