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.
LEARNING OUTCOMES
-
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
Grading Criteria
Letter grades are determined by a “curve system”. No letter 
-grade templates apply.
NGnil grade
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)
1.
 
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.
 
Mobile phones
are not allowed to be used in the exams as a calculator.
4.
 
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.
 
RESIT EXAM
 Students, who miss the final exam or are eligible, can take the
RESIT exam
, which will be scheduled during the week of 22-29 June 2013.
OBJECTIONS
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.
ATTENDANCE
-
Lectures:
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.
 
METHOD OF ASSESSMENT
Quiz I 10%Midterm 25%Quiz II 10%Laboratory work 10% (Quizzes: 20%, Reports: 50% and Lab Final Exam 30%)Final 40%Attendance to lectures 5%
-
Make-up exams:
All students will be allowed to make-up a maximum of one missed exam or quiz right after the final exams. Nomedical report is required.
-
Passing
old lab marks (4/10 or higher)
of repeating students are transferrable; therefo
re they don’t have to repeat the lab work.
Quizzes about the experiments to be performed are given before each lab session. Reports are submitted after the experiment.

ACADEMIC HONESTY - PLAGIARISM
Cheating is copying from others or providing information, written or oral, to others. Plagiarism is copying without acknowledgement from
other people’s work.
According to university by laws cheating and plagiarism are serious offences punishable by disciplinary committeeranging from simple failure from the exam or project, to more serious action (letter of official warning, suspension from the university for upto one semester). Disciplinary action is written in student records and may appear in student transcripts.
IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL STUDENTS REPEATING THE COURSE FOR A BETTER GRADE; WHATEVERGRADE YOU RECEIVE AT THE END OF THIS SEMSTER WILL REPLACE YOUR PREVIOUS GRADE.
