Unformatted text preview: CHM 3217 Organic/Biochemistry 1 Fall 2009 Section 0808 Course Description This course will provide an overview of the basic principles of organic chemistry from a structural and mechanistic Viewpoint. The emphasis will be upon understanding the reactivity and other properties of carbon-based molecules in terms of their structure and fundamental chemical principles. The basic principles of organic and general chemistry are an essential element in acquiring a detailed understanding of the biological systems that will be discussed. Please note that by selecting this course you should also realize that you MUST register for CHM 3218 in order to satisfy both departmental and professional school requirements for undergraduate organic chemistry. CHM 3217 and CHM 3218 provide an integrated sequence covering structure, bonding, ‘ functional group properties, and biological chemistry. Instructor Dr. Jeff Keaffaber, FL1251, 392-1087, [email protected] (email is recommended for contact) Office Hours: MW Period 7-8 (1:55-3:50 PM) and TR Period 4 (10:40-11:30 AM) or by appointment. Lectures TR Period 7-8 (1:55-3:50 PM) LEI 104. Students are expected to attend all lectures. Attendance at lectures and office hours will significantly enhance your chances of getting a good grade in this course. This is a challenging course that moves at a fast pace, and you must work smart out of Class to master the material. Textbook Organic Chemistry A Biological Approach, John McMurry, Thomson Brooks/Cole, 2007 Office Hours Problem Sessions You are strongly urged to attend at least gig office hour per week to get help with the homework problems. You may attend individually or in small groups. Experience has shown that students who make an effort to participate in small-group teaching efforts always get the most benefit from the class. Come ready to solve problems, to ask questions, and to suffer at the hands of your peers and professor! Past students admit, it’s actually fun, and it builds teamwork and friendships. Exam Schedule Three (3) two-hour progress exams will be scheduled in class during the semester. The dates are provided on the Course Schedule. Each progress exam is worth 100 points. A 150 point two-hour Final Exam will be held 10:00 AM — NOON on Thursday, December 17, 2009. This gives a total of 450 points in this course, all from exams. Exams will not be multiple-choice. The questions will focus on solving problems and applying knowledge that you have learned in lectures, or by attending office hours, and reading the textbook.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
