STONY BROOK UNIVERSITY Workshops for General Chemistry Description: The chemistry workshops are intended to help you maximize your performance in introductory chemistry courses. During workshops you will work with a team of 2-3 other students on activities designed to increase your understanding of course topics, your ability to apply these in simple contexts, and your ability to solve problems. Students who regularly attend and participate in workshops score significantly higher on exams. People: Your Workshop Instructor is a graduate teaching assistant who has been carefully trained to run your workshop. The Workshop Coordinator is Dr. Troy Wolfskill, who will work with the instructors each week to help them do the best job they can. While all of the workshop instructors have an excellent grasp of chemistry, some of them speak English as a second language. Dr. Wolfskill will be working with these instructors each week to improve their communication skills. If you have difficulty communicating with your instructor, be patient, listen and speak carefully, and let them know of specific difficulties you have in communicating with them so they can work on improving. If you have continued difficulties, please see Dr. Wolfskill in Chemistry Room 575. Textbooks: See the handout for your course. Office Hours: Each instructor will be available for at least one to two hours each week. The location of the room and schedule will be announced in lecture. While you are encouraged to see your own workshop instructor for assistance, you are welcome to see any of the instructors for your course. Required Materials: You will need to bring to each workshop a pen or pencil, a calculator, and a ring binder containing your completed homework assignments for the previous week. Each team will also need a textbook. Individuals or teams who fail to bring these may have points deducted from their grade.
