Quiz Sections: Each student is assigned a quiz section which is run by a TA (see the list of TAs on the first page). It is important that you attend the quiz section that you are registered for, especially on those dates when there is a quiz. These quiz sections are an opportunity for you to ask questions about any material or homework problems that you are having difficulty with. In quiz sections, you will work in small groups to complete worksheets, and will take graded quizzes. Some of the quizzes might be group quizzes. Laboratory : There is no laboratory class taken with CHEM 223. The department offers a 2 quarter laboratory sequence CHEM 241-242 and it is possible to take CHEM 241 simultaneously with CHEM 224. See http://depts.washington.edu/chem/courses/choosingorganiccourses.html for more details. You are strongly encouraged to speak to Dr. Goldman or a Chemistry adviser if you intend to take labs 241-242. Grading: The course grade will be made up of exams, quizzes, and homework. The breakdown is as follows: 2 Midterm Exams 40% (20% each) Final Exam 40% 5 Quizzes 10% (2% each) Homework Lowest assignment dropped 10% According to Chemistry department rules, the average score in Chem 223 will be a 2.6 ± 0.2.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
