• 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.
  • How many of you are having trouble figuring out PS3.1, 3.2 and 3.3 on our Problem Set? Yea, I know these three questions are confusing..what is dr. g. talking about in these three questions? Try reviewing this 2 minute 38 second clip from Friday, September 8, 2000 lecture and see if these probems are a little clearer.
  • Need some help doing PS3.4? Check out this 1 minute and 30 second clip from Friday, September 8, 2000 lecture and see if it helps.
  • Here is a 5 minute clip from Friday, September 8, 2000 lecture which covers some of the calculations required in PS3.5.
  • Get your studying done so you do not have to miss class before the exam!
  • Next HELP SESSION is Monday, September 11th, 8:00 p.m. in PS141 be there or be square.
  • An observant student, Justin Battista, has found another typo/error in PS3. PS3.6a the percentage of carbon and oxygen are reversed. The problem should read...
  • A typo has been discovered in PS3.10d change sodium in 'sodium nitrate' to potassium nitrate and you will be able to do that problem correctly.
  • 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.
  • If you have not found it yet there is a sample exam at the Exams link. Will I post answers to the exam?...probably not. I always worry that students depend too much on the answers and sometimes convince themselve, after looking at the answer that a particular problem is easy. When in fact it is still not understood. Work the problems, check with other students in the class to see if you agree. If you are having problems drop by and see me.
  • 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
  • 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.

  • 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;

    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;
    the common prefixes for SI units;

  • 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.
