Students should obtain a copy of any General Chemistry textbook; we will be following closely Pearson’s Chemistry: The Central Science, 14e, Cengage’s Chemistry and Chemical Reactivity, 10e, and TopHat’s General Chemistry. Open educational resources (OER) are also available for those with limited finances.REGISTRATIONRegistration Procedure:If you are not completely registered for lecture and recitation, please send an email to: [email protected]. Important Dates:Wednesday, January 5, 2022: First day of course.Thursday, January 6, 2022: Last day to drop/add a course.Monday, January 17, 2022: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day observed—NO CLASSES.Thursday, January 19, 2022: Last day to resign a course with an “R” grade.Tuesday, January 25, 2022: Winter session ends and date of Final Examination.ABOUT THE COURSECourse Description:There is a fee associated with this class. Introduces fundamental concepts of chemistry, and surveys important chemical elements and their compounds. The first semester course of a two-semester sequence of Page 1 of 6general chemistry designed for students in sciences and engineering. Topics include stoichiometry, reactionsin solution, thermochemistry, atomic and molecular structure and bonding, gas laws, intermolecular forces, and phases of matter. Daily M-F LIVE Lecture access (10-11 AM) plus one 50-minute recitation daily (1:00-1:50 PM) will be presented. Lecture: Remote-Recorded Not Real-TimeThis course is taught remotely with all materials provided for on-demand access via UB Learns, with no in-person requirement (asynchronously), though there are daily LIVE sessions for lecture and recitation that can be viewed in real time or later when the video is posted.

Students should follow the schedule on the last page and watch each video episode (VE) by the date indicated in the schedule (p. 6). Video episodes roughly correlate with Chapter numbers from the textbook Chemistry: The Central Science; differences between the video episodes and the chapters are provided in the Course Documents folder of UBLearns as the file Text to Video Differences. Students should read the text in advance for a better understanding of the lecture, and are responsible for learning the material presented whether they view it or not.In addition to these required common video episodes, the instructor for the course will also be LIVE daily between 10-11 AM.
