Summer Enrichment Chemistry Workshop
The Summer Enrichment Chemistry Workshop (SECW) is a six-week intensive engagement focusing on foundational skills needed to succeed in General College Chemistry I (Chem 122). The workshop will emphasize understanding chemical vocabulary and concepts and then combining these concepts with basic math skills to solve a variety of problems. Topics such as metric units, proportional reasoning, the mole concept, chemical stoichiometry, solutions, and chemical reactions will be explored. Students who successfully complete this workshop will be eligible for a revised placement into General College Chemistry I (Chem 122). All workshop students will become familiar with online homework programs and electronic resources used in Chemistry at UIC.
Students are required to purchase an e-textbook at e-homework program priced at $72. Students who remain enrolled in Chem 101 Fall 2020 will not have to purchase these materials again.
