|UALR Chem 1300
This Site is Under Construction
This site has learning resources for the UALR Chem 1300 course taught by Dr. Robert E. Belford. Please note this is a Chemistry Prep course for Science Majors who wish to take General Chemistry. If you are a Nursing Major you should take Chem 1400. If you are looking for an Introductory to Chemistry Class for non-science majors you should take chem 1409. Although I am attempting to post as much material online as I can, this is not an online course. You need to attend class and should check the class bulletin board outside of SCLB 277 for up-to-date keys and notices. Please contact Dr. Robert E. Belford at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions concerning this site.
Introduction There are several types of resources posted on this class.
1.Interactive Quizzes: These were created with an old VB-6 program and many quizes have hints for which you need to disable Pop-Up Windows. They should work in Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers. Each Quiz has a unique number. If you email a question you must include the number on the actual quiz page so I can identify which quiz you are referring to. The numbers indicate the order in which they were created for a general chemistry course and some quizzes are missing because we are not covering that material. You need to correlate the quiz's description with your class notes to identify the order in which you need to practice these. Also, many of the quizzes of quicktime videos embedded in them.
2.Lecture Worksheets: These are copys of handouts for problems we do in and out of class. Keys for many of these are also posted. You also need to do all of the assigned homework problems.
3.Pencasts: These are experimental pencasts using a livescribe pulse pen. This material is under development and I am not happy with the way they are currently posted, but they are very useful. Be sure to turn your speakers on.
Section 1: Algebra Review, Significant Figures and Scientific Notation
1.A Interactive Quizzes:
I.B Lecture Outlines:
a. Algebra Review:
b. Arithmetic with Scientific Notation and SI Prefixes:
c. Percent Calculations
d. Calculations Involving Conversion Factors or Temperature Conversions Please note that the pen-capture software has some flaws and some of the penstrokes are not presented as they were performed. Like when I cancelled out a unit, it is now showing that occuring as I write the unit, not afterwards. You need to follow the logic of the audio file.
Section II: Atoms, Elements and Isotopes
II.A Interactive Quizzes: Note, these are links to interactive quizzes in the Chem 1402 General Chemistry Class and the numbers are correlated to the general chemistry text.
II.B Lecture Outlines These are copies of my lecture slides and class worksheets
II.C Pencasts: These are solutions to the In-Class activities: Exercises on Fractions and Isotopic Composition
||Solve for average isotopic mass|
||Given mass and % composition of one isotope, calculate mass of other for 2 component system|
||Given masses calculate % composition for 2 component system|
III. Compounds, Formulas and Nomenclature
IIIA: Interactive Nomenclature Quizzes
IIIB: Nomenclature Handouts and Keys
IV: Chemical Reactions, Balancing Equations and Predicting Products
IV.A Interactive Quizzes: Note, these are quizzes from the Chem 1402 General Chemistry Class. There numbers correlate to the general chemistry web site and you should use the number when asking any questions as that way I can easliy identify and find the quiz you are asking about. Some of these have quicktime videos embedded in them which you should look at if you want to get a real feel for what is going on. Once again, these are topic specific quizzes and you need to look at the description to identify the ones you want to use.
IV.B Lecture Worksheets:
Section 5: Stoichiometry Reactions: Balancing Equations and Predicting Products
5.A Interactive Quizzes: Note, these are quizzes from the Chem 1402 General Chemistry Class. There numbers correlate to the general chemistry web site and you should use the number when asking any questions as that way I can easliy identify and find the quiz you are asking about. Some of these have quicktime videos embedded in them which you should look at if you want to get a real feel for what is going on. Once again, these are topic specific quizzes and you need to look at the description to identify the ones you want to use.
Section V: Reaction Stoichiometry
Section 5: Thermochemistry and Gas Phase Reactions
5.A Interactive Quizzes:
5.B Lecture Worksheets
