For students taking Chemistry 101 at the University of Victoria in the Fall 2013 term.
During our review class Friday, could you sum up chapters 6 and 7 like you did for our midterms please?
Yes, that's what I plan to do.
Quiz number 8 is due by the end of tomorrow according to Mastering Chemistry. You didn't mention anything about it in class the past couple of days, so I'm wondering if this is true. Thanks!
Oh. I thought it was due last Sunday! See http://web.uvic.ca/~chem101/quizzes.html. But maybe the course coordinator extended the deadline.
Quiz 7 was due last Sunday on Ch.6, this is Quiz 8 on chapter 7 and Mastering Chem says it's due tomorrow:)
Thanks for the info.
Are we expected to memorize the structures and uses of the sample addition and condensation polymers on pages 95 and 96 of the lecture book?
No, certainly not. But you DO need to be able to recognize an addition vs. a condensation polymer, and to work out the monomer units used to make a given polymer.
One of the Masteringchem problems says "If you want to dope GaAs to make an n-type semiconductor with an element to replace Ga, which element(s) would you pick?"The answer given is Ge, but I thought that for an n type you need an element that has more valence electrons than the element being doped. Is As not the element being doped?
"with an element to replace Ga" is the clue. You need to add an element that has one more electron than Ga, hence Ge.
On the chapter seven quiz, a question was "Nylon is formed by the reaction of a __________ with a __________."I answered diamine and dicarboxylic acid. However, the correct answer was diamine and diacid. I think my answer is correct, but because a computer marks the quiz I didn't get it right because the wording was slightly different.Is my answer correct, and if it is, how do I get the mark?
WHAT?! This quiz was due LAST night?! What a cheap trick! How underhanded! The lows to which you chemists will stoop to! Was it so wrong for me to absent-mindedly assume it was due on the same night as every previous quiz?! With final exams looming, and final assignments due, is it not clear how the assumption could be made, and the double-check not? To lose 1% of my grade for such an understandable mishap, with the fault lying firmly at someone else's feet?! My grade has now been unfairly relegated to the 99%! I can't be the only one! I demand justice!
Re: answer - I've informed the course coordinator, and he will make the necessary correction.Re: extreme (mock?) outrage. I'm surprised no one is yelling at me for telling them the quizzes were due LAST Sunday (which is what the website says). Effectively, you've all had a 6-day extension!
are there answer keys for the two past exams given in our lab manual? just wondering cause practice exams are not terribly useful without answers.
Is there any way that we can get the deadline of last nights quiz, on the chapter 7 material extended a day or two? Many people didn't know there was a quiz due this week, and others assumed it was due Sunday night like all of the others.
I also assumed it was due Sunday night. Maybe you view it as a 6 day extension, but we didn't complete the material in class in time to write the quiz at the same time as the second last quiz. Just completely forgot, apparently I'm not the only one. Kind of crappy right before the final.
I am very confused as to why quiz 8 was due on saturday instead of sunday, as was every other quiz we've done. But i guess i should have paid closer attention to the due dates
Are semiconductors classified as covalent-network solids?
I also assumed the final quiz would be due on a sunday. BALLS
Just want to say Thanks Dr. McIndoe! You were a great teacher and made class so much fun :)
Hey, thanks a lot, glad you enjoyed it.
