Technicalities 1
Technicalities(1)

  • Requirements:

    • CHEM 4511 or 4411

    • PHYS 1120 or 2020

    • recommended: firm grasp of algebra, complex numbers, calculus, differential equations

  • Class hours:

  • MWF 09:00 am to 09:50 am

  • Office Hours:M: 5 pm – 6 pmTF: 10:30 am – 11:30 am


Technicalities(2)

  • Locations:

    • JILA tower A709

    • phone 492-7841

    • email [email protected]

    • web site: http://jila.colorado.edu/weberlabs/course-CHEM4531.html

  • Exam schedule:

    • Two-hour exams: February 10, March 10, April 14 5-7 pm OR 6-8 pm, locations TBA

    • Final Exam: date, time, and location TBA


Technicalities(3)

  • Problem sets (homework):

    • usually handed out (i.e. posted on course web site) on Wednesdays, to be returned the following Wednesdays before class

    • homework will be graded by graduate student TA (TBN)

    • credits accumulated over the semester determine your homework performance grade. Everyone may drop one homework assignment without penalty.

  • Travel: Due to conference travel, I will not give lectures on Feb. 2 and Feb 28. Another instructor may give the lectures in my stead. As the 2-hr exams are held outside of class hours, some class hours may be cancelled. At this time it is likely that there will be no lectures on Feb. 1, 28


Technicalities(4)

  • Additional lectures (voluntary):Cover some material in more depth, review some math and physics, do some computer experiments to enhance learning. Some Thursdays 6 pm – 7 pm, will be announced

  • Final grades:

    • homework performance: 40%

    • clicker questions (participation) 5%

    • average of the two-hour-exams: 30%

    • final exam: 25%


Technicalities(5)

  • Textbooks:Required: Donald A. McQuarrie “ Physical Chemistry”Please note that reading material will be part of homework and relevant for exams.Optional: James R. Barrante “Applied Mathematics for Physical Chemistry”

  • Science Education ResearchHow do people learn quantum mechanics? Program funded by the National Science Foundation Graduate student researcher in charge: Marta Maron Your cooperation will help future generation of students I will not see individual results from your input, only class average


  • Clicker Questions and PowerPoint Slides will be put on the course web site!

  • Homework Assignments This Week
