Quiz #5 posted and Grades Updated! Just one more day of CH 151... good luck studying for your final exam! Here is a copy of the Final Exam Study Guide which may help you prepare for the final exam. Be sure to bring a scantron (50 questions on each side, 100 questions total), your calculator, a pencil and the completed Percent Potassium Chlorate in a Mixture lab to the final exam. Final grades will be posted to this website and on the MyMHCC Portal by Thursday, July 19 at 5 PM.

Grades Updated and Quiz #4 Answers posted! A copy of Extra Credit Assignment #3 can be found here (due July 16 at 8 AM and worth 5 points; late assignments will not be accepted.)

Finally, if you get a chance over the weekend, check out (and complete!) the Limiting Reactant worksheet (found here) and the Chemical Reactions worksheet (found here) to make sure you have these concepts down before next week... also try to complete the first five problems of problem set #5 (which you now have the skill set to finish.) Have a great weekend!

Grades have been updated and you can get a copy of Take home Quiz #3 and Extra Credit Assignment #2 as well!

Have a great weekend! No school on Wednesday, July 4! If you have nothing better to do (lol!), you might wish to complete the extra credit assignment (which is due Tuesday July 10 at 8 AM, no late assignments accepted) or maybe check out the Mass, Moles, Atoms Study Questions Handout which will help prepare you for the midterm. Be sure to complete the Density lab and finish Problem Set #3 by Monday also.

Remember that Tuesday July 10 we will be taking our midterm exam at 8 AM. Be sure to bring a calculator, pencil, and a scantron with 50 questions on each side (100 questions total) to the midterm... these are available in the MHCC bookstore - get a scantron before the midterm if at all possible. If you miss the midterm exam for any reason, your score will be a zero, so make sure you get there early! To study, I would check out the sample midterm exam as well as the other Learning Resources in your Companion (or on this website.) If you have any questions, do not hesitate to email me.

Grades updated and answers to Quiz #2 posted. Also, these learning resources may help you in your studying this week: a dimensional analysis worksheet, the "Common Polyatomic Ions and the Corresponding Acids" handout, and a sample nomenclature quiz. Using these handouts is optional and not required, but they may prove helpful as you prepare for Quiz #3 (which has nomenclature only) and the Chemistry 151 midterm next week. Also: no school this Wednesday, July 4!
