1 Fall 2005 Introductory Chemistry Lectures: M W F 12:30-1:20 p.m. OD 104 Professor: Dr. David A. Tramontozzi Office Hours: Monday and Friday 9:00-11:30 a.m. Office: Essex Hall, TBA Contact: or ext. TBA Textbook: General Chemistry, Principles and Modern Applications R.H. Petrucci, W.S. Harwood and F.G. Herring, 8 th edition.

2 Course Outline This course will cover some of the basic concepts of chemistry including: atoms, molecules and ions solution stoichiometry, introductory thermochemistry and eletronic structure of atoms basic chemical bonding and molecular geometry periodic properties of the elements and the properties of gases, liquids and solids. The lecture portion of the course will be based on topics covered in CHAPTERS The full content of the course can only be realized by REGULAR ATTENDANCE in class and PERFORMING PROBLEMS from the textbook. The course webpage has OLD notes and should be used as a GENERAL GUIDELINE only. IT SHOULD NOT BE USED AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO REGULAR ATTENDANCE AND STUDYING.

Dec. 19, 2005 Set by Registrar Laboratory 20% N/A Tutorials 15% 20% To determine the final grade in this course, the accumulated mark, as a percentage (%), will be converted to a letter grade based approximately on the following grading scheme: A A A B B B C C C D D D F F-

4 Important Notes Concerning Grading GRADING GRADING w/ LAB w/o LAB DATE LOCATION Term Test 15% 20%Wed. Oct. 26, 2005 During Class Final Exam 50% 60%Mon. Dec. 19, 2005 Set by Registrar Laboratory 20% N/A Tutorials 15% 20% IMPORTANT NOTES You MUST pass the final exam to obtain a passing grade in the course. Laboratory and tutorial attendance is MANDATORY. A grade of incomplete in the lab will result in a grade of incomplete in the course. Students who have previous lab credit (at this University or the equivalent at another University) should see Ms. Tina Lepine in room Essex Hall.

5 Important Notes Concerning the Laboratory Portion of the Course Required to Purchase Before Attending the First Lab: Lab Manual for (Document Services, Basement CT) $ $15 00 Breakage Card (Cashiers Office) $25 00 Safety Glasses (Bookstore) $5 00 Lab Coat (Lab D) $30 00 Those of you who are repeating the course or have some form of previous laboratory credit are asked to go see Ms. Tina Lepine in Room Essex Hall to make sure that you are still signed in to a tutorial section. Lab sessions will begin on Monday September 26 th, Come prepared to work. The course website is Any problems or questions concerning the laboratory section of the course should be directed to Ms. Tina Lepine, First Year Laboratory Coordinator, room 175 Essex Hall. Phone # extension –

6 Lab Coat Sales Lab coats (mandatory to have one) will be sold on the following days in Lab D in Essex Hall: (Remember, you MUST have one to enter the lab) Friday September 9 th, 2005 from 12-3pm Monday September 12 th, 2005 from 12-3pm Wednesday September 14 th, 2005 from 12-3pm Friday September 16 th, 2005 from 12-3pm After this time they will be sold in Room Essex Hall (ask for Jenny or Sharonna) $30 00 CASH ONLY (ATM located at 7-11 or in the basement of the student centre)

7 Lab Attendance Remember, laboratory and tutorial attendance is MANDATORY. Should you miss one (1) lab or tutorial session and provide an acceptable doctors note you will be excused from that lab or tutorial and your final lab mark will be adjusted accordingly. Should you miss more than one lab or tutorial session (even with an acceptable doctors note) you will receive a non-negotiable grade of 0 for each one missed. If you anticipate that you are going to miss your assigned lab or tutorial session, contact Ms. Lepine AHEAD OF TIME to see if there are alternate arrangements that might be made.

8 Test and Exam Attendance Attendance at the midterm and final exam are MANDATORY. Should you miss the midterm examination, your final exam will be worth the combination of the value of the midterm and final examinations. w/ Lab Midterm (15%) + Final (50%) = 65% new value for the final exam. w/o Lab Midterm (20%) + Final (60%) = 80% new value for the final exam. THERE WILL BE NO MAKE UP EXAMS

9 Test and Exam Protocol Only writing instruments (pens, pencils, etc…) and calculators will be allowed on your desk with you. Only very basic scientific calculators like the TI30X or equivalent will be allowed in examinations. Any other materials (books, papers, briefcases, etc…) must be deposited away from any writing desk. Any blank paper or necessary tables will be provided. No communication between students (verbal, sharing calculators, etc…) is permitted. Place name and student number are on all test booklets used. If using loose paper make sure that your name and student number are on each sheet. ANY EVIDENCE OF CHEATING OR PLAGIARISM WILL BE IMMEDIATELY REPORTED TO THE OFFICE OF THE DEAN WHERE THE FINAL DISCIPLINARY DECISION WILL BE MADE (ranging from a zero on the assignment in question to expulsion from the University)

10 Appealing Grades  The formal appeal procedures are outlined in the University Calendar and Senate Bylaw 51.  If you wish to make an informal appeal of your grade, the following apply: Only tests written in non-erasable ink will be eligible for appeal. The basis for the appeal must be given in writing and attached to the test paper. No alterations or additions may be made to the original test paper. The appeal must be submitted to your professor before 1:30pm on the Friday following your test. All questions on exams submitted for appeal will be remarked.  Final exams will not be returned to the students but they may be reviewed by the student in the professor’s officeafter the test results have been posted.

11 Policy  Make sure to send from a University of Windsor address otherwise it may be deleted by the campus server.  Clearly identify Chemistry 140 in the subject line.  If you do not hear a reply in 2-3 days, chances are that we did not receive your message so try again or contact us during office hours or by telephone.  Please don’t expect a long-winded response. If you would like a detailed explanation about something, come and see me during office hours.
