Fall Academic Term, 2003 (September 2 - December 19)


The Chemistry Department has three types of courses available for students starting out toward careers in any of the sciences, engineering, or medicine. Students are placed into these courses according to the results of the tests in chemistry and mathematics that they take during orientation.

For students interested in the sciences, engineering or medicine, either CHEM 130 or CHEM 210/211 can be their starting point. Students who have had a strong course in high school (which may include AP credit in chemistry) are advised to start in CHEM 210 and 211, the laboratory course that accompanies it. CHEM 130 is recommended for all other students. Section 400 of CHEM 130 is reserved for students who would benefit from a smaller lecture section and more frequent contact with both senior faculty and teaching assistants.

Students who have had little or no laboratory work in high school should plan to elect CHEM125 with CHEM 130. Other students electing CHEM 130 may postpone laboratory to a subsequent term.

Laboratory Check-in

Check into labs on the first day they are scheduled. You must take a print-out of your class schedule to Lab Check-in. If you fail to appear, your space may be given to a waitlisted student 2 hours after the lab begins. You are at risk of having to waitlist for another lab.

CHEM 125, 211 and 216 Laboratory Waitlist

Prior to the first day of class, check for openings on wolverine access first. Fill out Waitlist Form in 1500 Chemistry. Go to 1500 Chemistry to get into labs 2 hours after desired lab begins. Sections will be assigned there; student will register into a lab there and take their schedule printout to lab to check in immediately.

Section 001.

Instructor(s): Penner

Prerequisites & Distribution: (3). (NS). (BS). May not be repeated for credit.

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: http://coursetools.ummu.umich.edu/2003/fall/aoss/105/001.nsf

This course considers the science needed to understand human-induced threats to the atmospheric environment, with special emphasis on the global changes that are taking place, or are anticipated. We will discuss the greenhouse effect (and its impact on climate), ozone depletion, the polar ozone holes, and urban air pollution. Some basic meteorology will be presented, including how climate changes might affect the frequency and severity of hurricanes and tornadoes. Students will have access to real-time weather information via computer. This lecture course is intended for non-science concentrators, and there are no prerequisites. Grades will be based on three one-hour exams (no final exam) and homework.

CHEM 125. General Chemistry Laboratory I.

Section 100, 200 — YOU MUST REGISTER FOR CHEM 125 AND 126 AT THE SAME TIME WITH THE SAME LECTURE FOR BOTH. (See NOTE below for example.)

Instructor(s): Nancy Konigsberg Kerner (nkerner@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: To be elected by students who are eligible for (or enrolled in) CHEM 130, and concurrent enrollment in CHEM 126. (1). (NS). (BS). May not be repeated for credit. Credit is not granted without concurrent enrollment in and completion of CHEM 126. No credit granted to those who have completed CHEM 211. Laboratory fee ($80) required.

Credits: (1).

Lab Fee: Laboratory fee ($80) required.

Course Homepage: http://www.umich.edu/~chem125/

This laboratory course can be elected with, or following, CHEM 130. It is intended that students planning to enroll in CHEM 130 who have had little or no previous chemistry laboratory enroll concurrently in CHEM 125 and CHEM 126. The focus of this guided inquiry laboratory is to foster critical thinking that allows students to design, perform and interpret experiments. In addition, the student acquires technical skills that are required for further advancement in experimental sciences. Although an ability to collect and analyze data in a quantitative manner is developed, the emphasis of the course is to provide a qualitative understanding of the basic concepts of chemistry. This is accomplished by demonstrating that chemical principles are derived from experimental data. The goal is to provide students both with a more accurate picture of the scientific process and also with skills that are relevant to solving real life problems. Much of the course work is done as a member of a team. Student groups each explore the same problem with each group using different reagents and/or conditions. A networked computer system is used to collect, pool and summarize the largely qualitative class data. Student groups address questions which require them to organize the class data using commercial graphing software. Group answers are presented in discussion. The format of the course is organized into three sections. Pre-laboratory reading and questions are completed prior to each multi-period project laboratory. A one-hour lecture provides support for the topics and problems that will be investigated in the laboratory. The second component is performance in the laboratory where team data are shared, analyzed, and evaluated. The third begins in the first hour following completion of each multi-period project lab where groups communicate their findings during a student-led discussion. There are two one-hour written examinations, scheduled for Tuesday evenings, that constitute 30% of the grade. The remaining 70% of the grade is based on the points acquired in laboratory and discussion.

