S8159: Organic Chemistry in HSSP Spring 2014 (Mar. 01, 2014)
Did you take general chemistry (such as AP Chemistry) and love VSEPR theory, but want to learn more? Wish that your biology class (any level) explained how amino acids magically connect together to form polypeptides (which then fold into proteins)? Then this class is for you! We’ll study organic chemistry, including reactions involving alkyl halides, alkenes, alkynes, alcohols, aromatic rings, and carbonyl compounds. Class time will be a mix of lecture and problem solving (both synthesis and reaction mechanism questions). I’ll also provide some questions as homework; I won’t require you to do them, but you’ll likely learn a lot more if you practice! Throughout the class, principles and strategies will be emphasized over memorization, but there will be lots of material covered at a very fast pace!
