AIMS & OBJECTIVES
This course is designed as a one-semester course for freshman engineering students. It offers the opportunity to the student to develop:
an adequate background in fundamentals of descriptive, applied and theoretical chemistry.
systematic problem solving skills through numerous conceptual and numerical problems requiring critical and analytical thinkingskills in addition to a good grasp of chemical concepts.
scientific literacy and awareness to become an informed citizen
basic laboratory skills.
Recognise the constituents and properties of matter in general, and of atoms, molecules and ions in particular
Understand the role of energy in chemistry
Understand chemical bonds and intermolecular interactions
Identify and name the substances
Understand periodicity and periodic table
Describe chemical mixtures
Interpret system of units used in physical sciences
Use symbols and units correctly; and formulate appropriate mathematical and chemical equations for solving problems
Apply the theoretical concepts and methods of chemistry covered in this course to solve problems
Use dimensional analysis method for solving numerical problems
Use efficiently and effectively a variety of printed and electronic text, material (including the textbook) relevant to the course
Handle chemicals properly, performing experiments as a team safely, and writing lab reports
Understand the concentration or the amount of active matter in an aqueous solution
Use good scientific English for written and oral communication
Letter grades are determined by a “curve system”. No letter
-grade templates apply.
Conditions that might lead to NG grade.i)
Not attending the class more than 80% of total lecture hours.ii)
Not attending any two exams, including make-up.
EXAMS (See Grading Criteria)
There will be two quizzes, one midterm exam and one final exam. Exam results are announced on the Chemistry Department Notice Board.2.
All students should have a scientific calculator for use in exams.3.
are not allowed to be used in the exams as a calculator.
Students can see their papers in the first 10 days following the announcement of results, but not later than that.MAKE-UP EXAM
There is only one make-up exam that is held in the final week of the semester (its date, place and time will be announced later). This oneexam is for all students who have missed a quiz or the midterm.
Make-up exams in CHEM 101 are much harder than the regular exams.
Students, who miss the final exam or are eligible, can take the
, which will be scheduled during the week of 22-29 June 2013.
Student’s marked exam papers are available for inspection from course instructors upon
request. To conform to regulations these requestsshould be made within 10 days of announcement of marks. Objections to any grade must be made to the instructors.
The students are expected to attend the lectures (minimum %20 absence). Failure to fulfill this criterion may result with
an “NG” grade. (See the Grading Criteria). Attendance is
taken done regularly.
Labs: Laboratory work is compulsory.
Missing three or more experiments will result in failure in CHEM 101.
