Semester: Fall 2009
Textbook: Lab Manual: The organic chemistry lab procedures will be given to students.
Credit: 4 hours (3 hours lecture - 3 hours lab per week)
Prerequisite: Chemistry 1120
Materials: Students are required to bring soap, sponge, lab apron, goggles and a towel. Students should adhere to safety regulations in the laboratory. Students must be familiar with MSDS.
This course is designed to introduce the student to the field of organic chemistry in an effort to prepare the student to take additional chemistry courses as well as to prepare the student for professional schools.
The general goal of this course is to acquire basic knowledge of organic chemistry in bonding, organic nomenclature, hydrocarbons, alkenes, Sn1, Sn2, E1, and E2 reactions will be discussed as well as organic synthesis. In addition, alcohols and ethers will be discussed.
1. Students are expected to attend all lectures and laboratory periods on time. Tardiness is not permitted.
2. Three hour exams (100 points each) will be given during the lecture, and a 200 point comprehensive final exam will be given at the end of the semester. The final exam will be given on Thursday, December 17, at 12:20 -2:20 p.m. in W -104.
3. Laboratory reports are due at the scheduled time. Laboratory work and reports constitute 100 points.
4. Make-up exams will be given according to the policy of the college.
5. Students should be able to fulfill the educational course objectives given at the beginning of each unit.
6. Study all assigned materials, and complete homework.
7. Regrading 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 CoSCC catalog 2008-2009, “Classroom Behavior”, “Change of Registration” and “Withdrawal”. The last day to drop this class or to withdrawal from it without failing is November 11, 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.
11. Students are expected to read all of the Student Handbook, especially the academic dishonesty and misconduct.
12. Expect a pop quiz at the start of each lecture period over material covered during the previous lecture.
All excused absences have to be accompanied by a written statement from your physician. Incase of unexcused absences, the maximum grade that can be obtained on missed exam is 80 points and 60 points on all additional missed exams.
