You will need to bring it to class daily
? Molecular Model Kit : HGS Molecular Structure Model Kit (ISBN 0-7167-4822-3). You’ll need to
bring to class daily. You may want to secure the top of the box with a couple of strong rubber bands to
prevent spillage. This kit will also be used in our organic chemistry courses.
? Hand-held Calculator: Minimal requirement is a scientific calculator with log and scientific notation
functions. A graphing calculator, such as the TI- 83 or TI-84, is recommended. However, in keeping
with the policy at West Lafayette, calculator memories must be cleared before use on exams and quizzes.
The calculator will also be used in the laboratory.
REQUIRED LABORATORY TEXTS and SUPPLIES
? Lab Manual: Wink, Fetzer-Gislason, & Ellefson-Kuehn, Working With Chemistry: a Laboratory Inquiry
Program, W. H. Freeman, New York. This is a custom lab manual combining experiments from the first
and second editions of "Working with Chemistry".

Plymouth, MI 2003.
? Safety goggles (not glasses): required by state law for splash protection. You must bring and wear your
goggles at all times while working in the laboratory. We’ll use them in lecture too! ? Black Ballpoint Pen: permanent ink is required for recording all laboratory data. Any students using a
pencil for writing in lab will be penalized 10% for the current experiment. ? Bound Lab Notebook: We recommend a notebook with duplicate, numbered, and quadrille-ruled pages.
Examples include Dennison National #43-645, (computation notebook), #43-647 (laboratory notebook),
#46-649 (research notebook), and Laboratory Research Notebook, Jones and Bartlett Publishers, Inc.
These notebooks typically have fixed white pages and removable yellow pages for the carbon copies.
TEXTBOOK ON-LINE SITE
The textbook's web site is at www.whfreeman.com/acsgenchem/. It includes the Web Companion, an excellent
learning resource with interactive animations and movies illustrating and complementing the text. When a Web
companion page is available for a concept, an icon is provided in the margin of the text. Another supplement is
the Personal Tutor by Wayne Morgan (available at the web site), which provides further practice and guidance
with problems and computations.

Let is be clear from the beginning that grades in this course are based on performance, not on effort. Some of
you will need to work harder than others in order to be successful. Note that a previous course in chemistry is
required. You are therefore expected to be able to recall and use information from a basic high school level
chemistry course (or its equivalent, such as CHM 100 or 111/112.)
Unlike other chemistry courses that you may have encountered, the emphasis of CHM 115 is on active,
collaborative group learning, with a process-oriented collaborative laboratory program. The dominant theme of
the course is the connection between the molecular level (microscopic) characteristics and behavior of matter
(elemental composition, atomic structure and electronic configurations, bonding, molecular structure and
intermolecular forces) and the observable (macroscopic) physical and chemical properties of individual
Some of the principle objectives of this course are to help you improve:
? Critical thinking skills and ability to learn. This includes 1) developing good study habits and time
management skills, 2) reasoning by analogy, 3) formulating good questions, and 4) using mental, as well
as physical, models to visualize the molecular world.
? Ability to apply your knowledge to new situations (problem solving). This includes being able to
recognize what is being asked, evaluating the available information, and conceptualizing how to solve
problems. Often, this means breaking a complex problem down into smaller, more manageable
components and the use of problem-solving skills such as dimensional analysis, flowcharts,
mathematical algorithms, and common sense.
? Ability to work well with others within a team format and to take personal responsibility for your own
intellectual development. This requires good interpersonal skills, an open and inquisitive mind, a
positive attitude, self-discipline, learning from one's own mistakes, and consistent hard work.
? Ability to use scientific methodology. These methods include making careful observations, formulating
hypotheses, testing those hypotheses, and drawing conclusions.
? Appreciate the origins, assumptions, limitations, and applications of scientific models as a tool to
understanding nature. It should be realized that models are not intended to be real pictures of the
universe and that they are human constructs, subject to error, modification, and human bias.
