The course is designed to provide the student with the following tools:
1. An understanding and appreciation for the fundamental concepts of chemistry. The topics to be discussed are listed in course content below. The material is presented at a level suitable for those students who will be majoring in one of the sciences. 2. A logic-based, problem solving approach that can be consistently applied. We will emphasize chemical calculations. 3. An understanding of how these fundamental chemical concepts can be applied to everyday life and to current problems of relevance in the world. 4. An understanding of what professional chemists do.
5. Topics to be covered include intermolecular forces, properties of solutions, chemical kinetics, chemical equilibrium, acid-base equilibria, aqueous equilibria, chemical thermodynamics, electrochemistry and nuclear chemistry.
There will be three examinations that will be given during the usual lecture period. There will be a two-hour final exam given at the end of the semester. The exam schedule is as follows:
First Lecture Exam:
W September 25
Second Lecture Exam:

DETERMINATION OF THE FINAL GRADE:
Letter grades are not given for individual exams. A numerical average for the course is determined as follows:
40% (13.3% for each)
The final letter grade is assigned based on the total numerical average for the entire course. Initially, the A range will be defined as 90%(A-) to 100%(A); the B range 80%(B-) to 89%(B+) etc... NOTE: THERE ARE NO EXTRA CREDIT PROJECTS. ALSO, FAILED EXAMS MAY NOT BE RETAKEN IN ORDER TO RECEIVE A HIGHER SCORE.
The final exam is comprehensive. The final exam date and time is scheduled by the university. Any student who does not take the final exam will receive a zero for the final exam grade. If a student cannot take the final exam on the scheduled date and time, he or she must obtain permission from the instructor to take the final exam during the final exam makeup period.
Homework: Homework will be assigned regularly. The homework is intended to help you learn the material and to give you an idea of the types of questions that will appear on the quizzes and exams. All exams are closed book and no additional material may be consulted (other than that provided with the examination sheet).
Absence from lecture Exams and Quizzes:
No make up examinations except for documented medical reasons. Graded examinations other than the final will returned to each student. Although request for re-grading based on missed questions will be honored please note that exam books may have been photocopied before they were returned. When a student makes a request for re-grading the entire examination will be re-graded not only a particular question.
Students are advised to carefully read the Student Code of Conduct and Judiciaries, The Code states: “Academic dishonesty is defined as cheating of any kind,...
