RECITATIONS
Recitation attendance is not mandatory and will not be recorded. There is NO grade associated with
the recitation.
Each week in recitation, the homework assignments specified on the MasteringChemistry website will
be discussed. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions about these exercises and also the
relevant text and lecture material. Recitations are designed to help you learn the material and answer
particular questions that you may have. They are run as question and answer sessions and are in no way
intended to replace the regular lecture. However, I suggest that you attend the recitations to enhance
your learning.
Please note that the assigned homework is NOT due in recitation. All homework must be performed
and submitted on the MasteringChemistry website. See the MasteringChemistry website for specific due
dates and times. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Teaching Assistants (TAs) for the CHE 106 course (recitation instructors)
Elan Hofman [email protected]syr.edu
Alec Beaton aabeat[email protected]yr.edu
TA office hours will be held in Room 202 of the Life Science Building (LSB). A schedule of office hours
will be posted on the door of Room 202. Students are free to seek help from ANY of the CHE 106 TAs
that are teaching this semester, not just the TA that is in charge of their particular recitation section.
NOTE: The CHE 106 (General Chemistry I Lecture) Instructor and TAs have NO connection to the CHE
107 (General Chemistry Laboratory) course in any way. CHE 107 is taught and graded totally separately
from CHE 106. If you have questions regarding CHE 107, you must contact the CHE 107 Instructor or
TAs.
RECITATION & HOMEWORK SCHEDULE
The following is an APPROXIMATE schedule of material that will be discussed in the recitations and
the homework that is due on the MasteringChemistry website organized by week. ALL homework is to
be done and turned in on the MasteringChemistry website. No exceptions. The textbook contains the
answers to some of the odd-numbered problems at the end of each chapter. If you are having difficulty,
refer to the Student Guide included in your textbook package to support your learning.
Several copies of the Student Guide are held on reserve in the Carnegie Library. The TA office hours
in LSB 202 are also an excellent resource.
The MasteringChemistry tutorials are MANDATORY and they are graded. It is highly recommended
that you complete the Tutorial for a chapter BEFORE attempting the Homework for that chapter since
the Tutorials are designed to help prepare you for the Homework problems.
NOTE: It is strongly suggested that you complete your homework BEFORE the listed deadlines. Do not
procrastinate.
NOTE: Turning in your homework late, is better than not turning it in at all.
NOTE: Notice that during exam weeks, some of the homework that will be included in the exam subject
matter may be due AFTER the exam date. Despite the homework due date, you are still responsible
for that material on the exam.
GROUP TUTORING
The SU Center for Learning and Student Success (CLASS) will offer free group tutoring for CHE 106.
The schedule will be announced. Students can signup for these free group sessions (6 to 10 students)
directly online by going to: http://class.syr.edu/tutoring/get-a-tutor/.

COURSE POLICIES
Grading policy
Exams will cover both material covered in lecture and the assigned text readings. Some questions may come
from lecture (not covered in text) and others from the text (not covered in lecture). The majority of questions
will be problems similar to the assigned homework and tutorial exercises. Lots of practice with problems is the
key to success in this course. Each exam will focus on specific chapters as noted in the syllabus and in the
lecture notes.
Exams are given during the regular class period, with the exception of the OPTIONAL cumulative exam.
First Exam Monday, September 24
Second Exam Monday, October 22
Third Exam Friday, November 9
Fourth Exam Wednesday, December 5
*OPTIONAL* Cumulative Exam Friday, December 14 from 10:15 AM12:15 PM
>>>>>> MAKE YOUR TRAVEL PLANS NOW! <<<<<<
NO ACCOMMODATIONS FOR STUDENT TRAVEL/EXAM CONFLICTS WILL BE MADE.
What is the Optional Cumulative Exam?
The exam scheduled for December 11 is a completely optional exam that students may choose to take to replace
the lowest score they have received on any of the regular in-class exams taken during the semester. For example,
a student scores 16, 6, 15, and 17 on the in-class exams, and chooses to take the cumulative exam. They score
a 12 on the cumulative exam, which then replaces the 6 grade they scored on Exam #2. There is no penalty for
receiving a low score on the cumulative exam. Warning: The cumulative exam will be more difficult than a
regular in-class exam.
Final Grade Determination
Course grades are based on the exams and the on-line homework. The grading scale shown below is based on
historical class averages and grade distributions for the first-semester general chemistry course. Additional
“curving” of the class grades will normally NOT be applied, but Professor Zheng reserves the right to do so in
extraordinary cases. In such a case, scores will only be curved up (not down) and therefore will never negatively
impact your letter grade.
