Keep this Syllabus as a reference throughout the semester CHEM 117 General Chemistry II Spring 2008 CH117-3A Mondays and Wednesdays 4:00-5:15 PM in CHEM 101 CH117-2B Tuesdays and Thursdays 9:30-10:45 AM in CHEM 101 Dr. Joe March Office: CHEM 286 Email: march@uab.edu Office Hours: Mondays, 2:00-3:00 and Tuesdays 12:30-1:30 Goals of the General Chemistry Program 1. Develop in the student an understanding of the methodology of science. 2. Generate a basic understanding of the fundamental concepts of atomic structure, chemical bonding, chemical periodicity, and properties of the states of matter that result from aggregate structure. 3. Impart in students the ability to utilize the periodic table in understanding and explaining chemical behavior and properties. 4. Ensure that students can read (qualitative/quantitative) a chemical equation, predict chemical reactions, and understand the energetics and kinetics associated with chemical reactivity. 5. Develop quantitative skills that permit the student to solve real problems, which exemplify the basic chemical concepts, i.e. numerical and conceptual problem solving. 6. Reinforce the teaching of basic chemical concepts by giving the students a feeling of the way chemistry impacts the world about them and their future careers. 7. Provide the tools that the student will need to function as a chemically literate person in a technological world. Required Material Textbook: Chemistry The Molecular Science, 3 rd Edition, Moore, Stanitski, Jurs Calculator: An inexpensive calculator is required. The calculator should have capabilities for square roots, logarithms, and exponentiation (antilogarithms), and exponential notation (scientific notation). The calculator will be used on homework assignments, quizzes, exams, and in the laboratory. Class Handouts: You should obtain a copy of each handout when distributed in lecture, discussion, or laboratory. If you miss one, you should print a copy of the handout from the CH 117 Web page. Prerequisites: Completed CH 115 or equivalent course with a C or higher. Students that do not meet the prerequisites for this course will be administratively dropped. You should be concurrently enrolled in CH 118 (General Chemistry I Lab), although this is not mandatory.

Grades This course has many features designed to help you learn chemistry, however, none of these activities or materials can learn for you. Learning is something only you can do. You should plan on thinking about chemistry every day and the structure of this course should help you do this. * More than 4 5-point assignments may be made, but the maximum points earned will be 20. ** There will be 11 graded assignments in recitation, but only the best 10 will be used to calculate your grade. A 5-point bonus will be given if all 11 assignments are completed with a grade of 3/5 or better. No excused absences will be given, so no excuses are needed. *** Your percentage score on the Final Exam will be substituted for your