In addition to these general objectives each chapter has specific learning objectives at the end of the
Specifics for PNC:
? Our text focuses on conceptual understanding and critical thinking, and covers fewer topics so that material
can be examined in greater depth. Students work in groups and they are actively involved in the learning
process. The course stresses the development of skills in problem-solving, communication, computer use,
and teamwork, precisely the skills that employers who are hiring college graduates look for. This is an
exciting opportunity for students to be involved in a major innovation in the teaching of general chemistry.
? The textbook is described as follows: “The concepts in the textbook and accompanying laboratory program
are those included in most general chemistry courses, presented in a different order and context. The content
emphasizes understanding principles in the context of biologically important molecules, beginning with
water. . . . . Understanding and reasoning are stressed and the discussion is supported by models, computer-
based materials, and web-based extensions to enhance visualization of important concepts.
? The pedagogy is built on active learning and group interactions in both the lecture and laboratory settings.
Activities and other thought-provoking questions posed throughout the text are intended to provide direction
and promote cooperative learning strategies and student-designed experiments. The approach relies on
faculty to facilitate active student learning and interaction.”

You may access course information by any of the following two methods:
1. WebCT: Log-on to WebCT using your first initial + first 5 letters of your last name + 00. For example,
Sharron Jenkins would log-on using the password sjenki00. WebCT should be your first and primary
source for accessing class information.
2. Only if WebCT is down, the folder for this course will be located in the “CHM115 Spring 2006” folder
under the instructor’s last name (Jenkins) on the “I” drive. The folder is accessible from on campus only.
Students are required to check the online site (WebCT) for announcements, homework, quizzes, assignments,
handouts, lectures notes, etc. You should check the site at least one week before each class. You will be
responsible for obtaining, printing, and completing assignments posted online. This is a great way for you to
stay ahead, obtain lecture notes, and even keep up with your grades.

DISABLED STUDENT ACCOMMODATIONS Purdue University North Central is committed to complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990
and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 by providing equal access to the programs, services and
benefits to qualified students with disabilities. This is done through providing reasonable accommodations based
on documentation from a qualified professional. If you have a disability that should require an accommodation during the semester, please notify your instructor as soon as possible. You may also contact Jodi James
(Disability Services Coordinator, Student Support Services, L-23) at 219-785-5374, email@example.com.
Students may receive tutoring during my office hours, Mon. 1-3pm; Tues. 8-11am, 1- 3pm; or by appointment
only. You are strongly encouraged to get help as soon as you feel help is needed. The sooner you get help with a
problem the sooner you will be able to understand the material and complete the assignments. Please do not wait
until the day before an assignment to get help.
The cumulative grade for this course will be based on the following:
AVERAGE GRADE Exams 40% 90.0-100 A Labs/Projects 40% 80-89 B Quizzes 10% 70-79 C Homework 10% 60-69 D Below 60 F
THE POINT SYSTEM
Extra Credit Points: Extra credit points are points earned in class for exceptional class participation. These
points will be added to quiz or homework grades (points are not added to exam, project, or lab grades). Points
are given at the instructor’s discretion. The Point System is a great way to earn extra credit, demonstrate what
you have learned, and show that you are prepared for class. The instructor may also choose to give extra credit
points at the end of the semester (to overall semester average) for exceptional class participation demonstrated
during the semester. Points added to semester average will not exceed 3 percentage points.
Much of our class time will be spent working in small collaborative groups, therefore attendance is expected! If
you must miss a lecture, you are responsible for obtaining and completing missed work. Reading assignments
should be completed before the subject is covered in class. After the class, re-read the assignment to clarify the
material. Work assigned problems in the body of the text and check your answers. You will also find it useful to
work through the Web Companion exercises as you encounter them in the text.
During the course of the semester, a number of in-class assignments and projects will be assigned. Some of
these may be individual, but most will be small group assignments, where everyone present in the group gets the
same grade. These assignments will NOT be announced beforehand and CANNOT be made up; you must be
there that day to do them. Missed in-class assignment will receive a grade of zero. However, extra credit points
(or assignments) may be available at the instructor’s discretion.
