PURDUE UNIVERSITY SOURCES OF HELP AND ANSWERS FOR CHM STUDENTS Professor You can attend office hours or make an appointment with your professor. E-mail addresses (the best way) and phone numbers are on the cover page of this packet of information. TA Office Hours, WTHR 116 Each CHM 11500 TA will hold a one—hour office hour each week where any CHM 11500 student can go to get help with chemistry from any CHM 11500 TA at no charge. This is about 20 hours each week where free help is available from the CHM l 1500 staff. Your TA is the person who has the closest contact with you in this very large course. The teaching assistants in the Department of Chemistry are not just "a bunch of grad students." They are graduate students who have been through a training program in teaching and tutoring skills and may have several years experience in teaching. If you are having a problem with some aspect(s) of the course, go first to your TA. lie/she wants to help you and is available for consultation both at specific hours and by appointment. Feel free to go to the office hours with a classmate or small group if you feel uncomfortable going alone. You may attend the office hours of any of the TA’s, not just yours. Chemistry Resource Room, WTHR 117 The staff in this area can answer many of your chemistry related questions but going to a CHM 1 1500 TA with your chemistry questions is recommended. The Chemistry Resource room is also an area where you can study alone or with others. Various kinds of help for all general chemistry students are available. The resources include: a Free help and tutoring from the staff assigned to this area > A variety of course materials (lecture notes, previous exams, the course text, and lab manuals) > Numerous audiovisual and tutorial programs 0n chemistry A student ID card is required to check out most of the materials in the Chemistry Resource Room. The Chemistry Resource Room schedule will be posted outside WTHR 117. General Chemistry Office, BRWN 1144, 49-45250 The staff in this office handles all the administrative details associated with the course. Go to this office to get signatures on university forms, to report absences and complete absence forms. Staff members are there to help you but they must follow the professors’ and university’s rules and policies. Course Coordinator/Supervisor The course coordinator/ supervisor, located in the General Chemistry Office (BRWN 1144), will handle policy issues or problems in the course. The course coordinator/supervisor is also responsible for maintaining student grade records dealing with student absences. CHM 11500 Blackboard Courses Upwto~date course information will be posted on the CHM 11500 Blackboard courses. Links to other web sites that provide useful information for learning chemistry will be posted on the Blackboard courses. You will find links to the: a» TA Office Hour Schedule > Purdue Academic Success Center > Purdue General Chemistry Help Site > OWL On-Line Learning 2 PURDUE UNIVERSITY ADVICE FROM YOUR PROFESSOR A University is like a Health and Fitness Center for your Brain When you pay tuition to an academic institutiou such as Purdue, it is like paying fees to join a Health and Fitness Center. Purdue is a place to exercise and develop your brain “muscle”; health clubs or fitness centers focus on exercising other muscles of your body. Your membership in a “mentai exercise club” such as Purdue gives you the opportunity to take advantage of the resources Purdue makes available to exercise your brain just as joining a health club gives you the opportunity to take advantage of the health club’s equipment and resources. Simply being a member of either “club” does not guarantee success. As with a health club, the benefit you gain from a “mental exercise club” depends on the amount, and more importantly, the quality of effort you exert. How Do I Learn From Lectures? You can 't [eamfi'om lectures you do not attend them or do not think about the information as it is presented during lectures. You are responsible for all material covered and announcements made in lectures. Before Class Complete the assigned reading and review the notes from the previous class. Download and print the student notes for lecture from the course WebCT page. During class Write the date of the lecture on the student notes at the beginning of class if it is not on the first slide. Write information that is discussed in lecture, but is not On the notes. The professor will give more information than is on the notes. Try to answer every question the professor asks and work every problem presented in lectures. Write down each step of every problem or example even if you do not understand the step. You can always ask about it later. Write a question mark next to things you don't