Basic qualitative analysis of functional groups and separation of compounds of different functional groups. Co requisite: CH317. 0:4:1Educational Philosophy: I believe in supporting student learning and maintaining high expectations for student performance. I will, to the best of my ability, provide an environment conducive to student learning.
I have an open door policy to students. Please feel free to stop by and ask questions, or just come in for a chat! This is especially important if you start feeling overwhelmed or lost.Class Assessment: Lab Reports (including prelab activities) will constitute 75% of the grade for the course.
Midterm Exam: 10%
Final Exam 15%
Grading: 10 Lab Reports -- 100 points each = 1000 points
1 Midterm Exam -- 135 points
1 Final Exam -- 200 points
Lab Reports should follow the outline described on pages 5-16 in the Padias text. These will be provided for your reference.
The following should be completed in your lab notebook in ink BEFORE coming to the lab:
Date, Title of the Experiment, Objective, Balanced equations (if applicable), introductory section containing any physical constants such as molecular weight, bp, mp, etc., and a bulleted procedure.
During the lab, you should keep your notebook close by and record the operations you perform and observations you make.
After the lab, you will analyze your results and write a detailed conclusion as outlined on page 12 of the lab textbook.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92
Academic Honesty will be expected at all times! Even though most experiments will be carried out in pairs, the report must be in your own words. Data will be the same, but the interpretation of that data must be written in your own words. For the first offense, the report grades will be divided evenly between the two partners. Second offense will receive a grade of zero for the lab report for both partners. A third incidence will be reported to the Academic Dean, the Dean of Student Life and the Provost for disciplinary action.
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92-93
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 95-96
Missed labs cannot be made up. One lab a semester will be prorated.
Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply.
