Grading for the course will be split into three parts:

You may work together on homework assignments, but you must indicate on your paper with whom you worked and you must turn in separate assignments. Do not copy from one another but use your own words. That ancient Chinese proverb is applicable here as well.

Tentative Lecture Schedule:
Attendance in lecture is not mandatory;
however, you should attend lecture regularly. Remember, students who
attend lecture do better, on the average, than students who don't. Be
an active learner; ask questions and answer them. I won't always
lecture; some of the time you will spend discussing the assignments.
Part of your grade will depend on how much you participate in lecture
discussion. Attendance in laboratory is required and will count as
part of your grade.
Email and the Internet
Up-to-date information about the course and links to interesting Web sites will be posted on the Chem 430 Web site. You are expected to check this Web site and your email frequently (at least every other day).
