CATALOG DESCRIPTION
Designed for science and science-related majors, this course is a continuation of CHE1315. The
fundamental concepts introduced previously, together with additional ones, are applied to
solutions, colloids, chemical kinetics, chemical equilibria, electrochemistry, nuclear chemistry,
and organic chemistry. Qualitative inorganic analysis is included in the laboratory work.
Lecture: 4 hours
Laboratory: 2 hours
NEXT COURSE(S) IN SEQUENCE
General Chemistry II is the second of two courses that cover the fundamental concepts of
chemistry for science and science related majors. The next course is CHE2144-Organic
Chemistry I.
COURSE OBJECTIVES
Chemistry is divided between theoretical and practical knowledge. This course will deal with
the fundamental laws and theories governing the behavior of matter. The terminology and
vocabulary used by the chemist will be developed and applied.
The technique for solving quantitative problems relating to chemistry will be presented. An
objective of this class is to apply learned facts to a variety of chemistry problems.
During the laboratory sessions the student will have the opportunity to perform simple laboratory
procedures, which correspond directly with the chapters covered during lecture.
SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS
During the first laboratory session a list of safety rules will be presented and discussed. Strict
precautions and guidelines must be followed in the lab. Students must wear laboratory aprons
and approved safety goggles in the laboratory at all times. These are available for purchase at
the TCC bookstore or local vendors.
TEACHING METHODS
All lecture and laboratory material should be read prior to class presentation or laboratory
period. Problems from Mastering Chemistry will be assigned on a regular basis. They will
be due and graded throughout the course.
EVALUATION TECHNIQUES
LECTURE
Tests – Four (4), 100 points each
Quizzes and Homework – Ten (10), 15 points each
 Quizzes will be given, or homework taken up, at random. There will be more than ten
quizzes or homework assignments. The BEST TEN will be used for grading purposes.
 Quizzes cannot be made up.
Final One (1), 100 points
 Mandatory – No Make-ups
HOMEWORK
Specific homework problems from the text will be assigned throughout the course by means of
Mastering Chemistry. This will aid the student in obtaining a thorough understanding of the
material. It is essential these problems be worked when assigned. The assignments will be due
on specific dates throughout the course. It will be included as a part of your overall grade.
LABORATORY
Lab Reports – 30 Points each
 The ten best reports will be taken for the grade
 Laboratory work will be completed during the specified lab period.
 The completed report is due at the beginning of the following lab period.
 Late reports will not be accepted. If absent when report is due, hand in next
class period.
 Experiments cannot be made up. An absence during a lab period will result in
a forfeit of all points associated with that lab.
 Students must purchase and wear goggles and a lab apron during labs.
Students not wearing the above will not be allowed to participate in the
laboratory and will forfeit all points associated with the lab. If a student is
reminded on several occasions about their eye safety materials (e.g. goggles),
then points will be deducted from their lab report.

ATTENDANCE POLICY
Attendance is mandatory. Class participation and attendance will be included in the grading
procedure. Absences not only deprive you of opportunity to gain understanding of the subject
necessary to perform well in this class, but excessive absences can also reduce your participation
portion of the grade.
LATE ASSIGNMENTS AND MAKE-UP TEST POLICY
Makeup tests will be given if notification of absence is given the day before the exam.

A loss of 10% of the grade will be taken for the first make up exam

A loss of 20% will be taken for the second make up exam.
Laboratory experiments CANNOT be made up. Absence during lab period will result in
the forfeiture of ALL points associated with that lab.
The final exam cannot be made up.
STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT
All policies and procedures in The Student Code Handbook will be followed by the enrolled
student.
 Withdrawal from class is student’s responsibility
 No Phones or pagers allowed in the lecture
GENERAL EDUCATION GOAL STATEMENT
The General Education Goals are designed to ensure that graduates of Tulsa Community
College have the skills, knowledge, and attitudes to carry them successfully through their work
and their personal lives. General Education Goals relevant to this course include Critical
Thinking and Proficiency in Chemical Principals.
ADA POLICY
STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS: Students with documented disabilities are provided
academic accommodations through the disABLED Student Resource Center (918-595-7115) or
Resource Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (918-595-7428/TDD-TYY 918-595-7434). If
any student is in need of academic accommodations from either office, it is the student’s
responsibility to advise the instructor so an appropriate referral can be made no later than the first
week of class. Students may contact the disABLED Student Services Offices directly at the
