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.


CHEM 125. General and Inorganic Chemistry: Laboratory.

Section 100.

Instructor(s): Benjamin P Reynolds (bpreyn@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: To be elected by students who are eligible for (or enrolled in) CHEM 130. No credit granted to those who have completed CHEM 211. (2). (NS). (BS). Laboratory fee ($60) required. May not be repeated for credit.

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. 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.

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 three one-hour examinations (Tuesday nights), and a final examination.

The student is expected to put in a minimum of six hours per week of actual work for the 7-week term for each credit elected. At the end of each term, three copies of a written report are submitted — one for the Advising Office, one for the student, and one for the faculty supervisor.

For a student to receive biochemistry credit for CHEM 218, the student must work on a research project supervised by a member of the biochemistry concentration research faculty and the project must be approved by a biochemistry advisor. Final evaluation of the research effort and the report, as well as the grade for the course, rests with the biochemistry research faculty member.

Research in an area of interest to, and supervised by, a departmental faculty member. The Chemistry Department encourages students to get involved with undergraduate research as early as possible. The Advising Office, 1500 Chemistry Building, provides information and help to students in meeting with faculty members to discuss research opportunities. Exact details such as nature of the research, level of involvement of the student, credits awarded and criteria for grading are individually determined in consultation with the faculty member. The student is expected to put in at least six hours a week of actual work for the 7-week term for each credit elected. At the end of each term, three copies of a written report are submitted — one for the Advising Office, one for the student, and one for the faculty supervisor.

For a student to receive Chemistry credit for CHEM 219, the student must work on a research project supervised by a faculty member of the Chemistry Department, either alone, or in collaboration with a colleague within the department, from another department, or from another school. This collaboration must be an ongoing one, and the student must receive direct supervision by all of the faculty who have agreed to sponsor the project. Final evaluation of the research effort and the report, as well as the grade for the course, rests with the faculty member from the Chemistry Department.