Some homework from the text will be assigned but not collected or graded. Answers to assigned problems will
on WebCT. The assignments provide valuable experience in solving problems similar to those on quizzes and
exams. If you are having difficulties or need extra practice, SEE ME! YOU must decide when you have
practiced enough to pass exams and quizzes.
Homework assignments are usually posted online on WebCT or given during or at the end of each scheduled
class period. Check WebCT for due dates for any assignments. Homework that is not on time, will be
considered late and receive a zero. If you miss a scheduled class, it is your responsibility to find out what you’ve
missed (from instructor/classmates/WebCT) so that you can complete and turn in homework assignments on
time. It is the goal to post all homework assignments online (WebCT). You will not be allowed to make up or
turn in homework assignments after the due date. Remember that missing a class will not excuse you from
turning in an assignment on time. Cases involving extenuating circumstances such as prolonged illness will be
handled via arrangement with your instructor.
Quizzes will be given approximately once a week. However, you should be prepared for daily unannounced
quizzes to be given at the beginning of each class or Lab. Be on time for class. Students arriving after a quiz has
been passed, will not be allowed to take that quiz. THERE WILL BE NO MAKE-UP QUIZZES. If you miss a
quiz or are late, you will be given a grade of zero for that quiz. See the Point System below to learn how you can
earn extra credit points on quiz and homework grades. Quizzes can not be made up. Exceptions may be
considered for extenuating circumstances (determined at the instructor’s discretion).
The quizzes will be used to evaluate how well you understand concepts presented in class and lab, assigned
readings, and homework and to identify areas that need more study. It is extremely important that you keep up
with the assigned readings, homework, and class presentations. Office hours are set up to provide some of the
extra help you might need if you have trouble understanding a particular topic.
EXAMS: There will be 3 major exams. The will be NO MAKE UP EXAMS. Make-up exams are given only
at the discretion of the instructor and must be made up immediately. Exams that are not made up within one
week of the missed exam will receive a grade of zero. Exams will be cumulative. Calculators may be used, but
the memories must be cleared.
LAB AND PRELAB ASSIGNMENTS: Pre-lab assignments are to be turned in at the beginning of each scheduled lab period. Pre-lab assignments are usually brief and designed to help you understand the lab activity
before you perform each lab. You will not be able to do your lab without completing your pre-lab
assignments. No extensions to lab time will be offered if you fail to complete the lab due to this delay (no
exceptions will be made). Students will work in groups of 2-3 during each lab, however, each student must
submit his/her own lab report after each experiment. Data may be shared between lab partners, however each
student should write his or her own conclusions. Labs and Pre-labs will be posted online (WebCT). Students
should print their labs, pre-lab, and other activities from the website prior to class. If you should have a problem
accessing any material online, please contact the instructor. You should check for assignments at least one week
before a scheduled class. During your lab, make sure your instructor initials your lab report. All lab reports are
due at the beginning of class the following week unless the instructor indicators otherwise. If you miss a lab,
you will need to make up the lab on the dates indicated on your class schedule. Labs that are not made up on the
designated dates will receive a zero.
? Attendance is MANDATORY!
? WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES in the laboratory AT ALL TIMES! A lab apron, old shirt or lab coat is
? NO FOOD OR DRINK IN THE LABS!
? READ AND BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THE SAFETY RULES and methods of handling chemicals.
These rules will be distributed at the first laboratory session. Unsafe laboratory practices are a danger to all
and may be grounds for low grades and, in extreme cases, expulsion from laboratory. Keep a copy of these
rules with your lab manual.
? READ THE EXPERIMENT BEFORE COMING TO LAB. The time allotted for the completion of the
experiment assumes that the student is already familiar with the procedures. Make note of any special safety
precautions. You must complete and hand in the pre-lab assignment from your laboratory manual before
you will be allowed to start your lab work.
? A quiz and pre-lab discussion is given prior to each lab. Make sure you arrive on time. Note
corrections/additions/safety precautions given during the pre-lab lecture. If anything is unclear, ASK!
