These objectives will be assessed by exam questions, terminology, study area quiz, assignment from mastering chemistry and written laboratory report. It is encouraged to start your weekly activities by understanding “terminology’, which will be followed by reading corresponding units in the textbook. You will continue working on “Study Area” quiz and Review Questions, and homework assignments from mastering chemistry. Finally, you will perform the lab experiments. These steps are written in order under “Things to do” in all the weekly activities.
EVALUATION PROCEDURE: 1. Lab Grades: This online course of Chem. 1405 uses the “Wet Lab” experiences from Hands-on lab, Inc. For the first five labs, students use the basic laboratory conceptual practice using Pearson published laboratory manual. After completion of five labs from Pearson published lab manual, students will use their purchased lab kits for the “Wet Lab” experiences and perform real chemical experiments using chemicals and standard techniques, in the convenience of their house.
To ensure the credibility of the lab portion of this course, students will be asked to submit their picture showing their face at one or two specific steps of each experiment along with the data as reflected in their report. The specific steps where they need to submit their picture are well- written in the attached report form in the corresponding experiment on campus. Lab grades will be earned from their completed lab reports. These reports have to be hyped in Microsoft office word and upload on campus in order to be graded, unless otherwise specified (Hand Written lab Report Will not be Accepted).

Children on Campus The institution strives to protect an environment most conducive to teaching and learning for all enrolled students. Children who are taking part in organized scheduled activities or who are enrolled in specific classes are welcomed. Minor children, however, should not be brought to the institution unless closely supervised by their parent.
Minor children should not be brought into classrooms, laboratories or other facilities of the college. This practice is disruptive to the learning process. In the case of an emergency where the student-parent has no alternative but to bring the child to campus, classroom faculty or the administrative heads of other units have full discretion as to whether a child may be allowed to quietly stay in the action. These individuals may require that children be removed by the student- parent from the setting if, in their opinion, the presence of the child is deemed to be disruptive to the learning process.
For reasons of security and child welfare the institution will not permit unattended children to be left anywhere on the premises. Parents who have problems with childcare should visit the Counseling and/or Advisement Center to receive referrals to childcare services in the area.
