Peer Led Team Learning (PLTL)

Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL), offered in fall and spring, provides additional opportunity for Chemistry 111 and 113 students to further engage in current course topics while earning course credit. PLTL teams meet weekly for two hours. Students, in teams of 8-10, work collaboratively to solve challenging chemistry problems and participate in additional activities closely aligned with the General Chemistry Syllabus. Research shows that participants generally score 10% higher on exams than non participants.

To enroll in PLTL, search the Schedule of Classes for Chem 191: Wkshp in Gen Chem 111 or Chem 193: Wkshp in Gen Chem 113. Courses are one unit and offered Pass/Fail.
