Lab Safety Education (5%)      

Every student must complete 6 hours of lab safety education before atteding your first laboratory session. The lab safety education videos can be assessed through the [KAIST Safety Portal] -> [Lab Safety Management System] -> [Lab Safety Education] -> [Online Education]. Please ensure that you select 6 videos from the Chemical Category. Once you have completed the lab safety education, please send your cetificate via email to the Chief TA, HoJin Hong, at inetsy01@kaist.ac.kr.

 

Pre-Lab Reports (20%)      

Download the lab manual from the website. Read the manual and answer the pre-lab questions.

Refer to references for answers to the pre-lab reports. Hand-writing only (typing is not acceptable)

Use your pre-lab report during the lab and SUBMIT to your TA when you leave the lab.

Your TA will inspect the cleanliness of your hood, bench, and glasswares. Only after the approval of

your TA, your pre-lab report will be accepted. Pre-lab reports that are not properly submitted won't be graded

and will get to credit.

     

Grading

 

A

~80% 이상이 Reasonable answer일 경우 

B

~60% 이상이 Reasonable answer일 경우 

C

~40% 이상이 Reasonable answer일 경우 

D

~40% 이하만이 Reasonable answer일 경우 

 

Experiments and Results PPT Files (30%)    

Follow the instructions of the manual.

Adhere to the safety rules.

During the course of experiments, take notes of experimental set up, observations, data etc.

You may take photo of experimental set ups and result.

After finishing the labwork, generate a PPT file (maximum 5 pages) that contains the experimental data.

Submission of a text light, scheme (Chemdraw, see below on how to install it) and photo heavy PPT file is encouraged.

That will make your life easier.

Submit your ppt file using turnitin before the next lab starts.

Mid-term and Final Papers (20%, 25% respectively)  

1. Online submission: www.turnitin.com

2. Create your account. Enter Class ID and Password (provided by TA).

3.  Use ACS style template from

       http://pubs.acs.org/paragonplus/submission/templates/acsPageWide-MSW2010.dotx

4. Enter your name in Korean (한글로 이름과 성 입력). English for foreign students.

5. Submission  due:  Mid-term paper: April 25, 10pm/ Final Paper. June 20, 10 pm.

6. For chemical drawing, use ChemBioDraw software.

7. Reports should contain general contents:introduction, data & results, actual experimental procedures, discussion, and references.

8. Post-lab questions should be included in the paper.

9. Plagiarism results in zero for all reports involved (Determined by Chief TA and Professor turnitin platform are very good at detecting similarity between reports. Copy and paste of published paper will also be detected in the turnitin platform. So don't do that !)

10. Late submission is not allowed in Turnitin website. You should send your lab report to Chief TA. The maximum score for the late report is B+.

Laboratory Makeup Policy     

_ Make-ups are only for those who missed labs for a legitimate reason and got permission to make up lab.

   (Give a writen documentation to Chief TA)

_ In any cases, contact Chief TA before your lab for permission.

_Missed labs without a valid excuse, shall count as zero (no credit for the prelab and experimental and results PPT) and  the studetn will not be allowed to make up this missed lab.

_ Students are not allowed to make up late Experimental and Results PPT or to make up more than two experiments during the scheduled lab make-up time. Re-doing labs is not possible.

_ Missed scheduled make-ups will be counted as zero and will not be rescheduled unless exceptional

  circumstances exist.

_If more than three labs are missed with or without valid excused student shall fail the course.

- Your lab TA will let you know the make-up schedule and the due dates for make-up reports.
