Geiger •  Office: Chemistry Building, Room 9 •  Office Hours: 1:30-2:30 PM MWF, and other times by appointment (send me an email). •  You can also drop by, but I might be busy. •  Email: [email protected] Matter And Measurement Textbooks/other help •  Textbooks •  Brown, LeMay, and Bursten, Chemistry, the Central Science, 10th edition, Prentice-Hall, 2005. ISBN: 0-13-109686-9. •  The same text will be used for CEM 152 in the spring semester. •  The 9th edition (2003) can also be used. •  The 10th edition is stocked by campus bookstores. Also, it can be ordered from,, or directly from the publisher. •  N.B.: The study guide, Student's Guide for Chemistry, the Central Science, 10th edition, Prentice-Hall, 2005, is also available at the campus bookstores, but purchase of this book is not required. •  Lecture notes will be available on the web. Matter And Measurement Course organization •  Lectures MWF 12:40-1:30 pm (me) Recitation once a week (check your schedule). Small class, more individual help from Teaching assistants. Each section = 1 recitation group. No Recitation this week. They start next week. This week only come to class WF 12:40-1:30 pm. Matter And Measurement Grades •  Four exams (150 points/exam)x4 = 600 •  Many quizzes (in class), once a week at least. (Total = 200). At least the lowest two quizzes will be dropped. •  There will be no makeups. –  quiz problems will be directly copied from homework problems, except the numerical values will be changed such that the numerical answer is different. Final exam (200 points). Will be given on exam week. Matter And Measurement How to succeed: •  Attend lecture and recitation •  Do homework problems •  Do extra problems if you think you need them •  Being able to do the problems is key •  Understand the concepts from lecture.
