[NCC's standard for course work for a 3.75 sem hour course is 17 to 18 hours per week.]

TIMES INVESTMENT: Assignments are planned so that a typical student (with the specified prerequisites) can master the course material at his or her full capacity with a learning investment of 16 hours per week (including class and study time). If you are especially well prepared and/or an efficient student, you can expect to need less study time. If you are lacking in prerequisite experience and/or basic study skills, you must plan for more study time to insure progress at your maximum capacity. Students who CAN NOT OR DO NOT make an appropriate time investment in a course must be prepared to accept the penalty of a lower evaluation for a lower performance.

CLASSROOM SESSIONS will involve discussions of selected areas of the reading assignments and other topics generated by science in the news. You will be tested on things discussed in class as well as reading assignments, which might not be covered in class. Failure to attend class will result in a lower grade in the course. Tests will be held on the dates noted above. Due date for the REAL LIFE PRESENTATIONS are class time during the 10th week of the term.

LABORATORY will consist of a series of analysis of various substances. Labs last between 3 and 3.5 hrs. per day.

Failure to pass the laboratory will result in a failing grade in the course!
