This website contains archived materials (lecture slides, problem sets, exams) from past terms. The current term’s materials will be posted on the Moodle course website.
NOTE: Important class announcements will be sent out via email, so please check to be sure the university has your current email address (check on your MyConcordia Portal).
Dr.Rogers’ EXAMS from previous terms
Lab exams: (Samples not available)
Multiple choice, short answer & diagrams/naming
Study “Operations” (used in your experiments) from Lehman’s laboratory textbook
Dr.Rogers’ PROBLEM SETS from previous terms
ONLY doing the Problem Sets will NOT be sufficient to prepare yourself for examinations.
Make sure you regularly work through problems from the textbook.
You will find solutions to ALL the end-of-chapter problems in the Study Guide.
Use it to help you learn how to deal with organic chemistry problems.
How to properly use your Study Guide:
Do the problems yourself, then check your answer.
Do NOT just read the solutions manual – that will give you a completely false sense of confidence, because you cannot learn how to solve problems yourself without struggling through them yourself.
(Note: in F03 & W05, Ch.4 (alkene reactions) was covered LAST, so was not on any assignments)
Dr.Rogers’ LECTURE SLIDES from previous terms
A note about the lecture format:
This course is taught using Powerpoint slides and the blackboard.
Lecture notes (.pdf’s of Powerpoint slides) will be available on the website before class.
Bring print-outs of the slides to class, so you can focus your attention on listening & participating.
Take down notes on the explanations and examples, rather than just copying down the slides.
