Lecture Notes: The lecture notes are available on-line, arranged via lecture topic, at:
http://chemistry.gravitywaves.com. It is suggested that you bring a printed copy of the
lecture notes printed in slide format six to a page with you to class to facilitate learning.
Examination questions will be derived from lecture material and homework, i.e. class
attendance is essential to do well in this course.
4.
Examinations: There will be four examinations (see syllabus for specific dates) each
worth 100 points. Absolutely NO make-up exams will be given.
5.
Final Exam: The final exam (100 pts), which will be comprehensive, is on Friday, July
6th, 10:00-12:15 PM.
6.
Homework: Daily homework will be assigned. Given the array of unfamiliar material
and the speed with which we cover the material doing the assigned homework problems
is required to succeed in the course.
7.
The Goal of this course is to understand the chemistry of aliphatic and aromatic systems.
8.
Grading Criteria: Letter grades will be assigned on the following basis. Grades are not
curved.

Academic Integrity Statement: A university is a community of learners bonded
together by the search for knowledge; the pursuit of personal, social, cultural, physical,
and intellectual development; and the desire for the liberating effects of an advanced
education. California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) has a culture--an
academic culture--shared with other universities and colleges across the nation. Integral
to that culture is a set of values such as academic freedom, dedication to teaching and
learning,
diversity, civility toward others, and academic integrity. Academic
integrity is of central importance in the university community and involves committed
allegiance to the values, the principles, and the code of behavior held to be central in that
community. Integrity concerns honesty and implies being truthful, fair, and free from
lies, fraud and deceit.
