• Is not collected, but is important preparation for on-line quizzes and midterm exams • Office hours and tutoring sessions are a good time to discuss homework problems Note: the Supplemental Homework problems are also posted here. We will post announcements and other supplemental materials as it becomes available. Also: Check ANGEL for postings Grading
Exams: Homework and Quizzes Breakdown: Midterm Exam 1 22.5% Monday, 6/4 at 12:45 pm Midterm Exam 2 22.5% Monday, 6/18 at 12:45 pm Final Exam 32.5% Monday, July 2 Time: TBA Note the dates and times of these exams NOW! Basic Skills Tests Unit (Chapter) Quizzes 22.5% 77.5% 22.5% Computer Based Quizzes
How to access the quizzes: details in student packet: or on Web: On-Line quiz. There are two kinds of quizzes on the Chem 13 Test site.
1. Basic Skills Tests. You must score 100% on each of these to earn credit. You may take these tests as many times as you like prior to the deadline, but you will only get credit if you score 100% on the quiz. 2. Chapter Quizzes: Your grade for each quiz will be the highest of three attempts. Details are given in the On-line Quiz instruction sheet. Note there is a daily request limit of 8 tests per day. Basic Skills Quizzes
You may take these quizzes as many times as you like, but in order to get credit for the Basic Skills Tests, you must get 100% by the deadline in the table below. Chem 13 Unit Quizzes
• You will only have access to these quizzes for several days • Beginning and end dates for the tests are given in the table (next page). • Each quiz will be unique. • Each test will have 6 or 7 questions and should take about 15 –30 minutes to complete. • You will have a 60 minute time limit for each test. • Your grade for the quiz will be the highest of your three attempts, even if it is your first attempt. NOTE: Each DAY starts and ends at MIDNIGHT. The time of the attempt is the TIME of FINAL submission (not the time you begin the quiz), so if you start a quiz at 11:30pm on May 23 but finish and submit the quiz after midnight it will not count if the deadline was midnight on the 23rd.

1. Read text AND do all Chapter (text book) problems BEFORE the lecture. 2. Get lecture notes and try any questions before lecture. 3. Do supplemental multiple choice problems after the lecture. 4. Pay attention to on-line quiz deadlines. There will be no make-ups or second chances. 5. DO NOT put things off until the last minute or get behind. Jun. 19 Jun. 28 13. Review 2 Jun. 21 Jun. 28 Four keys to success in Chem 13
• Manage your time I expect ~20 hrs per week consistently (lecture, reading, homework, quizzes) • Come to class Sounds obvious (?!) • Seek help Do not wait to get help! If you fall behind in this class, you will be in serious trouble! Get help from me, and the TAs, in the Chemistry Resource Room (211 Whitmore) • Choose your friends wisely Cooperative study groups - OK to do homework together You must do quizzes on your own.
