Office hours: TTh 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. Room 207B Chemistry. Course Material: Text: Principles of Instrumental Analysis, 6th ed.; (Skoog/Holler/Crouch). This course covers electronics, spectroscopy, electrochemistry, chromatography, and selected topics. Prereq: Chem 3451/3452 Quantitative Analysis. Homework: Homework will be assigned from the problems at the end of each chapter and spectral interpretations. Exams: There will be 3-4 exams and a comprehensive final exam. Also there will be quizzes over the reading assignments given periodically throughout the semester. Dates for exams will be announced one week ahead of time. The final is scheduled for 5/15/2009 from 8:00-10:00 a.m. in Room 352. *Absolutely no make-up exams will be given without a signed physician’s note. Grading: Exams, quizzes, and assignments will each be given a total point value. The student’s final grade will be: (the total number of points received/total number of points possible) x 100. Guaranteed Course Grade: A – 90% B – 80% C – 70% D – 60% F < 60% Additional Information: (a) According to University policy, the grade of I (incomplete) cannot be given as a substitute for a failing grade in a course. (b) Statement of ADA Compliance: The chemistry department cooperates with the Office of Disability Accommodations to make reasonable accommodations for qualified students with disabilities. If applicable, please present your request along with an official written verification from the ODA before the end of the first week of classes.
