  • I will have office hours , Tuesday evening October 21st beginning at 7:30 p.m. in my office. If you have questions use the west facing door to the Physical Sciences building to get to my office. If a lot of students come we may have to move to PS141.

  • HELP Session, Wednesday evening October 21st beginning at 7:30 p.m. in PS141.

  • Laboratory next week (Experiment #12: The Formula of a Hydrate) is scheduled for Thursday only. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday laboratories will do this experiment during Thanksgiving week. So do the pre-lab. The experiment will have some waiting involved so bring your textbook and calculator. Use the extra time to study for your exam which is at 5:30 p.m. that evening. In the pre-laboratory you will need to define several words. Two of these terms, deliquescent and efflorescent are not in your textbook. Check out a good dictionary.

  • Laboratory the week following Fall Break (Experiment #5: Acid-Base Titrations) is a straight forward application of solution stoichiometry with neutralization reactions. Be sure to do the pre-laboratory.

  • Are you worried about Fall Break going by too fast? Are you concerned that you might not have enough homework to do? Has Chemistry become your most favorite subject that you just can not go without everyday? Drop by my office I'll give you a textbook from which you can copy more problems to practice on!! No need to thank me...I'm here for you!

  • Let's have a HELP!!! Session on Wednesday, October 22nd at 7:30 p.m. in PS141. This is the night before the exam.

  • I was looking for some links for our class on calorimetry and came across a homepage for CHEM5 which looks to be a chemistry course similar to ours offered at Harvard. There is a link to some sample exams from the homepage. The exams are pdf files so you will need the Acrobat Reader to view them. Checkout what Harvard's introductory exams are like.

  • Exam #2 is Thursday, October 23rd at 5:30 p.m. in the same rooms as the first examination. IMPORTANT NOTE: The 23rd is Thursday of the week of Fall Break!!! Be careful.
  • If you would like me to post all of your scores (homework, laboratory and exams) using a SECRET IDENTIFICATION NUMBER which only you will know you must e-mail me requesting your secret number. I will reply with a message to you with that number. Keep that number secure from all living people!
  • Here are suggested problems from Chapter 5 in your text; 5.6, 5.7, 5.9, 5.11, 5.15, 11.29, 11.27, 5.33, 5.35, 5.37, 5.39, 5.41, 5.19, 5.21, 5.23, 5.25, 5.31, 5.45, 5.47, 5.49, 5.51, 5.53, 5.55, 5.57, 5.59, 5.61, and 5.63. You do not have to turn these problems in, but you should look at them as part of your preparation for Exam #2 (Thursday, October 23rd.) The two problems from Chapter 11 are not a misprint.

  • If you have a WEB page which you would like to share click here to contact the StudentWEBMASTER.
  • To estimate your current grade sum your problem set scores, your lab scores and your exam score and divide by the total possible. For an even better estimate of your grade do the following; find the percentage of your homework, laboratory and exam scores. Multiply the homework and lab scores by 0.22 and the exam score by .55 and add those three numbers together. That is the best estimate of your current grade.
  • While surfing I found this site for information on medical careers. You may have this information already, but I found it interesting.
