  • Grades are available at the grades link. The high score was earned by Chris Williams. CONGRATULATIONS Chris! You'll get some cool swag in class on Friday. Average was a 62. Not bad for a first exam. Exams will be returned in laboratory beginning next week. I should have more grades posted later in the weekend.
  • Answers to PS#3 are now available. Remember you will not be responsible for nomenclature of alkanes or structural isomers of alkanes on Exam I. You will not be responsible for PS3.5 either.
  • Brooke Crawford wanted me to share with you a scheduled meeting for the student organization for chemical engineers (AIChE). Enjoy FREE Pizza immediately after our first hour exam! Hummmgood!

    Doug Winandy from Novellus will be speaking about chemical engineering in the semiconductor industry

  • I'll be in my office for office hours from 10:30 am - noon on Wednesday. I'll also be in my office from noon to 1:00 pm. I have two conference calls from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm and a meeting at 3:30 pm. Thursday I'm around after 10:00 am until 3:00 pm to answer questions. Drop by.
  • Remember Exam I is scheduled for 5:30 pm on Thursday, February 8, 2001.
  • Anyone pick up a TI-86 in Resource Center on Friday morning just before our class? Another student picked up a TI-83 thinking it was hers to discover it belongs to some else.
  • Any students missing laboratory last week (not the Wednesday students) do not forget you must complete the pre-laboratory questions before coming to laboratory. I recommend that in lab this week you focus on the alkanes. A complete understanding of this material will provide you with the best foundation for learning the remaining material covered in the Survival Organic experiment.
  • Sample Exam I is not available at the Exam link.
  • PS3 is due by 5:00 pm on Wednesday, February 7, 2001. Place your problem set in the proper envelope on the wall outside my office.
  • The TA's e-mail addresses are;
  • Nellie Bruce:
    Bill Alley:
    Randy Hallford:
    Melissa Caldwell:
    Carolyn Nuckolls"

  • Want some EXTRA CREDIT? Complete the form at the SID#/Name link.
  • Be sure to bring your textbook and a calculator to laboratory the first week of classes. Yes, the CHEM 1515 laboratory does meet this week (January 16 - 19). (See the CHEM 1515 Syllabus)
  • Sitting around with nothing to do? We are going to begin lecture on Wednesday, January 17th discussing Chapter 11 in Silberberg. I recommend you review Chapters 9 and 10 before class. In particular, refresh your recall of drawing Lewis structures, the concept of electronegativity, ionic and covalent bonds, bond polarity, molecular polarity, molecular shape (in particular central atoms with 2, 3 and 4 groups of electrons). Check out lecture notes from CHEM 1314. In particular look at;
  • Lecture Notes for Friday, November 17, 2000 and Monday, November 20, 2000: Ionic compounds.

    Lecture Notes for Monday, November 20, 2000: Covalent compounds and electronegativity.

    Lecture Notes for Monday, November 27, 2000: Lewis structures.

    Lecture Notes for Wednesday, December 6, 2000: Valence Shell Electron-Pair Repulsion.