? All data and observations should be taken in waterproof, non-erasable ink (ball-point). Calculations, graphs
and questions may be done in pen or pencil.
? Show the data sheets to your instructor before you leave the lab in which they were taken. Your instructor
will check the sheets for completeness and initial (sign) them. You must submit the original, signed data
sheets when you hand in your report. (If you forgot to bring your lab book on lab day, take data on notebook
paper and have these sheets signed. Even if you recopy the data into your lab manual, you must still also
hand in the original signed data sheets.) Lab reports handed in without signed data sheets attached will
NOT BE ACCEPTED!
? All laboratory experiments MUST BE COMPLETED. Missed lab experiments may be made up. Make-up
days are scheduled: the student must present a valid excuse, fill out a permission form (available from the
instructor, lab tech or on the computer site) and make up the lab on its designated make-up day.
? Laboratory reports are at the beginning of the laboratory period on the following week. Reports handed in
late (without a valid excuse) will be docked 20 points up to 3 days after the due date. Labs handed in more
than 3 days late (without a valid excuse) will not be accepted and will receive a grade of ZERO. Messy,
incomplete or illegible reports may be returned for revision before credit is given.
? A record will be kept of lab attendance, late arrivals, lab techniques and inappropriate behavior. This record,
along with the lab reports and lab final, will be used to prepare the lab grade.
LATE ASSIGNMENTS & MAKE-UP POLICY: You will not be able to make-up projects, quizzes, or homework. Cases involving extenuating circumstances such as prolonged illness will be handled via
arrangement with your instructor.
Late Policy Make-up Policy
Given at beginning of lab/class; Do not miss an exam; make-up allowed at Exams
if late to class, no extended time instructor’s discretion; make-up immediately or
given within 1 week of missed exam date
Pre-labs due at beginning of Do not miss a lab; make-up allowed at instructor’s Labs
class discretion; make-up on scheduled dates only-see
No Make-ups Projects
Given at the beginning of class No Make-ups Quizzes
Due at beginning of class No Make-ups Homework
Official Purdue policy requires attendance! IF personal or medical difficulties interfere with your attendance,
please call or EMAIL me (especially if you will miss a lab or an exam). Call the lab instructor if you will be
missing a laboratory. Several absences due to illness (yours or a family member's) may require doctor's
verification. YOU are responsible for making arrangements for making up missed work. If you have a valid
excuse for missing class (see below), you will be allowed to make up missed labs. Students are expected to
attend every class ON TIME. If a student is absent from a scheduled class, he or she is responsible for obtaining
and completing all missed assignments and/or class materials. You must have the text, a notebook, calculator,
and writing utensils when you come to class. For lab, these supplies include lab handouts and lab notebooks, etc.
Arriving to labs/class late may result in you not being allowed to perform the laboratory experiment, take a quiz
or test, or other activity. If you miss your normal lab due to an illness or other excused absence, you are expected
to arrange to make it up as soon as possible, the same week whenever possible. You will need to sign-up for
make-up labs on the scheduled dates. The Biology – Chemistry Section policy for conduct and attendance is given below: you are urged to read it and abide by it.
The following count as valid reasons for missing a class:
1. illness or accident
2. death of an immediate family member (be able to document the death and your attendance at the funeral
service or memorial service)
3. travel as part of a recognized University organization (any such travel plans must be discussed with me
before they occur).
4. court appointment (notify me before the court date)
5. military service
NOTE THAT FAMILY VACATIONS DO NOT COUNT AS A VALID EXCUSE!
CLASS WITHDRAWEL AND STUDENT LOANS
If you are having substantial difficulties and decide to withdraw from CHM 115, you may add into the lower-
level chemistry (CHM 111) with no penalty, up to the time of the first exam in CHM 111. (This is usually the 6th
week of class. However, if you withdraw from CHM 115 and do not pick up a replacement class, you may
encounter a problem with financial aid. According to the Department of Education, once classes have started, withdrawing from any class may jeopardize your future eligibility for Title IV funding, including student
loans. Any questions on this topic should be directed to the PNC Financial Aid Office.
