The schedule below outlines each day's main topic(s). General reading assignments from the textbook are included at the top of each unit and suggested end-of-chapter problems from the textbook are listed for each day. Days with a quiz are shown using a bold italic font and days with an exam are shown using a plain bold font.

Unit I: Atomic Structure and the Periodic Table

In which we develop a model for the atom using measurements of the energies of its electrons and in which we explore the nature of the periodic table and how it encodes information about an element's properties and chemical reactivity. Our pathway through these topics will take us through material in Chapter 2 and Chapter 3. Suggested reading assignments and end-of-chapter problems are listed for most day.

Unit II: Structures of Inorganic Compounds

In which we consider the types of bonding in and geometry of inorganic compounds and consider the structure of solid-state materials. Our pathway through these topics will take us through material in Chapter 4, Chapter 5 and Chapter 10. Suggested reading assignments and end-of-chapter problems are listed for most day.

Unit III: Reactivity and Other Properties of Inorganic Compounds

In which we consider acid-base reactions, precipitation-solubility reactions, oxidation-reduction reactions, and metal-ligand complexation and dissociation reactions. Our pathway through these topics will take us through material in Chapter 7, Chapter 14, Chapter 15, Chapter 16, and Chapter 19. Suggested reading assignments and end-of-chapter problems are listed for most day.

Unit IV: Wrapping Up

In which we revisit the topics of Units I, II, and III, reviewing what we covered and extending our understanding of inorganic chemistry.
