Syllabus for Advanced Chemistry
Fall Semester 2009

General Description: This Advanced Chemistry Course is designed to be the equivalent of the general chemistry course taken during the first year of college. Students successfully completing this course will be endowed with an exceptional understanding of the fundamentals of chemistry and achieve proficiency in solving chemical problems. This course will contribute to the development of each student’s ability to think critically and to express his/her ideas, in both oral and written fashion, with clarity and logic. Students must be disciplined, self-motivated and industrious.

Course Objectives: • Quantitatively and qualitatively describe matter and its changes by applying concepts of liquids, solids, gases, solutions, chemical reactions, atomic theory, chemical bonding, nuclear chemistry, stoichiometry, equilibrium, kinetics, and thermodynamics. • Apply and analyze chemical concepts through chemical calculations such as percent composition, molar masses, empirical formulas, gas laws, mole fractions, chemical kinetics, and standard electrode potentials and their use. • Create, conduct, and analyze the laboratory experiments to engage and reinforce learning of concepts taught throughout the course. • Demonstrate critical and independent thinking and an appreciation for the natural world. Grade Scale: The DA grading scale is as follows: A 100-93 A92-90 B+ 89-87 B 86-83 B82-80 C+ 79-77

C CD+ D DF

76-73 72-70 69-67 66-63 62-60 59 or below

Grading: All significant assignments will have written instructions including due dates and clear expectations. Refer to the course overview for further grading breakdown. Classroom Policies: This class will follow the DA discipline plan as described in the handbook and discussed during orientation. Students who misbehave will be given a green or red card, be excused from class, and be expected to email their parents about whatever behavior issue they struggled with.

Drop Date: The last day to drop a DA course (without incurring a W [withdrawal] on your transcripts) is October 5th. Please pay careful attention to this date.

Tentative Schedule for the First 16 Weeks
Adjustments will be made as necessary to meet the interests of the students and to maintain reasonable expectations. There will be little assigned homework other than finishing any work that isn’t completed in class.
