Course expectations

 

Respect everyone in class.

Students are responsible for ALL aspects of the course.

Follow all laboratory safety instructions.

Course description 

 

This course satisfies the SFUSD high school graduation requirement.

Due to the culumative nature of chemistry, strongly recommend forming a study group (password = 94109G) and get chem tutoring as soon as any problem arises.

Textbook:  World of Chemistry. Zumdahl et al.

additional resources: chemwiki @ UCDavis; CK12 chem ebook; Khan Academy videos

required course materials; bring to class

  • pen and / or pencil
  • a lab notebook = bound notebook
  • binder paper (or bound notebook ≠ lab notebook)
  • calculator able to (i) evaluate log, ln, 10 x, & e x and (ii) enter numbers in scientific notation (e.g. EE or Exp button on the calculator)
  • textbook

prerequisite:  algebra I

Grades

  A = 88 - 100 % exams = 30 %
  B = 75 - 87.9 class work* = 30
  C = 60 - 74.9 lab = 20
  D = 30 - 59.9 class participation = 10
  F = < 30 homework* = 10
 

the semester grade and grading period grades are based on the above components and it's cumulative from the beginning of the semester, thus the semester grade may not be the average of your grading period grades. Student responsibility to monitor the online gradebook. grade cut-off based, in part, on 'power of zero' argument.

* fall semester only; in the spring semester, will combine CW & HW

Class policies 

 

extra credit points: attending Calday earns 3 points; provide proof of attendance, e.g. schedule / program of events and written summary of your activities; must attend one science related event; turn-in on Monday after Calday.

academic integrity (e.g.1; 2; potential consequence; e.g. 1; 2): Cheating on an exam or plagiarism (e.g. lack of appropriate citation in a lab assignment; inlcude in-text citation) is unacceptable; potential consequences (teacher discretion):  (i) score = 0 (default, which can't be dropped), (ii) negative points, (iii) lower semester grade by 1 level, and (iv) semester grade = F.

include your name(s) & period on all turned-in material; otherwise, no points.

Based on the benefits of group work in school and the workplace (general; chem), up to two students may work in a group for their prelab and / or lab report and / or HW assignments; excludes test / quiz; up to four students for CW.

late work (i.e. homework, prelab, or lab report) due to an absence is due on the day of your return to class and write "absent" on it and write the score on any HW assignments; otherwise, no points.

exams

  • score = 0 for being absent on day of exam / quiz
  • open notes; may use your calculator, chemistry periodic table, and any handouts with numercial values of various constants. may write notes on this paper.  may use photocopy of textbook appendixes, but no notes may be written on it.
  • may include recent lab and / or integrate prior related chemistry content
  • Final exam is cumulative & multiple choice format

class work / homework

  • include HW score on HW:  2 points for trying each problem, 1 point for trying part of a problem, 0 point for no attempt on a problem; any multiple-part problem is still worth 2 points. 
  • bring your textbook to class on the day of HW collection or whenver there's a CW assignment using your textbook
  • CW will be collected at the end of the period and would usually invovle group work, where each group has up to 4 students.
    • identify the recorder
    • alternate recorder duties
    • recorder photocopies the group's response and provides a copy to the other group members
    • if a student(s) does not contribute to the group effort, then do not write those student(s)' name(s) on the assignment
    • video / textbook CW: use both resources, share / combine the information, and submit groupwork

labs

  • turn-in prelab assignments & lab reports at the beginning of class
  • prelab due on the day of the lab; lab report due date on course website
  • lab report score = 0 if no prelab done or misbehave during lab
  • no make-up labs, but can get lab data from a classmate and to avoid plagirism, cite data source & state absence
  • read lab notebook rubric / scoresheet and lab safety rules; sign & attach to the end of your lab notebook; otherwise, no lab notebook points
  • to prepare your lab report, use Word (including equation editor) & Excel as appropriate, i.e. no handwritten lab report will be accepted
  • lost of prelab / lab report points for improper sequence of content

class participation

  • 2 points / non-block day; 4 points / block day. as a tardy, absence, and / or lack of materials (e.g. pen, paper, textbook, prelab, etc.) preclude class participation, you will lose point(s). specifically, absence = lost of all points, while tardy = lost of half of points and lack of material = lost of half of points.

Any exceptions to the policy in the syllabus will require a note (stating your name & description of the situation & item number in the grade book) signed by me.  Fill-out survey & signature form.
