Fall 2011 CH 101 Section 001: MWF 9:10 am –10:00 am DAB 222 Instructor: Dr. Jaap Folmer email: [email protected] Office: Dab 822 Telephone: 513-7792 Office Hours Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday 2:00-3:00pm 10:00-11:00am 10:00-11:00 m Prerequisites The prerequisites for CH 101 are one year of high school chemistry and eligibility for MA 107. You are expected to know some chemistry coming into the course, such as moles and balanced equations. These subjects will be reviewed during the first few weeks of lecture. However, the pace is quite rapid . I will try to teach you how to better deal with the high pace usual in all university education. If you feel uncomfortable with the pace, I recommend you review your study habits, and I am open to discuss them with you. Otherwise consider switching to CH111 or audit/credit only, to salvage your GPA. Switching to audit/credit only or dropping must occur by Friday, October 14. Unfortunately this semester the schedule will not allow me to get the second test graded on that day: we have it the Wednesday before. Required Materials: the package deal 1. Online Textbook (Required) http://www.webassign.net/wertz/cams/html/index.html (Cost of access included in WebAssign access fee. Browser must be logged in to WebAssign for textbook link to function.) 2. Online Solutions Manual (Required) http://www.webassign.net/wertz/cams/soln_man/ (Cost of access included in WebAssign access fee. Browser must be logged in to WebAssign for textbook link to function.) 3. WebAssign Access Code (Required) See http://www.webassign.net/info/guide/index.html . There is a price break for 3 or more courses with WebAssign, so wait to see how many other courses you have with WebAssign before purchasing. There is a grace period during which you can do your homework. 4. Textbook (Required) Wertz, D.W., Chemistry - A Molecular Science , 2008. Hayden-McNeil. ISBN 978-0-7380-2712-8. A pdf file is given: you need to get it printed. 5. Polyhedral models (Required) Visit http://www.peda.com/models/ and order one set of die cast aluminum mathematical models ($28.-) For WebAssign you need to login with your unity ID. This semester we no longer provide/require a hard copy, but you will be given a pdf-version to download. I urge you to have it printed out, e.g. at kinko’s. Justification for the package deal Chemistry at NCSU uses its own materials package allowing for better curricular and technological innovation than a commercial textbook can give. The complete package is about the same price or about half the price if you would also buy a solutions’ manual in hard copy Required Cumulative Final Exam The final exam is required for all students and covers material presented during the entire semester. The final exam is worth 200 points or 30.8% of your semester grade. The university has scheduled your final exam time as shown below. Students must take their final exam with the section they are registered for. CH101-001:
