Section Description

Key topics discussed in this class include matter, stoichiometry or reactions, gas laws, thermochemistry, quantum theory, atomic structure, electronic configurations, bonding and intermolecular forces.

Section Expectation

The class is split into two parts, a lecture portion and a lab portion. The lecture section holds approximately 200 students and utilizes the chalk-board, multimedia, models, and demonstrations for understanding of key conceptual and mathematical processes. Students will be evaluated on conceptual and mathematical processes via four mid-semester exams and one final exam. The lab section holds approximately 22 students and allows the student to physically conduct experiments within the key topics presented in lecture. Students will be evalutated with prelab quizzes, lab reports, and post-lab questions.

Evaluation

The lecture section of the course is evaluated with four mid-semester exams and one cumulative final exam. Each counts for 100 unweighted points, for a total of 500 points. These exam points are weighted by 1.6 for a total of 800 points from lecture-based exams (80% of grade). The student is allowed to replace their lowest mid-semester exam with their cumulative final exam grade only if their final exam grade is higher than their lowest mid-semester exam grade. The lab section of the course is evaluated with attendance, pre-lab report, pre-lab, and full lab report for a total of 200 points (20% of grade). The grade in the class is the sum of both the lecture exam and lab points divided by 1000. Subsequent multiplication by 100 yields your percentage and resultant grade. Please refer to the syllabus for specific percentage ranges and their respective letter grade.
