CHEM 2101. CHEMICAL INFORMATICS I. 1 Hour.
Developing quantitative understanding in chemistry relies heavily on models, from very crude and simple ideas to complex theoretical frameworks. This class aims to introduce students into models and modeling chemical phenomena that develop understanding of chemical processes. Working with observations and data, we develop the art of developing qualitative relations and explore their limitations. The class is delivered as a practical tour with hands-on practice. Good number skills, basic knowledge of coding and handling of computers is required. Prerequisite: (CHEM 1442 with a grade of C or better) and (MATH 1426 with a grade of C or better or Concurrent enrollment in MATH 1426 or Instructor's permission).
