IMPORTANT Chm 104 ONLINE ADVISORY:
STUDENTS enrolling in this section are EXTREMELY ENCOURAGED (but not required) to have successfully completed chemistry 101 (with a minimum B). Although a C from a chemistry 101 level course is the minimum requirement to take chm 104, more than 8-12 hours of studying time might be required due to missed concepts from chm-101 which you might need to review. If the above advisory criteria cannot be met, a traditional lecture Chm 104 at another time might be a better option.

ONLINE COMPONENT PC ADVISORY (MACS are not supported)
The CANVAS quizzes and videos are updated and supported using a PC internet explorer browser (Since i do not own a MAC, I cannot help you/troubleshoot problems that might occur with a MAC). In the past, students who had trouble with CANVAS quizzes and videos on their MACS will be required to call the help desk. PC's running internet explorer/Chrome on XP, Vista, or Windows 7 are the preferred computer. Use a MAC at your own risk should you decide to take this course.
