Dr. Ron Briggs
ASU Spring Semester, 2008
Exam 1 Topics
The exam will cover Chapters 1-3 as well as material covered from other chapters in lecture (including oxidation
numbers and the elements/symbols to know). Specific material from your lab experiments will not be tested on this
exam, but the concepts presented during your lab sessions ties in closely with the lecture material.
In addition to the attached practice exam, your lecture notes, lecture quizzes, lecture handouts, discussion quizzes
and assigned homework questions are valuable study aids.
In particular, lecture quizzes and additional problems
distributed in class should be quite useful.
As always, copies of all quizzes and handouts are available on the
download page of the course web site.
Take advantage of TA and instructor office hours (posted on the web site and in the LRC) and be sure
to make the most of your discussion section.
Various review sessions are being planned by your TAs and by the
LRC at the following times:
CHM 113 Review Sessions
(Run by Chad from the LRC)
Wed., 2/6 5:40 PM
CHM 113 Review Session
(Run by your course TAs)
Thurs., 2/7 6-8 PM
* DISCLAIMER: Dr. Briggs does not prepare or run these sessions (he has already prepared a practice exam and
study guide for you).
Any material presented is the responsibility of the person running the session.
If you have any
questions about this material, please ask them.
Any extra materials will not be posted on the course web site unless
you arrange with the TA or Chad to have the materials sent to me.
Exam 1 is on Monday, February 11
in the normal lecture room (H-150) at the normal lecture time.
Please show up
as early as possible and sit in the assigned seating area for your section. There are classes both before and after ours,
so we only have 50 minutes to distribute, take, and turn in the exams.
If you show up right at :40 past the hour,
chances are that you’re going to get a late start.
A seating chart will be provided by lab section.
You will not be
permitted to sit next to your lab partner.
If you do, your TA will ask you to move.
You will need to bring a #2 pencil, a scientific calculator, and your student ID.
NO OTHER DEVICES OR
If your calculator has any notes programmed into it, you will need to delete them.
If you need a
device to keep track of time, bring a watch since cell phones will not be allowed.
If you do not know what your
affiliate ID is, ask your TA or instructor well in advance of the exam.
During the exam, please help the proctors
avoid all suspicion by not leaving your Scantron and Test Book within site of your neighbors.
Early exams are only possible for those with a very good, documented reason
