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 Chem. 125 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 at CRISP first. Fill out Waitlist Form in 1500 Chemistry. Go to Room 1706 Chemistry to get into labs 2 hours after desired lab begins. Sections will be assigned there; student will take override to Chem Lab to check in immediately. You will be registered automatically into the section(s) shown on the override.

Chem. 120. First Year Seminar in Chemistry.

Section 100 Questions and Advances in Chemistry... Big and Small

Instructor(s): Robert Kuczkowski (kuczkows@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: Only first-year students, including those with sophomore standing, may pre-register for First-Year Seminars. All others need permission of instructor. (3). (NS).

First-Year Seminar

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

These seminars, which are restricted to first-year students, are small-group classes (approximately 20 students) taught by regular and emeritus faculty. They provide a stimulating introduction to the intellectual life of the University by exposing new students to engaging subject matter and by offering the opportunity for active participation that a small class can afford. It is hoped that students who take a seminar will find in it a sense of intellectual and social community that will make the transition to a large university easier. The seminar topics will vary from semester to semester. These seminars are intended to give students the opportunity to explore the possibilities of chemistry.This course is intended strictly for first-year students.Three one-hour sessions per week.

Students will be expected to participate in classroom discussions, and they will be evaluated by a combination of written exams, oral exams, and term papers. The proportion of each type of work may vary from term to term.

We will explore various chemistry-related topics and some from physics and biology ranging from the universe (very big) to the atom (very small). Our perspective will be varied including historical, biographical, philosophical, but usually explicatory (i.e., "the science"). We will discuss topics from Seven Ideas That Shok the Universe (Spielberg and Anderson), Why Aren't Black Holes Black? (Hazen), Braving the Elements (Gray, Simon and Trogler) and associated readings.

This laboratory course can be elected with, or following, Chem. 130. It is intended that students planning to enroll in Chem. 130 that 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.

Course Homepage: http://www.umich.edu/~chem130/

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 130, 210/211, 215/216, 260/241/242, etc.) for science concentrators and pre-professional students.

Chemistry 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.

The intensive lecture section (Section 400) is intended for those students who would benefit from a smaller lecture section (maximum 100 students) and more lectures so that the pace is slower and there is more feedback. Placement by LS&A testing or permission of the Chemistry Department (1500 Chemistry) is needed for enrollment in this section.

For example, discussion can include the relation between oxidation and reduction and acidity, periodic trends in acids and bases, the relation of hard and soft ideas to molecular orbital theory, periodic trends in standard reduction potentials, the relation of molecular structure to conductivity and magnetism. The key topics to be covered in this portion of the course include acid-base chemistry, theories of bonding, periodic properties and d-metal complexes. The course goes on to cover additional topics selected from issues in catalysis, bioinorganic chemistry, structure-property relations, solid state chemistry, organometallic chemistry, kinetics of organometallic reactions, f-block compounds, electron deficient clusters, and quantum models of structure and bonding. The course has three lectures per week. There will be 1-3 exams and a final. Weekly homework problems will be assigned.

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.
