  • The Help Session on PS9 from Wednesday evening, April 4, 2001 is now available at the digital lecture link.
  • The laboratory experiment this week is another Crystal Violet experiment. If you did not get a copy of the laboratory experiment in class on Friday, March 30, 2001 see your TA. They have additional copies of the experiment.
  • I've added some suggested problems from Chapter 16 at the Problem Set link. Scroll to the bottom of that page.
  • We will have class on Monday, April 2, 2001. Although I must be in San Diego at the national meeting of the American Chemical Society, Dr. Rockley will be here to cover my class.
  • PS9 was distribute it in class on Wednesday, March 28, 2001. There are some problems with the font used in several of the questions and Adobe Distiller so I'm not sure whether I'll have the '.pdf' version of this PS posted. So drop by to see me if you did not get a copy.
  • Current grades are posted at the grades link.
  • Exams are scored. High was a 94. There was a tie between two students. Sarah Matousek and a repeat offender Chris Williams. WAY TO GO! Class average was a few points down from our first exam at 59.8...60. Overall class average is 69.
  • The TA's e-mail addresses are;
  • Nellie Bruce:
    Bill Alley:

  • 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.
