Learning Strategies for Organic Chemistry (CHM 2210)
This semester, the Center for Academic Success (CfAS) is offering a program called “Learning Strategies for Organic Chemistry” that has been recently restructured to more closely follow the class syllabus. Specific skills are necessary to be a successful student in chemistry. Learning how to visualize concepts in 3-D, paying close attention to detail, and knowing how to break words apart by prefixes, roots, and suffixes are just a few examples of how studying for organic is unique from all other courses. This program is facilitated by tutors who have been very successful in organic chemistry and are former students of FIU organic chemistry faculty. They have experienced the same frustrations as many organic chemistry students and are excited about sharing the learning strategies they have identified as most successful for the course. The following are expectations for participants in this program.
The CfAS will be eliciting feedback from you as students to refine the program to suit your needs as learners and the faculty’s needs as educators.
