All grades are now posted. The course % on your Grades Page is WITHOUT drops. To calculate your course percent: add the highest 16 PS grades divided by 192 times 200 (add the highest 16 PS grades*(192/200)); add the top 10 LB scores; add your five exam scores. The sum of the PS+LB+EX*(100/850) = course % your grade is based on. The class average turned out to be 67% so I am sticking to the 85% (A): 75% (B): 55% (C): 40% (D). If you want to review your Exam IV and Exam V you can do that, but most likely not until the beginning of the Fall semester. If you see any errors in PS or LB scores let me know I will check.

Grades are posted on Banner. I'll update all your grades in the next day or so. I'll announce here when I've do that. Have a great summer. If you have questions send an e-mail. My summer gets busy right away so be patient.

The Web Survey is posted on your Personal Page. If anything funky happens let me know ASAP.

Thank you for all your hard work this semester. Be safe. I'll post here when your grades are available.

A student found an error in the lab scores that occurred in sections 20806, 20815 and 20823
. I have corrected the error and re-posted grades and grade predictions. Thank you Brayden!

Hurray!! Grades are posted. You have rock and rolled!! The Exam III average is 65.9!! That is higher than recent Exam III averages. The class average is 66%!!

Exam II average is currently 50.8. That is a drop from our first exam. The overall class average dropped from 64.7% to 62.2%. I'm confident that the average will start climbing shortly. Remember if you wish to discuss your individual position in the class let's try to setup a time.

Exam 1 average is 58.6. Awesome!!!

The first thing you need to do to access materials for this class is to complete the Secret Identification (SID) form. Click on the SID#/Name link in the left frame and complete the form. You will receive an e-mail from Dr. Gelder indicating your SID has been accepted. Once you have entered an SID, fill out the additional form for some extra credit, and then you can go to your Personal page. On your Personal Page check out the Assignment Page (what is happening in class), and get your personal Review Problem Set and Problem Set #1.

Be sure to bring your copy of the During Class Inventions and Computer Lab Activities Workbook to lecture and laboratory class.

For this course you need a textbook (can be Tro; A Molecular Approach; 3rd Edition; Pearson Publishing), the CHEM 1515 Student Laboratory Manual and During Class Inventions and Computer Laboratory Activities Volume II, 3rd Edition, Abraham, Gelder and Greenbowe. Also you will need a TurningPoint clicker for class at 3:30 pm on Tuesday and Thursday.

Be sure to checkout the PS0Comments if you are having questions on some of the Review Problem Set Problems.
