Flashcards

Postby marlene 1K » Sun Dec 06, 2020 10:26 am

What ways do y'all recommend to study for the structures and compounds? My PLF suggested flashcards when trying to memorize if certain things are mono or poly as well as whether they're positively, neutral or negatively charged. Idk if there's other creative ways to go about memorizing these things that would be a bit more helpful?

I think flashcards are a really good/effective way to study those things. I'm not sure of any other/better ways because I'll probably use flashcards too.

I think flashcards are the way to go, just because they're so easy to make and you can easily quiz yourself and have others quiz you. If you want to get even more creative, maybe make something interactive like a kahoot? I can't think of anything else lol.

I find flashcards very helpful for this class in general. I have the name of a compound on one side and the lewis structure and properties on the other and write down what I think the answer is on a piece of paper and then check it with the back after.

flashcards are super super helpful when trying to memorize names, or just learning the concepts. i would definitely say use flashcards for learning the different shapes of compounds, and naming compounds.

Flashcards are always a good resource for memorizing stuff. I also find it really helpful to just do a bunch of naming problems in one sitting to help me get in the groove of naming compounds. Once I do enough problems its much easier to associate the different prefixes and ligand names and stuff to their formulas.

To be honest, I think it just depends on what kind of a learner you are. For me personally, doing applicational problems with the content I'm trying to memorize helps things stick more but if flash cards have worked for you in the past, then that's a really good way to memorize.

Yup, flashcards are definitely helpful, especially since the naming rules require hard memorization at first. Doing multiple practice problems from the book and online is really useful too.

I think flashcards are really helpful, even just the step of sitting down and making the flashcards always helps me remember information better.
