Chemistry 60 Academic Excellence Workshop
|Instructor||Office Location & Hours|
|Carlos Quintanilla||QUINTACD8789@STUDENT.LACCD.EDU||Sci Room 305, Fridays from 12-2pm|
This workshop is intended to help students solidify their understanding of the concepts covered in their lecture by providing students problems that require the use of critical thinking and analytical skills. Students will be placed into groups where they will collaborate on methods that could be used to solve a problem. Students are encouraged to debate in a constructive manner about concepts and how they can be applied to problems.
Expectations and Goals
This workshop is not a replacement for lecture nor for homework; it is a complement to the course. Students are expected to have read the corresponding chapter in the textbook and have, at the very least, attempted some of the homework problems assigned in their class.
This workshop is meant to help students succeed in the course by providing students with a set of skills that are necessary for success in STEM courses. Students will also be encouraged to form study groups outside of the workshop. The end goal of this workshop is to teach students that they can learn anything so long as they put in the effort.
- Intro to Chemistry 5th ed. by Tro
