Master chemistry with the help of your peers
Chemistry 105: The Principles of Chemistry is a challenging course you’ll be required to take early in your academic career as a chemistry student. The concepts you learn are essential to your success in the department.
To help ensure you master them, we offer Peer Led Team Learning (PLTL) workshops as part of the course.
These workshops are two-hour experiences that take the place of traditional recitations. During each workshop, you’ll work together with a small group of your classmates to practice challenging problems—but you won’t be taught by a professor. Instead you’ll be guided through the experience by a student who has recently taken—and succeeded in—Chemistry 105.
When you work with your peers to solve problems, you reinterpret ideas and concepts in alternative and unanticipated ways, increasing your understanding of the concepts and improving your learning outcomes.
These workshops also help you learn to work as a team—a skill desired by future employers.
