Welcome to CHEM 112!
This blended course will provide you with introductory knowledge of chemistry that can be used in your
upper-level studies at Queen’s, or in other aspects of your life. This course involves a large number of
students with a wide range of interests. Our goals are to ensure that you:
* acquire a basic understanding of fundamental chemical concepts
* are exposed to many areas of chemistry
* develop practical skills needed to undertake chemical research
* understand the value and application of chemistry in real-world scenarios
Some of you will pursue degrees in chemistry – we want to ensure you have the chemical knowledge
necessary to succeed in this endeavour. The rest of you will pursue degrees in which chemical concepts
appear to varying degrees – we want to ensure that you have the basic knowledge needed to recognize
when chemical concepts are needed in your studies and to apply those concepts.
To meet these goals, the course will cover a series of topics in the three broadly defined areas of:
* chemical structure and bonding
* chemical equilibria
* chemical kinetics
You will learn through several different modes, including:
* lectures
* labs
* tutorials
* online assignments
* assigned readings
To be successful in this course, you will have to stay on top of these various components. In particular,
completion of the online assignments and readings will be very important for successfully following the
lectures, tutorials and labs. You will undertake the online assignments and readings independently, so
you will have to be disciplined to ensure that you do not ‘fall behind’ in the course. The benefit of taking

a disciplined and steady approach to the research will be an increased comprehension of the material,
which will leave you better prepared for tests. Overall, we hope you enjoy the course and learn material
beyond that you’ve seen in high school, while developing skills and acquire knowledge that will serve
you throughout your post-secondary studies.
