and Creative Thinking Quantitative Reasoning and Information Literacy In particular students who successfully complete Chemistry 106 will be able to 1 Complete the development of an understanding of the concepts models and theories that form a foundation for the field of chemistry the understanding of how the behavior of matter is determined by the properties of atoms and molecules begun in Chemistry 105 2 Learn the principles of thermodynamics as they apply to chemical equilibrium including the relationships between equilibrium constants free energy enthalpy and entropy 3 Apply the principles of equilibrium to solubility pH and electrochemical equilibrium in aqueous solution 4 Learn and apply the principles of chemical kinetics as they apply to chemical reactions in general and how they are linked to and contrasted with equilibrium principles 5 Learn and apply the principles of nuclear reactions half life and radiation safety 2016 Washington State University What Materials Do I Need For This Class Text Chemistry A Molecular Approach by Tro 4th edition Pearson 2016 E text included in First Day bundle Loose leaf hard copies available at the Bookie Mastering Chemistry

site in Chemistry 106 Labs You can print a hard copy ahead of time or bring your laptop tablet to lab Goggles Required by State Law Sold in Fulmer 401 the 1st and 2nd week of class and at the bookstores Lab Coat Required for Chem 106 Sold in Fulmer 401 the 1st and 2nd week of class and at the bookstore Calculators A scientific calculator which you are responsible for bringing to all tutorials lectures labs and exams Any programmable or web enabled calculator or one with the capacity to store information such as the TI N spire or calculators with a full keyboard such as the TI 92 or Voyage 200 tablets laptops and cell phone calculator combinations may not be used during exams Apple watches may not be worn during exams Course Structure Lectures Lectures must be attended on a regular basis and you are expected to read the textbook BEFORE coming to class Lectures will supplement and clarify the information from your text rather than reiterate it and provide groupbased

of electronic devices web surfing texting social media etc is not tolerated during class time and may result in the loss of learning catalytics points for the day Please note that you must log in to Learning Catalytics through the course Blackboard site Logging in through your account in a different class or through the Pearson website will result in a forfeiture of the Learning Catalytics points for the day as your scores will not transfer to the Mastering Chem gradebook Homework We will use the Mastering Chemistry homework assignment system and there will be a new assignment each week The due date time for each assignment will be listed with the assignment on the homework site but is typically 7 00 AM on Tuesdays Each homework set is pro rated to a maximum value of 10 points Tutorials These are small classroom meetings associated with your laboratory section and led by your TA They feature group based guided inquiry exercises and worksheets There are 30 course points associated with tutorial participation Attendance is mandatory Exams Exam questions will a combination of multiple choice and show your work hand written calculations Appeals about grading on hand written questions will be first through your TA If your TA cannot resolve the issue the TA will present the appeal to the professor Laboratories Pre laboratory assignments Pre laboratory assignments are completed online through Blackboard and are due at 7 00AM Tuesday the week of that experiment regardless of your lab section They are typically worth 5 points included as part of the overall lab
