General Information Ch1a, Fall 2009 Course Syllabus Updated: 25 Sep 2009 Page 1 of 5 Ch1a General Information and Course Syllabus Course Instructor – Nathan S. Lewis 210 Noyes, x6335, nslewis@its Professor Lewis will plan the curriculum, deliver the lectures, and write the examinations. Any feedback regarding the overall nature, content, and pace of the course should be directed to him. Course Coordinator – Mike Vicic 117 Spalding, x4613, vicic@cheme.caltech The course coordinator is responsible for general course administration and website maintenance. Questions about adding/dropping, changing sections, and other administrative issues should go to him. Head Grader – So Hyun Ahn sohyun@caltech The head grader is responsible for coordinating the grading for the course. Questions about correcting grading errors, submitting late assignments and asking for extensions should go to him. Classes Professor Lewis lectures on Mondays and Tuesdays at 11AM in Baxter Lecture Hall, and teaching assistants lead recitation sections on Thursdays at 11AM in various rooms. Your course schedule shows the location of your section, and the course website shows the name of the TA. Due to Professor Lewis’s schedule, the class/section schedule may be rearranged during the term. We anticipate only two changes: In the first week of classes, a 2 nd lecture will be held on Thursday (1 Oct) from 11AM – Noon in Baxter Lecture Hall. The recitations will still be on Thursday (1 Oct) but at a later time (9 – 10PM). Please check the course website for your recitation meeting location since some locations changed. In week 3, the lecture and recitation will be switched. The 2 nd lecture of the week will be on Thursday (15 Oct) from 11AM - Noon in Baxter Lecture Hall, and the recitations will be held Tuesday (13 Oct) from 11AM – Noon. Please check the course website for your recitation meeting location since some locations changed. Complete details may be found on the schedule on the course website and on page 5 of this document. If there are any other changes to the class/section schedule, we will announce the changes in class, by e-mail, and on the course website. Texts Principles of Modern Chemistry , D.W. Oxtoby, H.P.

General Information Ch1a, Fall 2009 Course Syllabus Updated: 25 Sep 2009 Page 2 of 5 Grades Problem Sets Weekly problem sets will be assigned. Sets are available on the course website ( see page 4 ), but a few copies will be placed in the Ch1 resource room ( see page 4 ). Selected solutions will be posted no earlier than three days after the due date, except for those scheduled during the midterm and the final. No material will be posted during those times to assure that students taking the exam during the beginning of the exam periods will have the same resources available to them as those who wait until the end of the exam periods. Problem sets are due the following Friday at 4PM in the drop-box next to Lloyd. Some problems are designated “no collaboration,”
