M.; Webster, F. X.; Kiemle, D. J.; Spectrometric Identification of Organic Compounds, 7th ed. 2005 Pavia, D.L.; Lampman, G.M.; Kriz, G.S. Introduction to Spectroscopy, 3rd ed (multicolor cover) CHEM 190: Problem Solving in Organic Chemistry Spring 2008 page 1 of 2 Grading Grades for this class are given as credit/no credit based on participation in problem solving Chemical Safety (CHEM 120S) Chemistry 120S (Chemical Safety) is a required course for all chemistry majors and minors, and a prerequisite for all students involved in Chemistry 180 or 298 research courses. Emergencies and Building Evacuations If you hear a continuously sounding alarm, or are told to evacuate the building by an Emergency Coordinator, walk quickly to the nearest exit (out the door and turn left to exit the Science Building). Take your personal belongings as you may not be allowed to return. Follow the instructions of the Emergency Coordinators. Be quiet so you can hear instructions. Once outside, move away from the building. Do not return to the building unless the Police or the Emergency Coordinator announce that this is permissible. Dropping and Adding You are responsible for understanding the policies and procedures about add/drops, academic renewal, etc. found at http://sa.sjsu.edu/student_conduct. You should be aware of the new deadlines and penalties for adding and dropping classes. University Policies Academic integrity Students are expected to be familiar with the University's Academic Integrity Policy. Please review this at http://sa.sjsu.edu/student_conduct. "Your own commitment to learning, as evidenced by your enrollment at San Jose State University and the University's integrity policy, require you to be honest in all your academic course work. Faculty members are required to report all infractions to the office of Student Conduct and Ethical development." Instances of academic dishonesty will not be tolerated. Cheating on exams or plagiarism (presenting the work of another as your own, or the use of another person's ideas without giving proper credit) will result in a failing grade and sanctions by the University. For this class, all assignments are to be completed by the individual student unless otherwise specified. Campus Policy in Compliance with the American Disabilities Act If you need course adaptations or accommodations because of a disability, or if you need to make special arrangements in case the building must be evacuated, please make an appointment with me as soon as possible, or see me during office hours. Presidential Directive 97-03 requires that students with disabilities requesting accommodations must register with the DRC (Disability Resource Center) to establish a record of their disability.
