|Fundamentals of Chemistry I and II, Fundamentals of Physics I to IV, Calculus I and II, Linear Algebra I and II, Quantum Chemistry I, or permission of the instructor|
|Physical Chemistry I and II|
Course Evaluation Method and Criteria
|Students will be evaluated based on one midterm exam (25% weight), one final exam (comprehensive, 45% weight), and homework (30% weight). Homework will be given at the end of each class. Homework must be submitted before the next class starts. The penalty for homework submitted late should be 10% of the maximum mark per day late. Both midterm and final exams will be written.
Grade evaluation will be according to the GPA System at Nagoya University: "A+": 100-95%, "A": 95-80%, "B": 80-70%, "C": 70-65%, "C-": 65-60%, "F": 60-0%.
To receive a passing grade, a score of at least 60% is required.
Criteria for "Fail (F)" & "Absent (W)" grades
|The course will be graded "Fail (F)" if less than 60% of the points are obtained. The course will be graded as "Absent (W)" as stated in "Conditions for Course Withdrawal".|

Study Load(Self-directed Learning Outside Course Hours)
|Homework is crucial for mastering new material and developing skills in applying concepts. Weekly
homework will be electronic. A general guideline says an average of 2 hours of study time per week
(assignments and reviews) is necessary for each 1 credit hour.
Notice for Students
|It is essential to sit in the exams during the scheduled class time. There will be NO make-up exam. In the event of a missed exam due to a serious illness, accident, or family emergency, compelling written documentation of the reason for the absence will be required. If the reason is accepted, the final grade will be calculated from the appropriately weighted average from the homework and/or the other exam. If the reason is deemed insufficient, the absence will be unexcused, and zero points will be awarded for the missed exam.|
