Suggestions on
Preparation and
lesson1-30: Prepare for each experiment. Understand the properties and handrings of the chemical reagents, experimental procedures, and attentions to be paid before starting each experiment. Submit the experiment reports according to a designated form by time limit.  
Requirements Prerequisite: "Basic Experiments in Chemistry" 
Grading Method Evaluation will be based on attitude to experiments (40%) and the submitted reports (60%). 60 Points or more at one hundred perfect score will be required for credit. It is necessary to finish all the experiments and to submit all the reports before evaluation.
