Winter Term '01 Time Schedule for Chemistry.


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 1500 Chemistry to get into labs 2 hours after desired lab begins. Sections will be assigned there; student will take take enrollment printout to Chem Lab to check in immediately.

CHEM 125. General and Inorganic Chemistry: Laboratory.

Section EXAMS TUES, MAR 13 & APR 10, 6-8 P.M.

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

Credits: (2).

Lab Fee: Laboratory fee ($60) 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 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. TEXT: Collaborative Investigations in Chemistry, December 2000, Kerner and Penner-Hahn, Hayden McNeil Publishing (Required).

NOTE: Section 100 Students must also elect one 100 level dis/lab combination. Combinations are made in consecutive order and are linked. For example: 125-110 dis section and 125-111 lab section. Section 200 Students must also elect one 200 level dis/lab combination. For example: 125-250 dis section and 125-251 lab section.

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. TEXT: Chemistry: The Central Science, ISBN 0137797524, Brown, Lemay & Bursten, Prentice Hall (Required).

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.

Chemistry 216 builds on the experimental approach started in Chemistry 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.

    Among the topics covered are the thermodynamics of mixtures, the Flory-Huggins theory of polymer solutions, more modern theories of polymer solutions, the size and shape of macromolecular chains in solution and in bulk, and various techniques, like viscosity and light neutron scattering, for determining molecular size. In addition, rubber elasticity, polymer adsorption behavior, and polymer diffusion and scaling theories are covered. The course begins with a short, intense review of thermodynamics, but a grounding in the subject to at least the level of Chemistry 463 (Physical Chemistry) is required. The course grade is determined by the results of homework, two hourly exams, and the final exam. Besides the assigned text and the teacher's notes several original papers are also assigned for study.
