Section Description

‘Math Skills for Chemistry’ is a 1-credit preparatory course that would be of interest to students who will be taking Chem 31 and Chem 32 during the summer semesters. This course will run concurrently with Chem 31 and Chem 32 and support the material taught in those courses, with a special focus on the math and calculations that are necessary for success in General Chemistry topics. This course may also be of interest to students wishing to prepare for Chem 23, 31, or 32 during the Fall and Spring semesters. Students will build critical thinking skills through the process of becoming independent problem-solvers. We will focus on the fundamental mathematical concepts needed to succeed when undertaking core chemistry courses. There will be a comprehensive study of quantitative relationships in chemical reactions. Topics include stoichiometry, acid-base chemistry, units and dimensions, ideal gases, and data manipulation using Excel. There is no laboratory component to this course. The course will primarily involve covering material from the textbook and going over problems. There are no mid-term or final exams. Students will be graded on weekly quizzes, homework and group work. The grading policy is as follows: Attendance and group work (50%); Homework (20%); In-class quizzes (30%). The following text will be used on the course: Text: ‘Calculations in Chemistry’ 2e (Dahm); [ISBN: 978-0-393-28420-1].

Section Expectation

Lectures will be each Wednesday from 6-8 pm. In addition to the time spent in lecture, students are expected to commit to a minimum of 3 hours a week studying course materials and completing homework assignments.
