CHM 105/CHM106 General Chemistry I and II
This course is a study of the fundamental principles of chemistry. The course at WHS follows the curriculum at SUNY-Orange. All tests and labs are approved by the faculty at OCCC. Laboratory work is the application of studied principles with emphasis on quantitative relationships. The keeping of a laboratory notebook is stressed. Upon successful completion of the year long course, 8 OCCC Chemistry credits may be earned and transfered to any institution of higher learning.

Laboratory:Workbook: There is a workbook that contains all the labs and homework for the course that will be provided.
Labs must be made up within 3 days of an excused absence. Any labs missed that are not made up are graded as a zero. If you are late to lab, your lab grade will reflect your tardiness. If three labs are missed during the semester, it results in an automatic F for the class as the laboratory portion of the class has not been satisfied. Lab books are an important aspect of chemistry lab; therefore, if 3 or more labs are missing from the lab book it will also result in an F for the class. Please be on time to all labs as other students are counting on you for their lab groups.
Quizzes:Quizzes/Do Nows will be given during the first 5-10 minutes of class. Quizzes missed will be made up on the following class day in attendance with no extensions. Quizzes may be taken early. Quizzes will be based on problems from the workbook and homework and class lecture.
Homework/Workbook: There is a workbook that contains all the labs and homework for the course. A thorough understanding of this workbook will greatly aid in your understanding of the material covered in lecture and lab. This workbook is the primary source of material for all tests and quizzes.
