Running Club has a meeting on Tuesday, February 6 in SU420 beginning at 7:30
up a TI-86 in Resource Center on Friday morning just before our class? Another
student picked up a TI-83 thinking it was hers to discover it belongs to some
missing laboratory last week (not the Wednesday students) do not forget you
must complete the pre-laboratory questions before coming to laboratory. I
recommend that in lab this week you focus on the alkanes. A complete understanding
of this material will provide you with the best foundation for learning the
remaining material covered in the Survival Organic experiment.
Exam I is not available at the Exam link.
HELP Session, Tuesday, February 6, 2001 in PS101 at
PS3 is available.
I've been thinking about how best to handle the loss of the
Wednesday afternoon laboratory due to the decision to cancel Wednesday afternoon
classes. My current thinking is students in the Wednesday laboratory section
will do this week's experiment next week at the scheduled time. I will postpone
questions over the Survival Organic chemistry until Exam II, on March 8, 2001.
Problem Set #3 has already been duplicated and I will distribute it in class
on Wednesday, January 31, 2001. This Problem Set will be due at 5:00 pm on
Wednesday, February 7, 2001. So this problem set does have to be turned in
at the beginning of class on Wednesday, February 7, 2001. This will allow
the students with a Wedneday laboratory time to work on the material, and
at the same time work on the problem set. This will also throw off labs for
a period of time until I determine which laboratory the Wednesday students
will not do. This also means at the end of the semester students in the Wednesday
laboratory will have one less laboratory counting towards their final grade.
This will mean Wednesday lab students will use 10 experiments to determine
their final grade while the remaining students will have 11. All students
will still be able to drop their lowest two laboratory experiments. Since
the lab grade is determined by dividing the students lab points earned by
the lab points possible and multiplying by 150, how many experiments are performed
is not an issue. If anyone has any questions about this adjustment please
drop by and talk to me at your convienence.

Be sure to bring your textbook and a calculator to laboratory
the first week of classes. Yes, the CHEM 1515 laboratory does meet this week
(January 16 - 19). (See the CHEM 1515 Syllabus)
Sitting around with nothing to do? We are going to begin
lecture on Wednesday, January 17th discussing Chapter 11 in Silberberg. I
recommend you review Chapters 9 and 10 before class. In particular, refresh
your recall of drawing Lewis structures, the concept of electronegativity,
ionic and covalent bonds, bond polarity, molecular polarity, molecular shape
(in particular central atoms with 2, 3 and 4 groups of electrons). Check out
lecture notes from CHEM 1314. In particular look at;
