General Chemistry I Laboratory (CHM 1045L) is the first course of a sequence of two laboratory courses primarily for students who are in science or science-related majors. In this laboratory course, students will have an opportunity to observe some of the phenomena of matter and obtain practical skills in using various items of laboratory equipment. Upon completion of this course students should have a deeper and more concrete understanding of the experimental science of chemistry.
There are 10 different laboratory exercises scheduled to be done during the weeks specified in the SCHEDULE section of this outline. Because of the large number of laboratory sections and the full use of time available during the semester, there will be no opportunity to make individual laboratory exercises. Only in cases of emergency, you must notify your instructor before the class session. In such case, the laboratory experiment should be made up during the week that it was assigned. In order to make up the experiment, these procedures should be followed:
*Notify your instructor and get a note from them stating their approval and awareness of your absence.
*Obtain an official excuse from your dean.
*Bring the excuse and the note to laboratory coordinators office in JONES HALL room 405.
*At this time, you will receive a form with the time that you can make your experiment up.
Appointments for office visits other than during scheduled office hours may be made on an individual basis for the mutual convenience of the students...
