Jim McGill Rhodes Hall 201B 651-2347 [email protected] M W F 10:00 – 11:00 am or by appointment M W F 11:00 – 11:50 am in Johnson Hall 200 http://cstl-csm.semo.edu/mcgill/Spring/2013/CH343 Course Description A continuation of Foundations of Organic Chemistry focusing on synthesis, mechanisms of reactions, and spectroscopy of organic molecules. Three lecture hours. Pre or Co-requisite: CH 342. II. Required Materials Text: Organic Chemistry, Seventh Edition by L.G. Wade, Jr. III. Course Policies I expect you to have a working knowledge of those concepts and topics from both General Chemistry and Foundations of Organic Chemistry that are relevant to Advanced Organic Chemistry. I expect you to attend all lecture sessions and complete all assigned readings prior to the corresponding lecture. I expect you to complete all assigned homework problem sets by the announced due dates. Homework will be administered using the Sapling Learning online homework system, to which you must subscribe for a fee of $30 per semester. I expect you to ask me, a classmate, a tutor, or somebody for help when you do not understand a topic or a problem. I expect you to try your best to learn organic chemistry, and I promise I will try my best to help you learn organic chemistry and to get the most out of this class that you can in terms of knowledge and understanding, preparation for your future, and your grade. I require that you adhere to the University’s policies on academic honesty. As college students and responsible members of society it is imperative that you maintain your integrity at all times. This is all the more true for individuals who aspire to enter the fields of science or medicine. Absolute integrity is essential to the functioning of the professional community. I will defer to the official University policies on academic honesty found in the Undergraduate Bulletin and the Student Code of Conduct. Any students found in violation of any of these policies will be afforded due process but will be dealt with to the fullest extent allowable under said policies. IV.
