OUTLINE: This course covers the principles of general chemistry with emphasis on making observations and recording quantitative laboratory measurements to enable the student to understand chemical concepts.

The first and second semesters cover the fundamentals of measurement and the use of significant figures; energy relationships in physical and chemical changes; calculations involving formulas, and balancing chemical equations based on the laws conservation of matter and energy and the rules of stoichiometry; the atomic theory, the periodic table, and bonds between atoms and the structures of molecules; solutions and the quantitative relationship between solute-solvent; chemical equilibrium, rates of chemical reactions, and oxidation- reduction reactions; and the basic principles of nuclear chemistry, organic chemistry and biochemistry. The reading and analysis of articles on applications of chemistry and how they affect the world is part of literacy in science.

Students will present a course project that reflects integration of main concepts of Chemistry, Biology and Environmental Science.

TEXTBOOK: Zumdahl, Zumdahl, DeCoste World of Chemist, .y. Houghton Mifflin Company, 2002.

ATTENDANCE: Daily attendance and being on time are important aspects of learning. Good attendance is essential for grasping the material of this course. Tardiness will not be tolerated.


ASSIGNMENTS: You will need a bound notebook for class notes and homework, two composition-format notebooks for lab reports and comprehensive reading  assignments. To be successful, students will need to study a minimum of one hour each day. Lab reports will be subject to random checks for points. Late work will not be accepted. Homework will be assigned in each class meeting, including Fridays.

GRADES: The semester grade will be based on the proportion of the total possible points earned by the student in the course of the entire semester. The grade components and their weights in the overall grade are as follows: homework, control questions*, and quizzes*-40%, chapter tests -20%, semester final exam-20%, lab work-10%, project-10%. The grade scale is as follows:

A 90-100%      B 80-89%      C 70-79%      D 69-60%      


*)   the control questions and quizzes are based on the homework assignments.

CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR: Students are expected to comply with the standards of good conduct stated in the California Education Code. In the interest of safety, students are forbidden to eat or drink in the chemistry classroom at all times, and the use of safety eye-wear during laboratory activities when indicated by the teacher is mandatory.

Cheating will not be tolerated

PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT: I will be informing your parents about absences and

tardiness and about your progress in class.

Parents/guardians are welcome to take an active role in their student's work, particularly for

the completion of homework.
