• There will be a new address for the CHEM1515 class. Check here for the new link. I'll post it as soon as I am sure of the address. You can also find a link by going to Dr. Gelder's page at the OSU Chemistry Department WEB page..

  • Exams are graded. Here are the scores on Exam IV and the Final. Hope everyone's Holiday is going well..

  • Have a Happy Holiday. Drive carefully! Drop by next semester if you would like your Exam IV returned.

  • I'll post Exam IV and Final exam scores as soon as possible by SIC#. I have to physically move the WEB Server early next week so I hope there is not too much down time. If galileo does not respond try honors2.chem.okstate.edu/CHEM1515/Today.html..

  • VOTE on the standardized exam. EASY or HARD.

  • What's new (as of Wednesday, December 17, 1997)? Here are the answers to the 1994APExam. Here are the answers to the 1989APExam.

  • I have access to Andrea's student's problem sets/labs drop by my office. Check on Thursday.

  • My e-mail has been down since Tuesday evening. So if you have sent me a message I have not responded. Hopefully it will be fixed this evening. Sorry.

  • What's new (as of Tuesday, December 16, 1997)? Here are new grades! Here is another exam to practice on.

  • What's new (as of Monday, December 15, 1997)? I've received the FINAL exam from ETS. You WILL be allowed to use a calculator. The only information (Useful Information) on the exam will be a periodic table. No mathematical equations or constants. I believe, after reviewing the exam, the lack of the Useful Information sheet will not be a serious problem for the majority of students. If you have been doing a reasonable number of problems which require you to use the more common relationships you will be OK. I've decided to administer the FINAL first. You will have 45 minutes to take the exam. You will have to use a pencil which I provide and the answers will have to be written on the answer sheet which I will provide. No one is to leave the exam room with a copy of the ETS exam or answer key. I will get into deep .... if that were to happen. So it will take a little extra time to handle all the details. I will provide a list of those questions you will NOT have to answer (about 15% of the questions). After the 45 minutes and after all the ETS exams have been collected Exam IV will be distributed and you will have 70 or so minutes to work on that exam.

  • What's new (as of Sunday, December 14, 1997)? I've added some suggested problems from Chapters 9 and 10. Additionally the answers to our third exam are now available. Does anyone have any questions? What else would you like to have to prepare for the exam? Send me an e-mail message.

  • What's new (as of Saturday, December 13, 1997)? I've added more details of the content of the multiple choice final and the second portion of sample Exam #4 .

  • Office Hours during Finals Week? I'll be in Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning by 9:30 a.m. Monday and Wednesday afternoon I should be here until 3:00 p.m or later depending on weather. Tuesday afternoon is my visit to East Central in Tulsa. HELP Session Tuesday evening and I'll be in my office all day Thursday. Keep checking the WEB. I'll have something new everyday!

  • Be sure to check out of laboratory this week. You will have to clean your equipment and return your key. If you have missed laboratory for any reason this week go by PS243 and see Dr. Cruz. If you do not check out the Chemistry Department will check you out and assess a charge to your Bursar account. If not paid your enrollment for the Spring semester could be in jeoprady.

  • Here is a sample multiple choice examination for you to use to study for the FINAL. I'll have another exam up in a day or so, along with a sample Exam #4.

  • I just got off the phone with my contact at the Educational Testing Service in Princeton, New Jersey. For the comprehensive portion of the FINAL you will have 45 minutes to complete the questions. This has to be a timed exam so we will have to figure that out. The test will cover the following topics (here are the details);

    • Atomic Theory and Structure
    • Chemical Bonding
    • States of Matter (Gases, Liquids and Solids, Solutions)
    • Stoichiometry and Equations

    I will find my Acorn book and see if I can not expand on the heading above. We have not covered Liquids and Solids so those questions will not be used by me to determine any part of your grade in CHEM 1314. When I talked to my contact he indicated the exam was multiple choice, but I have not seen the examination yet. I will find a link to some sample multiple choice examinations from this same organization and have that for you by Monday, December 15th. The exams will have questions which cover the whole year (both CHEM 1314 and 1515). You should only reveiw the questions on material we have covered. (That in itself will be a good exercise.) Don't forget that the Prentice-Hall WEB site has LOTS of multiple choice questions for your review.

  • What to do for the FINAL (aghhhh!) Well you've come to the right place. Avoid the rush....check out the link to Dr. G's Top Ten List for preparing for the FINAL.

  • The CHEM 1314 Final Exam is scheduled for Thursday, December 18, 1997 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:50 p.m. (we might be able to squeeze out some extra time because we are the last final on Thursday. Ludy's and Tammy's students will be back in ES317 (you remember your seat assignment). Andrea's and James' students are still in PS110.

  • Some VSEPR stuff that Dr. G. is working on. This version will not require any accessorizing of your browser.

  • New grades are UP!. By the way the average for Exam III was 50. Overall class average is 62%. So on the average you're doing GREAT!

  • This semester is almost over and I bet you are concerned about CHEM 1515 in the Spring. Don't be! Because I'm going to do you a favor. I'm going to be spending part of my Christmas Break getting the CHEM1515 WEB site online, so you can get started early. This is a great way to impress your parents and your friends! What address you ask? I'm not sure so I'm going to give you two possible places to look. First,



    or check under my name at the chemistry department homepage.

  • The animations which I have been using in class for Chapter 7 can be accessed via this link.

  • We have Justin Brooks to thank for generating an Excel spreadsheet which will calculate your current course grade. You enter in your homework, laboratory and exam scores and it will calculate your actual course percent. Just follow the simple instructions. If you have questions send Justin or myself a message. WAY TO GO JUSTIN!

  • This space reserved for the link to all of your grades. The scores are sorted by your SIC#.

    Want your SIC#?? better see or e-mail dr. g.

  • While surfing I found this site for information on medical careers. You may have this information already, but I found it interesting.
