Welcome to CHM 1046, the second general chemistry course designed for students planning to major in science and science–related fields.  The prerequisites for this course include satisfactory completion (with a grade of C or better)  of General Chemistry I (CHM 1045) and College Algebra (MAC 1105). The co-requisite for this course is General Chemistry Laboratory II (CHM 1046L).  In this course, you will continue to develop a basic understanding of many of the fundamental concepts and principles of chemistry including the physical states of matter, equilibrium theory, acids and bases, buffer solutions, entropy, free energy, electrochemistry, and nuclear chemistry.

Class Meetings: This class will meet MTWR from 12:10 PM  - 1:05 PM in SM 209.

Attendance: You are expected to attend all classes since regular attendance is one of the most significant factors which promotes success in college work. If you miss more than four (4) class meetings, you MAY BE WITHDRAWN by administrative action. If you wish to withdraw, however, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to complete the necessary forms for withdrawal; otherwise, a failing grade may result. You are responsible for the completion of all work assigned in class whether you are present or not. In the case of an absence, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to contact me. The last day for both student and administrative withdrawal is June 10, 2002.

Academic Alert:      House Bill 1545, passed by the 1997 Florida Legislature, requires that students enrolled in the same college-credit course more than two times shall pay non-resident fees for the third time they attempt the course.  Florida College and Universities were required to start “counting” attempts beginning in the Fall of 1997.  An enrollment is considered a valid attempt if the course remains on your schedule past the published College refund date (May 13, 2002 for this course). On the third attempt not only do you pay non-resident fees, but you may not withdraw from the course.  (You may not be administratively withdrawn either.)


            Fourth attempts are allowed only through an academic appeals process based on major extenuating circumstances.  All grades from the third and subsequent attempts will be calculated into the grade point ratio.


Textbook: Chemistry, 3ed  McMurry and Fay (Prentice Hall,  2001).

Examinations: There will be four period exams and a final exam in this course.  Each of the period exams will be worth 200 points and the final exam will be worth 300 points.  The lowest period–exam score will be dropped.  (The final exam score cannot be dropped.)  You must take the exams on the date and at the time they are scheduled.  THERE WILL BE NO MAKE–UP EXAMS.  If you miss an exam for ANY REASON, that exam will be counted as the dropped score.  The period exams are tentatively scheduled to be given on the following days: Thursday, May 23, Thursday, June 6, Thursday, June 13, Wednesday, July 3.  The FINAL EXAMINATION will be given Wednesday, July 17th, 2002 from 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM.

Quizzes: There will be a short quiz given at the beginning of the lecture period on all Thursdays except those Thursdays on which there is an exam. They will emphasize the problems that are assigned. The lowest quiz scores will be dropped. THERE WILL BE NO MAKE-UP QUIZZES. If you miss a quiz for ANY REASON, that quiz will be counted as one of the dropped scores.


Point Range


900 - 1000


800 - 899


700 - 799


600 - 699


0 - 599

Grades: There will be a total of 1000 points in this course: 600 points from the period exams, 100 points from the quizzes, and 300 points from the final exam. The final course grades will be assigned as follows:







Do NOT ask the instructor for your final grade after the final exam. You may see your grade by going to Eaglenet or calling the Eagleline a couple of days after the final exam.


Calculators: A graphing calculator is required and should be brought to all class sessions.  I will generally be using a TI-83 in class.
