CHM 101 Homework 1 (Chapter 1, 3.1 – 3.7) 1. During the first week of a new semester, consider that you have enrolled in five different classes, each of which meets for 3 hours per week. For every 1 hour that is spent in class, a minimum of 1 hour is required outside of class to complete assignments and study for exams. You also work 20 hours per week, and it takes you 1 hour to drive to the job site and back home. On Friday nights, you socialize with your friends. You are fairly certain that you will be able to successfully complete the semester with good grades. Show how the steps in the scientific method can help you predict the outcome of the semester. Observation-Observe your schedule for work, class and driving. Question-Will I be successful at completing the semester with good grades? Hypothesis-If I schedule my time and do not waste time by keeping track of every hour on a cellular calendar, I will have time for class, work, and socializing. Prediction-I will probably get burnt out and something will have to be cut out. Testing-Total hours in one week-168 hours, Class-15 hours, studying-15 hours, work-20 hours, driving to and from work-6 hours, sleeping-56 hours; eating-10 hours, socializing-4 hours on Friday I will have to test for one week how strict I can stick to this schedule without burning out. There may be variations since some classes require more or less than 1 hour for studying.

    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.
