Example text

Resources are available to help develop this skill. (8) There is value in having students write reports in the same format as a manuscript for a scientific journal, but this is time consuming and you might choose to require briefer reports. With the pressure to find enough time for all of the topics in the lecture course, you might decide to move some topics from the lecture course into the laboratory course. For example, you might not include polymer chemistry in the lecture course, but might include a polymer experiment in the laboratory, along with some discussion of polymer chemistry.

You might need to write a new grant proposal. You have other assignments such as student advising, committee work, department administrative work, and so on. However, you should not place your physical chemistry course at the bottom of your list of priorities. The Approach of the Course You will have to decide whether to use a mathematical approach or a more conceptual or heuristic approach. The students in the United States of America are now less well prepared in mathematics than were the students of a few decades ago.

If a separate one-semester course cannot be offered, it is probably better for these students to place thermodynamics and dynamics in the first semester. I have seen one college catalog that specifies one semester of the standard physical chemistry course for biochemistry majors. This requirement was probably set up when thermodynamics and dynamics were taught in the first semester. However, the physical chemistry course at this college now has quantum mechanics and spectroscopy in the first semester, leaving the biochemistry students without instruction in thermodynamics and dynamics.
