Chemistry – The City College of New York
This course is the first of a two-semester sequence and consists of three components lecture, laboratory, and workshopwhich are integrated to provide a comprehensive but thorough introduction to the principles of chemistry. The laboratory component introduces students to common laboratory methods including visible spectroscopy and titration.
The workshop is a peer-led, small group discussion of concepts and problem solving in general chemistry. How to succeed in General Chemistry… Learning Chemistry is cumulative — if you miss a class you will miss a significant building block, which will affect your exam performance, scores, and final grade as well as your ability to understand material in future courses.
So, attendance for all lectures, labs, and workshops while required is critical to your success. Further, your own practice by doing homework and becoming engaged with the material as well as engaged with your classmates in workshop and lab discussions of chemical concepts will help you build your knowledge to succeed.
Learning these skills will prepare you for your chosen major and professional career. Math, In order to move on to Chem you need a grade of C or better in this class 3 lect. Perform unit conversions and express values with the correct number of significant figures. Express and interpret atomic symbols, atomic number, mass number, and molar mass. Understand and apply concepts of balancing chemical reactions, and be able to perform stoichiometric calculations.
Define enthalpy and solve catalyat equations. Express quantum energy levels of atoms and relate these to atomic properties. Draw and interpret Lewis-dot structures, predict three dimensional structure of simple molecules, and draw simple molecular orbital catalysh. Apply the ideal gas law to problems involving changes in moles, pressure, volume and temperature.
Solve problems involving solution chemistry such as titration and precipitation. Write a laboratory report including data and analysis. Be able to conduct a variety of experiments titration, spectroscopic including accurate recording of labpratory and preparation of calibration curves. Be aware and follow the safety requirements in a chemical laboratory. Analyze molecular modeling and graphic plots using computers.
Communicate concepts and problem solving of chemistry that have been presented in lecture. Work as part of a problem solving team to solve chemistry problems. Apply chemical principles to selected applications in life science or technology. Its Properties and Measurement 3. Introduction to Reactions in Aqueous Solutions 7.

See posted schedule near door. Homework will be assigned for each chapter using an online system called Mastering Chemistry. The login sheet was included in the packet that you purchased from the bookstore. There will be no make-up semester exams. Attendance General Chemistry Policy: All portions of the course lecture, lab and workshop are required. You are permitted one unexcused absence.
Berlanh you are absent for more than one session, please speak with the professor immediately. You will be automatically dropped from the course at the end of the berlqnt if bwrlant have not spoken to the professor, and you have more than one unexcused absence. Manuak will be given a WU grade, which converts to an F if not officially withdrawn within 3 weeks of the last day of the semester.
Students are expected to attend every class session of each course in which they are enrolled and to be on time. An instructor has the right to drop a student from a course for excessive absence.
They should note that an instructor may treat lateness as equivalent to absence. No distinction is made between excused and unexcused absences. Each instructor retains the right to establish his or her own policy, but students should be guided by the following general College policy: In courses designated as clinical, performance, laboratory or field catalgst courses, the limit on absences is established by the individual instructor.
For all other courses, the number of hours absent may not exceed twice the number of contact hours the course meets per week. When a student is dropped for excessive absence, the Registrar will enter the grade of WU. All students must read the details regarding plagiarism and cheating in labofatory to be familiar with the rules of the college.
Cases where academic integrity is compromised will be prosecuted according to these rules. In compliance with CCNY policy and equal access laws, appropriate academic accommodations are offered for students with disabilities. Students must first register with The AccessAbility Center for reasonable academic accommodations.
Under The Americans with Disability Act, an individual with a disability is a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. If you have any such issues, I encourage you to visit the AccessAbility Center to determine which services may be appropriate for you. Noise and excessive chatter, eating, drinking, or use of unauthorized electronic equipment is not allowed in the classroom. Do the problem sets individually without help from friends or classmates initially.
Please look at a related problem in the solution manual to help you solve the assigned problem. If you are still unable to solve the problem, then ask a friend, classmate, workshop leader, TA, or Professor for help. Read the book and take notes as you read. Seek help when you have difficulty office hours, tutoring, study groups with workshop. Lab – Queensborough Community College. The Developing Human Brain 2 units Fall
