On the outlines Dr. Lavelle posted there are sections that are titled 7th Edition Fundamentals, and 6th Edition Fundamentals. You'll pick 7 problems from either of those depending on which book you have. Usually, we are supposed to turn in our homework in our discussion sessions, but for week 1 (which is this week) we will turn our homework in ON FRIDAY IN CLASS.
From my knowledge, Destiny is correct - the homework is due Friday in class. You'll benefit from doing homework this week even if it is not assigned in the end because Lavelle put in his syllabus that he uses homework questions on exams as an incentive to study.
How are you all picking which problems to do? I was thinking of turning in about one from the various fundamentals sections, but I was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions on which problems to do/turn in!
On the syllabus it says one of the homework problems from each unit will be on the test, so I think it's best to try to do all of them, then choose whichever 7 you're most confident on to turn in for homework credit!
I talked to one of the TAs and she said that they will be grading the homework based on picking problems that are relevant to the material that was taught that week and trying your best to complete them correctly and understand the concepts of each problem. Also, I suggest doing more than 7 problems (aside from the homework) separately for extra practice.
The modules are recommended but they are not officially due. When you take the pre and post assessments, it says that it is not for a grade and they do not know which students are taking the assessments. I did them and they helped me a lot.
The modules are basically the material Lavelle has been covering in class. They are pretty helpful if you want to easily follow along with his lecture or if you aren't as familiar with the high school chem material. I also thought they were a good review before attempting the homework.
in response to the above question, I think my TA today said that it's based on how correct it is. but we always have the solutions manual to guide us through so we can double check our work and make sure it's the correct answer and it's probably best to show every step so when you look back at it you know your train of thought
