And by Appointment
Students will benefit by taking high school algebra or MAT 0028 prior to enrolling in this course. This course, designed to meet the General Education Requirements for non-science majors, is designed especially for students who wish to gain an understanding of the fundamental nature of physical science from the chemical point of view. The treatment utilizes an approach to scientific concepts and methods, stressing and illustrating principles rather than merely listing phenomena. This course will require proctored testing at an approved location. Students may be charged testing fees at off-campus and virtual testing locations. For additional information and resources, please see the College's Online Learning website at https://www.fscj.edu/academics/schools-of-learning/online-learning/online-course-testing.

FN Grade - Failure for Non-Attendance

The Traditional vs the Regular Student

Traditional Hybrid Class Option 1:

Some students would rather sink or swim based their performance on in-class/test center proctored exams. Since this is a Hybrid Class, a student will sign a Traditional Class Contract (Gray Color), he she or he chooses this option. This option requires only in-class and possible testing center examination Paper & Pencil Testing and/or Online.

The Traditional Student-Option 1 will complete the ~750 Points of weekly in-class testing as outline above, plus in-class/test center Midterms, End** Term closed book multiple Choice Scantron graded exams (100 points), Fill-in-the Blank Midterm/Final closed book exams (100 points) (with word chapter by chapter word list), the Gasoline Project 50 Points; the Scientific Method Project 25 Points (Option #1 or #2); and up to 100 points for paper & Pencil. required homework activities including CHEM101 online assignments (if not all 750 points in-class testing is actually performed during the term.

* Unit Exams include the content of either two or three chapters above. Short Answer Unit Exams may be replaced with a 100 question proctored online Multiple Choice (and/or fill-in-the blank, matching) exam either in the test center or via Proctor U.

**The End Term Exam refers to the content completed after the midterm. It includes Chapter 6-12. The Midterm refers to the content of Chapter 1-5. The Vocabulary Final refers to all 17 chapters of vocabulary.

***Students may take online proctored testing in any testing center of the college or at another college with permission or proctored in the military by permission. However, Proctor U requires a separate $25 charge for each exam with a time limit of two hours. In the testing centers student have unlimited time as long as they allow that extra time within the hours of that testing center. It should be noted at when the testing center closes, it closes whether you are finished with the test or not. Paper & Pencil Unit Exams are only administered by the testing centers of North Campus and Deerwood Center.

 

The Traditional Student-Option 1's 1000 total points is a combination of in-class weekly chapter test, the midterm and End term finals, and other assigned paper & pencil and online activities. If an Option 1 Traditional Student is absent from class on test day, then they have 7 days to complete the weekly test in the test center or earn a zero. The midterms, end terms, and final may be completed in the testing center (by request) so that the student needing more than 75 to 90 minutes will have two plus hours to complete these exams. (They may be open book as determined by the instructor prior to the Midterm or the End Term.)

 

The Traditional Student-Option 2's maximum total points of 1000 is based on the six exams outlined above.  All Option 2 testing is closed book and proctored.

The Grading Scale Criteria for either option is
A = 90% or better
B = 80-89 %
C = 65-79 %
D = 50 -64 %

.

Canvas Groups
Canvas allows the online grade book to have a group of grades with a running total for each Group.

The in-class paper and pencil test will be a Canvas Group for the entire class.

The midterms will be another Canvas Group for the entire class.

The End Term/Finals will be a separate Canvas Group for the entire class.

The required Traditional Paper & Pencil Homework or CHEM101 Homework will be a separate Canvas Group required by the entire class.

The Regular Student Required Homework will be a separate Canvas Group (Not required of the Traditional Student) and will not count for the Traditional Student's Final Grade.

The first week explorations will be another Canvas Group for the entire class.

The Gasoline and Scientific Method Projects will be a separate Canvas Group required by the entire class.

