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 two exams, a shorter take-home exam, and a comprehensive final (ACS Standardized).  Exam dates (subject to change by unanimous consent):
