Test Materials

Does anyone know if we will be given a periodic table for the tests in 14A?

Yes, we are given a periodic table as well as the formula sheet posted on Dr. Lavelle's website.

Are we also going to be given Avogadro's number?

Avogadro's number was given to me on formula sheets in my high school chemistry class, so I think it could be on there, but it might be safer to just memorize it.

I read from another forum that we will be given the periodic table and formula sheet for quizzes, midterms, and final. But in my opinion we should memorize the constant and other commonly used forumlas just in case.

We will be given the periodic table along with the essential formulas. Although, memorizing Avagadro's constant can be beneficial just in case. Also, just a reminder that all exams will require you to write in pen only so make sure to bring that as well.

Does anybody know if we are required to know the common polyatomic ions (their names, formula, and charges) for the quiz on Week 2?

No, I don't think we are required to know the common polyatomic ions. I'm pretty sure that they'll give us the names of any molecules. All we need to know is the stuff we covered in class like limiting reactants, combustion problems, balancing equations, and dilution problems.

Regarding test materials, remember to bring a NON-GRAPHING SCIENTIFIC CALCULATOR!!

I'm sure we will be given the periodic table and the molecular formulas for compounds (if not asked to find the molecular formula). I am not sure about a formula sheet, but I would definitely recommend memorizing Avogadro's constant since I noticed that we had to use it in a lot of questions from section E. As for materials we need to bring, I think we just need a pen and calculator.

Don't forget to bring your bruincard to major exams! Some classes/proctors require it to prove that you are indeed the student who is supposed to be taking the exam that you're turning in.

Since we have to use a pen for the exam, are we allowed to use pencil and/or a piece of scratch paper to work things out? I feel like I would have to cross a lot of things out working in pen.

Does anyone know if we need to memorize all of the SI unit conversions?

Yes, I asked the TA and he said he believes the periodic table will be provided. I think it's best to memorize Avogadro's Constant and to try to remember SI Conversions. The TA reviewed SI conversions during my discussion which means it probably is going to be important to know these conversions during the test.
