CLASS HOURS: Lecture: MWF, 11:30 - 12:20 a.m.; Lab: T 1:00 - 4:50 p.m.
INSTRUCTOR: Dr. David A. Franz Office: 321-4181 Home: 326-7594 E-mail: email@example.com
OFFICE HOURS: MWF, 9:30 - 10:30 a.m.; MF, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m.; or by appointment
TEXT: Harris, D. C. Quantitative Chemical Analysis, 5th Ed.; Freeman: New York, 1999. Readings from other texts and sources will also be made.
LAB POLICIES: Safety glasses and bound lab notebook required; no bare feet, sandals or shorts in lab. Carbons of lab data are due at the end of the day work is done. Written lab reports will be due one week following completion of each experiment, or as announced. Late reports will be docked five points plus one point per day late.
EXAMS: There will be three hour exams and a comprehensive
final (ACS Standardized). Exam dates:
February 15, Tuesday lab period
March 21, Tuesday lab period
April 11, Tuesday lab period
HOMEWORK: Will be assigned regularly, collected and checked.
|Extra Credit: 3 pts added for each Chem Colloquium attended,
of class absences; max of 21 pts; grade boost limited to one fractional change (e.g., B to B+) Class absences: 3 pts @ deducted in excess of 3 absences.
Letter grades will be assigned on the following basis:
|100-91% = A||88-87% = B+||78-77% = C+||68-67% = D+||<59% = F|
|90-89% = A-||86-81% = B||76-71% = C||66-61% = D|
|80-79% = B-||70-69% = C-||60-59% = D-|
