Homework Assignments.

     Many Students who "did well" in high school chemistry do not
get good grades in college chemistry.      The reason: they fail to
develop the learning skills and problem-solving skills necessary for
the advanced level of chemistry at Brooklyn College.         The big
difference between high school and college is the large amount of
work you must do on your own and the emphasis we place on THINKING
(instead of memorizing).    Your key to success?     Learning how to
study properly and doing LOTS of homework!        Falling behind in
reading and homework is a SERIOUS MISTAKE.       Organize your life
around your coursework and keep up with the assignments.

     As you read Brown, LeMay and Bursten (BLB), do the exercises
and example problems in the chapter. In other words, read and work
your way through the chapter.    After working through each chapter
work out the assigned homework problems. Note well there will not be
enough time in class for your instructor to go over every assigned
problem. A good indicator of the kinds of problems found in tests
is the homework problems. See your teacher during office hours for
extra help.

NOTE:   Your instructor has the option of completing a recitation
        assignment one week after the scheduled meeting.

It is necessary to do some preparatory work before your first
recitation in Chemistry 2.
Read: Chapter 14.1-14.5 in BLB on Chemical Kinetics. Skim Section
               14.4; your Chem 2 instructor will tell you what to
               study in detail. In Section 14.5, omit the
               discussion of the Arrhenius Equation.

Homework: Chapter 14, Problems 3, 5, 9, 11, 16, 17, 23, 25
                      Laboratory Experiments
Before coming to laboratory, read the scheduled experiment and any
other material assigned. Unless otherwise noted, page numbers refer
to your laboratory manual. You must bring the lab manual to each
lab class.

NOTE: SAFETY GOGGLES MUST BE WORN IN THE LABORATORY! The goggles
must be indirectly-vented to offer splash protection; direct vented
goggles (sold by hardware stores for impact protection) are not
suitable. The campus bookstore sells appropriate goggles. If your
instructor observes you violating eye protection or other safety
policies, you can be removed from the laboratory and/or given a 10%
(or higher) penalty on your laboratory report grade.

Scientific data requires special treatment. It must be recorded in
non-erasable ink your lab book immediately after a measurement is
taken; partners cannot copy each others' data at a later time.
Altering or copying data outside of the laboratory represents
                                                                            5