understand so you can return to them after class. Use shorthand or abbreviations so that you can write quickly, but understandably. After Class 0 Review your notes while things are still fresh in your mind. Check your text in order to understand those items that you did not understand and marked in lecture. If necessary, use office hours with any CHM l 1500 TA to help you. Never miss lecture. Chemistry is cumulative. What is presented tomorrow depends upon your knowledge of what was covered today. If you will miss class, then get a friend to take notes for you. PURDUE UNIVERSITY 3 CHM 11500 Advice From Your Professor - It will take you at least three hours out of class for every hour we spend in class in order to study and learn the material. This means about 6 hours of studying. You may spend this time working on your lecture notes, reading the text, studying the required material, doing OWL homework, studying for exams, or other things. You may find yourself spending more than 9 hours per week if your math skills need improvement or if you took a chemistry course a few years ago. But if you are committed to your goals and dreams then dedicate yourself to Spending the necessary time to study and do well. - Copies of lecture notes take by a graduate instructor will be available in the Chemistry Resource Room (WTI—IR 117) within a day or two following the lectures. However, photocopies of these notes are not a substitute for attending lectures. ° Audio recordings of the lectures can be downloaded from the Boilercast website. Finally, your ability to understand what you are currently learning may depend on your already having mastered earlier material. So, study chemistry every day and correct your mistakes as they occur. When Should I Do Homework? Your assigned homework is considered to be a minimum requirement for keeping focused and learning the material in each chapter. You should practice solving additional problems from the text similar to those assigned and some of those will be available on OWL. The following guidelines should be helpful if you want to do well in a technical course such as CHM 1 1500 which will probably involve relearning concepts or learning concepts that you did not have in your high school chemistry course. Learning new material requires constant reinforcement which means you may have to change your study habits. - Do some work in chemistry every day. Work at least two chemistry problems each day. If you are drawing a blank about the problem after 10-15 minutes, go on to another a problem. Seek help from a CHM 11500 TA the next day during office hours. After a day or so, solve related problems in the text. - Even though OWL usually asks for your final answer only, it is important that you write down your complete problem solutions. You can fool yourself into believing your understand if you do not write your steps. You must practice if you are going to be proficient and efficient during exam times! 4 PURDUE UNIVERSITY 2m amp I swam at mm mm Emmmm 9 5V wmsfig 305 mSES ENE Lazoficummnwmou - Q3 02 9 s8 8:28 22mm 30 Em 8";me 2,: ma 3 m8 204 ocozooém a H EEG” MOE (,3 E5084 0% mum Bmmofimo Eavom Q :3 5:35 30264 E muonowmm @Eom v52 “33 on mumomom 3.500 no 325% maudwooohm bommm “5 £330 35% E G ADV @5580 330202 8 Edflhsoo mfifimmum 553m mooQ :OEwNwEmmem was 5:33on 3:538 a 35808 Bommv hbvzummvaoboofiv ,kwflflom Rummage 259 ES mfifiewmmm “hmoomobovmm Mm 35on Emosuufi .mmofiwoevhm mufinooHoE mo wvmmam mumbfio “mayhem £33 “Boo 0.8 mmoufiofi “Eamon “E mflmbmu @2335 2264 BEES wqom “meson E2960 $203 0E3 Aflovofi 2:308 w> E2550 m> oEoc mam: H8360 .m> 2:2 8 2533 m. mm 3:55 «388m “£3208 noummfiow .mva “hocmmglmwsfirw 0605mm mucomobovmm 2886* n WEEEEQD maoufizmmmoo $.22 Q35 "macaw £2925 Hummus” “30888qu ammo?“ Qmofioav madman: 2me nbwmwfiono 53052 90:23 2mm? awowofiwmuxnommfi “bumfifino E2052 ,xmfimfimfimmm $309 nbwmwaugo 522,2 953 9% «mmouwgommfiwb $3823 omfiscbom £228on 6&on "33250 ommmao 32:30 Q “we a; 5&2 soc wmawfim gem mamnmw new 8308 9:5qu 38 mamam hm: Emu é maufifim ESQ EN 83 .2584 S 2 .1 2 NH 3 mxm . .mm on EN EN .

