Class Times MWF 900 AM to 950 AM T 500 PM to 620 PM as directed tests review sessions makeup lectures All class discussions and tests will be held in Shelby 1004 unless specified otherwise Of ce Hours Monday 130230 PM and Friday 400500 PM or by appointment Shelby 2046 Prereguisites Successful completion of CH 231Elementary Organic Chemistry I Objectives This course is designed to expand the coverage of introductory organic chemistry Fundamental functional group reactivity reaction mechanisms and synthetic reactions useful for the preparation of organic products will be emphasized Expectations Student Learning Outcomes After successfully completing CH 232 students will be able to I predict the properties and reactivity of functional groups including conjugated rrsystem s aromatic compounds alcohols carbonyl compounds amines and common heterocycles 2 write viable electronpushing mechanisms for several reaction classes including electrophilic aromatic substitution carbonyl addition nucleophilic acyl substitution enolate alkylation and aldoltype reactions 3 plan multistep syntheses of organic compounds including structurally simple commercial pharmaceuticals 4 predict the major product obtained by treating a functionalized organic molecule with one or more common reagents Reguired Items I John McMurry Organic Chemistry 7th ed39 BrooksColeThomson Belmont

register for this course on the OWLCengage website If you have not purchased an OWL access code you must acquire a registration code from Cengage httpowlcengagecompartnersbrookscoleepin

will be deleted with loss of credit for any completed OWL exercises Optional Materials I Susan McMun39y Study Guide and Student Solutions Manual for Organic Chemistry 7th ed39 BrooksColeThomson

the student s cumulative point total Cumulative scores within the ranges below will be guaranteed the indicated grade The instructor reserves the right to expand these ranges apply a curve at the end of the semester based upon class performance and exam difficulty A 86100 B 7085 C 5569 D 4054 F 0039 All exams and bonus quizzes will be graded by the instructor and organic graduate teaching assistants Partial credit may be assigned for partially correct exam answers at the instructor s discretion Partial credit will not be assigned for OWL homework exercises or quizzes OWL Assignments You will be assigned two types of short problem sets using the OWL online homework system Homework Pool problems will be due by 9 am the day we are scheduled to discuss the associated material in class Hence you will familiarize yourself with the course material before coming to class End of Chapter Questions which comprise the bulk of your OWL grade generally will be due by 9 am the Tuesday after we have completed the discussion of the corresponding chapter OWL assignment due dates are listed in the OWL system when you login and on the course home page Both will be updated regularly Due date policies are subject to change at the instructor s discretion Any changes will be announced at the beginning of the first class period after the change was instituted Test Regrade Policy I Due to the large number of test answers that are graded during the semester nearly 7000 answers in a class this size some minor grading errors will occur You may submit your graded test for a full regrade by the instructor if you feel that a problem was evaluated incorrectly Please bear in mind that this can result in a lower overall test score once the entire tested has been regraded I Simple summation errors will be corrected without a full test regrade Bonus Point Opportunities I Bonus quizzes or inclass assignments may be given during recitation sessions These exercises will reward those who routinely attend recitation and arrive prepared No makeup bonus opportunities will be given for any reason Attendance Policy Class roll will not be taken However you must attend class to do well in the course Class discussions are not derived completely from the content provided in the McMurry textbook Moreover your course participation grade is derived from quizzes learning assessments and discussions offered only during class Missed Test Policy There will be no makeup semester tests except for individuals providing evidence for participation in a University of Alabama sanctioned event during the scheduled exam time fraternitysorority events not included In such instances arrangements mustbe made to take the test prior to the scheduled test date If a semester test is missed for any other reason eg personal or medical issues the student s percentage score earned on the Final Exam will replace the single missed semester test score No 0 points will be awarded for any tests missed other than a single test Keys to Success Read the text The text will generally reinforce concepts introduced in class and potentially offer expanded coverage or biological applications of the topics Complete the assigned preclass OWL exercises This will require that you be familiar with lecture topics before coming to class Familiarizing yourself with the fundamental topics will allow you to focus on the details or specific applications discussed during class Be sure to read and follow the exercise directions carefully Complete the OWL End of Chapter Questions The exercises will reinforce the material for which you are responsible and highlight areas requiring further study Work the recommended problem sets The recommended problems force you to review and understand the material Despite the effort involved this is the best way to learn organic chemistry Plus 3050 of exam questions will come directly from these problems Attempt the problems before seeking the answers in the Solutions Manual It will not help to view solutions without first attempting to solve the problems on your own Attend recitation sessions Useful hints or tips will be given and more complicated examples of problems will be worked than those shown in class Chapter reviews and bonus point opportunities may also be given here Ask questions and attend of ce hours If you don t want to ask during class wait until afterward I enjoy answering questions and it allows me to gauge how well the material was taught and understood Recopy the class notes and0r make mechanism and reaction cards This can be a very effective way to review Just be sure you understand what you are copying and how it applies to the subject matter If you don t understand visit me during office hours What you gain from CH 232 depends upon your commitment to attend class and recitation routinely study and understand the assigned exercises My role is to facilitate encourage and guide DISABILITY AC COMlVIODATION STATEMENT
