There are 57 scheduled meetings and of these 44 meetings will be lectures and 13 meetings will be TA-guided and -assisted collaborative leearning sessions in the Chemistry Computer Rooms. The 3 quizzes and the 3 tests will take up about 4.5 lecture periods. We will cover 13 chapters in 39 lectures; that means, there are on average 3 hours allocated for each chapter. We need to move fast and you need to study from the start to keep up with this pace! The following course schedule is preliminary and I might lengthen or shorten parts of the course as needed. You should read the assigned chapters before the lecture. We will omit parts of various chapters and appropriate announcements will be made in class.
