FINAL EXAM (Spring 2017) - Tuesday 9 May 2017, 1:00 - 3:00 PM
 

CHEM 101 General Chemistry is a systematic treatment of the fundamental laws and theories of chemistry and their applications. Designed for science and engineering majors.

Course objectives: CHEM 101 introduces fundamental concepts of atomic theory, periodic properties of the elements, chemical bonding, molecules and compounds, states of matter and intermolecular forces, thermodynamics, solution chemistry, and chemical equilibrium, including equilibria of aqueous solubility and acid-base reactions.

Grading: Your grade will be based on scores (totals in parentheses) in four in-class exams (400), a final exam (200), quizzes (150), online homework (200), and group activities (50). Grades are assigned on the basis of point percentage according to the scale: 90-100 A-/A; 80-89 B-/B/B+; 70-79 C-/C/C+; 60-69 D/D+; <60 F. Note that adjustments to this scale may be made according to the class distribution of total scores and your level of class participation. NOTE: It is your responsibility to be familiar with and abide by GU's Academic Honesty Policy.

Missed exams, quizzes, late homework: I will permit make-up exams only for students with a legitimate, urgent excuse who have contacted me prior to the exam. There will be no make-up quizzes. I reserve the right to deduct points from homework that is turned in late
