Homework There are two types of homework Text
and Online
  • Text In each PowerPoint set, I suggest a group
    of problems to work. Finish these by the end of
    that lecture series and be prepared to ask any
    questions on these during the lecture. These
    will not be turned in.
  • Online There are five online homework sets.
    Access these through my web site, through
    Blackboard, or directly. These are graded there

    deadline for each assignment. You can open and
    print these. Once you answer/save these, then
    that grade is entered. The problems come from
    Dr. Gammon. Start on these EARLY some are
    difficult. The Chapter 12 assignment 1 is due
    7/3/2007. The direct URL is http//argon.chem.w
