Chem 171 syllabus 1 f10 Chemistry 171 Introduction to Experimentation Fall 2010 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 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. If your name does not appear on our roster, you are not in the course and will not receive a manual, goggles or the rest of the chem kit. 2.

This course is a laboratory course. The grade you receive in chem. 171 is based primarily on what you do during the labs. You are being graded on technique and accuracy. Occasionally, a student can do all the proper steps in the correct order, and still have bad results. This is usually because of poor technique, but regardless of the reason, we grade on the data you turn in. Grades and scores will be posted on Sakai. Laboratory operations Before each lab, you must do 2 things. 1. You must fill out a list of chemicals you will encounter in that experiment and what precautions you must take in handling them. This form will be found in the Resources section of Sakai. Fill it out and save it. Put the filled out form in your drop box in Sakai. 2. The pre-lab assignment is due at the beginning of each lab. Immediately following is the quiz that covers
