General Chemistry II (CHEM 152) Spring 2010 CHEM XXI Dr. John Pollard Old Chem 240 520 621 8843 jpollard@email.arizona.edu www.chem.arizona.edu/~jpollard Office hours- Tuesdays 2-4 Lectures- M-W-F 10 AM 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 predict chemical change? UNIT 2 How do we control chemical change? UNIT 3 How do we analyze a complex chemical system? UNIT 4 How do we use chemical systems to harness energy? 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 work. The Teaching Service Office (TSO) in Koffler 201 can provide more details. TEXTBOOK The textbook is a useful reference to study, get more information, solve problems, etc., but is only a tool. Lectures will not be strictly based on the textbook. Examinations and problems sets will contain material from both the text and the class lectures. REQUIRED MATERIALS
