Course Description:
CH108L Introduction to Chemistry Laboratory I: Students are introduced to basic laboratory techniques. Experiments will reinforce materials covered in the lecture component of this course. Corequisite: CH108. 0:3:1

Educational Philosophy:
I maintain high expectations for student performance and will spend the time necessary with them to attain this.  While on campus I will be available to students and will make arraingements for other times if necessary.

Core Assessment:

70% of the final exam

Link to Class Rubric

Class Assessment:

12 Lab reports or worksheets
Final exam

Grading:

Lab reports will count as 80% of grade.
Final exam will count as 20% of grade.
 
Grading Scale:  90% - 100% = A
                        80% - 90%   = B
                        70% - 80%   = C
                        60% - 70%   = D
                                 <60%   =F

Late Submission of Course Materials:
All Laboratory reports will be turned in before leaving the lab.  Excused absences will be made up before the next regular lab session.  For an excused absence the instructor must be notified before the class by email.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
The laboratory can be a safe place if all safety rules are followed.  Anyone repeatedly not following safety guidlines will be asked to leave and receive a 0 for the Lab session.   Students are asked to maintain an atmosphere conducive to learning and a good work ethic while in the laboratory.  Cell phones should be turned off while in the Laboratory.  (You do not want your cell phone contaminated with unknown chemicals.)

Course Topic/Dates/Assignments:

The laboratories procedures will be distributed in the lecture Mondays before the laboratory for the students to prepare and review.

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 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 95-96

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 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 95

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "F".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.

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.
