• HELP SESSION tonight, 7:00 p.m. in PS141 be there or be square.
  • WELCOME BACK! I hope everyone had a nice break. Lots of new stuff on our Web Site...so check it out!
  • Want to know what you are doing in Laboratory this week? Check out the Laboratory link on our Web site.
  • Lecture notes for Wednesday, September 6th are available. I have almost all of the Digital Lectures done so check those out. Remember you may need a audio headset in a campus computer lab.
  • How is all the memory work coming along?? I strongly recommend you get the stuff down this week!
  • 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!)
  • Answers for the InClass Problem Set #2 are available now at the Problem Set link.
  • Answers and the grading memo for PS1 are now available at the Problem Set link. You should expect to get your PS1 back the next time you are in laboratory. Look over the graded PS and compare your work/answers to my answers. If you have any questions or concerns talk to your TA. If you still feel you deserve more points do not bring your PS to me until after talking to your TA. The grading memo which is available for your review is provided to the TAs as a guide to grading the PS.
  • If you missed class on Friday be sure to get a copy of Problem Set #2 at the Problem Set link.
  • One of the students in CHEM 1314 has an HP48GX with the Chemistry card and is interested in meeting any other students with this type of calculator. Contact Dr. G. if you are interested.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    ----Previous Announcements----

  • 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.
