About SI for this Course

Organic Chemistry can be quite difficult for most people, but if you attend SI it will be doable to get a good grade. I will be holding three, 50 minute long sessions throughout the week. In my sessions I plan on going over what was covered in lecture. I will make worksheets that will help you learn and understand the material. For instance naming molecules, resonance structures, mechanism, and synthesis problems. I will not post the answer keys to the worksheets, but the keys will be available at each sessions. I do plan on having two hour test reviews for each test and the final. If you have further questions about the topics covered in both lecture and SI please don't be afraid to contact me.


Correction for session 9/28/17

When I was going over what we did today Si session I realized that there a few errors. The first one was for the 1. The more stable structures are the ones with the methyl in the equatorial position because the methyl puts more strain on the cyclohexane than chlorine and oxygen (Look at Table 4.8). The second one was I number the methyl group as the highest priority when it should have been the third. I will post the correction.

Exam 2 Review

Exam 2 review will be on Sunday, October 1 at 4:10pm to 6:00pm in Carver 205

Errors in 9/5/17 worksheet

The first error was in question 1b. There should be a hydrogen on both the Boron and Nitrogen. The second error was in question 5. It should be a triple bonds instead of 4 bonds.
