       Attendance policy:    Attendance at lectures is strongly recommended—
                             however it is not required. Attendance at laboratories
                             is required. Two or more unexcused lab absences will
                             result in a grade of F for Chem 142. Missed labs cannot
                             be made up. You may be excused from lab for illness
                             (provided a doctor’s note is made available to me
                             clearly stating the days you were ill), or because of
                             hazardous weather conditions.

                             national exam on topics from the full year course.
     Exam absence policy:    Absence from an examination without an excused
                             absence (medical, or hazardous weather) will result in
                             a ZERO for that particular examination. NO make-up
                             exams will be given without an excused absence.
  Blackboard quizzes:     Multiple attempt quizzes on Blackboard will be given
                          during the quarter.

 Homework problems:       Problem solving is an essential part of your study of
                          chemistry. As you study, you should be working
                          problems from your textbook on each topic. It is
                          strongly suggested that you work the following
                          problems which will serve as a guide for material for
                          quizzes and exams. The answers and worked-out
                          solutions are available to you in the solutions manual
                          for the even-numbered questions in the book.
