Summer Courses at UPEI

The Chemistry Department at UPEI has an exciting pilot project happening this summer for First Year General Chemistry (Note that this pilot project was originally scheduled for Summer 2020, but had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic). For the Summer Semester, from July 5 until August 10, students will be able to enroll in CHEM 1110, General Chemistry I even if they have not taken Grade 12 Chemistry! (For the fall semester of General Chemistry, the Grade 12 Chemistry Prerequisite will once again be in place.) This is also a chance to complete one of their courses early, even if they have Grade 12 Chemistry. It would be appreciated if you could distribute the attached information to your Grade 12 students/teachers.

The course lectures and tutorial will be delivered synchronously online. The labs, which run for two weeks, will be a mixture of in person and virtual laboratory experiments.

While the Course Catalogue reads: Prerequisite: Grade XII Chemistry, Chemistry 0001 or the Permission of the Chair in special cases, students will be able to register in the summer session without these Prerequisites. For the summer semester only, a tutorial is being added to the regular coursework to meet the needs of students who do not have Grade 12 Chemistry. Also, given the condensed course timeframe the lecture time and lab times are accelerated and not reflected in the Catalogue description. Details from the Course Catalogue are as follows:

CHEM-1110 General Chemistry I (3 Credits)

This course emphasizes the fundamentals of chemistry. Topics include: atoms, molecules and ions; stoichiometry; mass relations; gases and their behaviour; electronic structure and the periodic table; covalent bonding and molecular geometry; and thermochemistry. The laboratory associated with this course stresses stoichiometry, qualitative analysis, atomic spectroscopy and thermochemistry. Three lecture hours a week; one three-hour laboratory period or tutorial a week Prerequisite: Grade XII Chemistry, Chemistry 0001 or the permission of the Chair in special cases.

NOTE: The prerequisite of Grade 12 Chemistry is NOT required for registration in this section of CHEM-1110 (Summer 2021).
