I did not finish the rewrite in time to post it for you guys, so I will provide copies for the class with no points deductions.
Sorry for the delay, but the lab for CEM131 is posted for this week. We are doing the Radioactivity lab.
I am currently suffering through a virus exploring various portals of exit and will not be functional tomorrow. Class will be canceled and exams back on Wednesday.
This DOES NOT affect exams on Tuesday.
- CEM131 – Start Chapter 3, Daily Quiz
- No later office hours, Curriculum Meeting
- BIO220 – Exam 1 (starts at 9:00), Endospore Staining Lab
- BIO161 – Exam 1, no lab
- CEM131 – Daily Quiz, Continue in Chapter 3, Emission Spectra Lab
- BIO220 – Start Chapter 5
- BIO161 – Daily Quiz, Start Chapter 26
I have finished the first grade set for CEM131. However, you will have to wait till Monday to get your student number. The class median on the exam was a 79%, so there was no curve. In addition, a number of students scored greater than a 90% on the exam.
You need a student number to really find your grades, though you could probably do it with your quiz grades if you tried.
Yes we have class today, so both BIO220 and BIO161 are running. The exam schedule will stay as is BIO161 has Exam 1 this Thursday and BIO220 has Exam 1 next Tuesday.
Some of you noticed the new page in the sidebar. The current plan is for me to take over Organic Chemistry next year and since it has been a few years since I have taught it, I have been working on the design in my off time. Amazingly, you cannot simply throw a course together, so it takes me time to get everything ready.
On Thursday in BIO220 I misspoke. I stated that the Exam would be on the date in the syllabus AND next Thursday. These are two different dates. The syllabus gives February 7th (Tuesday) as the first Exam date. We will be sticking to this date. That will allow us a little review time on Thursday this week.
One of the real challenges in Chemistry is simply getting enough worked examples and practice. Since I rewrite the Daily Quizzes every term, it is easy for me to post the answers from the quizzes I give you with the calculations worked out. This isn’t meant as a substitute for actual practice, but rather as a supplement for your use and as insight into how I write chemistry problems. The PowerPoint is at the bottom of the PowerPoint files on the CEM131 page. It is a live document on Office 365, so it will update each day when I change it.