All the other Cafeteria Plan optional projects  will be a separate Canvas Group which will be counted only as extra credit for the Regular Student and will not count for the Traditional Student. All Optional Projects may not be posted in Canvas until the final two weeks of the course (after Thanksgiving)

A goldenrod colored Paper & Pencil Traditional Student Grading Outline will be distributed on the first in-class test day for the student to keep track of their grade progress on the required work for both Regular and Traditional Students.

The Traditional Student may also do any of the Regular Student online activities as outline above but any points earned will NOT count toward their final grade, even though the points are recorded in Canvas Grade Book in the online grand total.

The professor will fill out a goldenrod form for the Traditional Student (both Option 1 & 2) the last week of class from the Canvas Groups and use that sheet to determine the final grad based on the 90%, 80%, 70% criteria (based on ~1000 Points).

The Regular Student will be graded based on the grand total of points showing in Canvas with the final grade criteria listed above (~2000 points).

The professor believes in Baby Steps to achieve success. This is why the Regular Student's grade is massive and very complicated and is kept only electronically by Canvas.

Student's Right to Switch Student Status
After a few weeks the student may decide to switch her/his student status and may do so by changing the student contract.

Traditional Students-Option 1 switching to Regular will be graded from Day 1 based on all Regular Student activities (online activities have the final day December 10th as the deadline for that activity). Regular Students switching to Traditional-Option 1 must do so prior to the scheduled midterm exams. After the midterms, the student is lock into his/her status.

 Once the first in-class paper and pencil exam (Chapter 1) has been completed by Regular & Traditional Option 1 students. Traditional Option 2 students may switch their status only after finishing the first Unit Exam. Those unit points will be prorated for the Inclass weekly exams. Option2 Students must do all the online quizzes from Day 1 if they switch after Unit One Exam..

Incomplete Grade:
It must be requested following the guideline set by the college. Students who do not finish by December 10th must speak with the instructor about extension of time. Grades will be submitted December 12th.

 

Academic Dishonesty

Academic dishonesty, in any form, has severe consequences. Click here (http://www.fscj.edu/academic-dishonesty) to view FSCJ’s academic dishonesty definitions and procedures.

Late / Make Up Work

Students absent for weekly in-class  testing and the Midterm or End Term in-class exams will receive a zero for that test. There is no makeup. Instead, the student may complete additional optional course projects as approved by the instructor.

Communication via Email  All email must have the designated code to begin the SUBJECT.
The Subject Code for this section: A15T  (for example Subject: A15T: First Email)

All Activities and Testing remain Open until 11:59 pm December 10th therefore there is no late work (The 15 week term ends December 10th.  The December 10th day assumes December 12th will be the A-15 term grade deadline. December 9th and 10th are now called completion days (replaces the old final exam days). Traditionally grades are usually due at 10 pm two days after the last day of completion.

The Midterm exam must be completed by the October 29th for full credit, but it should be completed ~7th week (October 8th) week . After October 29th, and the in-class midterm the online midterm grade will be adjusted manually to 50% of the earned score.

The 1st week explorations must be completed by September 3rd. After  September 3rd (or the day the points are posted in  Blackboard) will earn no points. Likewise the Scientific Method project option must be completed by October 29th to earn full credit otherwise a 50% penalty will be assessed for the work being completed after October 29th or the day after the 29th when the instructor post the grades in Blackboard

Students SHOULD Complete at least one to two chapters per week to finish. Each chapter take several hours of study and testing. You can not do 14 chapters in one week. It is up to the student to set her/his own personal weekly deadlines and assume the professor has programmed Blackboard that the chapter must be completed by midnight on that weekly due date.

The student will notice that the due date for all online testing is January 6th, 2020. Because there are so many 2-4 question short testing, a student who qualifies for an incomplete final grade may be able to continue working after December 10th, but must be done no later than the first day of Spring Term 2020.

Required Projects have a a seven day grace period from due date before deemed late; 8-14 days 50% penalty; over two weeks no grade-work not accepted.Optional Projects have a deadline of December 10th. Deadlines are two weeks after the scheduled required chapters are to have been completed. Most projects are optional except Project #2 Gasoline which is due until the last day of the term

Optional Chapter projects are due no later than December 10th.
