Section Description

This is a one-semester survey of organic chemistry and biochemistry, with about equal time spent on the two disciplines.

The biochemistry portion covers essential biological molecular structures and systems such as carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids.

Section Expectation

This course is solely a lecture format. In addition to attending lecture, students should expect to spend 3-4 hours per week in consistent study and problem-solving. Solving recommended text problems is the best way to do this.
