Program Objective

Appropriately apply presented concepts and chemical principles to chemistry related issues. (introduce)

In order to keep track off your grades, a Grade Performance Sheet is available.  Simply print off the form and fill it in with your grades or bring it to me (Dr. Draganjac), and I will give you your grades.  Keep in mind this is a generic form to be used with all of Draganjac's classes.   Federal Law prohibits discussion of your grade with anyone.  Also grades cannot be given by e-mail or over the phone.

*Graphing Calculators and cell phone calculators are not permitted in CHEM1003, CHEM1013 or CHEM1023.
A solar powered Texas Instrument Scientific Calculator (estimated cost: below $15) is recommended.  The simpler, the better.  You need one to do multiple roots, logs (base 10 and natural logs) and scientific notation.

Students are expected to know the compounds/ ions on the Cation/ Anion list.

Students who require academic adjustments in the classroom due to a disability must first register with ASU Disability Services.  Following registration and within the first two weeks of class, please contact me to discuss appropriate academic accommodation. Appropriate arrangements can be made to ensure equal access to this course.
