Instruction Mr Mark Fuller will hold three discussion sections each week times TBA Discussion Section Wednesday 600 PM 7 800 PM Science 203 Course ContentDescription Organic chemistry is the study of carbonbased chemicals All living creatures on Earth and many inanimate objects around you that you use every day are made of organic compounds Most importantly organic compounds form the structural basis of molecules essential for life nucleic acids DNARNA peptides proteins lipids and polysaccharides cellulose glycogen chitin pectin In addition almost all pharmaceuticals used to treat diseases and ailments in humans animals and plants are made by organic chemists The chemistry 361362363 sequence serves as an introduction to organic chemistry for students planning careers in the sciences and provides a foundation for biochemistry and other upper division electives offered in the chemistry and biology department Course Objectives Interpret the symbolism and understand the language organic chemists use to communicate including the IUPAC nomenclature system Apply principles learned in general chemistry to understand atomic structure molecular geometry structural topology and how these characteristics affect how organic molecules react Recognize the relationship between the structure and physical properties of organic molecules Identify common organic lnctional groups Predict and interpret infrared NMR and mass spectra and use these spectroscopy tools to assign chemical connectivity and bonding in organic molecules Visualize and draw molecules and organic chemical reactions in three dimensions Practice problem solving and develop critical thinking and reasoning skills Ability to propose plausible arrowpushing mechanisms describing electron ow from the reactants to the products of organic chemical reactions that involve reasonable reactive and stable intermediates Apply basic synthesis concepts to describe ways that small organic molecules can be made Text and

intercollegiate athletics and must miss an exam to attend a competition talk to me and we can work something out Exam Regrade Protocol Do not mark or alter the exam in any way 1 Recounting requests for all adding errors for any amount of points are accepted 2 Regrade requests that are not an adding error must be for 2 or more points serious error 3 I will not accept requests for more partial credit I ve already graded consistently 4 Regrade requests are due within one week of when your exam is returned 5 Please give your exam to Prof Chamberland a er lecture or during office hours with a note clearly explaining which problem you want regraded and why Do not make any notes or marks on your exam 6 All regrade requests will result in a reevaluation of the entire exam Dates W 923 F 925 M

reinforce material learned preViously and strengthen your content understanding Lecture will be easier to understand and follow if you have read the book beforehand Unless I specifically say otherwise you are responsible for ALL the material in the chapterssections covered even if I do not mention it in class or include it in my course notes CHEM 361 Syllabus Fall 2009 page 4 of4 2 Work problems You will learn a lot of new reactions mechanisms and elementary synthetic organic chemistry If you want to learn essential concepts in the course and do well on my problembased exams then the endofchapter exercises in the book will provide excellent practice You must practice to learn the material 3 Time commitment Learning organic chemistry is like learning a foreign language Because you only have one year to gain pro ciency however immersion is key Mastery of course content may require more time than the combined effort you devote to your other classes You should spend at least 46 hours reading doing problems discussing and rehearsing the material for each hour of lecture Study every day including weekends Recopying your lecture notes may help you organize and remember the lecture material better Use color in your notes Make ash cards Write a chart of similar reactions Practice drawing mechanisms and doing synthesis problems Take notes as you read the book Consult other organic texts and online resources 4 Attend every lecture Self explanatory Compare lecture notes with a friend Maybe she caught something you missed or vice versa 5 Come to of ce hours and ask questions Real problems in chemistry as in life will require teamwork and communication skills Thus group problem solving represents an essential component of exam preparation Get a good study group together early and meet o en Visit me with questions If I do not know you are struggling I cannot help you That said you must also learn the material and become proficient at solving problems on your own I am available willing and able to help you but I can only do so if you ask for help 6 If you have questions or feel behind Attend of ce hours make an appointment to see me and attend weekly discussion sections Discussion sections provide more time to go over homework problems clarify lecture material go over quizzes and exams and to ask questions Do not fall behind it may be impossible to catch up Notes on Civility Please turn off of not silentvibrate all cell phones Blackberries iPhones iPods etc before coming to class Receipt of calls during class is disruptive to the instructor and to the students When you email me with a question or a comment please include a salutation and signature in your message e g Dear Dr Chamberland yadda yadda yadda Sincerely Chris You may not
