Course Description:
CH329 Introduction to Instrumental Analysis: An introduction to modern instrumental methods of chemical analysis. The course will span theory of operation, instrument design and methodology, and applications of instrumental techniques. Spectroscopic methods including infrared, UV/VIS, AA, MS, and; chromatographic methods including gas, liquid, and thin layer methods of analysis will be covered. Prerequisite: CH328. 3:3:4

Educational Philosophy:
The instructor's educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, reading assignments, homework, quizzes and examinations, along with the laboratory techniques and principles.  The instructor will engage each learner to encourage the lively exploration of ideas and issues relevant to the modern aspects faced by analytical chemists.

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Choose an appropriate instrumental method given a measurement problem.
  2. Demonstrate operative knowledge of the instrumentation in the Chemistry Department at Park University and quickly master new instruments you will encounter in the future.
  3. Assemble, organize, and present oral and written technical information.
  4. Design an integrated approach to analytical problem solving.
  5. Discuss and explain the range and application of analytical instrumentation available to the analytical chemist.
  6. Demonstrate preparedness for the next level in which analytical methodologies and problem solving skills are required.

Class Assessment:

1.  Assigned Reading:  students will be expected to read the textbook, thoroughly and critically.
 
2.  Attendance:  Park University requires attendance to be taken for all scheduled classes. Park University regulations state that a student will be withdrawn after they have been absent for two weeks consecutively.
 
3.  Homework:  the best way to learn chemistry is to work problems. Homework problems will be assigned, and graded periodically throughout the semester.
 
4. Exams: it will be extremely difficult to pass this course without taking all of the exams.  Make-up exams will be given only if the student contacts the instructor PRIOR to the exam with a reasonable excuse (medical, death of an immediate family member).

Grading:

Grading:
  The final grade will be based on the quiz, exam and laboratory scores as follows:

                                    Exams (3)                      40%

                                    Homework                    15%

                                    Laboratory                    25%

                                    Final Exam                    20%

                                    Total                            100%

The grading scale (A, B, C...) will reflect the class grade distribution.

Late Submission of Course Materials:
The instructor will not accept late assignments.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:

Cell phones must be turned off during class.

Course Topic/Dates/Assignments:
The lecture schedule will be announced in class.

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.
