Why Take Organic Chemistry? Part 5

Educational Significance 

My colleague Peter Beak makes a valuable observation:
Too many students are unable to make the transition [from algorithmic to non-algorithmic approaches], and while not literally failing the course, miss the opportunity to develop an important professional and intellectual skill at this point. For those who are flexible and capable in problem solving, the course can be a turning point in intellectual development.
I am motivate to teach in a way that will help more of my students realize this turning point.


  1. Introduction to Chemistry Chemistry The branch of science which deals with the composition and properties of matter, changes in matter and the laws or principles which govern these changes is called Chemistry.

  2. This is a very intresting point of view, and have to recognize that you really convince me about the nessesity of organic chemistry.
