Temple University Department of Chemistry Introduction to Chemistry Laboratory Dr. James Bloxton, Laboratory Coordinator (Chemistry 1023) Fall Semester 2009 Office: 102 Beury Hall 1-215-204-7129 E-mail: [email protected] Keep this syllabus; it contains important information which you will need to know in order to succeed in this course. Chemistry 1023 is the first semester of Introduction to Chemistry Laboratory. This broad survey course in chemistry is designed primarily for non-science majors and those planning careers in allied health or horticulture. Introduction to Chemistry is a core curriculum course; however, it is not accepted by medical or dental schools, and cannot normally be used as a prerequisite for Chemistry 2201 (Organic Chemistry). If you expect to take Science and Technology courses in Chemistry (2000 level or above), you should take the 1031-1034 sequence (General Chemistry) rather than this course. A student will not be permitted to enroll in Chemistry 1023 unless that student also enrolls in Chemistry 1021, or has previously completed Chemistry 1021 or its equivalent with a passing grade. Any student who has a need for accommodation based upon the impact of a disability should contact his or her course instructor privately to discuss their specific situation as soon as possible; also it is advisable for them to contact Disability Resources and Services at 215-204-1280. LABORATORY TEXTS AND BLACKBOARD: 1. Bloxton, J.D., Fall 2008, Chemistry 1023 Lab Manual, XanEdu, Louisville. 2. Students should check Blackboard and their Temple e-mail accounts weekly for possible announcements and possible supplementary materials. All handouts will be available under Course Documents Section of Blackboard. If a student misses a laboratory where laboratory materials for the following session were passed out, the student will need to get these materials from Blackboard. This is very important in preparation for prelaboratory quizzes, prelaboratory questions and makeup laboratories. GRADING: Grades will be based on a possible 1000 points for Chemistry 1023. The grade breakdowns are given below: CHEMISTRY 1023 Midterm Exam 200 points Final Exam 200 points Lab. Reports 500 points Lab Quizzes 100 points -------------- Total 1000 points GENERAL COURSE INFORMATION: First class: Monday, August 31, 2009. Last day to drop (tuition refund available): Monday, September 14, 2009. Last day to withdraw (no refund): Monday, November 2, 2009. Students who have previously withdrawn from the same course, or who have already withdrawn from 5 courses since September 2003 may not withdraw. Drops and withdrawals are handled by the student's college office. The fall semester ends on Saturday, December 19, 2009. ABSENCES: Excessive unexcused absences from any part of Chemistry 1023 can result in a student receiving an F as a final grade. It is the responsibility of the student to make sure that his/her absence is recorded as excused if such is the case.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
