Instructor: Dr. Robert Hancock Office: DO-234 Office Hours: TBA Office Phone: 962-3025 Lecture(s): T,R at 8:00 am in DO-202 Lab: Consult your schedule for your lab meeting time and location Web Address: http://www.uncw.edu/chem/courses/hancock/chm101 Course Description: CHM-101 (4 cr. hr.) is the first semester of a two-semester sequence that introduces a number of topics that are fundamental to the fields of inorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, and biochemistry. These topics include chemical nomenclature, the periodic table, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, atomic and molecular structure, and chemical bonding. Along with the lecture, there is a laboratory that meets for three hours each week. The laboratory provides hands-on experience with chemical concepts and teaches important laboratory techniques as well as safety procedures used by chemists. It provides you the opportunity to work as part of a team to solve chemical problems that require direct observation, data collection, and analysis. While there are no university prerequisites for CHM-101, we assume that you have good algebra skills and have had a chemistry course in high school. CHM-101 is a prerequisite for CHM-102. Attendance: Attendance will be taken regularly in lecture. It is expected that you will attend all lectures, take all exams, and complete all other assignments. Students who miss lecture should consult with other class members to obtain notes and review any material posted on the Web. Attendance at the 80% level or above will be considered in determining your final grade if you are on the borderline between two grade categories. You must attend your scheduled lab each week. If you miss a lab, you will receive a score of 0 for that day. There are no make-up labs. At the end of the semester, your lowest lab grade will be dropped. Students who miss more than four laboratory sessions will receive a grade of "F" for CHM-101. No one will be admitted to lab after the first 10 minutes or without a lab manual or safety glasses. If you arrive more than 10 minutes late, or you do not have both your lab manual and safety glasses, you will be counted absent for that day. Grading Policy:
