Midterm Exam

Hi everybody!

Do we know what the midterm is going to cover? Is it just going to be fundamentals and the quantum world?

Thanks!

From what I heard from my TA. It won't really cover fundamentals but will cover the quantum world and chemical bonding!

Hope that helps!

If it covers chemical bonding do you know when we will start learning this since the midterm is coming up?

Re: Midterm Exam

Is there going to be a curve for the midterm? Or is grade based on raw score?

Re: Midterm Exam

I remember reading on the syllabus that this class does not use a curve, so I think all tests will be based on raw score.

Re: Midterm Exam

The midterm should be everything from week one to chemical bonding

The syllabus mentions that the tests aren't curved.

The midterm should cover weeks 1-5, so fundamentals, quantum world, and chemical bonding.

Re: Midterm Exam

On that note, does anyone know which topics will be covered which weeks? I expected to see weeks on the syllabus next to each new topic, but didn't notice anything like that.

I didn't see a calendar or anything. I think there should be a week or at least a couple days to review everything (which is like 3 topics?) before the midterm

No curve in the class so just your raw score from all assignments added up out of 500 I believe

Re: Midterm Exam

If the class isn't curved, how many points are needed to pass the class? I remember reading something about using the class average at the end and needing at least 50% on the syllabus.

Re: Midterm Exam

For Fall 2019, the midterm is November 6 from 6-8 and should cover week one through week five. I'm sure there will be review sessions to clear up any trouble areas!

Re: Midterm Exam

How many questions will the midterm be? What type? (multiple choice/open ended)

I think the midterm will be mostly open ended questions, but not sure.

Re: Midterm Exam

Is anyone in a study group that I could join for the midterm exam? It could be helpful to have peer input when trying to study for the midterm.

The midterm will mostly be open ended questions but I think there may be some multiple choice questions as well!

Re: Midterm Exam

I think the midterm will be free response/open ended questions. If there are any multiple choice questions there will probably only be a few.
