In this course, we will learn about chemical reactions, bonding, stoichiometry, orbitals, the periodic table, real and ideal gases, acid-base chemistry, solutions, equilibrium, oxidation-reduction, and introductory thermodynamics. bCourses has more course information: https://bcourses.berkeley.edu Unless noted otherwise, times are specified for the Pacific Time zone. Prerequisites None, but a year of high school chemistry is highly recommended. Course Objectives After successfully completing this course, you will be able to ● Use the periodic table to predict elements’ interactions. ● Balance chemical reactions and use stoichiometry. ● Use basic thermodynamic and gas laws. ● Recognize and predict bonding and intermolecular interactions. ● Quantify acid-base and oxidation-reduction equilibria. ● Analyze molecules in terms of orbitals and their interactions. Instructor and Contact Information, Office Hours, & Communication Course E-Mail [email protected] For most correspondence, writing to this address will help get the email to the person best placed to help you as quickly as possible. Email directed elsewhere could result in long delays. Faculty Instructors Prof. Eric Neuscamman Prof. Kristie BoeringPage 2 Head Graduate Student Instructors (Head GSIs) Christina Brancel Harrison Tuckman Office Hours Office hours are times that instructors have set aside for drop-in assistance with course material and other course matters. Try them, you’ll like them! Prof. Neuscamman’s office hours: Mondays 1:00pm - 2:00pm Location: 425 Latimer Hall Thursdays 11:00am - 12:00pm Location: 425 Latimer Hall Prof. Boering’s office hours: Mondays 5:10pm-7:00pm Location: 433 Latimer GSI office hours: In-person GSI office hours will be held in Bixby North, which is located on the north side of Latimer Hall on the ground floor and close to the entrance to the Pimentel lecture hall. Many Chem 1A office hours will be available between 8 am and 7 pm on weekdays. (Check bCourses under the “Office Hours” navigation link for specific times.) Note that students may attend the office hours of any GSI, not just those of the GSI who runs the discussion section in which they are enrolled. Some GSIs will also hold some virtual office hours via Zoom. Consult the “Office Hours” navigation link on bCourses for specific days, times, and zoom links. “Ed Discussion” Question & Answer Platform This course will make use of the “Ed Discussion” question and answer platform, using a link provided on bCourses. Ed Discussion is a wiki-style platform that allows questions to be asked at any time of the day or night and then answered as quickly as possible by both student peers and instructors and from which all students can benefit from seeing the answers. Something you’ll find in your time at Berkeley is that, if you have a question, then chances are very high that many other students in the class have the same question. This is true even for questions that you are worried might sound like “dumb” questions. In this course, no question is a ‘dumb’ question; the point is for you to know the material by the time you walk into the room to take an exam. If everyone knew the answer to everything already, we’d just give the exams the first day of classes. Rather, like office hours and discussion sections, Ed Discussion is intended to help you understand the material by the time you take the exam.Page 3 Course Materials and Technical Requirements Access to the Textbook, Online Learning System, iClicker Participation app, and Discussion Worksheets IMPORTANT NOTE ON TEXTBOOK PURCHASING: This course uses an online textbook, homework, and student response (or “iClicker”) system that will be automatically made available to students enrolled in the course through Berkeley’s Inclusive Access Program.
