Syllabus


Course Title: Fundamentals of Chemistry


Instructor: Dr. Abbas Pezeshk Department of Chemistry


Phone: 477-2257 Email:pezeshk@mnstate.edu


Website: web.mnstate.edu/pezeshk Office Hrs: 9-10 TWH


This course is an introduction to fundamental principles of chemistry required for those needing a course covering fundamental chemistry in preparation for careers such as those in Allied Health Professions. Understanding the fundamentals of chemistry is necessary to better understand science and technology problems and applications, including health-related, environmental and consumer applications. CHEM 110 carries liberal studies designation and is also a good liberal studies B course.


The text material assigned for reading are found in chapters 1 - 10 from the required text and in ancillary materials. There is no chemistry prerequisite for this class. Middle and early high school content should fulfill the necessary math requirements for this class. While a laboratory class is not required during the semester, the course will include some in-class demonstrations and activities.

Evaluation and Grading Policy:

Quizzes:

Quizzes may be given daily or as indicated on schedule or in class. There will be 10 quizzes each worth 10 points. Your lowest 2 scores will be dropped. Exams are given on Thursdays. Each exam's coverage will be announced in class. The final examination will be comprehensive and will last 2 hours.

MAKE-UP EXAMS and QUIZZES:

There will be one make-up exam which would replace one of your tests.  Make-ups will not be given for quizzes.  

Material for quizzes and examinations:

  • Exams and quizzes are closed book.

  • You will need a calculator to use for this course for homework, quizzes and exams. This must be a scientific calculator with exponent (EE or Exp) and log functions. This type of calculator is available at nominal cost. Learn to use your calculator and/or talk with the instructor about use of your calculator.



  • Programmable calculators are permitted, but, since you must show ALL WORK on the paper, they save little time. Answers without supporting work are worth nothing!

Attendance is required for this course. Absences are excused only for illness or university approved activities with written permission. Exams, homework or quizzes missed because of an unexcused absence are given grades of zero.

Grade Weights:

  • Quiz Average = 80

  • Hour Exam = 100 each (of three)

  • Group Work, Misc. 70 points

  • Final = 100

  • Total points for semester = 550

Grade Cutoffs: (in percentages of total points at the end of the semester)

  • A  87- 100%

  • B  75-86%

  • C  60-74%

  • D  50-59%

  • F  below 50%

Persons within 1 point of a borderline may, at the instructors' discretion, be given the next higher letter grade IF the final exam grade is well above the criterion for that grade range.

Examination Schedule:


Hour exams are held on Thursdays, September 28, October 26, and November 30, 2006 at 10:00 am, in 325 Hagan. Your FINAL EXAM is scheduled for Tuesday December 19, 2006 at 9:00 am in 325 Hagen.
