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!
Some lecture notes for Monday, August 28th are posted. There
is a new Self-Test also.
I'm thinking a Help Session might be fun on Wednesday evening.
It will probably have to start around 8:00 pm or so. I'll get a room and post
the information here by Monday, pm.
f 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.
Attention students in 1:30 pm lecture with laboratory sections
10 - 18. Be sure to print
out the laboratory for next week's laboratory. Students in the 3:30 pm
lecture with laboratories 19 - 27 will check-in and do InClass Exercise #2
beginning on Monday, August 28th.
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.
Be sure to bring your textbook and a calculator to laboratory
Some new stuff 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.
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;
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.
