Lab sections 2-7 are the ONLY labs associated with the TR 1:30pm lecture section. Lab sections 9-11 are the ONLY labs associated with the TR 9:00am lecture section. NO SWITCHING OF LAB SECTIONS IS PERMITTED.
Prerequisite: CHEM 1A with a passing grade of C (not
C-) or better. Note: This prerequisite for CHEM 1B is strictly enforced.
If you are enrolled or on the electronic waitlist, we have your transcripts
on file. If you are not enrolled and you are not on the electronic waitlist
and looking to “crash” the course, you will be required to provide a copy
of your transcript showing your grade in CHEM 1A to your laboratory instructor
during the first or second day of lab.
Textbook: Chemistry: A Molecular Approach, by Tro (3rd Edition
or 2nd “Custom” Edition) with Mastering Access Code for online homework. If
you had Dr. Mack last semester (Fall 2014) for Chem 1A, this is the same text
and you can use your Mastering Access code too. The Mastering Access code
is valid for 2 years.
Lab Manual: Chemistry 1B, General Chemistry: Laboratory Manual Spring
2015 (bookstore). You must have the Spring 2015 version of the lab manual.
* Laboratory notebook (Composition book).
* Safety goggles, approved type with side and top protection.
* Scientific calculator.
* Laboratory coat and gloves (available at bookstore).
* MS Word and Excel (or equivalent)
Adding? We will be adding according to the electronic wait list.
If you are not on the electronic waitlist, go to a lab section that fits
your schedule and put your name on the hardcopy waitlist that is passed out.
We will add (in lab) during the second and/or third lab periods.
Make sure you attend lab. We are going over Keeping a laboratory notebook and Writing Lab Reports. Please bring you 1B lab manual.
We will also have a diagnostic quiz the first day of lab. This diagnostic quiz will consist of 15 questions and will be review material from Chem 1A. Topics include nomenclature, writing reactions, net ionic equations, solution stoichiometry (molarity), recognizing strong/weak acids and bases and titrations, enthalpy, electron configurations and molecular structure (VSEPR, VB and MO), and oxidation-reduction reactions, kinetics, just to name a few. You can only take the diagnostic once.
Please bring scantron form 882-E, a pencil and a calculator.
There is no penalty if you fail the diagnostic. The diagnostic is for your benefit only. It allows you to assess whether you are ready for Chem 1B.
