Preparation for the Chem 1C second midterm Chem 1C (Kahn, Spring 2006) second midterm covers Chapters 16 (starting from 16.10), 17, 20, and 21. The questions on the exam test your knowledge and understanding of topics covered in my lectures. Questions and grading. The second midterm has six multiple-choice questions and four problem-solving questions. The six multiple-choice questions, each 5 points, focus on your knowledge of material. The four problem-solving questions, ( 8, 8, 8, 6 points ), require that you apply the learned concepts to solve practical problem and typically include calculations. Partial credit of 50% will be given for the four problem-solving questions for the work that has correctly accomplished 50% or more of the task but has a small error that prevents student from arriving to a correct answer. Some examples of such small errors are i) being off by a factor 1000 (typical unit error), ii) sign error, or iii) trivial math errors with correct formulas. Errors arising from using incorrect formulae or wrong molecular masses do not qualify for partial credit. Alternative early testing. If you cannot attend the regular test because of family or friends situation, I will provide an early test on Thursday, May 25 at starting at 4:50 PM in PSB-N 2619. The format of the early test will be different: instead of five multiple-choice questions you will have four essay questions and one multiple choice question. You will still have three problem- solving questions. Study tips . See the syllabus for advice and for the list of practice problems. Your individual practice is crucial for successfully doing the problem-solving questions. I have emphasized simple concentration calculations on the caffeine problems and pop quizzes and you need to know how to do these in order to solve the problems on the test. However, the test questions will be more difficult than the simple examples we did on Quiz 4.
