General Education Statement: Welcome to the Bowman-Oddy general chemistry laboratories. I know that you are asking, “Why am I here?” You are here because you selected a science-related field for your major, which requires a specific number and level of chemistry courses and labs in order to obtain a degree in that field. We honor that requirement and will work with you to make this experience as worthwhile as possible. The major objective of this laboratory course is to allow you to learn various concepts through hands-on experiences while learning proper analytical and preparative techniques, the use of analytical equipment, how to collect, analyze and report data, and how to work safely in a laboratory. You probably are not a chemistry major, but you will be working in a science-related field. Whether you are pre-pharm, pre-med or pre-dent, an engineering major, etc., you will be working in numerous labs here on campus and once you have graduated, you will probably be working for a company whose facilities are regulated by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration). For this reason, we stress not only the learning of the concepts in the lab, but also the various safety concerns and proper use of equipment that accompany those concepts. Proper use of safety goggles and chemical fume hoods, and proper attire will be strictly enforced at all times, and your failure to abide by these policies will result in your expulsion from lab. A second goal of this course is to prepare you for higher level courses and labs as well as work in
