Description

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 majors. This course may also be used as the first term in a four or more term chemistry sequence (probably CHEM 130, 210/211, 215/216, 260/241/242, etc.) for science majors and pre-professional students.

CHEM 130 provides an introduction to the major concepts of chemistry, including atomic and molecular structure, periodic trends in the chemical reactivity, basic reaction principles and stoichiometry, the energetics of chemical reactions, and the nature of chemical equilibria. Students will develop and exercise quantitative reasoning and problem-solving skills.

SECTION 100 — STUDENTS MUST ELECT DISCUSSION SECTION 101-199.

SECTION 200 — STUDENTS MUST ELECT DISCUSSION SECTION 201-299.

SECTION 400 — Comprehensive Studies Program The intensive lecture section (Section 400) is intended for those students who would benefit from a smaller lecture section (maximum 100 students), more class time, and more opportunities for feedback. Permission of the CSP office is needed for enrollment in that section. This section includes an extra hour of weekly class time. STUDENTS MUST ELECT DISCUSSION 401-499.

Any questions regarding enrolling for this course should be directed to the Chemistry Student Services Office at chemundergrad@umich.edu.

Course materials:

CHEM 130 will require an online homework system and textbook. We strongly recommend waiting until the Chem 130 Canvas site is published before purchasing the homework and textbook.  The homework and electronic textbook are bundled together for a discounted price of $65 when purchased directly from the publisher via the Chem 130 Canvas site. An optional loose-leaf print version of the textbook is also available for an additional $30. The textbook is "Chemistry: Structure and Properties", 2nd Edition, by Nivaldo J. Tro. (ISBN: 9780134553313). Students will register for the online homework through the course Canvas site.

Students need a reliable high-speed internet connection to participate in this course. Course information and assignments, including announcements, lecture outlines, homework, quizzes, videos, and Zoom-based office hours will be organized and delivered on Canvas.

Lectures:
Lectures will occur primarily in person at times and locations scheduled on Wolverine Access.  

Discussions:
Small group discussions will be held in person at times and locations scheduled on Wolverine Access. Each week, there will be a graded quiz assignment that students attending their discussion section will complete during the discussion time. Students who choose not to attend may complete this weekly quiz assignment on their own.

Quizzes and homework:
Quizzes and homework will be completed online via Canvas.

Exams:
Exams are tentatively set to take place in person. Exams are held in the EVENINGS during the semester. The final exam is the MORNING of Monday, April 25th from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM.

Office hours:
The instructional team will hold a combination of weekly office hours, some in person and some virtual, to answer student questions outside of class. 

NOTE: The course format is subject to change if a COVID-19 situation arises.
