NotesAlthough this laboratory section of CHEM 1030 does not give separate credit, it does represent 30% of your overall grade for the course. Your lab grade consists of three components: 25% from your lab reports (your lowest lab report will be dropped) 5% from a comprehensive laboratory final exam.

Safety in the lab is of the utmost importance! You will be instructed in the safe use of all lab equipment, safety procedures, use of chemcials and the location of all safety equipment. You must wear safety glasses AT ALL TIMES. You are required to read the SDS of all chemical used in the laboratory experiment. SDSs are available in the VSCC Portal. You are also required to wear long pants and closed shoes (no shorts, skirts, or sandals). If you are not properly attired, you will not be allowed in the lab. Eating or drinking are NOT allowed in the lab (don't even bring food or drink items into the lab).  In addition, you may be required to demonstrate a basic understanding of the chemical and safety principles of a given lab by completing a lab quiz PRIOR to the lab.
