General Information Chem 1b, Winter 2009-2010 Course Syllabus Updated 1/2/10 page 2 of 5 Problem Sets, Quizzes & Exams Problem Sets (same as Ch1a) Weekly problem sets will be assigned and available for download from the Ch1b website every Friday. Selected solutions will be posted approximately three days after the due date, except for those scheduled during the midterm and the final. No material will be posted during those times so as 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” which means just that! You must do these problems yourself and may not even check answers with other Ch1 students. All material, including problem sets, must be completed and submitted for grading; otherwise, you will fail! Problem sets turned in late will receive reduced or no credit, but you must submit all problem sets to pass. Unless you have permission from the head grader, points will be deducted according to the ‘Late Work Schedule.’ (see below)
