Course Details

  • Enrollment requirements: This course is part of a series. Students are encouraged to take the course along with  CHEM 31B.
  • Non-Standard Course Schedule
  • Online Format: Synchronous - Lectures and labs will be conducted through live video conferencing through Zoom. To fully engage with the course, get immediate feedback and explanations, and interact with other students and teaching staff, attendance for all live lecture and lab sections are compulsory. To access these sessions, students will need a computer, tablet, or laptop with internet access and zoom capability as well as access to a scanner or a smart phone with a scanner app to submit PDFs of homeworks, quizzes and exams (a tablet on which a student can write on pdfs for submission would also work.). A printer may be helpful for printing templates but is not required. Guided laboratory experiences, including both hands-on and virtual simulations, will be conducted in real time with the TAs during your regular lab zoom sessions. To cover the cost of materials and/or lab simulations a lab fee of no more than $100 will be charged to students after the first day of class.
