12/27/2007 3:56 PM CHM 2211 - Organic Chemistry II – Dr. Grow Course Syllabus – 20082 Spring 2008 "Imagination is more important than knowledge" - Albert Einstein "It ain't what you don't know that's bad, it's what you do know that ain't right" - Will Rodgers Instructor: Dr. Thomas Grow Office: 9722 Phone: 484-1101 Office Hours: Posted on Office Door or by appointment. eMail: [email protected] (Mail sent to me at WebCT will NOT be answered) Text: Organic Chemistry by Vollhardt and Schore, 5 th Edition (Model kit and Solutions Manual Optional). I also recommend Organic Chemistry as a Second Language by David R. Klein (Available online at wiley.com) and Preparing for Your ACS Examination in Organic Chemistry. Available online at www.uwm.edu/DEPT/chemexams/ . (I suggest you order immediately). Web-based Material: Copies of the syllabus, schedule, and other course-related materials are available on-line at http://itech.pjc.edu/tgrow/2211tom.html . Class Schedule: Room 1772, 10:30 – 11:45 AM Tuesday and Thursday or 6:00 – 8:40 PM Tuesday Assignments and Quizzes: In order to do well in Organic II, you will probably have to work harder than you did in Organic I (Hard to believe, huh?). Not only will you need to learn the new material but will also be responsible for all the material we covered in Organic I. As with Organic I, the biggest mistake students make in organic chemistry is underestimating the amount of time and effort required succeeding in this difficult course. Students that expect to succeed in this class must spend at least 12 hours each week studying. One cannot study chemistry, a truly cumulative science, and not keep up with the reading and problem assignments. I am assuming that you will read your textbook BEFORE class discussion and that the assigned problems at the end of the chapters will be worked. I will not formally lecture on all the topics in the textbook, for that would be impossible in the time allotted, but I will expect you to read and study all assigned sections. It is expected that you will devote a portion of your study time in the further pursuit of topics of interest to you. All of you, as science majors, should be developing study skills that allow you to read and assimilate information without formal classroom discussion. To measure your progress in chemistry on a weekly basis, I will give a 10 point, 15-minute online quiz due each Tuesday by 6PM over the material discussed and/or assigned during that week. Quiz grades are available as soon as the quiz is submitted and will collectively count as one of the regular exams given during the course. It is your responsibility to know the time and due date of specific quizzes. If you are having problems with the assignments, quizzes, or exams, I expect you to come and see
