Spring 2016 Semester
CHEM 9 - Everyday Chemistry
Lecture: Mondays and Wednesdays, 10:30 a.m. - 12:45 p.m. in SCI 153
Lab Section 1335: Tuesdays, 10 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. in SCI 301
Lab Section 1336: Thursdays, 10 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. in SCI 301
Problem-solving sessions: Thursdays, 1 - 2 p.m. in the conference room of the Science Learning Resource Center (SCI 247); come for all or part of the session - all students are welcome!
Enrolled students: You must be present for the first three weeks of lecture and labs for attendance/roll-call or you will be dropped. You can log on to eCompanion for the active course website.
Class adds: Both sections are currently filled to capacity. There is an official wait pool (via SMC) that you may enroll in to increase your chances of getting into the class. Spaces that open up in the course are first offered to wait pool students. If you are not in the wait pool, you may come on the first day of lecture and add your name to the wait-list for open spots.
For both wait pool and wait list students, you must be present for every lecture and lab to remain eligible for open spots. After spots have been offered to wait pool students, there is a random lottery for wait list students. Students will be contacted by email with add information (if their number is chosen). Students not present for attendance, will no longer be on the wait pool or wait list, and thus ineligible for add codes.
