Fall 2014 Syllabus 4 credits, General Education - Physical Science Meets: M, W, F in ISB 135 10:10 – 11:00 (50 min) + laboratory component (every other week) Instructor: Professor Julian Tyson Office: GSMN 132, Office Hours: To be decided Teaching assistant: To be announced Office Hours: Will be available in Resource Center in ISB (3 rd floor) Suppl. Instr. : Nathan Hall email: [email protected] Use "Send Message" in OWL (on-line web learning homework system) Course Description: General Chemistry for Scientists. The first half of a two-semester sequence covering the basic principles of chemical structure and reactivity. This includes the microscopic nature and behavior of atoms and molecules, and the macroscopic properties and behavior of chemical systems. You will gain an insight into what it means to “think like a chemist.” Requirements: (1) Textbook: The textbook is the OWL e-book. Access is purchased. Details are provided separately. (2) An i>clicker personal response device. Visit - response-system if you are not familiar with this technology. (3) A scientific calculator. (4) Safety Glasses for the laboratory (American Optical Safety Glasses #484A) available at the Textbook Annex. Exams: Evening examinations (7:00 – 9:00 PM) taken in the ISB General Chemistry Laboratories): Exam #1 (75 min): Tuesday, October 13 th , 2015 Mid-semester Withdraw Date (last chance to withdraw with a “W”): October 22, 2015. Exam #2 (75 min): Thursday, November 12 th , 2015 Final (120 min): During the Final Examinations period: Tuesday December 15 th , 2015. 8:00 AM. This exam cannot be taken early. Each examination is a pyramid exam, with a bottom and a top. The bottom (taken first) is a closed book, single-page-of-notes (US letter size, both sides) exam with a time constraint. Then, you get to take the exam again (the top of the pyramid) over a period of a few days. Your score is the weighted average of the two (bottom 70%, top 30%). Make-up opportunities will be available in accordance with the University’s policy (see Senate document 07-046). In addition, there will be make-up versions of the two “progress” exams near the end of the semester. Note that to pass the course, a student must have a passing final numerical course grade (> 60%) in both the lecture and the laboratory portion of the course. Failing the lab portion of the course results in an automatic failure of the course.
