Unformatted text preview: CHM 2046 – General Chemistry 2 – Spring 2012 Lectures: MWR Period 9 (4:05 – 4:55 PM) in CLB 130. Concurrent enrollment in CHM 2046L, 2054L, MAC 2311, MAC 2312, or MAC 2313 is suggested. Instructor: Dr. Jeffrey Keaffaber, Office: FLI 251; Phone: 392‐1087; Email: jjk@chem.ufl.edu Email is the recommended form of contact. Please do not email the instructor using Sakai! Office Hours: MTWR Period 7‐8 (1:55‐3:50 PM) If these times don’t work for you, please make an appointment. No office hours on Fridays. Teaching Assistants: TA sessions are held on Tuesdays beginning January 17th. No TA sessions during the first week of classes during add/drop. O/Hs: To be announced. Text: Principles of General Chemistry, Martin Silberberg, 2nd Ed, McGraw Hill, 2010. Note Outlines: Optional outlines in “skeletal” form may be purchased at Target Copy, 1412 W. University Avenue. Description: CHM 2046 is a second semester of general chemistry for engineering majors requiring more depth in chemical principles. Topics include chemical equilibria, acid‐base and aqueous equlibria, chemical thermodynamics, electrochemical devices, descriptive inorganic materials, transition metal coordination, and introductory organic chemistry. Prerequisites: CHM 2045 or CHM 2095. Attendance: Attendance will not be taken, but it is highly recommended that you attend every lecture. Remember that your instructor writes the exams. Therefore, concepts emphasized in lecture should be given top priority. Staying home and “reading” the textbook, studying the content on Sakai, and cramming for exams will not work in CHM 2046! Missing just one class is a proven effective way to be left behind. Homework: Problems will be assigned from the end of the chapters. Homework will be handed in to your TA at the beginning of class on the Tuesday due date. Late work will not be accepted. There will be 12 homework assignments, and you will be allowed to drop your two lowest scores. Each homework assignment will be graded on four (4) point scale: 4 = flawless; 3 = good but not perfect; 2 = average effort; 1 = poorly presented; 0 = incomplete or not submitted. Mini‐Exams: Twelve (12) mid‐semester 20‐30 minute exams will be offered on Wednesdays at 4:05 PM sharp starting on January 25th. Two of these exams will be dropped. Each exam will be graded with a whole number on a 10 point scale: 10 = A; 9 = A‐; 8 = B+; 7 = B; 6 = B‐; 5 = C+; 4 = C; 3 = D; 2 = E; 1 = E; 0 = E. Make‐up Policy: There will be NO make‐up exams given. A missed exam will count as a drop. Final Exam: A mandatory two‐hour final exam will be given during exam block 28E at 5:30‐7:30 PM on Saturday, April 28th. The final exam will be worth 60 points. Calculators: Calculators are NOT permitted on exams. Cell Phones: Cell phones must be turned OFF during lectures and exams! Grading: Your letter grade will be based on a total of 200 points. Point ranges are fixed will NOT be “curved.” Letter grades will be available on ISIS, late night, Monday, May 7th. 12 Mini‐Exams (2 drops) 100 Final exam 60 12 Homework (2 drops) 40 TOTAL 200 Minimum Targets: 180 (90%) A‐; 160 (80%) B+; 140 (70%) B; 120 (60%) B‐; 100 (50%) C+; 80 (40%) C Grade point values: 4.00 A; 3.67 A‐; 3.33 B+; 3.00 B; 2.67 B‐; 2.33 C+; 2.00 C; 1.67 C‐; 1.33 D+; 1.00 D; 0.67 D‐. For more information: http://isis.ufl.edu/minusgrades.html Sakai: All exam and homework scores will be under the “my grades” link in Sakai. Check Sakai frequently for content additions under the “resources” link and for class announcements. http://lss.at.ufl.edu Do not email the instructor in E‐learning, please use jjk@chem.ufl.edu for all course‐related email. GCLC: The General Chemistry Learning Center, a tutoring location, can be found in Flint Hall (FLI) 257. TAs will be available during most business hours Monday‐Friday. Any TA present in the GCLC is able to assist with topics from this course. If a TA is not assisting his/her students, he/she is supposed to help you. One should take serious advantage of this free resource.
