|Chemistry 125 - Fall 2000
Structural Chemistry and Equilibrium
Each examination is announced in the class and lab calendar. They are taken under the honor system, and a pledge is provided with each. Typically the exams will be a blend of material from all of the course activities for that exam period. For example, an exam can be composed of problems adapted from those assigned in the textbook, original problems that have not been covered in the book per se, and interpretation of current lab results according to the material being studied in the classroom.
Examinations will not be made up if missed, unless due to circumstances beyond your control. If problems arise due to circumstances beyond your control, you must contact me prior to the exam. You can call my office, or home. If neither of those work, please contact the Department office at x3104 or the Dean of Students office at x3615.
This semester you may use a TI-86 programmable calculator on the examinations and quizzes. Equations and formulas may be programmed into the calculator before the exam, and used during the exam,without violating the honor code. Programs may be shared before the exam, but not during it. Other calculators are not prohibited, but they are not recommended.
The final examination will be a set of problems in which a majority will be taken directly from your book, from the problem sets that you have been doing, and from the laboratory. These will be edited to fit into a two hour time frame. Some of the numerical values may be changed, but the problems will reflect what you have been working on all semester. The exam will be taken individually, under the St. Olaf honor system. Programmable, and pre-programmed calculators, such as the TI-86, may be used on the final examination. Our final exam time, as published in the current class and lab schedule, is slated for Friday, December 15 at 2:30.