However, each professor understands that learning chemistry is not impossible and that a variety of different teaching and learning methods may assist with the learning process. In CHM 11500 you will have the Opportunity to team individually, with partners and in groups in lectures, recitations, labs and outside of class study time. Experts report that to adequateiy learn new material in coliege, two (2) hours of effective study outside regulariy scheduled class time each week per one (1) credit hour is required. CHM 11500 is a 4— credit course so this suggests that eight (8) hours per week of effective study outside of regular ciass time is necessary to learn what the professors want you to learn. The department provides several sources of help for you in this process at no cost. These include the professors, the CHM E1500 TAs and the Chemistry Resource Room. Everyone is aware of the diversity of skills and personal issues within this large course so we are concerned that each individual be treated as fairly as possible in ail aspects of the course. Consequently, we have established rules, policies and procedures that apply to all students in CHM 11500. As a student in CHM 11500, on are res onsibie for knowin and followin the rules, quotieies and procedures. DETERMINING YOUR COURSE GRADE No extra credit will be available. Each of the assigned course activities is worth the number of points listed below. Before course grades are finalized after the final exam, the foilowing scores will he dropped. - your lowest homework score - your lowest lab score The total number of points (1000) for CHM 11500 are distributed as follows. OWL Homework Assignments (scaled) 140 pts Labs (best 10 of 11 at 25 pts each) 250 pts Exams (3 at 130 pts each) 390 pts Final Exam (comprehensive) 220 pts After the Final Exam your course grade will be based on the following scale. A: 850 - 1000 pts B: 750 — 849 pts C: 650 — 749 pts D: 550 - 649 pts F: 0 — 549 pts OR if you miss or fail to complete three (3) or more of the 11 scheduled 25-pt lab projects without excused absences. YOU WILL EARN AN AUTOMATIC GRADE OF “F” IN CHEM 11500 THIS SEMESTER If YOU FAIL TO COMPLETE THREE (3) OR MORE OF THE 11 SCHEDULED 25~pt LAB SESSIONS. FAIL TO COMPLETE INCLUDES: > missing laboratory sessions without excused absences. b failure—to-complete a laboratory report as directed. Completion of a lab project includes the following equally important components: 1) attendance in the iaboratory PURDUE UNIVERSITY 7‘ Chemistry 1 1500 Policies Spring 2009 2) participation in the iaboratory work 3) participation in the preparation of the iab project report and 4) completion and submission of a satisfactory lab project report. Failure to submit a lab report counts the same as a missed lab. ACADEMIC INTEGRITY Your integrity is your greatest asset. The CHM 11500 professors view academic dishonesty as a serious offense, so we hope that cheating never arises as a problem in this course. The Office of the Dean of Students publication, Academic Integrity: A Guide for Students, is availabie at http://www.purdue.edu/ADOS/publicationshtm and is an excellent summary of expectations for Purdue students. Consequences of Academic Dishonesty (that is, cheating.) For any cheating on an exam, the student(s) involved will > receive an "F" for the course. > be reported to the Dean of Students Office. For a first offense invoiving a laboratory, student(s) wili > receive a grade of zero for that lab and it will count as a failure to complete lab. > lose any benefit of the doubt for a borderline grade at the end of the semester. > be reported to the Dean of Students Office. For a second offense involving a laboratory, the student(s) will > receive a grade of "F" for the course. > be reported to the Dean of Students Office. Examples of Academic Dishonesty (cheating) While the following list of examples of academic dishonesty is not complete, the examples are provided for your information. If you have any questions at alt about permissible behavior, save yourself some heartache and ask before acting. 1. Copying or possessing an unauthorized crib or unauthorized information (written or eiectronic) during an exam. 2. Copying from another student’s exam or work; allowing another student to copy your work. 3. Copying lab data or a lab report; giving your data or lab report to someone else to copy. This includes tiles on computer disks as well as paper copies. 4. Changing data for a tab project to fit the perceived answer (that is, what you think the answer shouid be). Using someone else‘s data in a lab project summary as if it were your own. 6. Submitting a lab project summary or other work that you did not do. LA 8 PURDUE UNIVERSITY Chemistry 11500 Policies Spring 2009 ATTENDANCE/ABSENCES We do NOT give make—up exams or labs. Absence forms are to be completed in BRWN 1144 for an exam or lab absence due to one of the foliowing reasons. The foliowing will be the oniy acceptable reasons for missing an exam or a lab and consideration of a prorated score for the missed activity. > You have a serious, major medical illness that requires immediate, emergency medical attention. Students have the responsibility to provide verifiable documentation of the situation to the course supervisor in BRWN 1144. Verification information would be a copy of the admittance and/or release paperwork from an emergency room with data and time of medical treatment. b Death of an immediate family member. Complete an