General Chemistry and Qualitative Analysis II (423071)

My name is John Taylor. I want to welcome you to our CHM 2046C class.

I will be your instructor for this class which meets:
Section #423071
NORTH CAMPUS D0207 2:15-5:00 P.M. Tuesday  -  Lecture
NORTH CAMPUS D0204 2:15-5:00 P.M. Thursday - Lab (Start some days in D207)
NORTH CAMPUS Online      Internet                 Internet   - Online

Please be advised that when you print off your schedule from some of the FSCJ web sites, the second line of the scheduled class sometimes does not print, which is our lecture class. The third line TBA is for the online work required in the course

For this class, we begin next Tuesday June 2nd at 5:30 pm in D-207 lecture room. I will distribute the new syllabus, course grading outline (Road map), Module 4iii Homework Packet; Module 16 Homework Packet; Module 7ii Homework Packet, Module 8ii Homework Packet, Lab Rules/Schedule Tuesday and then I will begin lecture with our first chapters in the outline, Chapters 8, 9, 22 (Modules 4iii and 16).

We will not normally take break in lecture nor in lab on Tuesdays.

I have been with FSCJ since the Fall of 2006 and have had many additional years of teaching this course at four previous colleges. This course assumes you have had chemistry either in high school and/or CHM 1025C and have completed the prerequisite CHM 2045C successfully with a grade of C or better.

Our 2046 class is the second semester of General College Chemistry. This course assumes you are either science, medical or engineering majors, which requires you to complete at least this CHM 2045C and CHM 2046C sequence to full fill your degree requirements.

My email address is:

Your assignments and homework in Wiley Pus are located in Blackboard. Everyone who has paid has access to our course's Blackboard web site. In addition to posting announcements, emails, and your grades on Blackboard, a lot of my course materials are located on an independent web site outside of the college. The home page for my overall web site is:

I personally own the domain as well as:;;; and . Typing any of those domain names will bring up the same general home page. On this home page are many links for you to discover who your instructor is. If you dig hard enough, you can find my copies of all my college transcripts.

For our course, the URL for our course home page is:

(I have not updated our course home page with the new Summer 2015 syllabus and grading outline, but should have them in place by the first night of class).

For now, again I want to welcome you to this class and look forward to meeting each member of my new CHM 2046C chemistry team on Tuesdays and Thursdays this summer.

Summer Term 2015 CHM 2046C Lab Rules:

  1. Each student must have the required Laboratory Notebook prior to the second scheduled lab class (1/20). Instructions on using a laboratory notebook are in the Appendix of the Lab Manual. Student will be provided weekly handouts for the lab experiments.
  2. During the first scheduled lab class in D-204, the following will be covered
    1. Students* will sign the master laboratory attendance form and this form will be given to North Campus Lab Manager
    2. Students* will sign and give the instructor one copy of the individual laboratory contract to verify attendance the first day of schedule lab and keep a second copy to make a similar copy on the first page of the student laboratory notebook.
    3. The ACS Laboratory Safety film may be shown or provide a DVD copy for student to view at home. Students will take notes and copy these notes into the laboratory notebook on page 2 before the third meeting on the lab class. An Outline of the film may be provided to aid the note taking.


  3. There is no makeup for missing a scheduled lab (unless the student can show registration into the course after the first lab meeting). (The student is allow one and only missed lab except the first lab on safety during the term). Those attending all will earn a bonus 30-40 lab points for that week.


  4. Students receive an automatic zero for not attending and completing the scheduled lab (except the first lab on safety) or if they have not prepared the proper prelab assignment.


  5. All students will prepare as directed by a policy handout the first week of lab, a prelab report. This prelab report must have the following sections:

          a. Goals/Objectives (written in lab notebook)

          b. Procedures (written in lab notebook)

          c. Lab data sheets must be copied into the lab notebook for the scheduled lab.

          d. attach completed Pre-laboratory Assignment from Lab Manual if provided


     6. No data may be written on the data tear out pages in the lab manual during the lab (unless instructed to do so). All data must be recorded directly into the lab notebook with a ball point pen, pressing hard to make a clear copy underneath (do not forget to place the heavy periodic chart between the lab notebook pages).

  1. Neatness counts. Procedures that are not readable may be rejected by the lab instructor. During the first 15 minutes of lab, the student will turn in the copy of Part A: Goals/Objectives, Part B: Procedures, and Part D Pre-laboratory Assignment. Each page should have the student’s name. Please staple all these pages together in order.


  2. Students not having a prepared prelab report in their lab notebook after the first lab may be sent home by the instructor and receive a zero for that lab.


  3. During the first 15 minutes, the student will sign into lab by signing the Prelab attendance form and submit the prelab copies under the roll sheet. After the first week, the student will sign a second attendance roll and submit the post lab report from the previous week including filling out the Post Laboratory Assignment.


  4. Students who do not have a lab manual of copy of the experiment will not be allowed to work in the lab and receive a zero for the scheduled lab (except the first week). (The instructor will lend students waiting for financial aid or who have a severe hard ship may be loaned one of the extra lab manuals the professor has.)


