Summer ’17 content below. Winter content to be updated near the end of fall quarter.

CHEM 8M Syllabus & Schedule SS17

108M Sample Notebook           Sample Experimental Methods

Khan Academy NMR Tutorials (Playlist)

Lectures available via webcast.

DAY 1 – see also “Preparing for the First Day” tab above

Students are responsible for bringing the 8L intro packet to the first day of lab.  Be on-time (15+ min late = dropped from class) and dressed for lab, even though you will not be performing an experiment. You can get a head start on the writing activity, but the error and safety activities require you to be in the lab. If you have taken CHEM 8L (or 108L) in the past, you can bring the completed worksheets from that class, assuming you’ve held onto them! Parts D & E are new and will be provided in the lab.

8M Technical Writing – A-C – bring your own

8M Technical Writing – D-E – provided in lab

**Do not come to lab unless you are enrolled. If you are added to the class (from the wait-list or otherwise) after the first lab meeting, please contact me ( ASAP.