absence form in BRWN 1144 before leaving campus to attend funeral services. Return with an obituary that verifies the date and iocation of the funeral or memorial service. Students are to provide verifiable documentation of the situation to the course supervisor in BRWN 1 144 within two weeks after returning to campus. Verification information would be an obituary from a public record such as a newspaper. > A direct conflict with another exam, class, or required* university activity. An absence form for this type of conflict must be completed with verification at least one week (7 calendar days) before the conflict. Do this in BRWN 1 144. Verification would be a cepy of your class or exam or class schedule or letter from the professor. We will try to accommodate legitimate conflicts but you wili need to take care of the paperwork before the conflict. The excuses and paperwork will not be handled or considered after the conflict has occurred. * Club activities will not be excused unless the activity is a professional activity directiy associated with your major. If you wiil miss more than two (2) labs due to NCAA athletics, PMO, band, or religious activities, you must provide documentation to the staff in BRWN 1 144 and change your iab section by the end of week 2 of the semester. Otherwise you will receive no credit for iab absences that are associated with these activities although with documentation, these zeros will not count as “failure to complete” labs. If you miss an exam or lab for some reason that is not on the list above, that is, an unexcused absence, that score will not be considered for prorating. Reporting Absences Telling your graduate instructor that you have missed or will miss an exam or a 1313 is not sufficient. Absence forms must be completed in BRWN 1144. > Conflicts You Know About Before an Exam or Lab. An absence form for this type of conflict must be cornpleted with an attached verification letter at least one week (7 calendar days) before the conflict in BRWN 1144. We will try to accommodate legitimate conflicts as stated in the previous paragraphs but the excuses and paper work will not be handled after the conflict has occurred. PURDUE UNIVERSITY 9 Chemistry 11500 Policies Spring 2009 v Emergencies. If you miss an exam or a lab due to a major medical emergency or death in your immediate family, then report your situation iimnediately to the General Chemistry Office, 49-45252. Go to the General Chemistry Office, BRWN 1144, and complete an absence form with verifying documentation within two weeks after the absence so that arrangements can be made to possibly prorate that lab or exam. ACADEMIC ACCOMMODATIONS FOR DISABILITIES If you require accommodations to access course activities or materials, the accommodations must be described and approved by the Disability Resource Center, Room 830, Young Hall, 302 Wood Street, 765 —494— 1247. To implement accommodations you must follow the instructions listed as “RcSponsibilities of the Student” in the letter prepared by the Disability Resource Center. Give one copy of the accommodation letter to your professor, not your TA. Take another copy to the CHM 11500 course coordinator/supervisor in BRWN 1144 within the first three (3) weeks of the semester to discuss your accommodations. If you have accommodations identified and approved during the semester, you are encouraged to initiate a meeting with the CHM 11500 course coordinator/supervisor to discuss the accommodations within one (1) week of the date of the letter. Timely notification of the CHM 11500 course coordinator/supervisor is critical for timely implementation. COURSE ACTIVITIES Readings Reading assignments will be given for each lecture. These assignments will be announced in lectures and posted 011 Blackboard courses. Lectures You will be responsible for any announcements or course changes that are made in all lectures. Lecture notes taken by a graduate instmctor will be available in the Resource Room, WTHR 117. Audiotapes of lectures will be available at the BoilerCast website [http:l/www.itap.purduc.edu/boilercast]. The use of ceil phones, pagers, ipods or other electronic devices not being used for instruction purposes are distracting for everyone. The use of these types of devices in a classroom, in addition to talking with your neighbor, reading the newspaper, etc. is considered to be inappropriate behavior for group learning environments where others are trying to listen and understand what is going on. Please respect your colleagues and turn off this equipment in lectures as well as in recitations and labs. Exams Attendance is required. We do not give make-up exams in CHM 11500. Before Exam 1, you will receive an exam seat assignment for the entire semester. It will be posted on the CHM l 1500: Exam Seating Blackboard course. Take your seat assignment, simple scientific calculator with exponential, logarithm and square root functions, and a #2 lead pencil with you to the exam. Cell phones and programmable or alpha—numeric calculators may not be used during an exam. You may not share a calculator with another student. 