Section Description

Students will learn key topics in Chem031 that include, but are not limited to Matter, Stoichiometry, Reactions, Gas Laws, Thermochemistry, Quantum Theory, Atomic and Molecular Structure, Electronic Configurations, Bonding and Intermolecular forces.

Section Expectation

The class is split into two parts, a lecture portion and a lab portion. The lecture section holds approximately 200 students and utilizes notability presentations, multimedia models and demonstrations for understanding of key conceptual and mathematical processes involving matter and its transformations. The lab sections holds approximately 22 students and allows the student to physically conduct experiments within the key topics presented in lecture. Small review sessions are also conducted during lab time to review important lecture concepts.


The lecture section of the course is evaluated with three mid-semester exams, 10 homework quizzes and one cumulative final exam. Each mid-semster exam and homework quizzes counts for 125 points each. The cumulative final exam counts for 250 points, for a total of 750 points from the lecture portion of the course. The student is allowed to replace their lowest mid-semester exam with their cumulative final exam grade only if their final exam grade is higher than their lowest mid-semester exam grade. The lab section of the course is evaluated with weekly attendance, pre-lab report, pre-lab quiz, and full lab report for a total of 250 points. The grade in the class is the sum of both the lecture and lab points divided by 1000 points.
