Re: Where can I buy a webcam for a reasonable price?

My TA mentioned that there is not going to be a need for a webcam and you can instead use your phone camera. However, if you are still interested in purchasing a webcam then Amazon has some really nice ones for cheap prices.

Re: How to Show Your Work

I don't think we have to show any work whatsoever , but it could be helpful to you if you show your work while working on examples or homework problems.

Re: Preference on Scientific Notation

I doubt there is a preference on how you write scientific notation so it is up to you. I would double check with the professor or a TA sine they might prefer to use 1.0 x 10^6 instead of the other format.

Re: Fractions

In the audio-visual topics, we can see that for stoichiometry we have to use whole numbers so if there is a fraction, you multiply both sides by the denominator.

Re: Showing Work

Wait we haven't had any assignments that has required us to show work, right? Like the homework was just answers. I imagine in the tests we will be required to show work but I don't think the professor or any TA has mentioned anything about this.

Re: When should I start looking at sig figs?

I agree with everyone in the replies. Since the professor or any TA has mentioned anything about significant figures, I just use it in my final answer just in case they randomly deduct points because of it.
