Assignments

Friday, September 25 (or Monday, September 28)
Read Smith Prologue and Chapter 1. You should work the problems that accompany each section within the chapter as you read through the chapter.

Monday, October 5
Chapter 1 Problems 1.36ce, 1.37ad, 1.38acd, 1.39acf, 1.40bc, 1.41ab, 1.43, 1.44acd, 1.45ab, 1.46bc, 1.47ac, 1.49adg, 1.51a, 1.52bd, 1.53, 1.54cd, 1.55cef, 1.56a, 1.57b, 1.58ac, 1.59bce, 1.60acde, 1.61bc, 1.62bc, 1.63abde, 1.64bc, 1.66, 1.67, 1.68a, 1.69ac, 1.70, 1.71, 1.73ad, 1.74bd, 1.75, 1.78, 1.79, 1.80, 1.81

Note: You should work through each problem without looking at the answer key. You will not learn the material unless you actively work the problems. Students often think that they understand the problem by looking at it and then looking at the answer key. Sadly, these students generally find that they cannot answer the same problem or a similar problem when they encounter it again. The only way to learn organic chemistry is to actively work problems.
