Chemistry 438 - Spring 2007


Each week there will be a new discussion assignment appearing on this page for Friday's discussion. You are expected to be prepared to participate. If you havn't seen it by Monday, tell me!

There are a significant number of points given for discussion, of which half are given for participation. For this reason, attendance at discussion will be taken and your score will be proportioned by attendance. This part of Discussion is graded on participation and evidence you have done the reading, not brilliance or cleverness (you won't lose points for foolish or ignorant responses).

The remaining half of the Discussion points will be based on written assignments derived from the discussions or activities. These will be due the during the next scheduled discussion period.

I have put together list for sites on the web which may be useful check out the References page.
