Description

In CHEM 230, students will be introduced to the physical-chemical principles underlying some of the major topics of inorganic and analytical chemistry. These include

  • Gases
  • Enthalpy, entropy, and Gibbs Free energy
  • Equilibrium
  • Phase transitions
  • Solutions (colligative properties and solubility)
  • Acid-base chemistry including titrations and buffers
  • Electrochemistry
  • A brief introduction to nuclear chemistry and chemical kinetics

Intended Audience:

This Chemistry course is intended as a fourth term in chemistry for science majors and pre-professional students, completing the two-year chemistry sequence required by, for example, the medical, dental, and engineering programs. Students who plan to continue beyond the fourth term in chemistry would typically enroll in CHEM 260/241/242 instead of CHEM 230; credit will not be given for both of these courses.

Class Format:

Students will engage in pre-class activities including videos of course content interspersed with short quizzes, and homework problems. CHEM 230 will meet in person three times a week in a team-based learning setting rather than a lecture. In class, students will work as a group to solve problems that practice the concepts that they were just presented with via video. The team-based learning time will be facilitated by a course instructor and assisted by the course GSIs. Discussion sections (not mandatory) will serve as an additional opportunity for problem-solving and as a time to ask questions. The course instructors will have scheduled office hours.
