will we not be doing any more readings out of the textbook for the rest of the quarter??

The rest of the material should be covered in the Introduction to Chemistry book we bought along with the course reader. There doesn't seem to be any other readings assigned from the textbook.

I think the readings will come from the green o-Chem course reader

Where do we start in the green textbook?

Read the topics in the same order as described in the detailed Syllabus:

Thermodynamics and Kinetics of Organic Reactions (kinetics rather than thermodynamics controlling a reaction; electrophiles; nucleophiles; organic reaction mechanisms; ‘pushing arrows’; electrophilic addition; nucleophilic substitution; differences between free energy of activation and activation energy; complex reaction coordinate diagrams)
Ch 4.1 to 4.4 (Introduction to Organic Chemistry) Problems: 1-10, 23-40

Review of Molecular Structure and Bonding of Organic Compounds (Chem 14A) (Lewis structures; formal charges; resonance; VSEPR model; hybridization; bond angles, lengths and strengths; electronegativity; dipole moments)
Ch 3 & 4 (Chemical Principles) See Chem 14A notes and problems for review of this material.

Structure and Naming of Organic Molecules Part 1: Hydrocarbons (IUPAC and common names, and structures, of alkanes, cycloalkanes, alkenes, cycloalkenes, and alkynes; constitutional and geometric isomers)
Ch 1, Sections 1-6 and 11 (Introduction to Organic Chemistry) Problems: 1-6, 9-17, 21-29

Part 2: Functional Groups (IUPAC and common names, and structures, of haloalkanes, haloalkenes, alcohols, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids and amines; primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary carbons, hydrogens and nitrogens)
Ch 2, Sections 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 10 (Introduction to Organic Chemistry) Problems: 1, 3-6, 8, 11-13, 15-31 (omit 21, 22), 34-36, 40, 42, 44, 46-48

Structure and Conformations of Organic Molecules (structures and conformations (staggered, eclipsed, gauche, anti, chair, boat) of alkanes, cycloalkanes and substituted cycloalkanes; the effects of torsional & steric strain; Newman structures; relative energy differences and calculating ratios of two conformations; geometric isomers of cycloalkanes and their relative stabilities (preferred conformations))
Ch 3, Sections 1, 2 (Introduction to Organic Chemistry) Problems: 1-16