Your chemistry course will require maximum utilization of class and lab time available and, therefore, it is
important that you arrive on time and prepared for class. This preparation includes completing the assigned
readings, homework problems, or lab assignments as well as bringing the textbook, a notebook or paper, a
calculator, and a writing utensil. Being properly prepared for class allows you to make the most of your learning
opportunities and keeps you from unnecessarily imposing on your friends or instructor. You will be expected to
1) read your email daily 2) listen to and/or record assignments announced in class and 3) check the Web Site for
your instructor's assignments/announcements. Graded assignments that are more than one page must be stapled
together before the beginning of class. All graded assignments should be placed on the desk in the front of the
room at the beginning of the class period. Cell phones must be turned off or set to silent ring during class or labs.
PEER RESPECT: It is important to recognize and to respect your classmates, the faculty, and staff at all times.
ACADEMIC HONESTY: Cheating and/or plagiarism will not be tolerated at any level. Any student caught cheating on an exam or quiz will fail the course and be reported to the administration for further action. Students
who turn in a report for a lab that they did not do will receive a zero for that lab. Any form of academic
dishonesty will be subject to these same penalties.
Academic honesty is highly valued. To avoid misunderstanding, listed below are a few examples of
activities that is considered to be dishonest.
1. Using or claiming as your own any information, data, answers, or work of another person or
2. Copying prelabs, lab reports, or homework (in other words, ANY assignments!). Remember
that copying someone else’s work does NOT constitute teamwork!
3. Giving or receiving help on any assignments for which the teacher does not permit help.
4. Giving or receiving help on tests or quizzes. This includes storing formulas or other
information in your calculator without the teacher’s permission.
5. Sharing test or quiz questions by students who take a test with students have not yet taken it.
6. Presenting false or fictitious data.
7. Plagiarism of any kind. If you are unsure as to whether it is plagiarism, ASK!
8. Aiding or making it possible for another student to misrepresent his/her work, data, information,
9. Giving false information in order to receive additional time for taking a test or turning in
POLICY CONCERNING CIVILITY, COURTESY and CLASS ATTENDANCE:
? It is expected that all students, instructors, and support staff associated with courses or any other function
offered under the direction of the Biology – Chemistry Section will interact in a civil and courteous
manner at all times;
? Students should address faculty and support staff using their appropriate title (Dr., Professor, Mr., Mrs.
? Instructor-student, student-instructor, student-support staff, support staff-student, and student-student
intercommunications will be conducted in a respectful manner at all times;
? Attend class (Purdue University has a "no cut" policy for class attendance); a sign-in check-off list will
be available for each lecture and lab
? Excessive (3 or more) unexcused absences will also be reported to the dean of students;
? Be on time for class;
? Only one person speaks at a time (talking to your classmates during class is impolite and very rude);
? Do not pack up your books and notes until the instructor indicates that class has ended;
? Rude/unruly students will be removed from class;
? Disruptive, ill-mannered behavior will not be tolerated, and will be reported to the Dean of Students
(students) or the Section Chair and Vice Chancellor for Academic Services (faculty/staff)

Note: Specific readings, homework assignments, quiz and exam info will be posted on WebCT. Make up labs may be
scheduled prior to make up days with the lab Technician.
MAKE-UP DAYS: These are the ONLY times to make up one of the listed lab experiments which you may have missed.
You must present a valid excuse and complete a permission form (available from the lab technician, the on-line site or
bulletin board ) to be allowed to make up an experiment. On each make-up day, you may make up ONE of the experiments
listed. The make-up lab will follow any lecture and/or quiz; students who are not making up an experiment can then leave,
or stay for review. (In order to make up a lab at any time other than a scheduled make-up day, you must receive permission
from the instructor and the lab technician.) All laboratory assignments must be completed to pass lab! You may also arrange to make up a lab prior to the lab make up day only if this has been arranged with the lab technician.
