Chem 2301, Organic Chemistry I, Spring 2010, Professor Douglas Chemistry 2301 Organic Chemistry I Section 3 M W F: 1:25 – 2:15 PM 210 Anderson Hall Instructor : Professor Chris Douglas Office: 568C Kolthoff Hall Phone: 625-0922 Email: cdouglas@umn.edu Website: http://www.myu.umn.edu (WebVista/WebCT) and http://www.chem.umn.edu (follow the links to our class) Prof. Douglas’ Office Hours : M (4:00 to 5:00 PM), Th (4:15 to 5:45 PM), Fri (9:00 to 10:00 AM) TA Office Hours/Tutor room: 122 Smith Hall, times below Monday, Tuesday, & Thursday Wednesday Friday 11AM-1PM, 6PM-9PM 8-9 AM, 11AM-1PM, 6PM-9PM 8-9 AM, 11 AM-1PM, 2PM-5PM Course Materials : Required : L. G. Wade, Organic Chemistry (7 th Edition) G.R. Gray Flash Cards of Organic Chemistry I (Kendall/Hunt, 2007) found at UMN Bookstore, Darling Modeling Kit, (UMN Bookstore) Optional : Solutions Manual for textbook. Coverage : The goal of this course is to provide an introduction to organic chemistry. The Department of Chemistry mandates that we cover the first 13 chapters of the textbook (~620 pages). This translates into an average of 45 pages of reading per week. We will skip certain sections: see the “Course Plan” handout. Class Time : It is my intention to make some substantial changes to the way I teach this course relative to the first time I taught it in Spring 2009. I plan to use approximately two thirds of class time dedicated to ‘traditional chalkboard lectures’ while the remainder will be spent on working sample problems, student participation, and other in-class activities. Email : I receive lots of email (up to 100 emails per day). I will do my best to reply to all email messages in 24 hours from the time I receive them. Please understand that it is particularly difficult to reply to all emails the evening before exams as the number of emails can be quite high at that time. Please try not to wait until the last minute to ask questions. Note: I recently broke my arm and typing is difficult – please leave a phone number so I can reply by phone if your email requires more than a “yes/no”-type reply. Exams
