I've been having
some technical problems with my %$#&^@ computer but things are starting
to come together with the Help Session video from Monday evening.
Here is the first problem
we did from sample test Exam II Question #3.
Here is the second problem
we did from sample test Exam IV Question #10.
Here is the third problem
we did from sample test Exam IV Question #8.
The audio is not great but at least that annoying periodic
hiss is gone!
with a problem from the problem sets? Check the Problem
Set link on our Web Site, there is a clip from a recent lecture or from
a Help Session of me doing that problem or one like it.
PS8 and PS9 are now available.
Exam II is
Wednesday, October 18, 2000 beginning at 5:30 pm. Rooms are the same as for
Exam I. Check here if you've forgotten.
McGee is doing a Help Session on Tuesday evening at 8:30 pm in PS103. Anyone
Here is the Useful Information
pages for Exam II. Check them out. Did I leave anything off? Let me know if
for the week of October 16, 2000 is now available. This laboratory experiment
is due by 5:00 pm the day of your normal laboratory in my office PS155. If
you have ANY question please get in touch with Dr. G. Get started early so
if you have questions you will not miss turning in your completed laboratory
experiment. Here is a clip from
Wednesday, October 11th lecture discussing next week's laboratory assignment.
Sample exams covering
material for our Exam II are now available. (Scroll to the bottom of the page.)
I've got some lecture notes for Chapter
5 posted. They still need some work, but they are a start.
Check out this week's laboratory. Everyone is doing the same
experiment. But there will have to be some accommodation by the student's
doing the HBL laboratory. Please review the information at the Laboratory
link. If you have any questions e-mail me. This should be a fun diversion
for the HBL students.
If you are using a 56K modem to connect to our Web Site here
is a digital lecture from September
18, 2000 which I have compressed for play at that speed. Check it out and
let me know what you think.
Remember during the week of October 16th you will do your
laboratory experiment from a computer. To do the experiment you will need
a computer connected to the Internet (connection speed is not critical)
and you MUST be running the Internet Explorer 4.5 (or higher) browser. The
laboratory will take some time to do so plan ahead. I recommend doing the
experiment during your normal laboratory time to avoid any time crunch.
More information plus the link to the software will be available soon so
if you want to do the experiment early you can. Remember Exam II is Wednesday,
I've added some sample Real audio files of some sample stoichiometry
and sample limiting reagent problems at the Real
Audio/Video link. You must have the Real
Player (different from the QuickTime Player) to view/listen to these files.
Check it out.
The exam average 67. FANTASTIC! I was shooting for a 65!
The highest exam in each section is a 97. OUTSTANDING! Come to class on Friday
and see all the swag the student with the highest grade receives!
Kelly Ganzel left his chemistry textbook in the B023 (Chemistry
resource Center) around 4:00 pm on Tuesday. Did anyone pick up his book thinking
it was their own? Do you now have two books when you thought you only should
have one? Contact dr. g.
If you are in the 3:30 pm lecture section and have not yet
located a laboratory manual you can go to the BookTrader on Hall of Fame,
east of Duck on the north side of the road. They were contacted this morning
and they still have lab manuals.
I've listed the room each section will take their exams this
semester at the Exams link. Check it out.
If you arrive late to the exam because you get lost and can not find the correct
room I am under no oligation to give you the same amount of time to do the
exam as those students who arrived on time. (Not that this will be a problem!)
Some new stuff to memorize
Here is an example of just one of the talents
of Robert Sleezer, one of our CHEM 1314 student. If you have a skill that
needs to be shared with the world on video, see dr. g.
I just had a talk with the Director of the General Chemistry
Laboratories and it was agreed that ALL students must wear eye protection
in the laboratories. So all students, including HBL, must get eye protection.
The tutoring schedule is now available at the Tutoring link.
The TA's in red are CHEM 1314 TA's.
I've got an initial version of a digital lecture on Wednesday,
August 23rd on the QuickTime/Real Lectures
link so check it out. Send me an email and let me know what happens or
if you have any problems. Welcome to the future!
I've listed some recommended problems from Chapters 1 and
2. The list can be found in the Problem Set link at the bottom of the page.
If you would like to practice and test your knowledge on
figures here is some software which will randomly generate questions.
There are more of these types of randomly generated questions at our Problem
Set link. Just scroll down the page a little to get to the link.
In order to post grade information (scores on problem sets,
laboratory's and exams) I need your permission. Go the SID#/Name link and
enter a number, name or combination unique to you. I will post grade information
using your SID# or SIDName. You do not HAVE to have an SID#/Name if you do
not want to. There are some additional questions that I would like you to
answer for some EXTRA CREDIT.
One of the more popular periodic tables on the web is at
http://www.shef.ac.uk/~chem/web-elements/. Check out if you need to find some physical properties for
any particular elements.
Start memorizing..avoid the rush!
Things to memorize;
Tables 2.3 (p 67), 2.4 (p 69), 2.5 (p 69) and 2.7 (p 73).
I'll give you some tricks to make Tables 2.3 and 2.4 real easy to remember,
but Table 2.5 and 2.7 have to be memorized. I promise the first exam will
have some nomenclature questions.
Need some extra money? Love computers and like to do Web
stuff? Anyone looking for some parttime work writing HTML for a campus project?
Check with Dr. G or see Steve Hall in LSE208. You will need to have a resume
describing your work/computer experience.
I've generated a short Self-Test which has a few questions
to provide me with some feedback as to how much you might recall from your
past chemistry experience. The Self-Test has six questions. It is not graded,
I'd just like to get some information prior to Wednesday's class. Give it
a try, see what you can remember. Go to the Self-Test link in the left frame.
