Let’s improve introductory chem and Math 51

Hiring lecturers for these introductory courses with the intention of increasing quality would have no adverse effect other than than increasing the quality and freeing faculty to focus on topics that may interest them more. The CS department already does this. And putting more effort into introductory classes, rather than giving them a feel as weeders might improve participation in higher level classes too.
