CHM 24100 Spring 2011 Course Information Chemistry 24100 is an introductory course in descriptive inorganic chemistry. It is designed primarily to introduce the behavior of the main group elements as well as to introduce the models that chemists use to describe and understand that behavior.

2 GRADES Your grade in CHM 24100 will reflect your performance in several areas, especially: Memorization and recall of important facts, including the chemistry of selected elements and their compounds. Application of models used to describe, explain, or predict this behavior. Use of the facts and models to predict or explain new situations. Laboratory work. The point breakdown is as follows: Hour Exams (2-3, 3-3, 4-11) 240 pts* Comprehensive Final 160 pts* Problem Sets (low score dropped) 45 pts (after scaling) spot grading, effort Laboratory Experiments** 120 pts (after scaling) Comprehensive Lab Quiz 15 pts Total 500 pts *For students who complete all exams we drop the lowest hour exam or 0.5 times the final, whichever is lower. **We drop the lowest ½ lab score (if a 40-pt lab, 1/4 if an 80-pt lab) before calculating the raw lab score and scaling by 120/460. Students who satisfactorily complete all lab assignments on time earn a bonus of 20 pts. before scaling. Laboratory is a very important component of CHM 24100 and you must attend. Attendance will be taken. You cannot pass the course if you have three or more uncompleted laboratory reports at the end of the semester or miss more than 3 unexcused lab periods. See the “Laboratory Schedule” section for the due dates for all written laboratory reports. The grade of unexcused late reports will be reduced by 50%, if the report is turned in before 4:00 p.m. of the
