Rather than memorize facts and algorithms, you will be asked to make predictions and provide explanations. Specifically, you will be building knowledge of chemistry and about the scientific process in general. BSPACE: All assignments for the course (preclass, prelab, homework) will be posted on the course website. PRE-CLASS ASSIGNMENTS: There will be a pre-class assignment to be completed before each lecture. There will be an iClicker quiz on the assignment during lecture. These assignments will not be collected. The pre-class assignments are intended for you to intelligently consider information and analyze data that are provided. You do not need to read new chapters in the text to be successful in these assignments. In this class, we are interested in how you think and not merely in your factual knowledge of the material. LECTURE: Class time will include iClicker quizzes, lecture, demonstrations, discussions, and short group activities/problem solving. Participation in group discussion is expected and will maximize your learning. HOMEWORK: You will use an on-line web-based learning (OWL) system for submitting homework. Assignments on the previous week’s material will be administered and graded on-line through your personal OWL account. Though one assignment will be due every week, you will often have more than one attempt to master each assignment. OWL always saves the highest score earned by the due date of the assignment. Homework will be worth 4 points each week, scaled from the grades earned in OWL. Homework assignments will be due every Tuesday at 9AM.
