Office: A-234 Cook e-mail: john.sharp@uvm.edu

Office Hours: Mon-Fri 7:00-7:50 am, or by appointment Lecture: The lecture each day will primarily be used to cover new material. Included in this syllabus is a tentative schedule covering the timing of the lecture, text material, and the corresponding problems to be worked from the text. Attendance at lecture is not mandatory, but if you do come please stay through the lecture. There will be a short break approximately halfway through the lecture. Exams will be given on Friday mornings in at the start of the period. Test dates are given below: Fri, 19 JUN ; Ch: 4(sec .4-.7), 12, 13 Fri, 26 JUN ; Ch: 4(sec.8), 14, 15 Thurs, 2 JUL ; Ch: 16, 17 Thurs, 9 JUL ; Ch: 4(sec.9), 18, 19 Fri, 10 JUL; Final Exam (cumulative) Problem Session: Thurs 2:00 pm, Angell B112 Problems: Answers to the review questions and exercises can be found in the solutions manual. I will answer any questions about the problems and old exams during the scheduled review sessions. While it is strongly recommended that you do as many problems as possible, the problems are not collected and do not count towards your grade. I would like to emphasize that chemistry is mainly a problem solving course and the more problems you can do the better. B. SUGGESTED READING : Text: " Chemistry, A Molecular Approach " 1st ed , by Nivaldo Tro is sold at the UVM bookstore. The solutions manual that comes with the text has the complete solutions to all the assigned problems. The study guide while not required can be a help with


problem solving. Lab Manuals: "Chemistry 32, Experiments ", which is sold at the first floor stockroom, A-143 Cook, for $10.00 Lab Notebook: A notebook with carbon-less copies is required. Notes and Old Tests: The notes and tests that were given to my Chemistry 32 class the last 2 years can be purchased from the first floor stockroom for $5.00. While the questions will change the format will remain the same. C. Laboratory: Time: TAs: Attendance: Students must attend the lab section they are assigned to. Official documentation of sickness or family crisis is required if a lab is missed. Unexcused absences will result in a ZERO grade for that experiment. Prior to the attending a lab session it is mandatory to watch the video that accompanies that lab. The videos demonstrate the proper use of new equipment, and the safe handling of chemicals. The videos are found at www.uvm.edu/~wcleaver/32Videos.htm. Mon-Tues-Wed and/or Fri, 1:10-4:00 pm; Rm, A240 or 242 Cook

Lab Videos:

Breakage Card: A breakage card ( $40.00 ) must be purchased from the first floor stockroom, A-143 Cook, prior to your first lab. The $40.00 is refundable, and if you are careful and avoid breaking your equipment you should get all or most of it back. Remember don't leave home without it as you must have it with you to be admitted into lab. Safety Eyewear: OSHA approved eye wear must be worn by everyone once any experimentation has started in any area of the lab room. Students found not observing this rule will receive a ZERO for that experiment, warnings will not be given. Safety eye wear can be purchased at the UVM bookstore. CONTACT LENSES are a hazard and should not be worn in the laboratory. If contacts are the only type of corrective lenses then you must let you know TA know you are wearing them. Lab Attire: Shoes that cover the toes must be worn at all times. Short-shorts and cut off t-shirts are not allowed (the chest, stomach and legs down to the knees must be covered). When working with a Bunsen burner long hair must be tied back. Lab jackets and aprons are recommended, not required. Only shoes that cover the toes are permitted in the lab. Sandals and open toed

Foot Wear:

shoes are not permitted Lab Notebook: A notebook with carbon-less copies is required for recording lab data. All data is to be recorded in ink. D. COURSE GRADE : 1. Points needed to obtain a specific grade A A 900 880 B+ B 860 790 B C+ 770 750 C C 650 630 D+ D 610 560 D F 540 539

2. How to calculate your points a) Class = 800pts 4 hr Exams = 4 grades 1 Final = 2 grades 6 grades - 1 grade = 5 grades x 1.6 = class pts Will only count five grades. Therefore, if the final is your lowest grade it will only count once. If one of the hour exams is your lowest grade then one of the grades for the final will replace that low exam grade. The 1.6 factor is because each test was only worth 100 pts, and therefore the maximum number of points obtainable from the tests are 500. In order to raise this to 800 pts you must multiply the 500 x 1.6 = 800.

Example 1: Ex-1 85 85 Ex-2 45 75 Ex-3 78 78 Ex-4 77 77 Final x 2 75 75 75

Actual Scores Scores Counted

Total pts = 390 x 1.6 = 624 pts from class Example 2: Ex-1 67 67 Ex-2 78 78 Ex-3 76 76 Ex-4 69 69 Final x 2 62 62 62

Actual Scores Scores Counted

Total pts = 352 x 1.6 = 563 pts from class An option to taking the final: If you choose you may take your lowest exam score and count it as the score on the final. You must let me know before you take the final exam if you wish to exercise this option. Once you start taking the final exam it will be counted.

b) Laboratory = 200 pts Notebook / Prelab Lab reports Quizzes Technique 27 pts 92 pts 56 pts 25 pts 200 pts Obtained from lab TA, average grade is normally an 80% or 160 pts

3. Determination of grade. Add up your points from the class and lab and then use the chart at the beginning to determine your course grade.

Example 1:

624 class pts + 160 lab pts 784 total pts =


Example 2:

563 class pts + 160 lab pts 723 total pts = C


Official documentation of sickness or family crisis is required if exams are missed. Unexcused absences from exams will result in a ZERO grade on your record. Students with legitimate excuses will be permitted to take an exam early. Makeup exams will not be administered after the scheduled exam time.
