In addition, the student will learn many of the fundamental principles and some of the vocabulary of chemistry. Describe the sub-atomic structures of atoms, ions, and isotopes. Relate the observable properties and characteristics of elements, compounds, and mixtures to the concept of atoms and molecules. Explain chemical reactions in terms of the rearrangement of the atoms as bonds are broken and new bonds are formed. Describe reactions in terms of energy changes. Demonstrate knowledge of various types of chemical bonding. Through classroom learning, which will include practicalapplications, and through reinforcement of the basic principles, concepts, and terms of chemistry in the laboratory, students will learn skills of observation, inquiry, and assessment (the scientific method) to explain natural phenomena and resolve problems. Successful completion of this course will leave students with the chemical concepts needed to appreciate the pros and cons of decisions made by businesses, politicians, and agencies such as the EPA. If the students future is in teaching, both the lectures and the labs should give them sufficient background to teach the chemistry that is encountered in K-4 textbooks. The positive experience gained through this course should clearly give the student the confidence and interest in promoting this central science regardless of his or her chosen profession.COURSE GRADING: 3 Hour Exams (100 pts each) 300 pointsFinal Exam 100 pointsHomework 100 pointsLaboratory 100 pointsThere will be no make-up exams. I will drop your lowest score of the four exams when calculating your final grade. Your grade will therefore be calculated out of a total of 500 points. An exact grading “curve” cannot be assigned with certainty at this point, but it will be similar to the one below: A > 90% C+ > 77% B+ > 87% C > 70% B > 80% D > 60% F < 60% Attendance policy: will be discussed on first day of class… Hour Exams: On the day of the exam, you are responsible for bringing a pencil, your student I.D and a calculator with fresh batteries. The Final exam is scheduled for Tuesday April 30th 4:00 pm Laboratory:Chemistry is primarily an experimental science. Therefore, laboratory experiments are an important part of the course. In order to gain any benefit from the lab, you should read and prepare for the experiment ahead of time. You will be given approximately 2 weeks to complete each lab. The labs will be performed in PSC room 316. Lab times will be scheduled by you at your convenience using the online scheduler found on the class blackboard website under course documents. All experiments must be completed in order to receive a passing grade for the course. Within each two week period you may schedule only one time slot (one hour slot) to complete your lab. When reporting to the laboratory the lab TA will check and see if you are indeed registered for the lab time. Only 24 students are allowed for any one hour time slot, therefore do not wait until the last minute to schedule your desired time for it may be full. Once you scheduleyou can cancel online anytime up to 8 hours before the lab starts, after which you will not be allowed to cancel online and you are required to show up for that lab time, and if you do not you will not be allowed to schedule for that experiment and may result in not passing the course. Youwill not be able to reschedule an experiment after the due date for that experiment. All due dates are available on the web site given above. Also you can only schedule one hour at a time, once you complete the lab you may then schedule for the next lab. Cell Phones Ringing or answering cell phones has been defined by the University as “disruptive behavior.” You may not answer calls or reply to text messages during the class. Silence your cell phone before class begins. You may not bring a cell phone or other device capable of communication to the classroom during a test. Here’s the official University wording: “Policy for Portable Electronic Devices: The use of any portable devices, including cell phones, pagers, MP3 players, iPods, etc., during class is not allowed for any reason unless prior approval has been given to a student from the instructor or unless required for the course. If you are planning to have any of these devices in class, they must be turned off and stowed away for the duration of the class period. If you use a portableelectronic device during a test, quiz, or other assessment, you are eligible to receive a failinggrade on that assignment.”It is the instructor’s right to remove from the classroom any student who disrupts or disturbs the proceeding of the class. Disruption of the class includes but is not limited to theuse of any portable electronic devices, including cell phones, MP3 players, iPods, etc., unless prior approval has been given to a student or unless required for the course. The faculty member also has the right to request assistance from university police. If the student who has been ejected causes similardisturbances in subsequent meetings of the class, he/she may be denied admittance to the class for the remainder of the semester and assigned a grade of F.ACADEMICRESPONSIBILITY: Enrollment in this course obligates each student to abide by the CODE OF STUDENT ACADEMIC RESPONSIBILITY of the
