                                    Handouts in Class

 

Office Hours:             M,W,F:    9:00-9:50 AM

                                    and by appointment

 

I will try and hold open office hours and you are welcome to drop by anytime.  My office is around the corner from the SCLB 263 departmental computing lab, and if I am busy you can let me know you need help and then go study in the computing lab. I'll drop by as soon as I am free.

 

Chemistry Computer Laboratory:  SCLB 263 This is an open computer lab where you can access any of the WEB based assignments and tutorials. 

 

Tutoring:        To be announced

 

Class Bulletin Board:  Outside SCLB 277 keys to exams and quizzes will be posted.

 

Attendance:   Attendance is required.  There will be announced and unannounced quizzes.  Absence during a quiz equates to a zero score.  If you miss three labs periods, you get an F for this course (see lab syllabus).

 

Lecture:          Read the text assignments before the class period.  The lecture will be used to cover expected competencies with respect to the subject material and should provide an efficient study guide.  Coming to lecture is a necessary, but not sufficient with respect to getting a passing grade.  You must study outside of lecture.

There will be NO MAKEUP EXAMS or QUIZZES.  If your final exam score (on a 100% basis) is higher than your lowest exam its grade will be substituted for that grade.   In the event that you miss an exam, that exam will be considered your lowest exam score and your final will be substituted for that grade.  All quizzes and exams will be closed book and closed notes.  You will not be allowed to use programmable calculators and students may not share calculators during quizzes or exams.  Cell Phones must be turned off and out-of-sight during exams. Cheating is strictly forbidden. 

 

The last day to withdraw from this course is April 15.
