Objectives for the Course

1) Skills relating to learning chemistry: Making chemistry real by illustrating ideas and concepts, exposing theoretical ideas

    to empirical teaching and teaching new chemistry.

2) Practical skills: Handling equipment and chemicals, learning safe scientific practices, masteringspecific techniques, measuring

  accurately, and observing carefully.

3) Scientific skills: Learning the skills of observation and the skills of deduction and interpretation. Appreciation of the place

of the empirical as a source of evidence in inquiry. Learning how to devise experiments that offer insights into chemical phenomena.

4) General skills: Numerous useful skills to be developed such as team working, reporting, presenting, discussing, time management,

and problemsolving skills.

 

Course Requirement

    1) Preparation in advance for experimental work

       (a) Pre-laboratory reading preparation for successful experiment

       (b) "Pre-lab"quizzes are or pre-lab reports are required relating to the experimental details.

 

    2) Wearing of eye protection and lab clothing at all times while in the laboratory.

       

    3) Writing up and submission of lab reports. Includes the following (but see evaluation)

        (a) Observations and experimental detail

        (b) Detailed method of processing the experimental data

            ( for Quantitative analytical experiment)

        (c) Calculations and Conclusions regarding the accuracy and the precision of experimental  

             results and errors and the inherent errors based on the measurements

Methods of Evaluation

The student will be evaluated based on his/her performance of the requirement listed below.

 

 Point distribution per One Experiment = 15 pts

 

          1) Pre- laboratory Interview  (0 points)

            - Before starting experiments, everyone has to answer for questions by TA.

            - The questions about theoretical background, procedure, and safety.

            - One has to pass the interview to initiate experiments.

            

          2) Attitude (5 points)

            (a) Lateness (-2 pts)

            (b) Lab Safety  (-3 pts)

            (c) Cleanliness (-2 pts)

            (d) Concentration  (-2 pts)           

 

           3) Post-Laboratory Reports (10 points)

             (a) Data & Results (6 pts)

               - Lab note (3 pts)

               - Quantitative results: Data & Calculation, Table & Graphs (3 pts)

             (b) Discussion  (4 pts)  

                -Assessing the results

                -Conclusions

 

                     Final Presentation (25 pts, 15 min per group)

                                 - Topic will be chosen randomly two weeks before the presentation.

 

 

Lab Report Submission
