Unformatted text preview: 9/1/2011 Why doesn’t Minnie Driver want any help with her organic chemistry? Why is it important Minnie Driver learn organic chemistry? A. She knows Matt Damon cleans floors and cannot possibly know any organic chemistry. A. She always loved organic chemistry and wants to become an organic chemist. B. It is important she learn organic chemistry, really important. B. She is only taking organic chemistry because she is a pre-med and it is a requirement for medical school. Minnie Driver studying organic chemistry at an outdoor Café in Cambridge while being distracted by Matt Damon. Minnie Driver studying organic chemistry at an outdoor Café in Cambridge while being distracted by Matt Damon. Why do medical schools require organic chemistry ? A. Chemistry is difficult and it is used to weed out weaker students. B. All living processes function at the molecular level and you will understand medicine better if you understand molecules and their behavior. 1 9/1/2011 "Do you have a photographic memory?" Why did Minnie Driver ask Matt Damon if he had a photographic memory? You will have to know a lot of stuff in order to give correct answers to the questions on the exams. To help with the facts of organic chemistry, students are allowed to bring one 5 x 8 card to the exams. A. She had heard that Organic Chemistry is a course of memorization and anyone with a photographic memory would surely ace the course. B. She did not date people with photographic memories. If I can memorize the book will I get an "A" in organic chemistry? A. yes B. no Why cannot I get an "A" in Organic Chemistry if I memorize the textbook? "It is so much fun studying organic chemistry! Are you mad? Have you completely lost your mind? Nobody studies organic chemistry for fun." A. True B. False A. No one ever gets an "A" in Organic Chemistry. B. Many of the questions on the exams require the application of the facts to the solution of a specific problem. These problems are often not in the textbook. "There are some very smart people at Harvard and even they have to study organic chemistry." Why do smart people have to study Organic Chemistry? They are smart and they are going to study very hard and A. Because it is really hard. they have an excellent support system. B. Because it is a subject different than you may have studied before.
