You will need a laboratory notebook( available from the Stockroom), a copy of each week's experiment (available on this web site), and a pair of laboratory safety goggles ( available from the Bookstore). You cannot work in the lab without eye protection.
Schedule of Experiments:
The purpose of a lab notebook is to record four kinds of information that are needed if someone were to try and reproduce what you have done. They are:
Most of what goes into your notebook will be entered while you are in the lab. But dont be concerned about how beautiful it is. You will probably spill chemicals on some pages, and some will undoubtedly be messy. We are concerned only that the four areas of information be entered accurately and are complete. In addition, there must be a TABLE OF CONTENTS. Writing in pencil is not acceptable. Use ink and cross out for changes you make.
This course is graded with letter grades using the +/- option. You may elect the CR/NC option by notifying Dr. Perona (in writing) on or before the fourth class meeting.
You must do all of the experiments in order to receive a grade in the course.
The Department of Chemistry policy on lab reports will be used. There will be a 2 point penalty for a report that is late by one day. If a report is late by two to seven days the penalty is 5 points. After one week late the penalty will be 10 points.
The books listed below are on Reserve in the Library and may be helpful in selecting a topic for your project.
