Unformatted text preview: Welcome to Chemistry 3BL Fall 2006 Chemical Structure and Reactivity 2nd Semester Lab David Rabuka General Information 3BL is the second semester laboratory course for organic chemistry directed at non-majors. Each week there is a four-hour laboratory and a one- hour lecture. Chem 1A, 3A, and 3AL are prerequisites of this course. Chem 3B may be taken concurrently or in a previous term. Pedersen and Myers lab manual, Pedersen and Pedersen lab notebook: available at Neds Bookstore. Course website: http://bspace.berkeley.edu Grading Lab reports (8 x 12) 96 120 and above A Prelab quizzes (2 x 12) 24 105-119 B Lab exam 30 85-105 C 150 75-85 D below 75 F A student can also earn a failing grade if they earn three or more zeros on laboratory experiments. Incomplete grades: University rules mandate that incomplete grades may be given only when the student has satisfactorily completed (C- or better) almost all of the required work but is unable to complete the course because of circumstances beyond his or her control . Arrive to lab on time. The frst 10-15 minutes is a saFety-talk. Prepare a prelab. No prelab means no lab. Attend lab. Wear your saFety-glasses. Record detailed observations. Record all expected data during the lab period. Provide the TA with the carbon-copy beFore leaving. Write a discussion and attempt to answer all questions. Make reasonable assignments on all spectra. Lab Reports - goal: to be observant in lab and learn about scientific writing to communicate observations effectively. Lab Reports (cont.) 1 zero = no effect on your grade (lowest lab score will be dropped) 2 zeros = lose at least 12 points, final grade lowered 1/3 (A- becomes B+) 3 zeros (regardless of reason for the zero) = automatic F in the course....
