ASSIGNMENTS AND HOMEWORK PROBLEMS:

It would be very helpful if you have read over the assigned readings for a particular lecture. Read up to and including the designated sections in the text. At least you will have some idea of what the lecture will be about. After the lecture, read the text a second time and work through the examples in the text as well as review your lecture notes.

Ungraded Homework in Textbook: SP = Sample Problems; Q&P = Questions and Problem within the Chapter:

You are strongly, strongly urged to do problems in the textbook, even though I will not collect or grade them. They serve as a minimum illustration of the kinds of problems you should be able to do on quizzes and exams. A word of advice, work some chemistry problems everyday, as merely attending class or reading the text is not enough.

1) Do the sample problems (solutions immediately following) the study check has the answer at the back of the text.
2) Do the Question and Problems concentrating on the odd numbered problems. The answers for the odd number problems are provided at the end of the text book.
3)Do all of the quiz problems in the Virtual Chembook, answers are provided under the paladin menus. The problems represent a cross-section of those available. These homework problems are not turned in for grading.

Graded homework from Class Notes:

There are 13 Weekly Homework sets to be completed in class or at home. We will work on some questions as part of the lecture. Then you should work the rest of the problems that apply and be prepared with questions on the next class period. Group work is permitted. These homework sets will not be collected, but some of the content will be checked in Blackboard quizzes which are explained next.

Notes Summaries:

There are four note summary sheets which will be turned in for grading. This will be done mostly on sheer volume of writing, the less white space left, the higher the grade. Seriously, this gives you an opportunity to recopy some of your notes and get all of the important concepts in one place. It should serve as a good review sheet for an exam. Even though there are a few places filled in as guidelines, you should put anything on the sheet that seems right for you. What do you think is important to know? Write it down! They are worth 10 points a piece in the grading scheme.

Purchase or Print your own Homework Sets:

The homework sets along with power point lecture notes are available from the instructor as a complete book for $15. (250-300 pages)
If you do not wish to purchase the book, you can print them yourself. The Word Documents and the Power Point slides are available in Blackboard or from the course website in the linked course schedule: http://www.elmhurst.edu/~chm/onlcourse/CHM103/

Sixteen Homework "quizzes" are required and available from Blackboard.

These quizzes are keyed to the weekly homework and the chapters in the text. These consist of 20 -24 random questions from a pool of questions worth 10 - 12 points for each homework set. For some questions there are direct references to a specific Question number in the Weekly homework. For other questions it may just reference the Text, in which case you should know the answer from general knowledge or you may check the text. If you have not completed the homework questions, then the quiz may be more difficult.

You may do the online homework multiple times until you are satisfied with your grade. You may use notes, the textbook, and your friends for help in answering the online questions as the objective is for you to engage in the material of a chapter. Eventually, you should work toward the goal of being able to complete questions of this type without help and without looking up the answers. You should carefully keep track of the "disappearing dates" when the quiz will no longer be available. Students use these to review for the hourly exam. From the Check grades section, if you click on your grade, you will be able to review the quiz but not retake it or change it.

There are "old" exams from the previous year posted in Blackboard. It is to your advantage to work an old exam as a final test of your preparation for an hourly exam.

Drug Homework Assignment:

A drug assignment sheet is available on the end of the syllabus. This will be due a few days after Spring Break.

Grading Points:
100 1 Final Exam
400 4 Exams @ 100
160 16 Online Homeworks @ 10
40 4 Notes Summary Sheets @ 10
10 1 Drug Homework

710 TOTAL

The final grade is based on a percentage of the total possible points. As a starting point, the grade ranges are: 100-91% = A; 90-81% = B; 80-71% = C; 70-61% = D

If an exam or quiz is missed, it can be made up without deduction of points, if prior arrangements have been made and a written excuse is supplied and if I have not handed the exam back in class. If these conditions are not met, I have the option of deducting 15-20% from the total points possible.

Cases of cheating will be dealt with in accordance with the procedures in the E Book. You may fail an assignment or you may fail the entire course.

The College will make reasonable accommodations for persons with documented disabilities. If you have a disability that may have some impact on your work in this course, please contact the Director of Advising at 103 Goebel Hall (617-3450).
