This is a set of PowerPoint slides I put together for a brief presentation and discussion with summer research students in our department about good record keeping and data management practices.
Descriptive chemistry of the main group elements with some emphasis on the non-metals. Transition metal compounds: aspects of bonding, spectra, and reactivity; complexes of n-acceptor ligands; organometallic compounds and their role in catalysis; metals in biological systems; preparative, analytical, and instrumental techniques.
In searching for a way to review topics before exams, I was informed about this powerpoint template which is macro'd to be operated as a realistic Jeopardy game. The site for the original author of the macro is:

Our CHEM145 is offered once every two years: TR 75 min synchronous lectures, F 4 h in-person lab.
Creating Word files, pdfs, and PowerPoint files in an accessible way addresses equity in the classroom. These web resources are focused on how to create materials for your courses that will be more accessible. There are also some checklists to consult as you are creating materials for your courses (and LOs for this website!) to ensure they meet some basic accessibility guidelines.
*Note that some of the materials link to or refer to resources specific to the University of Mary Washington, but you should be able to find similar resources at your institution.*
