Welcome to Chemistry 201 taught by Prof. J. Walker Fall 2019.
Chemistry 201 - General Chemistry I Course Catalog Description
Topics include the periodic table of the elements, atomic structure, basic concepts of quantum theory, bonding, stoichiometry of compounds and reactions, thermochemistry, the gaseous state, basic concepts of the liquid and solid states, solutions, acids and bases. Writing assignments, as appropriate to the discipline, are part of the course.
Prerequisite: Completion or concurrent enrollment in Mathematics 140 or higher and either Grade of C or better in Chemistry 121 or one year of high school chemistry.
4 lecture and 4 lab hours per week in a 16 week semester. 5 credit hours
Students may take this course to meet concentration or elective requirements for an Associate Degree, to fulfill requirements for a career occupational degree, or to prepare for other careers in the physical sciences or healthcare professions.
Note: Chemistry 201 has an IAI code of CHM 911. You can learn more about IAI by visiting iTransfer.
This fall semester I am teaching Chemistry 201 HJL. It meets on Tuesday and Thursday from 12:30 to 4:15pm. It is in room S314 on Tuesday and in room S322 (laboratory) on Thursday. The textbook is: Chemistry The Central Science by Brown and LeMay 14th edition but you may find it cheaper to purchase an earlier edition (12th or 13th) or even to take the course without buying a textbook as there are many resources on the Internet.

Currently I'm an adjunct professor at Wright College, City Colleges of Chicago. I also teach English as a Foreign Language at Education First in Chicago. I've been teaching for over 35 years. I love to learn and share my enthusiasm for learning. I have many interests. I enjoy learning about science, gardening, cooking and baking, linguistics and languages, drawing and painting, and literature. I believe we learn best when we are curious, excited, interested and engaged in our own learning processes.
