  General Information and Listing of Experiments:  

The district course outline has the following lists of labs. We will do at least 10 “wet” or “hands-on” labs and no more than 15 total experiences from the list below. No lab manual has been selected, but weekly handouts will be distributed either in hard copy or as an electronic download.

   There are no make-ups for missed labs. Via Special permission a student who has to be absent may do the required week’s lab during one of the other scheduled lab sessions of either Professor Taylor or Professor Langat. Upon Special permission a student may be assigned to do an outside class library/research project to fulfill that week’s lab experience..

Sometimes the lab will be to show a couple of the films and write a paper analysis of the video during weeks of the term there is a school holiday. This final grade in the course will be adjusted to 20% of the total points in the final grade calculation.

Safety is our Number One Concern!


ll students must watch the ACS Laboratory Safety Film and Read a list of Safety Rules provided by the Instructor. All students must sign FCCJ North Campus Laboratyry Safety Agreement before any actual work may be complete in the Chemistry Lab: D-204. All students must keep a laboratory Notebook as dprescribed or required by the Instructor. The professor must choose any 4 of the below five experiment catagories to satisfy course requirements.

  1. Laboratory Safety, Introduction to Chemical Equipment, Maintenance of Laboratory Notebook (Week One)
  2. Measurements, Units, Significant Figures, Precision, Accuracy in Metric System (Week Three)
    Density (Week Four)
  3. Chemical Nomenclature (IUPAC) (In Lecture and Online)
  4. Graphical Analysis of Data (Week Five) Density

    DVD Cover to The Andromeda Strain Movie-Original 1971 Version During the Spring 2009 Term, Week Two has a Monday School Holiday, Martin Luther King Say. The students will watch the movie: 'The Andromedia Strain' during the lab time scheduled Tuesday through Friday. Monday Lab students will have optional times they may watch the film, or will check the film out to complete the project as described in the syllabus and on the Experiment Site of CHM 1025C. During the Fall Term 2009, the second week also has a Monday holiday: Labor Day, and that week's lab work will again be this film centered on the Controlled Experimental.
