All class materials, including this syllabus, schedule of experiments and laboratory handouts as well as useful links to other websites will be posted and periodically updated on the following web page: http://www.d.umn.edu/~pgrundt/2544
CHEM 2541 (Organic Chemistry I Lecture) and CHEM 2543 (Organic Chemistry I Laboratory)
Macroscale and Microscale Organic Experiments 5th or 6th Edition by Williamson/Minard/Masters
College ruled, bound Laboratory Book
12 Experiments (12 x 10 pts)
10 Quizzes (10 best of 12 quizzes, 3 pts each
Final (date and time to be announced)
- The write-up of every experiment constitutes a major portion of the grade for this course. Your notebook will be collected on 4 occasions (dates to be announced). If you do not hand in your notebook on time up to 10 pts may be deducted from your score for each occurrence. Furthermore, if you happen to "adjust" yields, melting points etc. to any other values than you observed, you may receive 0 pts for that particular experiment.
- The purpose of the quizzes is to verify that you did prepare for the up-coming experiments of each laboratory session. There is no quiz in first week and last week of this laboratory course. The quizzes will be given in the first 5 minutes of the beginning of each laboratory session. If you are late, you may not be able to take the quiz and a score of 0 pts may be included in the total quiz score.
- TA assessment. General performance in the laboratory. Points may be deducted if your TA considers your behavior in laboratory to be a safety risk for yourself and others. Points may also be deducted if the TA or another student has to clean your work space. The TA's decision to deduct points is final.
- There will be no opportunity to make up a missed Laboratory period. The UMD policy for excused absences applies.
