The purpose of Chemistry 211 and 212 is to introduce students to the properties, structure, and reactions of matter. Knowledge of chemistry is vital to understanding the fundamental and basic principles governing our natural world at the molecular level of organization, and to broadly and accurately interpret the importance of
science in human society. Chemistry 211 is the first semester course of a two semester sequence that provides a foundation of chemical concepts by (1) introducing the basics of chemistry (atomic structure, the nature and expression of chemical reactions, gas theory, and heat flow in chemical reactions), (2) describing the atomic and molecular properties of matter (atomic and subatomic structure, electronic configuration of atoms, bonding and geometry), and (3) defining important properties of the states of matter (esp. properties of liquids and solids). Chemistry 211 is a challenging course. If you approach it correctly and with a firm understanding of the demanding requirements, I hope you will find Chemistry 211 rewarding and enjoyable. The most important contribution to success in this course will be your own preparation in the form of study, which is achieved through solving the end-of-chapter questions in the textbook (a section on homework is provided below), online homework assignments and regularly attending lecture. This course is not designed to "weed you out" from your major, but it requires a firm commitment to hard work and critical thinking. Remember as you continue through your college experience that successful learning enables you to develop new knowledge and understanding through critical reasoning and synthesis.