TEXT: Collaborative Investigations in Chemistry, Konigsberg Kerner & Penner-Hahn, Hayden McNeil (Required).

NOTE: Section 100 — Students must also elect one 100 level dis/lab combination and a matching Chem 126 lecture. Combinations are made in consecutive order and are linked. For example: CHEM 125.110 DIS section and CHEM 125.111 LAB section and CHEM 126.100 LEC.

Section 200 — Students must also elect one 200 level DIS/LAB combination and a matching Chem 126 lecture. For example: CHEM 125.250 DIS section and CHEM 125.251 LAB section and CHEM 126.200 LEC.

This General Chemistry course is intended to satisfy the one-term chemistry requirement for students interested in science, or as a natural science elective for non-science concentrators. This course may also be used as the first term in a four or more term chemistry sequence (probably CHEM 130, 210/211, 215/216, 260/241/242, etc.) for science concentrators and pre-professional students.

CHEM 130 provides an introduction to the major concepts of chemistry, including the microscopic picture of atomic and molecular structure, periodic trends in the chemical reactivity, the energetics of chemical reactions, and the nature of chemical equilibria. Students will be introduced to the fundamental principles of modern chemistry, the descriptive chemistry of the elements, and to the underlying theories that account for observed macroscopic behavior. In CHEM 130, students will learn to think critically, examine experimental data, and form generalizations about data as chemists do. CHEM 130 will meet three times each week in lecture sections with senior faculty (the intensive section will have four lectures a week), and once a week in small group discussion classes led by graduate student instructors. Lecturers and graduate student instructors will have scheduled office hours for after-class help, and computerized study aids will be available to all students. Course grades will be determined from discussion class evaluation, three one-hour examinations (Tuesday nights), and a final examination.

CHEM 216 builds on the experimental approach started in CHEM 211. Students participate in planning exactly what they are going to do in the laboratory by being given general goals and directions that have to be adapted to fit the specific project they will be working on. They use microscale equipment, which requires them to develop manual dexterity and care in working in the laboratory. They also evaluate the results of their experiments by checking for identity and purity using various chromatographic and spectroscopic methods. Students will be expected to keep a laboratory notebook that will serve as the basis for their laboratory reports.

This is the second of the three-term physical chemistry sequence CHEM 260/461/463. CHEM 461 builds on the introduction to quantum mechanics that was given in CHEM 260. Students will use the Schrödinger Equation in 1-, 2-, and 3 dimensions to solve exactly a series of important chemical problems including the harmonic oscillator, the rigid rotor, and the hydrogen atom. Group theory is introduced as an aid for understanding spectroscopic selection rules. Advanced spectroscopy, including transition probabilities, normal vibrational modes, and photoelectron spectroscopies are introduced and then used to deduce molecular structure. The valence-bond and molecular orbital theories of chemical bonding are discussed, and methods for performing quantum chemical calculations, including variational and perturbation methods, are introduced. The quantum mechanics of spin and angular momentum are discussed and used to interpret magnetic resonance spectra.

This is the first of a two course sequence in Chemical Biology. The intent of these courses is to introduce students to the breadth of material contained within the inherently interdisciplinary "Chemical Biology" arena. The course has been designed to cross the traditional disciplinary boundaries of Chemistry. Thus, rather than having traditional bioorganic, bioinorganic, and biophysical sections, the course will focus on case studies chosen so that over the course of the two-term sequence, all of the key concepts in the traditional chemical disciplines are discussed.
