Announcements:

(5/9/16)  The FINAL exam is this WEDNESDAY, 5/11, 1- 3 pm.  The exam will be held in the same rooms as the midterm exams and you will need the same scantron form.  It will consist of 40 multiple choice questions.  As explained in class, most of the questions will be taken from the midterm exams, but they are not the same questions, so don't just memorize the answers.  It is important to understand the concepts behind the questions.  A detailed study guide is available on the download page.  This includes examples of questions on catalysis and nuclear chemistry (material not on exam 3).  In addition blank exams from this semester have now been posted on the Download page...but, again, use these as a guide for your study.  Don't just memorize the problems.

There also have been extra HELP ROOM HOURS last week and there will be again this week to answer questions.  The ones for this week are now posted on the Help room page.  Dr. Smith will be in the Help room from 4-5 today and 4-6 tomorrow.  Note that she will not have office hours at 2-3 today as was originally announced.


(5/2/16)  The average on exam 3 was 68 with a high score of 95 and a low score of 30.    The answer key and worked out solutions to the exam are now posted on the download page. You will receive the exam booklet back during your recitation section this week.  Please check your exam against the key and let Dr. Smith know ASAP if there are any discrepancies.

(4/20/16)   EXAM 3 is a week from this coming FRIDAY, 4/29, 3 to 3:50 pm. The exam will consist of 20 multiple choice questions.  A detailed study guide is available on the "Download" page, along with a blank practice exam and worked out solutions to the practice exam.  It would also be a good idea to review the quizzes from this semester.  The keys for quiz 7 and 8 are now posted on the download page.  The key for Quiz 9 will be posted after every section has taken it.  I have also posted blank copies of Form A of the three old Exam 2's on the download page.

(3/23/16)  The average on exam 2 was 67 with a high score of 95 and a low score of 15.    The answer key to the exam is now posted on the download page.  Worked out solutions will be posted shortly. You will receive the exam booklet back during your lab section this week.  Please check your exam against the key and let Dr. Smith know ASAP if there are any discrepancies.

(3/16/16)   The keys for quiz 6 have been posted.

(3/11/16)   EXAM 2 is next FRIDAY, 3/18, 3 to 3:50 pm. The exam will consist of 20 multiple choice questions.  A detailed study guide is available on the "Download" page, along with a blank practice exam and worked out solutions to the practice exam.  NOTE that questions like #6 on the practice exam and #14  and #15 on the Fall 15 exam 2 will not be on your exam because I won't have gotten that far in the material this semester.  It would also be a good idea to review the quizzes from this semester.  The keys for quiz 4 and 5 are now posted on the download page.  The key for Quiz 6 will be posted after every section has taken it.  I have also posted blank copies of Form A of the three old Exam 2's on the download page.


(2/26/16)  Worked out solutions to Exam 1 are now posted on the download page.

(2/24/16)  The average on exam 1 was 70 with a high score of 100 and a low score of 15.  All the scores should now be posted on blackboard.  The answer key to the exam are now posted on the download page.  Worked out solutions will be posted shortly. You will receive the exam booklet back during your lab section this week.  Please check your exam against the key and let Dr. Smith know ASAP if there are any discrepancies.

(2/18/16)  I noticed a mistake on question 2 in the spring 2015 exam1 solutions.  The letter answer is correct, however, the wrong two structures were circled together and labeled as resonance structures.  I have corrected this and reposted the solutions on the down load page.  I also have posted the keys for quiz 3.

(2/15/16)  EXAM 1 is this FRIDAY, 2/19, 3 to 3:50 pm. The exam will consist of 20 multiple choice questions.  A detailed study guide is available on the "Download" page, along with a blank practice exam and worked out solutions to the practice exam.  It would also be a good idea to review the quizzes from this semester.  The keys for quiz 1 and 2 are now posted on the download page.  The key for Quiz 3 will be posted after every section has taken it.  I have also posted blank copies of Form A of the three old Exam 1's on the download page.

For the exam you will need scantron form 20788 (light blue, 4"x11"), a pencil, an eraser (not needed if you never make a mistake) and a non-graphing, scientific calculator.

(1/20/16)  Welcome to the CHEM 201 website!

The first thing you want to do is start studying for the ion test:  Ion Test Info
The ion test will be given in your recitation section on Mon/Tues next week (1/25 or 1/26).   If you pass it the first time you will receive 5 extra credit points, which means you'll be starting the semester with an A+++.   So get out those flash cards and go to work!
