Quiz Topics

Postby Hannah Meacham 2A » Tue Jan 17, 2017 4:03 pm

I was wondering if there is a set list of topics each quiz covers, or if the quizzes are just over what we have learned at that point. For instance, is quiz 1 over all of thermodynamics and thermochemistry, or is it just based on how far we have made it in the syllabus at that point?

Quiz 1 is Week 4 and is expected to cover thermochemistry and thermodynamics. See preparatory quiz 1.
I'll know exact cutoff, and will announce it, closer to the time.

As a follow-up question, I wanted to ask whether we will receive some sort of quiz preparation. For Chem 14A, I know we had a quiz booklet with practice problems with solutions, as well as turn-in quizzes. We will have something like that this quarter?

There are practice quizzes near the end of the course reader, after the lecture notes and before the past midterms, but I don't think those practice quizzes have solutions. There aren't any turn-in quizzes this time, as far as I know. Your TA will probably review topics in your discussion section the week before the quiz, as well.

See class website announcements.
Quiz 1 covers thermochemistry and thermodynamics.

This Friday I will finish thermodynamics in class.

Quiz 1 starts next week Tuesday.

Just for a clear confirmation, then there is nothing due at our discussion sections before our quiz because we are not doing the turn-in quizzes. Is that right?

That's right!

But are there answers to the practice quizzes that are in the course reader?

I'd also like to know where to find the answers for Quiz 1 Prep in the course reader

The video links that Lavelle sent in to review all the math don't work on mine or my friends laptops, I was wondering if they are working for anyone else?

I do not believe they will be posting answers for the practice quiz in the course reader in order to encourage students to work together and attend peer learning sessions or office hours, so they can figure out the correct answers.

Professor Lavelle uploaded the wuiz answers in another topic if you'd like to check your answers!
