1 CHEMISTRY 122 General College Chemistry I Course Syllabus Fall 2021 Instructor: Dr. Rita Hatfield Email: [email protected]Online Drop-In Office Hours: MW 3-4 pm, F 12:30-1:30 pm (Zoom link in Blackboard) Blackboard Course web site: uic.blackboard.com CHEM 122 General Chemistry I Lecture CRN: 39551 MWF 2:00 – 2:50 pm. Online synchronous lectures, plus one in person (on campus) discussion session per week COURSE OVERVIEW This course is the first semester of a two-semester, comprehensive general chemistry sequence that explores the behavior of matter conceptually and quantitatively by linking basic chemical concepts with problem solving. Students will demonstrate a good understanding of the basic structure of atoms, periodic properties of the elements, bonding concepts of atoms forming compounds, naming and writing of compounds and formulas, stoichiometry of chemical reactions, different types of chemical reactions, various properties of solution and gaseous phase matter. Furthermore, students will learn to apply chemical equilibrium principles to both gas-phase reactions and aqueous solution chemistry with emphasis on acids and bases, dissolution-precipitation, and precipitation reactions. COURSE REQUIREMENTS Prerequisites: To enroll in Chem 122, students must have 1) placed into Chem 122 on the basis of their performance on the chemistry placement exam, or 2) successfully completed Chem 101 with a final grade of C or better. Proficiency in math at the level of pre-calculus (or better) is assumed. Registration: Students must be registered for both lecture and discussion sessions. Failure to do so will mean that you will automatically be dropped. Accommodations: The University of Illinois at Chicago is committed to maintaining a barrier- free environment so that students with disabilities can fully access programs, courses, services, and activities at UIC. Students with disabilities who require accommodations for access to and/or participation in this course are welcome, but must be registered with the Disability Resource Center (DRC). You may contact DRC at 312-413-2183 (v) or 773-649-4535 (VP/Relay) and consult the following: drc.uic.edu/guide-to-accommodations ADD/DROP course: Last day for late registration is Friday, September 3"#.This is also the last day to drop the course and not receive a W grade. Last day to drop course with college approval and receive a W grade is Friday, October 29().See your college advisor for further details. Final Examination: The final exam will be cumulative and will be given during finals week. Time and day will be announced towards the end of the semester. Please note that all students are required to take the final exam. Required Course Materials: 1)Textbook:Chemistry: The Molecular Nature of Matter and Change with Advanced Topics, 9thEditionby Silberberg and Amateis ISBN 978-1-259-74109-8.
