Description

The EASE method teaches students how to attack organic chemistry reaction and mechanism problems in a logical and step-wise manner, and can be applied to almost any organic chemistry problem.  By clearly labeling and identifying the reaction participants and using our step-wise method to determine the reaction's path, you can quickly learn how to conquer any organic chemistry problem or mechanism, even problems you might have never seen before. This course is designed for all levels of organic chemistry student taking a college course in organic chemistry.  We have been teaching this course for almost 4 years now and have seen great results among all levels of student. 

Who is the target audience?
  • college students taking organic chemistry

This is the course introduction....it is brief, but to the point and gives the students a quick outline of the course. 

Preview 01:12

In this lecture, we teach you some of the basics that will be required before you can continue on and start to learn the EASE method. 

Preview 06:26

In this lecture, we discuss the first of the two most important parts of the organic reaction: The Electrophile. We will show you how to recognize them, which are the most prevalent, and what they will be attacked by.

Preview 09:37

In this lecture, we discuss the second of the two most important parts of the organic reaction: The Nucleophile. We will show you how to recognize them, which are the most prevalent, and how/what they will attack.

Electrophile/Nucleophile quiz
04:24

In this lecture, we discuss acids.  Acids can dramatically alter what happens in an organic reaction, so we will show you which acids you need to worry about, and how they will affect your reaction. 

1st Quarter: Acids
07:18

In this lecture, we will discuss bases.  This is the shortest lecture in the course, but will show you what bases will (and won't) do to your reaction. 

1st Quarter: Bases
03:31

Acid/Base quiz
04:06

In this lecture, we talk about sterics--those big and bulky groups that can block reaction sites and keep your organic reaction from occurring.

This is the first of a two-part lecture where we teach you to put the EASE method to use.  We show you several problems ranging from easy to difficult and teach you the EASE method step-by-step. 

3rd Quarter: Putting it all together part 1
10:29

This is the first of a two-part lecture where we teach you to put the EASE method to use.  We show you several problems ranging from easy to difficult and teach you the EASE method step-by-step. 

3rd Quarter: Putting it all together part 2
14:37

Final quiz
02:42

In this lecture, we put a bow on the EASE method by teaching you some tricks for using EASE and where not to use it.

Organic chemistry instructor

i have been interested in chemistry for my entire life. I have a BS in chemistry, an MS in organic chemistry, a PhD in bio-organic chemistry and have been tutoring for over 15 years. My graduate research was in synthetic organic chemistry where we created new and exciting pharmaceutical candidate drugs for testing in mice. The research was very well received, as I received several grants/fellowships and a number of awards. I also was an instructor at the university during that time, where I taught organic chemistry to undergraduate students. I really love teaching students and helping them to learn this difficult but really rewarding course. After taking this course, most students tell me they really loved it and are excited to take another more advanced chemistry course.
