CH301 Principles of Chemistry I Syllabus Page 1 Spring 10 CH 301 Principles of Chemistry I (Unique 52375) Spring ʻ 10 Syllabus Last revised 1/20/10 This course is the first half of a two-semester freshman chemistry sequence, and is primarily designed for freshman college students aiming for a degree in a science-related field, or those non-scientists who have some chemistry knowledge and want to know more! We build on chemistry background that you should have acquired during high school/ AP chemistry, or previous chemistry for non-science major courses. In addition to attending class and reading the textbook, you will be working on your problem-solving skills with weekly homework and in- class questions. New knowledge and understanding is useful, but thoughtful reflection and application of that knowledge form a solid foundation on which to build higher level chemistry courses, not to mention help you understand more about the world around us. Course content will cover an introduction to quantum mechanics and atomic theory, periodic trends, bonding, intermolecular forces, the states of matter, and thermodynamics. General Course Information Course personnel Ruth Shear (Course Instructor). ..............................................................

I rarely answer my phone and respond to voicemail much slower than email. Please see the notes below about email etiquette, and how to choose between sending questions by email or to the blackboard discussion board. Class meeting times and places Lectures: MWF 10 – 11 am . ............................................................................................................................... WEL 2.224 Your attendance at class, and participation in class discussion is expected. In-class quizzes will be given, and points will be allocated for your presence and participation, as well as your answers. Please contact me by email if you are unable to attend class. While this is not something you may not normally think of doing, this is a common courtesy that I would appreciate, and that may help you if some non-academic situation arises. Asking “ did I miss anything important? ” devalues the work I do for the class, so don’t! It is your responsibility to find out what you missed, by getting a copy of the notes from another student in the class. Once you have reviewed the material you missed, feel free to come to office hours if you have any questions. Office hours & review sessions
