Introduction to General Organic and Biological Chemistry 93911 Edition by Karen Timberlake Additional Materials Scienti c Calculator required Study Guide strongly suggested Catalog Course Description A study of fundamental chemical concepts with emphasis on applications to agriculture biology nursing and the technologies Designed for students who have not had a thorough high school course in chemistry 3 hours lecture 3 Credit Hours Prerequisites None Course Outcomes The course syllabus is built around a common core The subject content for the core is shown as learning outcomes that are available on eLeam and on the Chemistry Home Page at wwwwsedu Common Core Measurements Atoms and Elements Compounds and Their Bonds Chemical Reactions and Quantities Energy and States of Matter Gases Solutions Acids and Bases FQWWUOW General Education Course Designation Natural Science 3 semester hours Methods of Instruction Lectures and discussion You are expected to attend class pay attention and participate actively in discussions by answering questions asking questions and making comments You will get more out of the lecture if you have read the material in the textbook ahead of time Always bring your book with you to lecture Learning Outcomes for students can be found in the Walters State eLeam page for this course and the chemistry section of the Natural Science homepage Outlines and PowerPoint presentations used in lecture may be available for your review on the Walters State eLeam page for this course Reading The textbook provides a good general introduction to the eld of basic chemistry The book covers most of the topics that are approached in the class Thus it will serve to augment lecture and to provide material for discussion In addition readings in the book will support the material that you will be studying in labs The book includes many things which will help you understand the material and study for the tests including a list of key concepts chapter summaries review questions quizzes and a list of key terms Expectations Satisfactory performance in college courses generally asks for two hours of study outside of class for each hour in class This estimate applies to an quotaveragequot student expecting an quotadequatequot C grade Students aiming higher or those with academic problems should expect to spend more effort than the minimum Should you procrastinate not read ahead of time or expect to cram everything on last days before exams this course may not be for you The Student can expect from the teacher 1 Email response within 24 hours during the normal workweek Holidays and vacations excluded Email during the weekend will be answered on Monday Exams to be graded and returned in a timely manner Enthusiasm for the subject and encouragement to help you when you need it A fair grading system with feedback Learning that ties concepts into the real world around us Respect for you as a learner 895959 Exams and Grading Chemistry exams will emphasize factual knowledge and assess the achievement of the Learning Outcomes Short answer essay questions diagrams and multiplechoice questions may be used Exams focus on what happens in

report when students are not attending class Students are required to supply a 2 pencil for each lecture exam The wearing of hats and caps in class is not allowed Students will be asked to remove their hats and caps STAY AWAKE IN CLASS Your mere presence in class is not suf cientiyou must be able to actively process the information presented Sleeping in class is disruptive in two ways the student who is snoozing is not interested and not participating in the classroom discussion secondly sleeping in class is considered to be disrespectful to the teacher and other students The 3 penalty for sleeping in class may range from the student being requested to leave the class with a following conference with the instructor to noti cation of the VicePresident of Academic Affairs in the cases of habitual sleepers If you have a medical condition that prevents you from staying awake in class please discuss this with the instructor WSCC Catalog Noti cation Statement All students attending
