SUNY AT STONY BROOK DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY CHE 143 HONORS CHEMISTRY LAB Fall 2011 Staff: Professor Daniel Raleigh is in charge of CHE 143 during Fall 2010. The Director of Gen- eral Chemistry Laboratories, Dr. Mohammad Akhtar, will also be on hand to assist in laboratory operations. In addition to the faculty instructors, there will be Graduate Teaching Assistants for each section, who will also hold office hours and help with grading. You are expected to treat all staff members respectfully. General : Prof. Raleigh’s office is Room 647 in the Chemistry Building. Dr. Akhtar’s is 213. Office hours will be announced and posted on the course blackboard website early in the semester. If you need to meet at another time, please contact Prof. Raleigh or Dr. Akhtar in ad- vance. If you have a physical, psychiatric/emotional, medical or learning disability that may impact your ability to carry out assigned course work, you are urged to contact the staff in the Disabled Student Services office, in the ECC Building, 632-6748/TDD. DSS will review your concerns and determine with you what accommodations are necessary and appropriate. All information and documentation of disability are confidential. Student Responsibilities : You have the responsibility: of being prepared for the lab by performing all of the assigned reading in advance . An im- portant part of your grade is time management. Extra time in the lab may not be possible, so you must arrive in the lab knowing all of the steps that need to be performed. of keeping up with the work, by doing assignments in a timely manner and attending lectures and labs. of asking questions when something is not clear to you. of working cooperatively with your classmates so that all may learn. of knowing and complying with course policies, including any announcements made in class or on the course website. Philosophy and Goals : Chemistry is the science of matter and its transformations. It is some- times called “the central science,” since it relates directly to all the other sciences and to techno- logy. We approach teaching this course on the presumption that students want to satisfy their curiosity about the material world around them, as well as to earn good grades to build a strong transcript that will support your future career goals. No student should settle for passively absorbing an arbitrary syllabus; what you have learned will not be retained unless you relate it to your everyday world. Much of our lab time will therefore be spent on applying chemical principles to learn about substances from the real world and meth- ods of investigating such substances. The lab time will also be much more enjoyable if you ap- proach it as a challenge rather than as a burden.
