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.
