It introduces principles, laws, and nomenclature of inorganic chemistry. Chemistry 10 prepares students to take the General Chemistry sequence (Chemistry 11 and Chemistry 12). It additionally serves as a basic chemistry course for the allied health majors (such as nursing and physiology). It also serves to fulfill general education requirements. Students who successfully complete this course will understand basic chemical principles and will have practiced quantitative reasoning and problem solving skills. Students will also have learned various lab techniques, including the safe and competent handling of chemicals and laboratory equipment. The prerequisite for this course is Math 31 or HS Algebra II. Students should be proficient in solving basic algebraic functions, working with percentages, fractions and graphing linear equations. Required Materials Textbook: Introductory Chemistry, 6 th Edition, Nivaldo J Tro with Mastering Chemistry (see Canvas) Class Handouts and Problem Sets: posted online, see “Modules” link on Canvas Lab Manual: posted online, see “Lab Manual” link on Canvas; and available in SMC Bookstore Safety goggles ( not safety glasses); Lab coat (knee length); Nitrile gloves TI-30Xa scientific calculator or any approved basic scientific calculator capable of doing scientific notation and logarithms. Programmable, graphing and cellphone calculators are not permitted during exams. Laboratory Locker Card (available at the SMC bookstore for $10). Access to a computer with reliable internet service (for email, Canvas, homework) Class Attendance and Participation Regular attendance at all classes is mandatory in this course. Enrolled students who are absent from any lecture or lab without a valid excuse during the first week of class may be dropped from the course. Students with two or more unexcused absences may also be dropped. (NB. You may get an “F” if you do not auto-drop in time). Students are expected to come to all classes early, be prepared and stay late; bring all required material (lab documents, handouts, calculator, etc) appropriate to the class and participate fully. Grading and Evaluation Course grades are calculated from the sum of your average percentage score in a category e.g. Exams, times the course weight for that category. P lease note that 89.9 is different from 90.0. Further, there is NO extra credit and NO grade curving.
The course categories (c) and weights (w) – in bold – are: HomeWork ( HW ) 10% Quizzes ( Q ) 10% Labs ( L ) 15% Mid-Term Exams( MTE ) 35% - Prelab (PL) 2% Final Exam ( FE ) 25% - Lab Report (LR) 10% - Post Lab Quiz (PLQ) 3% Lab Final Exam ( LFE ) 5% Your grade for each assignment will be kept in Canvas.
