I want to make t e most of our t ree ours of guaranteed biop ysical c emistry time.
Productivity in class is governed by t e c aracter of individual preparation and
engagement. ¦o prepare for eac class complete omework covering material from
our previous meeting andskim t e new reading assignmentworking examples as you
go. Come to eac class ready to learn and contribute.

xm Advice±   
Problems sets will be give for eac c apter to reinforce material covered in class
and elp you prepare for exams. I encourage you to form study groups to work on
omework and to prepare for exams. If you find a particular type of problem
difficult find unassigned problems of t at type to practice. C emistry is learned
by doing ± make mistakes discuss different approac es (rig t and wrong ones)
play and stay current. ou will be asked to explain your reasoning and points of
uncertainty during lecture ± be ready.

xm Motivation±         !

t at ig quality omework corresponds to ig exam grades. If you come across
a good problem from your researc or studies t at you¶d like to see on a
omework or exam send me a copy and I may use it.
