Assignments

Tuesday, April 3
Read Smith Chapter 19. You should work the problems that accompany each section within the chapter as you read through the chapter.

Thursday, April 5
Read Smith Chapter 20. You should work the problems that accompany each section within the chapter as you read through the chapter.

Tuesday, April 10
Sapling Learning Chapter 19 online homework, due at 9 am: Available until 4/10/12 (9 am).
Smith Chapter 19 (not to be submitted): 30cfig, 31bcegi, 33-37, 39, 40, 42, 44, 46, 47, 52, 53, 58, 62, 64, 65, 69, 70, 71, 73.

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.

I've tried to go a bit light on the Smith problems, because there are many Sapling problems. If you feel you need some drills on basic aspects of reactivity and nomenclature, you can also do Smith Problems, 41-42 and 46-52.
