#### Outcome 1

Predict relative energies and locations of frontier molecular orbitals for organic molecules of intermediate complexity using linear combinations of atomic orbitals and hybridized orbital approaches.

#### Outcome 2

Perform calculations using *ab initio*, semi-empirical, density functional, and molecular mechanics approaches to predict energies and structures of ground and transition states.

#### Outcome 3

Use reaction kinetics, linear free energy relationships, isotope labeling, stereo-electronic effects and stereochemical outcomes to determine reaction mechanisms.

#### Outcome 4

Predict reaction mechanisms of major classes of organic reactions, including substitutions, eliminations, additions and radical reactions.

#### Outcome 5

Recognize the impact of non-covalent interactions in complex systems and reaction mechanisms.
