  • Welcome

    Please become familiar with this website as I will post course notes here, assignment information, test information and homework. You will also find the course outline which explains the material being covered in this course. Chemistry has a strong mathematical component and it is important to practice homework problems regularly to become more comfortable with chemical analytical analysis.
