Describe how a system and surroundings exchange energy at the microscopic and macroscopic levels. CHEM 161 Syllabus Fall 2013 p. 2 of 4 V. Course Requirements/Attendance Attendance: The lecture meets daily for 50 minutes each day. Attendance is extremely important and will be taken at every class meeting. Students who are not present to participate in more than 10 class meetings (or 2 weeks of class) may be dropped. Laboratory experiments may require up to 3 hours in lab each week, and students missing more than two laboratory experiments will receive a failing grade in the course. Lecture Notes: Students may obtain lecture notes, exam study guides, and other resources from our class Website. Students are required to download and print lecture notes for all chapters from the Website. Students who bring and complete their printed lecture notes in lecture will receive homework credit periodically. Homework: Students are responsible for reading the assigned chapters and completing the assigned in‐chapter exercises and end‐of‐chapter problems to prepare for quizzes and exams. The end‐of‐chapter problems (indicated on the first page of each set of lecture notes) must be completed neatly in a bound composition notebook (spiral notebooks will not be accepted). Students must show all necessary work, not simply the answers, to receive full credit. Homework notebooks will be collected in class on the days of Exams 2, 3, and 4 and the final exam. Laboratory: Check the CHEM 161 Schedule for the experiment to be carried out each week. To prepare for lab, read through each experiment, and prepare your lab notebook with the purpose, procedure, and data tables. Online Canvas Pre‐labs are due at 9am each Tuesday, and lab notebooks are due the start of each lab period. Lab may take the entire 3‐hour period. Each experiment is set up for one we...
