                 Lecture Outline Fall 2004 (General Chemistry - CHEM 1110)

Objective     Chemistry 1110 is the first of two semesters of General Chemistry, a general
              education course designed primarily for those who intend to pursue a scientific,
              medical, or engineering course of study. No prior experience in chemistry is
              required, but a general knowledge of mathematics through algebra is essential.
              Through classroom lectures and assigned reading from the text, the student will
              be expected to develop the ability to interpret and reason with chemical
              concepts, laws, and theories. Mathematical relationships will be introduced and
              will be used to solve problems that are commonly encountered in scientific and
              engineering endeavors. Having completed general chemistry laboratory and
              lecture, a student should be able to:
              1) Conduct a chemical experiment, collect and analyze data, and interpret
                 results in a laboratory setting.
              2) Analyze, evaluate and test a chemical hypothesis.
              3) Learn and use basic scientific language and processes, and be able to
                 distinguish between scientific and non-scientific explanations.
              4) Identify unifying principles and repeatable patterns governing matter, the
                 values of natural diversity, and apply them to problems or issues of a
                 chemical nature.
              5) Analyze and discuss the impact of chemical and physical discoveries on
                 human thought and behavior.

Grading      Your course grade will be computed based on:
               – OWL Homework             15 %
               – Laboratory Average 25 %
               – Hour Exams               40 %
               – Final Exam               20 %
             Your letter grade will be determined according to the following scale:
                           A          90-100 %
                           B          80-89 %
                           C          70-79 %
                           D          60-69 %
                           F           < 60 %

Homework     Every student will have purchased an access code to the OWL Web Site
             (Online Web-based Learning). This is where your online homework is located.
             You will have homework to do that becomes available at a specified time for
             each chapter we cover.
Hour Exams   You will have five one-hour exams that will start at 7:30 am. The lowest
             scored one will be dropped, each of the remaining four will cont for 10% of
             your grade. There is NO MAKEUP for the hour exams.
             *** There may be some assignments or class pop-quizzes to be included as
             extra credit in the hour exam grade.
Final Exam   The final will be given Friday, July 1, 2005 from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. There is NO
             MAKEUP for the final exam.
Laboratory   Every student enrolled in CHEM1110 lecture is required to concurrently be
             enrolled in the laboratory. The only exception are those students repeating the
             course who got an 85% or better on the previous lab. A separate website in
             WebCT is dedicated to the laboratory portion of the course and is maintained
             and administrated by our laboratory coordinator, Dr. Furtsch. At that location
             the official and most recently-revised lab schedule is maintained. Every student
             will be required to read the experiment and to take and record a Pretest over the
             current week's experiment before carrying out the experiment and before going
             to lab lecture. TA's will check to see that each student does this before
             admitting you to the lab. Pretests for each lab will be available few days before
             an experiment is to be done and must be completed by Noon of that day of lab.
             DO NOT PUT THIS OFF UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE! Most laboratory
             exercises will be graded, and quizzes will be given in the laboratory period
             periodically over experiments completed in previous days. You MUST HAVE
             A WRITTEN EXCUSE TO MAKE UP A MISSED LAB OR QUIZ. The grade
             MUST be made up within one day under the supervision of your laboratory
             instructor. The laboratory instructor has the right to refuse a makeup if the
             makeup request is unduly late.

Attendance   Each student is expected to attend all classes and laboratories at the scheduled
             time. Information or points missed cannot be reclaimed.

Office Hours I will be available after class (9:30 am to noon). If that time is bad for you,
             other times are negotiable, and appointments can be scheduled by contacting
             me directly.

Academic        Plagiarism, cheating, and other forms of academic dishonesty are prohibited,
Dishonesty      and students involved in academic misconduct, either directly or indirectly as a
                participant or abettor, are immediately responsible to the instructor of the class,
                who has the authority to assign an “F” or a zero for the exercise or examination,
                or to assign an “F” for the course. In addition, the instructor may temporarily
                exclude a student involved in academic misconduct, but should provide for the
                student who may make a successful appeal. [The instructor has the primary
                responsibility for control over classroom behavior and maintenance of
                academic integrity, can order the temporary removal or exclusion from the
                classroom of any student engaged in disruptive conduct or conduct violative of
                the general rules and regulations of the institution. Extended or permanent
                exclusion from the classroom or further disciplinary action can be effected only
                through appropriate procedures of the institution.] (Student Handbook)

Lab Safety      Goggles must be worn in the laboratory. Ordinary glasses, even those with
                special glass, do not fulfill the requirements of the Tennessee Safety Law.
                Students are responsible for having goggles for every laboratory. Goggles may
                be purchased at the University Bookstore. GOGGLES WILL NOT BE
                LOANED--ANY STUDENT WITHOUT GOGGLES WILL NOT BE
                ALLOWED TO WORK IN THE LABORATORY, AND WILL RECEIVE A
                ZERO FOR THAT EXPERIMENT. If you wear short pants, and apron must be
                worn for protection from corrosive materials. The standard laboratory
                assignments are the only experiments permitted.

Repeating the If you are repeating Chemistry 1110, you may be able to use the laboratory
Course        grade from your previous attempt under the following conditions: 1) you can
              find your former lab or lecture instructor and obtain the grade in the previous
              attempt; 2) you had at least an 85% in that attempt; 3) you personally notify
              your current lecture instructor of your previous lab grade. If for any reason the
              previous grade cannot be obtained, you must repeat the laboratory portion of
              the course. In order to use an old lab score, you must notify your current lecture
              instructor the first week of class. You may not decide to use an old lab score
              after that date.
