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.
