Open Notes. One page permitted, 8.5 inches by 11 inches, double-sided, You may write, Xerox, scan, etc. anything on the two sides of this page that you wish. If you put a lot of effort into preparing these notes, keep track of them. You can use them at the final exam. Grading: Grading of the examination will be based on the standards stated in the Chemistry 453 course syllabus. Please review the standards section of the syllabus. Important points to keep in mind: Partial credit is USUALLY given in units of 3-5 points. Obtaining the correct numerical answer is counted in partial credit grading. An answer that is within 10% of the correct answer will be fully credited. Calculations must include physical units and a proper dimensional analysis must be included in the calculation. Students are expected to understand how to use their calculators properly. Students will NOT be forgiven for mistakes resulting from calculator errors. When you are asked to explain an answer or are asked to define a term, carefully worded complete sentences are required. If you are given the option to choose from a list of problems (e.g. answer three of the following five questions) you will NOT be credited for answering more than the requested number. For example, if you are allowed to select three problems out of five for answering…and you answer all five… the grader will NOT credit you for the highest three scoring problems out of five. The first three problems presented on the blue book will be graded.
