CLASS TIME: 10:30 – 3:20 lecture and Lab M-Th.
SEMESTER: Summer 2009
TEXTBOOK: General Chemistry, 8th Edition, Ebbing and Gammon; Published by Houghton Mifflin Co., 2005.

CREDIT: 4 hours
PREREQUISITE: Successful completion of General Chemistry 1110
MATERIALS: Students are required to bring soap or detergent, sponge, lab apron, towel and goggles.
This course is designed to introduce the student to the field of chemistry in an effort to widen the educational background as well as to prepare the student to take additional chemistry courses.
The laboratory experiments are not only used to expose the student to various experimental procedures, but also to reinforce theoretical applications and to introduce the student to qualitative analysis of cations.
Upon the successful completion of this course, students will have demonstrated varying levels of knowledge as indicated by a letter grade in the following:
2. Chemical Kinetics
3. Chemical Equilibrium
4. Ionic Equilibrium
5. Solubility Product
7. Redox and Electrochemistry
8. Nuclear Chemistry
9. Introduction to Organic Chemistry
10. Study of certain groups in the periodic table
Course Requirements and Policies:
1. Students are expected to attend all lectures and laboratory periods on time. Tardiness is not permitted. In summer one day is equal to more than 4 days in regular year. One day of unexcused absence will result in the lowering of the grade by one letter, more than one unexcused absence may result in dropping the course. You must bring a note from your physician if your absence is due sickness.
2. Two one-hour exam (100 points each) will be given during the semester. Laboratory reports are due on schedule. The laboratory reports and work constitute a maximum of 15% of the final grade. A 150 point comprehensive final exam will be given at the end of the semester. If your grade improves with each successive hour exam, the grade of the first hour exam may be completely disregarded provided all lab periods and lectures were attended.
3. Make-up exams will be given according to the policy of the college.
4. Students should be able to fulfill the educational course objectives given at the beginning of each unit.
5. Read the text, other assigned materials, and complete homework.
A = 100 - 90 B = 80 - 89 C = 70 - 79 D = 60 - 69 F = Below 60
A = 100 - 90
B = 80 - 89
C = 70 - 79
D = 60 - 69
F = Below 60
7. Regarding for exams will be announced when the exams are returned. Any grade errors should be brought to my attention and adjustments will be made as needed.
8. Students are expected to read the current CSCC Catalog, “Classroom Behavior” and “Change of Registration and Withdrawal”, and “Class Attendance Policy”. The last day to drop this class or to withdraw from it without failing is July 22, 2009.
9. Students can seek help during lecture, laboratory periods, during posted office hours, or by appointments.
10. Plagiarism and/or cheating will NOT be tolerated. Any student caught cheating may be given an “F” for the course (CoSCC Catalog).
11. The use of TI-85 calculators is strictly prohibited.
12. All phones and pagers must be turned off in lecture and lab. If you expect an emergency, let me know.
In the event of an emergency, students are to follow the directions of the instructor. All students should note the “Emergency Procedures Guide” posted in each classroom.

Grades are not mailed to students. You must access grades through Web for Students (Columbiastate.edu) five (5) working days after grades are required in Admissions. Students needing official copies of grades must request it in writing from the Office of Admissions and Records. Call the transcript information line at 931/540-2550 for detailed instructions. Students may print a copy of their grades from Web for Students.
In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, students are encouraged to register with the office of Counseling/Disability Services for possible assistance with accommodations. It is the student’s responsibility to voluntarily and confidentially provide appropriate documentation regarding the nature and extent of a disability. Students requesting special accommodations are (strongly) encouraged to contact the office of Counseling/Disability Services at the beginning of the semester.
