Class Vodcast available

Subscribe to the class screencasts on your video ipod by dragging the vodcast icon (from the class blog) into iTunes. Even without an ipod, you can view the screencasts from iTunes on your computer.

The quality is not as good as the Flash screencasts but it should be usable for the most part. Let me know how you find it.

The first 2 weeks are up now - more to follow.

second week update

Just a reminder that you should now be at the end of Chapter 10 problems and quiz and have had any confusion resolved at the workshops or by emailing me. You should have all technical issues addressed by now.

The first test is coming up in 2.5 weeks.
Remember that the Friday workshops are in Matheson 109.

First week update

1) Students who came to the workshops got all of their technical issues squared away and we worked on alkyne problems. A few students also worked on their extra credit assignments.

2) You should all have completed lecture 3 by this point (alkynes). If you are having any technical problems it is imperative that you deal with this at the next workshop on Wednesday.

3) We ran into a few glitches this week with accessing the Real Player lecture recordings but I posted a workaround on the wiki so that you would still have access through the guest account. Right now the Real Player lecture archive in WebCT is working fine. The PDFs associated with some of the lectures have been moved to Item 11 on the wiki. Not all the lectures are there yet but the ones for the first week are and the rest will be there shortly.

Welcome Winter 2006 class

Your starting point for this class is the wiki. I will use the blog this term only for announcements and this is where your extra credit blogging assignments get posted. See the assignments from previous terms in prior posts here and look at the comments to see my feedback and grading system.
