b. Bound laboratory notebook by Freeman
c. Lab safety glasses
d. Calculator (add, subtract, multiply, divide, logs)
e. Lab deposit, $10.00 cash at lab check-in (refundable upon check-out)
a. Lectures - MWF, 8:00 AM.
b. Assigned homework - problems designed to enhance your understanding and prepare you for testing situations. A key will be passed out immediately after collection of the assignment. No late homework will be accepted.
c. Laboratory - 7:45 - 11:35 R. The experiments are listed on the last page.
a. The final grade is based on the number of points obtained out of a possible 700 points. The points will be distributed as follows:
|hour exams||300 points|
|final exam (cumulative)||150 points|
c. BONUS POINTS! you will receive 3 bonus points for each chemistry department colloquium you attend. There will also be some bonus questions on the exams.
Policy on Attendance for Exams and Quizzes Makeups will be administered
only if I deem the reason for absence to be legitimate and I am notified
of the absence beforehand. Absence due to transportation difficulties
is not considered legitimate.
