GENERAL INFORMATION This course is a continuation of CHEM 2323. You are expected to be familiar with the concepts covered in chapters 1-10 of the assigned book before class begins. These chapters will not be covered again and you are responsible for their content. This course will cover reaction mechanisms in more detail and introduce new functional groups. In addition, a number of spectroscopic tools will be introduced in this course. To learn organic chemistry requires dedication on part of the student. This course traditionally does not reward the student who chooses to cram before tests. You should attempt to keep up with the material on a daily basis. Read the chapters before they are covered in class. Do the suggested problems as we cover the chapter. Seek help if needed. Also remember this is not a memorization course although some memorization cannot be avoided. Understanding why the reaction occurs allows you to see the bigger picture. Finally, remember that reactions and the properties of organic molecules are governed by electrons. What happens to these electrons control the chemistry. 4 Tests will be given during class time according to the syllabus. No make-up tests will be given. One test score may be dropped, but the final exam cannot be dropped. In addition, there will be 4 quizzes and you are allowed to drop one quiz score too. If mistake in grading is found, you can request re-grading, but your whole test will be reviewed. Your scores, lecture notes, and answer keys of quizzes and tests will be posted on WebCT, thus you must have an active NetID and password for access. Any students who cannot attend class or exam due to their religious holiday must contact me at least 7 days prior to the event in order to prevent any disadvantages. Failure to do it will be counted as absence and no excuse will be taken. TEXTBOOK L. G.
