Due to potential unforeseen obstacles, SI Leaders may encounter as they move to online delivery, some sessions may be modified, canceled, or suspended until in-person sessions can resume on campus.

Welcome to the SI page for CHEM 231 with Dr. Zhao (MWF 11:00-11:50). The best way to contact me is through this email:

SI is a free and voluntary review session held three times per week. It's a great opportunity to see the course content in new ways, practice, and learn from and with your peers. We will be doing worksheets throughout the semester to help facilitate your learning. I'll do my best to post worksheets/notes after sessions, but you'll get the most out of them if you actually attend! You can also sign up for email updates on this website to be notified of changes and resources when they are posted.
