Syllabus Chemistry 139 Spring 2008 Course: Section 03 Time: 11:00-11:50 MWF Room: CFS 121 Instructor: Dr. Richard E. Norman [email protected] Office: CFS 317 A Office Hours: MWF 10:00 – 10:50; 1:00-1:50; Phone: 294-1532 (dept) stop by or other times by appointment 294-1527 (direct) Webpage: Under construction Text: Brown, LeMay and Bursten Chemistry The Central Science , 10th Edition Hill Student’s Guide Wilson Solutions to Red Exercises Prerequisites: A grade of C or better in CHM 138. Attendance : Attendance is required. I am required to take attendance. I will do this by assigning seats. If you are absent, it is your responsibility to obtain the lecture material that you missed. Occasionally, changes in schedule may be announced in class. These changes apply to you even if you were absent. Students who miss few classes tend to do better than students who miss repeatedly. However, class attendance will not specifically be used to evaluate student performance. Course Summary: This is the second semester of general chemistry. This course is designed for science majors and minors including the following areas: chemistry, biology, physics, environmental science, geology, nutrition, and several preprofessional programs (PDT, PEN, PMD, PMT, POD, PPH, PPT, PPA, PPD, PVT). CHM 139 may also be a prerequisite for another course in your major or minor field. Chemistry is the study of matter and its changes. The material is naturally cumulative. The course will cover Chapters 10, 11, 13 through 17, 19 through 21 and 24 of the textbook (but not in that order), and will emphasize quantitative aspects of equilibria and solution chemistry. Objectives: Learn and master: thermodynamics, kinetics (including mechanisms), chemical equilbrium and the associated calculations (including simultaneous equilibria), redox balancing and electrochemistry, fundamentals of metal complexes and nuclear "chemistry".
