CHEM 1110 GENERAL CHEMISTRY FOR SCIENTISTS I FALL 2016 Instructor: Dr. W. Zhan Office: Chemistry Building Room 262 Email: Lecture: CHEM 151, MWF 11:00-11:50 AM Office Hours: T/W 1:30-3:00 PM ABOUT THIS COURSE CHEM 1110 is an entry-level chemistry course that introduces students many essential fundamental concepts, facts and quantification methods in modern chemistry. Its main topics include chemical structures, bonding and reactions, states of matter and physical properties of chemical systems and chemical measurements. With reasonable amount of effort, students can obtain a very useful knowledge base about modern chemistry, through which one will then understand many roles of chemistry in our daily lives and gain sufficient background for tackling more specialized chemistry - related topics. REQUIRED MATERIALS Textbook: Chemical Principles (7thEdition) by Zumdahl/DeCoste (Brooks/Cole). This class covers Chapters 1-5, 9, 12-14 and 16. ALEKS: ALEKS - Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces ( will be required for this class. This online learning system will replace the OWL homework system referred to in the textbook. Students need to first log on to and get registered. Our term is 15 weeks long so you can choose that payment option. Or if you will take CHEM 1120 in the following semester, the year-long option will save you money . After registering, enter the Course Code (WMWDX-CDUJ9) to locate our class. Try your best on your first assessment and that will set the ground for what you will be doing in the next few weeks. Calculator: This cours e contains a fair number of calculation related maneuvers. Students should limit their calculators to non-programmable models. TI-30 is a recommended model and available at University Bookstore if you have not got one yet. GRADING Quizzes/Attendance: 10% Grading Scale: 90−100% A ALEKS (Homework): 15% 80−89% B; 70−79% C Hour Exams (3 of them): 3 x 15 = 45% 60−69% D; < 60% F Comprehensive Final Exam: 30% Exam I (Ch. 1-4) Friday, September 16; Exam II (Ch. 5,9,12) Wednesday, October 19 Exam I (Ch. 12-14,16) Friday, November 18; Final Exam Wednesday, December 7 Additional notes: 1) Quizzes are embedded in the lectures and are normally multi-choice questions or short answers done on a piece of paper. 2) The three hour exams will take three classes. These dates are set and you should mark them out on your calendar. 3) Students that have demonstrated exceptional understanding and performance in this class, that is, scored 95 or higher on ALL THREE hourly exams, will not be required to take the Final. LECTURES Lectures are delivered mostly by handwriting (via electronic document projector) with occasional MS PowerPoint slides. Students are required to take notes of the lectures. These will become handy when you prepare for exams. ATTENDANCE Class attendance by all students is required since regular attendance is considered to have a direct and positive influence upon the student's performance in this course. This requirement is reflected by the fact that 5% of your grades go to class attendance. In the event that you are absent from a lecture, it is your responsibility to obtain missed information, handouts, and announcements. Failing students who miss more than 6 classes may be assigned a grade of FA. E-MAIL Students are encouraged to communicate with the instructor via email ( ). To ensure a fast response, i nclude in the email subject line: CHEM 1 110. If this is regarding a particular exam, put CHEM 1110 Exam X, etc. STUDENT DICIPLINE Students are expected to meet the st andards of the Student Academic Honesty Code , information regarding which can be found here ( ) and here ( ). Typically, cheating results in a failing grade in the class and also gen erally in suspension or expulsion from Auburn University. STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES Students who need special accommodations should make an appointment with Dr. Zhan at the beginning of the semester so we can discuss your situation confidentially. Pleas e bring your memo from the Program for Students with Disabilities at the beginning of the semester. If you do not have a memo from the PSD office that tells me about your accommodations, please make an appointment to see them in 1232 Haley Center (844-2096). GENERAL ADVICE ON SUCCE EDING THE CLASS Success in this class, as true for many other science courses taught at Auburn, requires determination and hard work. Set your goal high and match it with consistent efforts. The lectures provide you the necessary framework of learning, by including many illustrative examples to help you understand the concepts/principles. However, to digest the lectured materials and t urn them into your own knowledge, you need to put in the matching effort. Specifically, students should study on average 2 extra hours for each lecture. You pay big bucks on the textbook so don’t leave any