Course Description:

    Number and Title:

CHEM 2412(CRN 20358)
Organic Chemistry II

    Credit Hours:

3.0 semester credit hours

    Course Description:

A continuation of Chemistry 2411 to include the study of the common classes of carbon compounds, including their physical and chemical properties, methods of preparation, and reactions utilizing modern theories of electronic structure and reaction mechanisms.

    Course Prerequisite:

CHEM 2411 and CHEM 2411L with a grade of C or better.

    Course Co-requisite:

Co-requisite: CHEM 2412L.

Note: Due to the co-requisite nature of CHEM 2412 and CHEM 2412L, students dropping one of the two courses must also drop the other.

Notebook Computer Requirement:

Each CCSU student is required to have ready access throughout the semester to a notebook computer that meets faculty-approved hardware and software requirements for the student's academic program. Students will sign a statement attesting to such access.  For further information on CSU's Official Notebook Computer Policy, please go to http://itpchoice.clayton.edu/policy.htm.

Computer Skill Prerequisites:

In-class Use of Student Notebook Computers:

Student notebook computers will not be used in the classroom in this course. Computers will be required to access course materials and to communicate with your instructor.

Last day to withdraw with academic penalty March 6th

Course Policies:

Homework:

This course demands and expects approximately two hours of work per night. Reading assignments are tentatively made on this syllabus. The student is expected to complete all chapter problems upon completion of each topic in class. However, these will not be collected or graded. Completion of homework is your responsibility. Supplementary problems will also be assigned.

Attendance:

Class roll will be taken, however, attendance is not required except for classroom assessments. You are responsible for all attendance requirements for external programs (i.e. financial aid). It is your responsibility to sign the roll sheet at every class meeting you attend. This roll sheet is the instructor's official record. You will be held responsible for all announcements and material covered in lecture in addition to text, references, hand-outs and study guides.  Note: Lectures will contain valuable explanations of content and thought processes which are difficult for most students to extract from the text book on their own. Therefore, regular attendance is strongly encouraged.

Academic Irregularity:

Cheating in any form will not be tolerated. Consequences may include a zero grade on the assessment instrument, or possible action by the College Judicial Board of Review.

Assessments:

There will be three (3) classroom assessments and one 2-hour final (comprehensive). The assessments will be announced approximately one week in advance whenever possible and attendance is mandatory.  If a student has an excused absence on an exam day, the student's final exam percentage score will be used in place of the missed exam score.  No make-up exams will be given.

Grades will not be communicated via email or telephone.  Exams will be handed back in the next lecture period after an exam.  If absent, a student must come by during office hours to retrieve their exam.  Final exam papers may be viewed the following semester during office hours.

Disruption of the Learning Environment:

Behavior which disrupts the teaching–learning process during class activities will not tolerated.  While a variety of behaviors can be disruptive in a classroom setting, more serious examples include belligerent, abusive, profane, and/or threatening behavior.  A student who fails to respond to reasonable faculty direction regarding classroom behavior and/or behavior while participating in classroom activities may be dismissed from class.  A student who is dismissed is entitled to due process and will be afforded such rights as soon as possible following dismissal.  If found in violation, a student may be administratively withdrawn and may receive a grade of WF. A more detailed description of examples of disruptive behavior and appeal procedures is provided at:  
http://a-s.clayton.edu/DisruptiveClassroomBehavior.htm

Other Class Policies:

"Students must abide by policies in the Clayton State University Student Handbook, and the Basic Undergraduate Student Responsibilities."
