General Chemistry I (CHEM 151) Fall 2009 Dr. John Pollard Old Chem 240 520 621 8843 HYPERLINK "mailto:jpollard@email.arizona.edu" jpollard@email.arizona.edu HYPERLINK "http://www.chem.arizona.edu/~jpollard" www.chem.arizona.edu/~jpollard Office hours- TBA (check website above) Lectures- M-W-F 10 AM and 1:00 PM KOFFL 204 Credits: 4 (3 hours lecture, 4 hour laboratory) Prerequisite: MATH 110 or an equivalent level of proficiency as demonstrated by the Math Readiness Test score. Course description Integrated lecture-lab course designed to develop a basic understanding of the central principles of chemistry that are useful to explain and predict the properties of chemical substances based on their atomic and molecular structure. Additionally, students will be introduced to modern laboratory techniques and participate in experimental activities that promote the development of basic and advanced science-process skills. The course is designed for students who require a strong foundation in general chemistry, such as science and engineering majors, and pre-medical and pre-pharmacy students. Recommended textbooks N. J. Tro Chemistry, A Molecular Approach 1 st Edition. Pearson, 2008. S. L. Brown. Fundamental techniques of Chemistry. 3 rd ed. Hayden-McNeil, 2010. Course Outline UNIT 1 How do we distinguish substances? Week Topics 1 Searching for Differences 2 Modeling Matter 3 Comparing Masses 4 Determining Composition UNIT 2 How do we determine structure? Week Topics 5 Analyzing Light-Matter Interactions

Week Topics 9 Analyzing Molecular Structure 10 Considering Conformations 11 Characterizing Ionic Networks 12 Exploring Electronic Structure UNIT 4 How do we model chemical change? Week Topics 13 Understanding Proportions 14 Tracking Energy 15 Analyzing Rate and Extent ATTENDANCE AND PARTICIPATION Attendance and participation in class is important, and thus may be taken into account in assigning the final grades for the course. Students are responsible for all information and materials presented in the lecture whether or not they were present. Students are required to perform all scheduled lab experiments. Should they miss a scheduled lab class, the work must be made up. Missing or failing to make up two or more experiments will cause students to fail the course. Make-up Labs are scheduled to accommodate students doing make-up
