There will be 44 lectures which includes an introduction and three one-hour-exams. Hence, we need to cover the material of 15 chapters in 40 lectures; that means, there are less than 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. Suggested reading and exercises & self-study are specified in the last two columns. Self-study assignments will be added as the semester progresses. You should read the assigned chapters before the lecture. We will omit parts of various chapters and appropriate announcements will be made in class. And remember: Chemistry can be great fun but good things never come easy!
