Chem 171 syllabus 1 Sp12 Chemistry 171 Introduction to Experimentation Spring 2012 elcome to Introduction to Experimentation (160:171) . This handout provides information concerning lab policies and procedures. You are responsible for all the information that follows. Failure to comply with the rules contained in this packet can result in a loss of points and a consequent reduction in grade. No appeal will be considered on the grounds that you did not understand the rules. LEARNING GOALS AS MEASURED BY PRELABS, POSTLABS, EXAMS AND QUIZZES To explore the principles of chemistry in a safe and environmentally appropriate manner To motivate the students to enhance their creativity and problem solving skills in the lab To understand the basics of the scientific method by probing, and exploring the fundamental concepts of chemistry To hands-on learn and apply the fundamental concepts of chemistry thought in first year chemistry courses including: Physical Properties of Matter Separation Techniques, Empirical Formulas Titrations Chemical Reactivity Thermochemistry Kinetics To apply the above concepts to problems relevant to general chemistry To stimulate the ability to relate the concepts above to each other in ways that were not directly performed in the lab Required Items: by week 2 1. Make sure you are registered. Part of your termbill, if you registered for 171 was a fee that covers the manual and the disposable items.

Chem 171 syllabus 2 Sp12 Immediately following is the quiz that covers the previous and current experimentation. All quizzes are closed-book. Students taking a quiz with a lab book or notebook open will have the quiz confiscated and receive a grade of zero on that quiz. Latecomers will not get extra time or be allowed to make up the quiz, and no credit will be given for pre- lab assignment. You will perform the experiment after your instructor discusses various aspects of the work, changes in procedure, and any tips. During this time, go to the
