composite lecture/lab final grade. The lecture grade will constitute the other 70%.
||Supplemental materials such as exam answers, practice
problems and spectra can be found on this web site and/or will in the Collier Science Library.
The Organic Chemistry bulletin board (outside my office, Room 170) is also a frequent source of information.
(In accordance with the BMC Honor Code, please promptly return all reserve materials.)
||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.
||Similar rules as above apply to taking laboratory
exams. Exams must be taken independently, without consulting peers or course
materials. Possession of "old" exams
other than those provided by the instructor is unacceptable.
||Lab will only run until 5:15 pm for
experimental work and 5:30 pm for cleanup. If you need extra time you may
come back on another afternoon.
||Laboratory work is not permitted on the weekends.
||Beyond the free extension given in the lab manual, all
other extensions require the joint approval of a dean and Dr. Nerz-Stormes.