pages unturned . You are also encouraged to tackle those problems at the end of each chapter along with the ones on ALEKS. Learning is an accumulative process and this class is no exceptionIn addition, it is essential to follow closely your progress in the class. Nobody welcomes unpleasant surprises and it is your responsibility to stay on top of everything in this class. HOMEWORK (ALEKS and more) There will be 13 homework assignments. The average score on your assignments will count for 10% of your final grade; the other 5% will be assigned from the percentage of topics (the ALEKS Pie) that you have completed by noon, the day before the final exam . Therefore, if you complete an ALEKS topic after the due date, it will count towards the secon d 5% but not the first 10%! You have an unlimited number of attempts in ALEKS so keep working until you have a perfect score! Remember that homework is your best source of “easy points” that can bring your overall grade up. Do not put it off until the very 2 last moment. The ALEKS assignments will often cover topics that we are about to discuss in class. This is for your own good: it encourages you to read the textbook ahead of time and come to the class prepared. It is essential that you try to do the homewo rk on your own. The bottom line is: If you can work out the problems without referring to your text or notes or help from a tutor, then you are likely ready to take the exam. Previous results have shown countless times that students who work through and understand the problems will perform well on the exams and in the class overall. Make sure for each homework set you can solve it all by yourself at the end. Remember this: In a real test, it’s all you alone. Practice also brings you fluency and speed, both needed in a real test. EXTRA HELP In case you have difficulties understanding the covered materials or working out the homework problems, there’re several ways to find extra help. First, take advantage of the office hours to have a one - on-one discussion with the instructor. If the scheduled office hours conflict your schedule, you’re recommended to make an appointment on other times. Another proven way of improving your performance is to participate and work together in help sessions held by the Supplemental Instruction leader throughout the semester. EXAMS GENERAL: There’re three hour exams and a comprehensive final. Exams normally include three types of problems: multiple choices, short responses and calculation-based work-out questions. All exams are closed book – bring only pens, the calculator and your AU ID to the exam. The use of ALL electronic devices is prohibited during an exam. MISSING EXAMS: If you miss one of the three hour exams due to a legitimate reason, such as sickness or death of an immediate family member, you must provide the instructor with a satisfactory excuse in writing with supporting evidence within one week after the absence. This way you explain to the instructor by what University policy your absence should be granted the right to make-up exams. In case the original document needs to be presented to multiple parties, a xeroxed copy would suffice. MAKE-UP EXAMS: Missed exams due to University -sanctioned absences must be made up by taking a make-up exam. Due to the difficulty of accommodating multi ple students with often-conflicting schedules, make-up exams will be only given once in the class time one week after the original exams. There is no make-up exam for the Final. Missing make-up exams or not having a valid excuse will result in 0 points for the respective test. Students missing the final exam without a University -approved excuse will receive a grade of FA for the semester. REASONS TO AVOID MAKE-UP EXAMS: 1) As stated above, you miss one class in order to take it; 2) Make-up exams can be very different and therefore at times appear more difficult than the original ones. RETURNED EXAMS: You are expected to pick up your exam (in class) once it has been graded. Failure to pick-up your graded exam on the day they are returned will result in a grade penalty. The first offense will be noted in my grade book and a classroom warning will be given. The second exam not picked up the day it is returned will result in a letter grade reduction to your final grade. The third exam not picked will result in two letter grade reductions to your final grade, etc. REGRADING: Requests of regrading are handled using the regrading form that is available on Canvas. Answers given by pencils will be graded but cannot be re-graded. Modifying your original answers and then seeking for regrading is a serious violation of the Academic Honesty Code (link above) and may result in students being dismissed from this class. To ensure orderly operation and high efficiency in this class, all requests for regrading are only accepted once at the end of the next class after an exam is returned. 3
