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
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.
These rules are for your protection and no exceptions will be permitted.
In this lab you will be working with chemicals that the potential to be harmful to your health or to the health of an unborn child. Please be attentive to any cautionary statements given by your instructor or listed on the labels of chemical containers. If you think you may be pregnant or are planning to be pregnant, it is your responsibility to alert the instructor so that additional safety precautions may be taken or alternatives found.
Other Class Conduct
Computers make writing and revising much easier and more productive. Students must recognize though that technology can also cause problems. Printers run out of ink and hard drive crash. Students must be responsible for planning ahead and meeting deadlines in spite of technology. Be sure to save copies of your work to disk, hard drive, flash pen, etc., and print out paper copies for backup purposes. Save as often as possible when you are working. Remember, you are not the only one in class and we have a lot of material to cover. Ask questions, but do not monopolize the class time.
This is an introduction to chemistry for science major course. It is designed to develop fundamental tools for chemistry and biology majors and those preparing for the Various Professional Entrance Examinations: GRE, MCAT, VCAT, PCAT, and DAT. The definition of education is the ability to think and to think critically. It is the ability to collect data and assimilate that data. This course will give you the tools and much practice to apply your critical thinking ability to chemistry.
