PLEASE READ THIS HANDOUT CAREFULLY! DOING SO IS LIKELY TO HELP YOU AVOID PROBLEMS LATER IN THE SEMESTER!!! CHEM 1022 CHEMICAL PRINCIPLES II FALL, 2009 MWF 11:15 am -12:05 pm 100 Smith Hall Professor Ruth Robinson 4 Credits OFFICE HOURS : MW : 12:15-1:00 pm F : 9-10 am 151A Kolthoff CONTACT INFO: Phone: 612-625-7986 robinsor@umn.edu (Email is the best way to contact me) way to contact me outside of office hours.) Prerequisites: You should not be registered for CHEM 1022 unless you have passed CHEM 1021 or an equivalent course with a grade of C - or better. A C - grade in CHEM 1021 is a marginal pass and likely indicates that you will have to work extra hard in CHEM 1022. CHEM 1022 is a more difficult course than CHEM 1021! Registration All matters pertaining to registration- including late registration, laboratory section assignments, course time conflicts, and withdrawals- are handled by the General Chemistry Office in 115 Smith Hall (612-624-0026). Environmental Content : Chemistry 1021 and 1022 are introductory chemistry courses with lab. The two courses together are designed to prepare a student for a major in science, including chemistry, engineering, and the health sciences. Each course meets the requirements for the Environmental Theme and addresses a significant number of environmental topics. For a chemistry course, a natural focus for these topics is the environmental effects of chemical pollution resulting from human activity. There are three important aspects to this issue: (1) how does human activity affect “the interdependency of humans and the natural environment”; (2) how does human activity affect the natural “regenerative capacity of the biosphere”; and (3) what are “the cultural and social implications of human intervention in natural processes.” According to the Council on Liberal Education, “A key element in the preparation of the liberally educated individual is an acknowledgement of this interaction and an acceptance of responsibility for the planetary consequences of human behavior.” In Chemistry 1022 these issues will be addressed in lecture, in assigned problems, in laboratory experiments specifically designed to be environmentally friendly, and in a student poster session on a topic of environmental significance . Textbooks : Required: Chemistry , by Martin Silberberg (McGraw Hill, 5 th Edition, 2009). Required: Laboratory Manual for General Chemistry, An Environmentally Friendly Approach, Michelle Driessen, Editor, University of Minnesota (10 th Edition, 2009).