The final grade will be computed using the following items and weightings:
Four, In-Class Exams (20% each) 80
MasteringChemistry Online Homework 20
Course Total: 100
The equation to calculate your overall course raw score is:
Overall grade = (Exam #120% + (Exam #220% + (Exam #3)×20% + (Exam #4)×20% + (Homework)×20%
Bonus points: up to 2 bonus points from quizzes in optional recitation sessions and 1 bonus point for
attending 10+ sessions at CHE 106 group tutoring sessions.
Letter grade ranges based upon raw score:
A- = 88-89 A = ≥90
B- = 75-79 B = 80-84 B+ = 85-87
C- = 60-64 C = 65-69 C+ = 70-74
D = 50-59
F = <50

Attendance
Attendance is not recorded in lecture. However, there is a very strong correlation with good attendance and good grades,
so it is in your own best interest to attend lectures regularly. Medical absences will be excused based on written advice
from the Health Center or a health-care provider (based upon clinical findings and prescribed treatment
recommendations). See: http://health.syr.edu/students/policies.html. NO VERBAL EXCUSES WILL BE
ACCEPTED. The medical document must specifically indicate that you were unable to attend class/recitation. All such
absences will be verified by Chemistry Department staff.
THERE WILL BE NO MAKEUP EXAMINATIONS EXCEPT IN THE CASE OF ADVANCE-NOTICE
APPROVED ABSENCES. ALL ADVANCED-NOTICE APPROVALS WILL RESULT IN AN OPPORTUNITY
TO TAKE THE EXAM IN ADVANCE, NOT AFTER THE REGULARLY SCHEDULED EXAM TIME.
Accommodations for Students with Disabilities
If you believe that you need accommodations for a disability, please contact the Office of Disability Services (ODS), visit
the ODS websitehttp://disabilityservices.syr.edu, located in Room 309 of 804 University Avenue, or call (315) 443-
4498 or TDD: (315) 443-1371 for an appointment to discuss your needs and the process for requesting accommodations.
ODS is responsible for coordinating disability-related accommodations and will issue students with documented
Disabilities Accommodation Authorization Letters, as appropriate. Since accommodations may require early planning
and generally are not provided retroactively, please contact ODS as soon as possible. For more information,
see: http://disabilityservices.syr.edu/services-accommodations/
Academic Integrity
Complete academic honesty is expected of all students. Any incidence of academic dishonesty, as defined by the Syracuse
University Academic Integrity Policy (http://academicintegrity.syr.edu), will result in both course sanctions and formal
notification of the College of Arts & Sciences. In this course, students are allowed and strongly encouraged to study
together, but exams and online problem sets must represent the work of the individual student. Online problem sets must
be completed by each student using his or her own access account, though reference to the text and lecture notes is
allowed.
Syracuse University’s Academic Integrity Policy reflects the high value that we, as a university community, place on
honesty in academic work. The policy defines our expectations for academic honesty and holds students accountable for
the integrity of all work they submit. Students should understand that it is their responsibility to learn about course-
specific expectations, as well as about university-wide academic integrity expectations. The policy governs appropriate
citation and use of sources, the integrity of work submitted in exams and assignments, and the veracity of signatures on
attendance sheets and other verification of participation in class activities. The policy also prohibits students from
submitting the same work in more than one class without receiving written authorization in advance from both instructors.
Under the policy, students found in violation are subject to grade sanctions determined by the course instructor and non-
grade sanctions determined by the School or College where the course is offered as described in the Violation and Sanction
Classification Rubric. Syracuse University students are required to read an online summary of the University’s academic
integrity expectations and provide an electronic signature agreeing to abide by them twice a year during pre-term check-
in on MySlice.
The Violation and Sanction Classification Rubric establishes recommended guidelines for the determination of grade
penalties by faculty and instructors, while also giving them discretion to select the grade penalty they believe most suitable,
including course failure, regardless of violation level. Any established violation in this course may result in course failure
regardless of violation level.
Religious Observances
SU’s religious observances policy is available at http://supolicies.syr.edu/emp_ben/religious_observance.htm
Syracuse University recognizes the diversity of faiths represented among the campus community and protects the right
of students, faculty, and staff to observe the holy days according to their tradition. Under the policy, students are provided
an opportunity to make up any examination, study, or work requirements that may be missed due to a religious
observanceprovided they notify their instructors before the end of the second week of classes. Students have access to
an online notification form through MySlice that they can use to notify their instructors.