  5. The external lab doors may be shut 15-20 minutes after the lab begins. No student will be allowed to work in the lab if they arrive over 20 minutes late. If the rolls are not signed the student will receive no credit for the lab that day (0/30-40)


  6. Students will work only in pairs, 12 setups; sometimes groups of four (6 setups). Students will be assigned to a work space by the third lab and by then will have selected a lab partner. Odd students will work alone if a partner doesn't show.


  7. Student will copy the lab data directing into the lab notebook data pages and submit the copies of each data page used in the lab notebook by signing a third roll sheet when they are leaving the lab. The time of checkout should also be noted. The student will submit before she/he leaves the copy of the lab data page from the notebook. During the next week the student will copy neatly from his/her data from the notebook on to the original data page from the lab manual. The original data page from the Lab manual will be the cover sheet(s) for the lab report and submitted during the first 10 minutes of the following week’s lab.


  8. Your instructor may modified any of the above instructions during the lab or in an email before or after the lab has been performed.


  9. For the first absence from lab, a student will be able to complete an outside the class assignment/project as directed by the faculty member to makeup the work missed.


  10. For a second absence from the lab, the instructor may or may not allow the student a second makeup project. A third makeup is out of the question. However, student with perfect attendance in lab, will be allowed to do one of the optional makeup projects for bonus credit.

Professor: __John T. Taylor____


I, ____________________________, have watched the ACS Laboratory Safety Film. I have read the assigned sets of Safety Rules provided by my instructor. I have synthesized from these rules and the safety film a list of at least 20 rules written in this Laboratory Notebook which I agree to abide during all formal laboratory activities and experiences in FSCJ North Campus’s D-204 Chemistry Lab. I agree to wear proper safety glass at all times during lab activity, regardless if I, myself, am not currently performing any activity. I agree to lose points on my current lab if I am not wearing these safety glasses. I understand that protective aprons and gloves are my option to provide and use during formal lab activity. I have sketched in this laboratory notebook, the layout of the North Campus Chemistry Lab D-204 and have noted the placement of all safety features, equipment and supplies in this Post Lab Safety Report.

Final Grade based on Total Point Acheived!

Each grade assignment, quiz, project, exam, and final exam has an assigned various Point Values . Your grade is based on the accumulated grand total points:
Grade Points
A 88%-100% of Total Possible Points
B 76%-87% of Total Possible Points
C 60%-75% of Total Possible Points
D 50%-59% of Total Possible Points
F Less than 50% of the Total Possible points

Final Exam Challenge

All students must take the comprehensive 100 question Paper and Pencil Early Final Exam on July 30th and the Scheduled Final on August 20th. If the final exam grade is better than the grade earned through total points, the final Exam grade may be used to assign the final letter grade, as long as the student attended and completed at least 70% of the scheduled labs. Students who take both the early Final and the scheduled Final will use the highest grade to be included in the total point calculation. If the final exam grade is lower than the total point lab, then the raw score will be multiplied by two for up to 200 points entered toward the grand total points.

You may repeat a course in an attempt to improve a grade previously earned. However, you are limited in your attempts to courses where a “D,” “F,” or “FN” grade was earned. You have only three total attempts in any course, including the original grade, repeat grades, and withdrawals. Upon the third attempt in a course, you must be given an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D” or “F”.

When you repeat a course at Florida State College, only the last grade earned is calculated in your cumulative grade point average (GPA). If you have an excessive number of “W” or “FN” grades and repeat courses to improve your GPA, you may jeopardize your admission to programs in the Florida State University System (SUS) or other institutions.

Recommendations for Success in this course


Chemistry is a cumulative subject.

You are expected to do between 12-20 hours a week outside of class time studying and completing both online and paper and pencil assignments.

Concepts learned in the first chapter may be applied in the second, etc.

The final exam is cumulative.

 In order to do well in this course, it is essential to study and work problems from the textbook and study guide.

The following is a list of study suggestions

  1. Read the text chapters before the material is covered in class. At least power read the material
  2. Take good notes and review them daily. Within 24 hours of taking your notes, rewrite them in a neat format/notebook.
  3. Work all assigned homework problems at the end of the assigned chapters as outlined in the homework packets.
  4. Do not get behind!!!!!!
  5. Work the Wiley Plus assignments and assessments (Orion),
  6. Work practice exams (Homework Packets) that are distributed hard copy and also available on the web site without looking at the answer key. Then check your answers clicking on the links in the Grading Outline (Road Map).
  7. Use the interactive web site and submit the online required homework.

Study Groups/Phone Network/Lab Partner:

         On the first day of class each student will complete a Data Card, Interview a peer, and introduce (if time permits) that peer to the class. From these exercises and the learning styles inventory, study groups, a phone network, and lab partners need to be established.

Study areas, as well as the classroom, should be used for study groups plus lunch/dinner and learn sessions.

Some portions of the office times may meet in the library computer learning lab or in the lecture classroom D-207.

Each week volunteers will be appreciated to assist in the group operation of the class. The first personal assistant volunteer will prepare a matrix with each student’s free study time so that study groups may begin to be formed the second week of school. An attendance monitor needs to volunteer if Attendance points are earned in the lecture and lab.
