Chemistry 112.3 Section 04 Winter Semester 2015 Prof. Ian Burgess Office Number : Thorv. 256 Email : email@example.com
Components of Chem 112 Laboratory : intended for students to learn chemistry from a hands-on approach. Labs are coordinated by Dr. Alex Bartole-Scott. I do not have anything to do with the labs. 20% Homework : all done on computer. Submitted electronically. Details to follow. 10% Midterm : Saturday, February 28 th, 10am-noon. 20% Final : sometime during final exam period. 50%
Your final grade in the course will be assigned based primarily on your overall mark. Note, however, that we will not allow laboratory or homework marks to compensate for failing examination marks. In addition, if your mark in homework assignments is above the class average, but your mark in examinations is far below the class average, your homework will be taken into account with a smaller percentage value as that indicated above. In order to be assigned a passing final grade, you must fulfill ALL THREE of these conditions: Obtain an overall mark greater than 50%, AND attend the laboratory regularly and obtain a satisfactory mark therein, AND achieve a satisfactory performance in the examinations.
Chem 112 Textbook Textbook: 1.Chemistry: A Molecular Approach Custom Workbook, 2014 edition 2. Chemistry 112.3 Laboratory Manual, 2014/2015 Edition. Both are available through the Bookstore NOTE: Must have MasteringChemistry access to complete graded homework assignments.