1 0 PURDUE UNIVERSITY Chemistfl 11500 Policies Spring 2009 > If you are absent for an exam, follow the procedures for reporting absences. r Students will not be allowed to leave the examination area during the first 15 minutes of the scheduled exam period. Students may arrive late for the exam in this isnminute window. After the first 15 minutes, no one will be allowed to enter the examination area. * If you arrive late for an exam (within the 15-minute window) you will not receive additional time to complete the exam or scan sheet. Hour Exams Three evening exams will be in the Elliott Hall of Music. Exam I February 5 (Th), 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM Exam II March 5 (Th), 6:30 PM — 7:30 PM Exam 111 April 9 (Th), 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM Final Exam to be announced Wait until you know the date of the final exam before you make travel plans that might cenfliet with the exam. Early exams will not be given to accommodate your travel plans. The final exam will be a two-hour exam. University policy on Final Exams states: “Students .S'Cheduledfor more than two Gina!) examinations in one calendar day are entitled to reschedule any examinations in excess of two . . . It is the responsibiliw oflire student to make necessary arrangements before the last week of regularly scheduled classes. " On-Line Homework Each on—line weekly assignment will consist of required questions and possibly optional questions. Required questions will contribute to your homework point total, optional questions will not. However, optional tutorials can be used to help understand how to work problems. Other optional questions can be used as practice and/or review for exams. Assignments are to be completed on—line at the OWL website (http://www.cengage.com/owl). You will need an access code, your Purdue lO—digit ID, and a password to register for OWL. Information about access codes and registration are on pages 15 — i 8. You will have a maximum of five(5) attempts to complete each homework assignment before the listed due date. The highest score of the five attempts will be recorded as your score for that homework. Homework will be scored and recorded on-iine so there will be no hand grading or regrading of homework. If you miss the posted homework deadline, you will be able to continue working on the problems but you will not receive points for work done after the deadline. PSO Session (Practice, Study, Observation) You will be responsible for any information given or problems done in these scheduled weekly sessions. These sessions provide you with the opportunity to ask questions and work with your classmates and graduate instructor in small groups. However, 50 minutes is not sufficient time to answer all the questions that all students may have. If you have difficulties or have questions about certain problems, you should go to the CHM l 1500 graduate instructors office hours in WTHR l loG/H and ask for help. You can go to these office hours by yourself, with a classmate, or in a small group. PURDUE UNIVERSITY 1 l Chemistg 11500 Policies Spring 2009 Laboratory Attendance is required since CHM 11500 is a laboratory course. You and a partner or group wiil complete each lab project including the lab report during the regularly scheduled laboratory time unless otherwise noted in the lab schedule. You will not be able to make—up a missed lab or reschedule an individual lab, but you will be responsible for the material covered in any lab you miss since questions based on the lab projects may appear on exams. You will fail CHM 1500 if you fail to complete three (3) or more of the eleven (1 l) scheduled lab projects. If you miss a lab, follow the procedures for reporting absences. You are expected to arrive on time, properly dressed and prepared for lab work when you arrive. If you arrive at lab more than 10 minutes late or improperly dressed, then you will be considered unprepared to do the lab work and will be required to leave the lab for the day. You will not get a grade for that tab and it will count as a failure to complete lab. If you arrive l— 10 minutes late for lab, answers to pre-iab questions will be considered late and not accepted for grading. The graduate instructors must closo the laboratories by the end of your scheduled lab period (that is, 10:20 AM, 2:20 PM or 5:40 PM). At that time all equipment must be cleaned and put away, lab drawers locked, and