PLEASE NOTE: While the figures above represent the breakdown of the laboratory grade, the laboratory grade will constitute 30% of the composite lecture/lab final grade. The lecture grade will constitute the other 70%.
|5||Supplemental materials such as exam answers, practice problems, spectra and reserve materials (passwords will be supplied by your instructor) will be found on the organic chemistry web site at www.brynmawr.edu/Acads/Chem/mnerzsto/index.html. There will also be a nominal number of copies of reserve materials in the Collier Science Library and on the Organic Chemistry bulletin board (outside my office, Room 170). (In accordance with the BMC Honor Code, please promptly return all reserve materials.)|
|6||In accordance with the BMC Honor Code, all laboratory reports must be written independently. While you are encouraged to ask for basic guidance from your instructors and peers, group work while writing the reports or study of "old" lab reports is not acceptable.|
|7||Similar rules as above apply to taking laboratory
exams. Exams must be taken independently, without consulting peers or course
Exams may not be taken earlier than the dates scheduled.
Possession of "old" exams or tests other than those provided by the instructor is unacceptable. Likewise, it is not acceptable to obtain information about past exams.
