topics include the behavior of acids and bases, precipitation reactions and electrochem- istry.
As in CHM 191 the course includes 3 lectures per week, 1 recitation section per week and 1 three-hour laboratory period per week. Success in CHM 192 requires that you attend and satisfy the requirements of all three aspects.
You will receive a separate syllabus for the laboratory portion of the course. The laboratory experiments are designed to illustrate the principles learned in the lec- ture/recitation parts of the course.
The lecture and recitation section portions of the course are closely coupled. The recitation section has two purposes. First, with two exceptions, each recitation section will begin with a 15 minute quiz covering the material from the previous week. For those recitation periods having a quiz, after completing the quiz and reviewing the quiz solution, the remainder of the recitation section will be used to solve problems that illustrate the principles of the course.
Success in CHM 192 requires constant practice in solving problems. To help with such practice, problems sets are to be posted on the CHM 192 web page each week. The problem sets will not be collected and graded, but the problem sets are most helpful if they are treated as if they are to be collected and graded. After a portion of time solutions to the problems sets will also be posted. You are encouraged to try to solve the problems by yourselves before examining the solved problems. Keep in mind that it is far easier to understand a solution to a problem than it is to solve the problem on your own. You will need to solve the problems on your own when taking quizzes and exams.
9. The CHM 192 Web page:
In this course all problem sets, problem set solutions, quiz solutions and exam solutions are to be posted on the course web page. No paper copies of the problem sets are to be distributed. The URL of our course web page is http://www.chm.uri.edu/courses/?chm192&1 . It is strongly suggested that you link to our web page to obtain the first problem set as soon as possible.
It is expected that for most of you, success in this course will require some level of help beyond classroom instruction. Because some of you may find it difficult to come to the scheduled office hours, we have installed as part of our course web pages, a page that can be used to submit questions. Questions are submitted by anyone in the class by filling out a form on the web page, and answers are distributed either to the entire class or only to the person asking the question. If the entire class is to receive a copy of the question and answer, the question is treated as anonymous; i.e. the person who asks the question is never identified. In fact, it is possible to submit a question so that even the instructor does not know who submitted the question. Anonymous questions and responses by the instructor are distributed automatically to everyone who has submitted their e-mail address to the instructor. With ordinary electronic mail, there