lab reports turned in. Lab Reports Lab reports will be due before leaving lab the day lab work is completed and the tab is closed, that is, 10:20 AM, 2:20 PM, or 5 :40 PM. Graduate instructors do not have authority to change the date or time when work is due. Lab reports must be written in ink on the report sheets that you will get in lab. Grading criteria for iab reports are described below. Late Lab Reports Fifty percent (50%) of the maximum points, will be deducted from the score of all members of a group for any lab report that is up to 24 hours Eate. No laboratory report will be accepted and graded beyond 24 hours after the report is due. Both students (or the entire group) will not receive a score for a lab if the repOIT is more than 24 hours late and it will count as a failure to complete iab. In order to get any credit for pro-lab, you must participate in lab then help prepare and submit a lab report. Caution about Working With a Lab Partner You will be working with a partner or group for most of the laboratory projects. Each pair or group will turn in a single lab report unless otherwise stated. While we encourage you to discuss concepts with other members of your class, the lab reports are to be unique efforts by you and your paitner or group. You and your partner or group share the responsibility for writing lab reports that honestly reflect your work. It is also your responsibility as a team to ensure that everyone whose name is on the report participated in preparing it. Grading Criteria for Lab Reports Your reports will be graded primarily on correctness and completeness. v The report is compiete. r The report is organized correctly. r The presentation is legible and logical. Headings and subheadings are used to identify or describe the contents of a particular section. Graphs and tables have titles to describe the contents. Sentences are complete. The data analysis and calculations have been done with the data your team collected during the lab period. The data analysis, including units of measurements and significant figures, are correct. Chemical terms and concepts have been used correctly throughout the report. Your conclusions and results are consistent with your data and calculations. If a student forfeits the responsibility of preparing a lab report to a partner (or other students in a group) and that student changes or falsifies data or plagiarizes any or all parts of the report, then ALL students share the negative consequences associated with academic dishonesty, that is, cheating. V V V Y 12 PURDUE UNIVERSITY Chemistry 11500 Policies Spring 2009 Grading Questions If you have a question about the score on any of your lab work, first ask your graduate instructor for clarification. if the graduate instructor cannot answer your questions, you may take the graded paper to the course coordinator/supervisor in BRWN l 144 for possible regrading. You will need to do this within one (1) week (that is, 7 calendar days) after the graded paper has been returned to you. Your work will have to have been typewritten or written in ink for a possible regrade. The course coordinator will regrade the entire paper, not just the part where you think an error has been made. Saving Graded Papers Save alt returned graded papers and your exams until after you have received your course ietter grade for CHM 11500. If you claim that an incorrect score has been recorded for you, we will need to see your paper(s) before we can consider any change in the score or your course grade. Checking Your Scores Shortly after each of the first three exams and shortly before the final exam, all your scores to date will be avaiiabie to you at the Blackboard course site. (Your graduate instructor will have a paper copy of all the scores as well.) You are expected to check your scores when they are posted. You must report any errors to your graduate instructor or to the course supervisor within two weeks of the time they were posted. All disputed scores must be resolved with your graduate instructor or Ms. Miller, the course supervisor, before the final exam. There wili be no score correction considerations after the finai exam. Changing Sections During week 1 of the semester you can change your course scheduie on the Banner registration system. To change a lecture or lab section after week i, take your Drop/Add form (Form 23) to BRWN 1144. Because of high enrollment and the processes associated with Blackboard and OWL registration and enrollment, we wili NOT make a section change for students after week 2 of the semester. If you change sections after you check into a iocker drawer, you must check out of your old locker drawer before checking into a drawer in your new section. Lab Check—out Dropping the Course If you drop CHM 11500 after