Monday campus is closed which means all the on campus peer learning sessions are cancelled Monday.

However, I have organized the following 5 hours of Covel Peer Learning Sessions:

Covel Commons (ALL Room 210) ALL STUDENTS WELCOME!

Sunday:
• 7-9pm (Step-Up)

Monday:
• 6-8pm (Workshop)
• 8-9pm (Drop-In)

The assigned homework problems are the best preparation for all tests and exams.
See class announcements at: https://lavelle.chem.ucla.edu/class-websites/chem14b/

Test 1 covers Equilibrium and Acid & Base Equilibria which we finished Friday.
See Learning Outcomes for details:

• Outline 1: Chemical Equilibrium
• Outline 2: Acids and Bases

Friday’s class I did equilibrium examples applying them to titrations (salt/pH at the stoichiometric point) and buffers (I did weak acid and its salt example).

Continue to work through the Chemical Equilibrium Audio-Visual Focus-Topics, Assessments & Surveys on my class website (https://lavelle.chem.ucla.edu/class-websites/chem14b/).

See you Wednesday.

Will the current week's step up sessions be posted on here as well?

I would also like an insight to how the step up sessions are structured and how helpful they are like the posted reply above mine.

I go to Jonathan's sessions and I find them extremely helpful! He goes over homework and old test questions and explains the important concepts/equations from lecture and the different contexts that they can be used in! If you can fit it in your schedule, I would recommend it!

I've only been to Lyndon's and Melody's sessions, but I also agree that they are very useful and helpful! They both make worksheets for their sessions, but Lyndon's is a workshop, so he gives you time to work on the problems for about 30 mins before going over how to do them, while Melody's is a step-up session so you do the problems collaboratively with her and whoever also attended.

If you've got a solid sense of what's going on in class or if you've already been exposed to this material prior and just want more practice problems, then workshops will work better for you.
If you're slow at understanding new concepts (like me, lol) it's beneficial to see the thought process on how to approach problems or how to extract info you need to solve a problem you don't quite understand at first, and step-up sessions are great for that walk-through.

Highly recommend them both, they're amazing!

I go to the Covel Step-Up sessions and I find them very useful to answer any questions I have before tests or exams. I would recommend it, even just to go once to see if it helps you.

Dr. Lavelle sent an email out yesterday saying that all peer learning sessions are cancelled Sunday and Monday, and everything will resume back to usual on Tuesday.

due to classes now being cancelled, will step-up/review sessions presume as scheduled or are those all cancelled as well?
