We have a winner. Douglas Haynes from the 3:30 pm section
is the new Pistol Pete Pizza Champion Pizza Competitor Winner. Based on his
time in three challenging events Douglas beat out a large super size group
of challengers to end up as the BIG KaHoona. Douglas won a new television
(lets all go to Douglas' to what the World Series...who'll bring the pizza?)
plus a very cool medal. We'll try to get some video and possibly an on camera
interview of the world champion...possibly even showing how he prepared for
the grueling events.
PS11 is available at the Problem Set link.
Here is video announcing the high score for exam 2 in the
1:30 pm section
and the 3:30 pm section.
Check out the laboratory information for this week at the
If anyone would like to talk to me about their grade on the
exam or in the course you are welcome to drop by and we can talk. Call ahead
or check the Webcam to be sure I'm in the office.
GRADES are up...it is late, so hopefully I've not made any
serious errors in my calculations. I'll double check everything in the morning.
Overall average is still good!
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.
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 significant 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.
names and symbols of the
first 20 elements and 20 common elements;
the formula and phase of all of the elements
in the periodic table;