having checked into a locker drawer, it is your responsibility to check—out of your locker drawer during the next regularly scheduled tab. If you do not check out immediately, then you must go to lab at the reguiarly scheduled time iisted in the lab schedule and check out of your locker drawer. Scheduled Lab Check-Out Lab check-out will start at the regularly scheduled lab time listed in the lab schedule and continue during the regularly scheduled lab time until the graduate instructor has checked equipment in each lab drawer of those students who are present. if this process takes iess than the full three (3) hours, then the graduate instructor wiil close lab and the deadline for that lab’s checkout will be declared. We wili not be able to accommodate a check-out process for any student who arrives after the scheduled/designated check~out period. Failure to Check—Out of Lab For anyone who dOes not check out of a locker drawer by the scheduled or designated time: I- his/her padlock wilt be cut (this may also happen for students who arrive late for lab check-out) > he/shc will be charged a $45 fee I- he/she forfeits the right to determine the acceptability of all locker drawer equipment. PURDUE UNIVERSITY 13 Chemistry 11500 Policies Spring 2009 SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS IN LABS Safety policies MUST be followed in the laboratories. Everyone’s safety is a primary concern in laboratory instructional situations and must be taken very seriously by everyone in a lab. We don’t establish and enforce rules to harass students, graduate instructors, or staff but we must comply with EPA regulations to create a safe working environment for everyone. Ultimately it is everyone’s responsibility to watch out for everyone’s safety in a laboratory setting. The rules are based on many years of experience by the CHM 1 1500 professors and staff. Failure to comply with safety regulations has serious consequences. if you are dismissed from lab for violation of safety regulations or department lab dress code, you wili not get a grade for that lab and it will be counted as an unexcused absence and as a failure to comlete lab. SAFETY POLICIES FOR CHEMISTRY LABS AT PURDUE Safety Goggles Each student must have approved safety goggles (not safety glasses) and wear these approved safety goggles in the laboratory at all times, including the day of check-out. You will be dismissed from lab and lose all credit for an experiment or lose your opportunity to check out if you do not wear your goggles as required. Safety goggles may be purchased at the local bookstores, the chemistry storeroom, or outside of WTHR 200 during the first week of the semester. Appropriate Clothing Chemistry department regulations state that you must wear clothing in the laboratory that protects your skin from neck to your ankles, feet, and tees when you are sitting, standing or reaching. You are expected to arrive at lab properly dressed for lab work. You will be dismissed from lab and i03e all credit for an experiment or lose your opportunity to check out if you do not wear acceptable clothing. Unacceptable clothing includes, but it not limited to: sleeveless or bare midriff tops, clothes that are ripped or have holes in the fabric that expose your skin, shorts, short skirts, open-toed and/or open- heeled shoes and sandals (with or without socks), balletvtype or house slippers. Gloves Gloves serve two purposes: they protect your skin from potential contaminants and keep any potential contaminants inside the lab. You will be required to wear protective gloves for many lab activities. When you leave a lab, take the gloves off and throw them away. Get new gloves when you return to lab. Contact Lenses Wearing contact lenses in the laboratory is not a wise idea: you are encouraged to wear glasses instead. If you wear contact lenses in the laboratory, you must inform your graduate instructor of this at the beginning of the semester. Hair If your hair is longer than shoulder length you must tie it behind your head in order to avoid accidental contact with Open flames or chemicals that might be on the lab bench. Rubber bands are available in the laboratory. Food and Beverages You may not eat, drink, or bring food into the laboratory. Electronics The only electronic equipment allowed in the lab will be calculators and equipment being used for instruction and learning. Handling and Disposal of Hazardous Materials You will be required to follow the instructions printed in your lab manual or given to you by the graduate instructor or others for appropriate handling and disposal of any hazardous materials. 14 PURDUE UNIVERSITY How to Use Qn—Line wWmeb-Based Learning (OWL) CHM 11500, Purdue University, Spring 2009 We will be using OWL in CHM 11500 this semester.
