Grading: There will be four (4) examinations. The first three examinations are one hour each in duration and are worth 150 points and the last examination is worth 200 points. Also, there will be an individual project worth 100 points. Below is list of the examinations, the tentative dates and the material to be covered. Also, there will be a four (4) quizzes worth a total of 50 points..

 Exam Date  Material Covered
1 February 8 Chapter 11-13

All examinations and quizzes must be taken on the scheduled date. Should situations arise that prevent you from taking an examination or quiz on the scheduled date, you must make special arrangements with me before the end of that test day. If you miss any examination or quiz without making separate arrangements, you will receive a "0" for that test. The total possible points earned is 800. The grading scale is as follows:

  720  to 800 = A
  640  to 719 = B
  560 to 639 = C
  480 to 559 = D
     0 to 479 = F

 

The practice problems for each chapter are included with this syllabus. Practice problems and exercises within each chapter are optional, but recommended. In the rear of the book are the answers to the some of the practice problems.

There is no requirement for submitting homework problems. You should attempt to do as many of the problems as possible. Should you encounter difficulty with any of these problems, contact me separately. We will not discuss the problems in class. Tutors are available at the Learning Support Center.

Attendance is not part of your grade nor is it required. It is your responsibility for initiating a withdrawal from the course. If you choose to withdraw, you must do so before the 45th day of the semester (March 95th). Make certain that you get the required paperwork to me for signature before the deadline. If you wish to withdraw after the first 45 days, you must obtain a withdrawal slip, obtain my signature and process it. Failure to do this may result in an "F" for the course.

Disruptive behavior will result in removal from the classroom. Repeated occurrences will be reported to the dean's office. No food, drinks or smoking is allowed in the classroom. All students must wear shirts and shoes besides appropriate pants/dresses. Open-toed shoes and sandals are not recommended in the laboratory.  If you bring a cellular telephone into the classroom, please turn it off.  If you bring a pager into the classroom, please put it on the vibrating mode.

Third Edition

 

Grading: Each non-computer laboratory has a point value of 50 and all others have a point value of 25. There will be no make-up for labs unless prior arrangement has been made. All laboratories must be turned in before leaving the laboratory.

The total possible points earned is 565. The grading scale is as follows:

  495 to 550 = A
  440 to 494 = B
  385 to 439 = C
  330 to 384 = D

It is your responsibility for initiating a withdrawal from the course. If you choose to withdraw, you must do so before the 45th day of the semester (March 9th). Make certain that you get the required paperwork to me for signature before the deadline. If you wish to withdraw after the first 45 days, you must obtain a withdrawal slip, obtain my signature and process it. Failure to do this may result in an "F" for the course.

You are to obtain and maintain a laboratory notebook for all non-computer experiments.Each experimental write-up will include the following:

 Experiment objective;
Equipment to be used;
All chemicals used;
Procedure summary;
Chemical equation(s) for the experiment;
 Data calculations;
 Results;
 Conclusion(s).

 

Prior to coming to laboraotry, you will be responsible for reading each experiment. For non-computer experiements you will prepare a written brief description of that procedure. At the beginning of laboratory I will inspect each notebook and initial your write-up. Five (5) points of your grade for each non-computer experiment will be earned from the written description. My initials in your notebook indicate that I have reviewed your description and it is satisfactory. All results must be recorded in your lab notebook along with a brief explanation of your results. When appropriate, compute percent yield and any pertinent chemical and/or physical data.

The lab notebooks with the completed experiment results and any discussion, are due in my office the next day, Wednesday, no later than 3:00 PM. If the note book is received after 3:00 PM, that experiment will lose 8 points from the grade.

At the beginning of each laboratory the instructor will give a lecture. If a student is more than 10 minutes late or the lab or misses the lab lecture, they will not be allowed to Experimenticipate in that laboratory that day. Student may not restart any experiment after the first 30 minutes of the laboratory. All physical work will cease 15 minutes before the scheduled end of the laboratory session. Students will use this time to clean up their work station and complete laboratory reports. Anyone remaining after the stated end of the laboratory period will have 1 point deducted from their lab report for each minute beyond the laboratory end time.

Disruptive behavior will result in removal from the classroom. Repeated occurrences will be reported to the dean's office. No food, drinks or smoking is allowed in the classroom. All students must wear shirts and shoes besides appropriate pants/dresses. Open-toed shoes and sandals are not recommended in the laboratory. Any student who disregards safety rules and regulations will be asked to leave the laboratory and will receive a "0" for that lab. Please refer to the Student Disciplinary Code regarding the college's policy on the misuse of compouter technology. The policy is found in the 2001/2002 PVCC Student Handbook, page C-27, Article III, Paragraph 14.

Your participation is encouraged. All students will be asked to contribute to our discussions. There will be a lecture before each laboratory.

Each student will be assigned a lab drawer. By the end of the semester, each student must check out their lab drawer. If you withdraw from the course before the end of the semester be certain to check out the drawer. Failure to check out your drawer will result in a fine of $10.00.
