Principles of Chemistry II
Next week SI will meet Wednesday (7/25) at 11 am in SCI W3007. Squeeze in those last questions before the final on Thursday.
The cumulative (over both semesters) final exam is Thursday July 26 at 10 am!
Course grades will be available in the Chemistry Dept. Office on Friday during normal office hours. You must come in person and bring an ID. Grades cannot be emailed or given over the phone. Grades will be available on-line on Monday.
Free tutoring is also available in the tutor center (Science Hall, 3rd floor off the atrium). Schedule here.
Class meets M-F 11 am to 1 pm in AH N126. Class starts June 21 and goes until July 24, with the final on July 26. July 4 is a holiday.
There are two different Lab groups all meet in SCI E3023
Each group meets three times a week. There will be no lab the first day of class, June 21.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) Sessions will be available. These will meet from 9:50 am – 10:50 am in SCI W3007 on Wednesdays and Fridays. (optional)
Study time—the recommended amount of study time is a minimum 2 hours for each hour in class (4 hours per day beyond class and lab time). This must be done regularly (between classes). Many short (1 hour) sessions often work better than one long one. Delaying to the weekend (or test) will only increase the needed study time and make class time less effective. Use the same calculator for practice that you will use on tests and quizzes.
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, 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; Guess what questions might be on the daily quiz, 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 or your instructor 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.
Final Exam is Thursday July 26 from 10 am to noon, same location, AH N126.
Dr. Myers has office hours from 1-2 pm M-F. But the rule is: “If my door is open, I am fair game.”
