Chemistry Help

To do well in this class it is very important to have a good studying strategy and to get immediate help when things become confusing. There are many opportunities to get individualized assistance. Use them!
  • Organic Discussions web forum (ANGEL) allows for posting and answering questions anonymously. Questions are answered within hours (sometimes minutes) by other students, TAs and the instructor. The instructor and TAs monitors the discussion to assure that inaccurate statements are corrected.
  • TA's office hours are available throughout the week. The schedule is posted below. The TAs are specifically assigned to the course and are experts in organic chemistry. Come prepared with questions.
  • Tutorial Room  (the Chemistry Resource Center) operates during evening hours Sundays - Thursdays. Everyday there are tutors present  who are able to answer questions about Chem 210 material, but they are not specifically assigned to Chem 210.
  • PSU Learning regularly schedules Chem 210 study  groups. For details check their website.
  • Lecturers' office hours are held by appointment. When everything else fails that is the place to seek help, or to discuss your progress in Chem 210.  Do not wait till it is too late and come prepared.  When requesting an appointment, please state the purpose of the meeting and provide several alternative times when you are available.
