Top 20 Quizes and Grades

Hello,

I have posted the sum of everyone's Top 20 quizzes and blogs. This score may include additional points from seminars. For every two seminars you attended, I replaced a '0' or your lowest score with a '1' and included this in your Top 20. If you only attended one seminar or an odd number, I rounded down to the next even number.

Thanks,

-Chad

Lecture 39 - Review- Dec 14

Slides from previous lectures that may be used on Dec 14.Lecture39-111214.pdf

If possible, have specific questions about these slides. This will help focus the discussion and address the most important issues.

This is the complete list of topics that will be covered in the final exam. We will review topics that have higher priority for most of the class.

Poster Judge Assignments and correction factors

As mentioned in class, some judges consistently provided the highest (or the lowest) grades for the posters that they evaluated. These judges have a correction factor that was subtracted (or added) to your total number of points before calculating the average.

In the attachment you can see the judges that evaluated your posters and whether or not they had a correction factor.

The final (corrected) grade for your poster presentation will be written on the front page of your evaluation forms (to be returned on Wednesday).

Hello,

The average for exam 3 was 11.6 with a standard deviation of 2.5. If you have any grade disputes, please prepare a written document with what you feel needs to be double checked and bring it to class on Monday.

I will no longer hold office hours for the remainder of the semester due to attendance. If you would like to discuss something, please email me at sato0041@umn.edu and I am happy to arrange a meeting.

Lecture 39? - Survey on potential topics to cover on Dec 14

If we have a lecture on Dec 14, we will review some of the topics that will be included in the final. The list is Survey-last-lecture-Chem4101.pdf. Please mark your priorities in a hard copy and bring it to class on Dec 12. We will announce the topics that will be covered later that evening.

The list of topics was prepared based on:

1. Questions that gave difficulty during midterm exams and quizzes
2. Lecture notes that were not evaluated in previous exams.
3. Poster presentations that will be selected on Friday Dec 9, 2011
4. Other topics that were not covered in class but could be of interest to those taking the course. See book chapters for suggesting these topics.
