Energy4)Structure of atom. Orbitals.5)Elements and Symbols.6)Nuclear Chemistry Concepts7)Periodic Table. Trends in Periodic Table8)Chemical bond. Types of chemical bond. Nomenclature.9)Chemical reactions and Quantities10)Gases Laws11)Solutions and Types of Concentrations12)Basic concepts of chemical kinetics and equilibrium13)Acids and Bases.14)pH of solutions15)BuffersAttendance and Preparation Policy:Students are expected to attend all class meetings.However,attendance in class isnotrecorded (with some few exceptions). Students areresponsible for class preparation and for any material presented in the course of the lectureswhether or not it is contained in the textbook. Chemistry is ahighlystructured course, with eachnew topic based on others previously developed. Thus it iscriticalfor students to keepconsistentlyup-to-date in their readings and assignments. To fall even one class period behind isto risk considerable difficulty in mastery of future material. Therefore students should:1)Review previous material, especially if it was not perfectly understood2) Complete reading assignmentsbeforethe lecture in which the topics are covered, or atleast immediately after the lecture3)Complete assigned problems and exercises on time, with an emphasis on mastery ofconcepts and principals involved rather than looking for a formula that will give theexpected answer(remember that the question can be asked in a different way and not justwith different numbers!)4) The average student needs to do12-15 hours of work outside of class(20:80 splitbetween reading and problem solving) in order to earn a passing grade for this class. Astudent earning high B’sand above typically does more than this.
