8/31/17 1 Announcements Smartwork homework is active Chapter 2 is due September 7 Part 1 of Chapter 3 will post after class The first test is September 12 The Monday before (Sep. 11) is an optional class that will be a review. For the review, I will come to class and answer questions. No questions, and we will stand here and stare at each other… On memorizing My motivation in having you memorize things like Table 2.3 is to achieve automaticity. We don’t want to have to use cognitive resources to remember things like what is a polyatomic ion, because they “steal” cognitive resources from the important part of the problem. Example of a problem that happens on board… Line structures The shorthand of symbolic representations gets even shorter for organic molecules. Relies on the knowledge that carbon always has four bonds, and hydrogen atoms will be present to “fill” any unused bonding capability. Oxygen has 2 bonds, nitrogen has 3 Gives rise to line structure we’ll draw some on the board.

    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.
