Class Objectives
/Class Outline
Through this course, students will acquire chemical knowledge needed for teaching by learning the fundamental teaching contents of chemistry in junior high schools and high schools from the academic aspect. This course will provide the students with explanations of particularly the fundamentals of organic compounds and what should be considered for teaching the subject.

<Part 1 Structure of Organic Compounds>
Lesson2 Structure-Reactivity Relationship of Organic Compounds
Lesson3 Stereoisomerism(1): Structural Isomerism & Stereoisomerism
Lesson4 Stereoisomerism(2): Conformation
Lesson5 Stereoisomerism(3): Configuration (Enantiomer & Disastereomer)
Lesson6  What We Should Do To Decide The Structure Of Organic Compounds? (1): UV/Vis & IR
Lesson7  What We Should Do To Decide The Structure Of Organic Compounds? (2): NMR & Mass

<Part 2 Organic Reactions>
Lesson8  Radial Reaction: Radical Halogenation of Alkanes
Lesson9  Nucleophilic Substitution: Hydrolysis of Haloalkane
Lesson10  Elimination:Dehydration of Alcohol
Lesson11  Aromatic Electrophilic Substitution: Preparation of Benzene Derivatives
Lesson12  Aromatic Nucleophilic Substitution: Preparation of Phenol Derivatives
Lesson13  Electrophilic Addition: Addition to Multiple Bond
Lesson14  Nucleophilic Addition: Reactivity of Carbonyl Compounds

Lesson15  Final Exam

Reports:There will be report assignments every several lessons.
Exam:There will be a final exam after all the lessons are done.

In this lecture, students are expected to learn the fundamentals of structure, reactions, and properties of organic compounds based on Chapter 6 of the textbook.

Suggestions on
Preparation and
The lecture will look at the high school curriculum of Chemistry for contrast. Please refer to school textbooks of high school Chemistry. The following shows corresponding page numbers of the textbooks for your preparation and review of the lessons:
Structure and Properties of Organic Compounds (Lessons 1-6):Textbook pp.108-130
Organic Reactions (Lessons 7-14):Textbook pp.130-138 
Requirements The prerequisite of this course is  Scientific Literacy of Physics I & II. 
Grading Method Students will be evaluated based on attendance, commitment to reports, and knowledge and understanding level in a scheduled exam. 
Practical Experience  
Summary of Practical Experience and Class Contents based on it  
Please fill in the class improvement questionnaire which is carried out on all classes.
Instructors will reflect on your feedback and utilize the information for improving their teaching.
