Course description and aims

This course supports students in understanding the contents of "Organic Chemistry I" in the same quarter of the same Academic year.

Solving exercise problems, drawing organic structures and reaction mechanisms with curly arrows help students understand organic chemistry in detail. Therefore, this course provides the opportunity for students to draw organic molecules by hand as much as possible and supports their better understanding of basic organic chemistry.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Explain basic concepts of bonding, structures, and acid-base of organic compounds.
2) Draw reasonable structure, reaction, and resonance formulas of organic compounds.
3) Explain types and features of basic organic reactions.

Keywords

Structure and Bonding in Organic molecules, Acids and Bases, Polar and Non-polar Molecules, Bimolecular Nucleophilc Substitution, Unimolecular Nucleophilc Substitution, Pathways of Elimination, Alcohols, Ethers, Alkenes, Alkynes

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

In the first 20 minutes, the lecturer shows solutions for homework, and subsequently teaches main topics according to the course schedule. Then, students solve several exercise problems. In the last 10 minutes, commentary to the solution guide for the exercise problems is provided.

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
