CHEM 115a

Fall 2013 Course Faculty

Professor Hannah Reisler

Reisler Research Group

Course Overview

The CHEM 115a/115b sequence is intended to provide a rigorous introduction to important theories and concepts in the broad area of general chemistry.  CHEM 115a is an honors course, and therefore it will be taught at a conceptually, and mathematically, higher level than that of the corresponding non-honors course.  Topics will include an introduction to modern theories of atomic structure and chemical bonding; chemical reactions; stoichiometry; intro to organic chemistry; states of matter; solutions; acids and bases; and oxidation-reduction reactions.
