Principles of Chemistry I
The Mastering Chemistry review and #10 are both Due Dec 12. You need to complete this survey!!
The Final exam for this class will be Friday Dec 14 at 10 am.
SI to review for the final exam will be Thursday Dec 13 at NOON in W307.
Daily Problem The date the problem is due is used as the hyperlink. Legibility counts! Make every effort to keep your answers to one piece of paper. If more are required, they must be STAPLED together. Any pages without names, or not stapled to the first page will not be graded, nor will solutions that are not easily readable. Your explanation is worth more than the actual answer!! If two choices have the same answer, either circle the two to indicate they are the same or put them in the same blank. “The same” is different than “any order”.

Studying for Chemistry:
Recommended study time for science classes is a minimum of 2 hours of study for each hour in class. These should be spread out rather than weekly or just before a test. What can you do for two hours? Consider some of the suggestions below...find out what works best for you.
Possible study time activities: Review/rewrite notes checking against text for accuracy and completeness; List vocabulary, formulas or anything else that must be memorized and make flash cards; Work and rework in-class examples, in-text examples, daily problems, end-of-chapter problems and mastering chemistry problems relevant to the day’s material (without looking at the answers!); Check your answers against the key at the end of text or solutions manuals in library (ask as circulation desk); Guess what questions might be on a quiz or test, create your own quiz and make sure you know the answers; Pretend you will be allowed one page of “help” for the next quiz/test, decide what you would put on it, how you would organize it...then do it (but you won’t actually get to use it on a quiz or TEST!); Visit the tutor center for help with anything that is unclear; Use other chemistry texts for more example problems or different ways of seeing the information (this class hasn’t changed much in 10 years, check out libraries, the tutor center, what you can buy for a dollar from Amazon...); email me if you have something to add to this list.
