| Basis for Grading:
lecture part of the course is worth 70% of the organic chemistry
grade. The lab is worth
30%. At the end of the
course, the grade earned in lecture will be scaled down to a score
based on 70 total points.
This grade will be added to your laboratory grade which will
be scaled to 30. Upon
combination, the undergraduate grades will be considered and grades
on the 4.0 scale will be assigned. With each exam,
students will be given an idea as to how they are doing on the 4.0
scale. The instructor
will curve grades when averages are significantly below
|Two, 90 minute, self-scheduled, self administered, exams|| 42%|
| 8 to 10, 10 to 15 minute quizzes (in class)
| One, three-hour, self scheduled final exam, cummulative from January|| 30%|
| Credit for written answers to worksheets and written out mechanisms to flashcards|| 6%|
| Attendance|| 2%|
| Scheduled exam dates:
||Week of March 5, 2019, self-scheduled, administered by library
||Week of April 23, 2019, self-scheduled, administered by library
||In class on Friday AM, 10-15 minutes, announced on prior Monday.
Important for your grade worksheets and flashcard work. You will be directed on two ocassions to turn these in and they will be returned rapidly.
||During Final Exam Period -self-scheduled: May 7 - May 18
|4.||Policies regarding extensions, make-up exams and extra help.|
Extensions and make-up exams will be allowed only in extreme
situations. The student must have approval from dean and instructor.|
Unless directed otherwise by the instructor, all written work is to be done independently without the aid of humans, textbooks, notebooks or other written materials. When time is called you are obligated to immediately turn in quizzes and exams.|
All students must have an email account because vital messages are routinely sent out via email. If you are new to the course, please send the instructor an email at email@example.com.
The web is a very big part of this and the laboratory course. If you haven't checked out yet, please visit the organic chemistry web site that is linked into Noodle site or just Google "Nerz-Stormes".|
