A COURSE OF STUDY IN CHEMISTRY.
HELWIG, G. ALFRED; AND OTHERS
AN ELECTIVE CHEMISTRY COURSE IS DESIGNED TO BE EQUALLY VALUABLE TO BOTH FUTURE SCIENTISTS AND NONSCIENTISTS. THE EMPHASIS IS PLACED ON FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS AND RELATIONSHIPS RATHER THAN ON DESCRIPTIVE AND APPLIED CHEMISTRY. MAJOR OBJECTIVES ARE--TO SURVEY THE PRESENT STATE OF CHEMICAL KNOWLEDGE, TO EXAMINE IN SOME DEPTH CENTRAL CHEMICAL CONCEPTS INCLUDING STRUCTURE, BONDING, AND ENERGY CHANGES, TO ACQUAINT STUDENTS WITH THE EXPERIMENTAL METHOD AND ITS PARTICULAR APPLICATION IN CHEMISTRY, AND TO APPRECIATE THE POWER OF MODERN CHEMISTRY IN HELPING MAN CONTROL HIS ENVIRONMENT. CHEMISTRY UNITS OUTLINED ARE--FUNDAMENTALS OF CHEMISTRY, PERIODIC RELATIONSHIPS, MOTION AND DYNAMIC EQUILIBRIUM, INORGANIC REACTIONS, ORGANIC REACTIONS, AND NUCLEAR REACTIONS. EACH STUDY GUIDE CONSISTS OF--AN INTRODUCTORY PAGE WHICH EXPLAINS THE CONTENT AND INTEGRATING IDEAS WHICH FORM THE FRAMEWORK OF THE UNIT, A CHART OF SPECIFIC SUGGESTIONS FOR TEACHING THE UNIT, AND RESOURCE SHEETS OF VARIOUS KINDS. SOME OF THE RESOURCE SHEETS GIVE SUBJECT MATTER NEEDED TO DEVELOP THE UNIT BUT NOT AVAILABLE IN THE TEXTBOOK. OTHERS PRESENT DETAILED DIRECTIONS FOR DEMONSTRATIONS AND EXPERIMENTS. THE FINAL RESOURCE SHEET PROVIDES SUGGESTIONS FOR INDEPENDENT STUDY IN EACH UNIT.
