ACE Chemistry Teams

ACE Chemistry teams are very small-group tutorials for Chemistry 1A and 1B that meet for ninety minutes each week with a dedicated tutor who also attends the relevant lectures. Chemistry Teams differ from CLAS Chemistry 1A and 1B Groups because they are limited to seven participants and because they include academic skills exercises relevant to these classes as well as a focus on concepts and difficult problems. Because the groups are small, tutors encourage active participation and teamwork. Students who want extra help in chemistry or who work well when they can brainstorm with their fellow students or who want to improve their chemistry study skills are encouraged to join an CLAS ACE Chemistry Team in addition to a CLAS Chemistry Group which will provide substantial extra practice with problems.
