The problems are located on the syllabus! As for the textbook, you can access a free trial using the steps Dr. Lavelle outlined in his recent email.

Definitely take advantage of the free trial located on his website or via email in the meantime until you get personal access to the textbook. The work is located within the text and the selected problems can be found on the syllabus under "Review of Chemical & Physical Principles."

On CCLE, under "Site Info," click on "Chemical Principles/Sapling Learning" at the bottom of the page. Professor Lavelle sent out an email about how to get a free trial for Sapling if you don't have your online access code yet. From here, you can click on the textbook on the right hand side of the webpage. You'll have to make a username and password. Here you should be able to access the EBook version of the textbook to find the homework problems listed on the syllabus.

Hey! I'm not sure if you ordered the textbook/codes to your house or to one of the UCLA stores (if you are on campus/in an apartment), but I ordered my book to be shipped to a UCLA store. The website is very slow in terms of updating processing times, so I recommend emailing "textonline@asucla.ucla.edu" because they can update you quickly. That's how I got my textbook to come in time, the day before first lecture. I've had some other friends contact them to find out their orders were cancelled or haven't been processes, so it doesn't hurt to check. Hope this helps!

Hi! You can access the Sapling Homework with a free trial; however, I would be mindful that the free trials only last 14 days and our first Sapling assignment is due on Sunday night (10/11) @ 11:59

Definitely try the free trial or you may contact student store for sapling code (if you ship the book to store instead of home)

If you email the ucla store, they should send you your access code for the ebook on sapling. I still haven't received my physical textbook but they sent me my access code through email

If I'm not wrong, Lavelle sent us a pdf of the textbook, no?

Hi! Once you receive your Sapling code, (or if you can start your free trial now - but keep in mind what earlier posts have said about timing on that) there is an eBook that you can easily navigate to find corresponding problems from Dr. Lavelle's suggested textbook readings/assignments. You can find the assigned problems on Dr. Lavelle's website (located here: https://lavelle.chem.ucla.edu/) under the Syllabus as mentioned by others. Good luck with your studying!

A free trial is available for two weeks. I received an email from the UCLA store a day prior to my access code arriving so I would be on the lookout for that.

There is a free trial available. Just follow the sapling link on CCLE and will be directed to signing up for one!

You can purchase sapling from the bruin store in person if you still are unable to locate it online. Once you have the sapling code, then you can just click on the homework in week 1 and it should direct you to inputting a sapling code to access the course.

I’d suggest utilizing the free trial Dr Lavelle has setup to access sapling for the time being.

I can get to the homework problems through CCLE but how do I get to the textbook with the free trial?

If you can get onto sapling, the textbook should be available on the far right side when you are on the main class page with the big bold "University of California, Los Angeles - CHEM 14A - Fall20 - LAVELLE" title.

I ordered my textbook to be picked up at the UCLA store and got a confirmation that it shipped, but that was almost a week ago. Does anyone know how long it takes for it to be delivered to the UCLA store once it ships?

The textbook is only for self-studying and learning the problem sets, I think! The actual homework is on sapling learning.

Also, just for some helpful Information, the homework is the tab on CCLE and it will automatically direct you to Sapling where you put in your access code.

Hi! You can access the textbook by viewing an email Dr. Lavelle sent out on October 6th. There will be a link to a google doc outlining instructions on how to access the textbook. Remember that it can only be accessed through the Sapling link on the CCLE class website page. Hope this helps!

Hello, yes you can purchase the sapling code through the ucla web store. However it does take some time to ship. Some people have emailed them and they have sent them a picture of their code after they purchased it. Professor Lavelle sent an email with help on how to obtain the sapling trail if you needed. Hope that helps :)

Hi! Lavelle emailed instructions on how to obtain a free trial of Sapling and access to the textbook questions. You will need to purchase your own copy from the UCLA store, however, they are very overloaded right now and the code may take a while to ship. I know some people have emailed them and gotten a picture of their code in response. Hope that helped :)

Agreed, make sure you use the free trial while you wait for your textbook to arrive. I was having the same issue but once I got Sapling set up with my free trial it helped me keep everything together a lot better and that is where the homework is as well so you will need it in order to do and submit that.
