Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
This will be a final exam worth 20-25% of the final
grade. It will have the following:
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
COURSE ASSESSMENT: COURSE ASSESSMENT: Lab technique, notebook, and results
Lab technique: You are required to have presence of mind while working in the lab. You will be graded on how well you receive instructions, cleanliness of bench space, presence of mind, common sense etc. This semester you will be graded on lab technique.
Lab notebook: This should be a hard cover notebook (or the continuation of the book you have from CH317). Try obtaining one that has page numbers in it so you don't have to number each page. Lab notebook is an integral part of any laboratory. It should be kept neat and updated.
1) number all pages 2) leave a few pages in the front for table of contents 3) write only on the right hand side of the notebook 4) always write in third person past tense (e.g. The melting point was found to be.... rather than " I took the melting point and .....)
5) if you make a mistake just draw a line through it rather than painting it black.
6) lab notebooks should be brought to each lab and written as the lab proceeds rather than writing the procedure at home.
Your lab notebook will be graded on the following points:
1) completion of lab experiment data ie the title, materials, procedure, calculations, conclusion etc.
2) mention of all the points during the lab procedure (including any changes you might have made)
3) after the third experiment points will be taken off for grammar.
4) make sure the spelling of technical words and compounds is correct
Product: In cases where you will submit the product the grading will be done on the basis of the following points:
1) dryness of the product 2) color of the product 3) cleanliness of the product 4) how clean the sample container is 5) data on the product (melting/boiling point, percent yield, spectrum, interpretation of results, etc.)
CAUTION: We will be dealing with chemical compounds during the course hence the following are mandatory for the whole semester
THE FOLLOWING ARE TO BE OBSERVED DURING ALL LAB CLASSES
You must always wear goggles in the lab. (Glasses are insufficient for organic labs).
Absolutely no eating, drinking or smoking in the lab.
You should consider taking the lab another time if you are pregnant.
No shorts or short skirts in the lab.
Always wear shoes in the lab.
PUNCTUALITY IS A MUST. All lab instructions are given during the first few minutes of class, hence if you miss those you will either not know what to do or you will disturb your colleagues.
You will not be allowed to do the lab if any of the above are not followed.
Working in the lab:
Everyone is expected to be cautious and take their work seriously in the lab.
There should be no pranks or running around in the lab.
It is always better to look around and move, you may be safe yourself but you might hurt your neighbor.
Always call the instructor to your bench, do not carry around samples around unless instructed.
Punctuality in the lab : Most instructions and safety precautions for the lab are given in the beginning of the lab session hence it is mandatory that everyone be punctual to the lab. Anyone late by 5 mins might consider not coming to the lab at all that day. The door of the laboratory will be closed after the first five minutes of the lab session.
You are encouraged to attend all labs - simply because no credit will be given for the lab that is missed or report not turned in - i.e. no makeup labs will be given.
Each lab is linked with the other in terms of techniques in an organic lab. You might lag behind in techniques if you miss any lab.
One experiment may require two lab days ie a total of 4 hours. Hence if you miss the first part of the experiment consider the whole lab as missed.
GRADING PLAN: This section is where you list your course grading plan(s) for assessment measures. Your earned final grade is bases on you performance on three examinations, a comprehensive final examination, homework, and your performance in the laboratory no more stringent than according to the following:
Technique 100 points A 1021 -1200 points
Notebook 200 B 888 -1020
Reports (14x50) 700 C 744 - 887
Results (MP, spect.) 200 D 650 - 886
TOTAL 1200 points F <650
Week one Safety Caffeine extraction
Week two Purification/thinlayer analysis of caffeine Fermentation of Sucrose
Week three essential oils/green chemistry Computational chemistry
Week four Polarimetry and optical activity
Week five Interconverstion of 4-tert-butylcyclohenanol and 4-tert-butylcyclohexanone project
Week six Na borohydirde reduction of 4-tert-butylcyclohexanone and computational chemistry
Week seven Synthesis of a-D-Glucose pentaacetate and b-D-Glucose pentaacetate, Kinetics
Week eight Analysis using polarimetry, HPLC, GC
Everyone working in the laboratory is responsible for laboratory safety. Common sense will take care of most situations but if you have any questions or concerns, please ask the instructor. Anyone who seriously endangers the safety of themselves or others in the laboratory will be given only one warning. In the event that a second warning is to be issued, the student will be removed from the laboratory and a grade of zero for the laboratory experiment.
Each student must wear approved safety glasses/goggles in the laboratory. Only one warning will be given: each additional warning will result in a five-point fine.
1. All students are required to wear goggles or other approved eye protection in the lab at all times.
2. An instructor must be present for you to be in the laboratory
3. All students must come to the laboratory prepared to perform the experiment. This means that you have read and understand what you are going to do before coming to lab. Your notebook is up-to-date with your procedure written out.
4. The proper attire is worn, (NO shorts, short skirts, sleeveless shirts or blouses, tank tops, sandals or open-toed or open-back shoes will be allowed in the laboratory.). Your body must be covered.
5. No FOOD or DRINK will be permitted in the laboratory at any time. (No gum, no bottled beverage, even if it is closed in your backpack. Leave it outside the room.)
6. You should keep your bags and coats on the side benches. Under no circumstances will they be allowed to be in your work area.
7. Chemicals are not to be removed from the laboratory.
8. You must beware of the required safety precaution by reviewing the MSDS provided for you in the lab.
9. Pant cuffs must not drag on the floor.
These rules are for your protection and no exceptions will be permitted.
