A huge part of the course are the office hours. We offer a variety of formats based on 25 years of experience with helping students. Each format is specifically targetted to different student needs, preparation levels and ways of learning. We assume all of you will watch the on-line simulcast office hours on Thursdays from 5:30 - 7 PM, but we also assume you will attend at least one of the other formats at least once per week.

Monday 5-6:30 PM, Room: WEL 2.122 "Missed the Wave" Office Hours (recorded) - This is back because of popular demand - This recitation was specifically added for people who feel they need help catching up or want to discuss older material. TA Chris will lead this.

Tuesday 5:00-6:00 PM, Room: PHR 2.110 Active Problem Solving (recorded)- In response to feedback from former students - Historically, students say these are THE BEST WAY TO SUCCEED IN THE COURSE. New and challenging problems will be presented, and you will work in groups to solve them. Half of the TAs will be there to walk around the room and help answer any questions and provide guidance. These optional sessions will provide the perfect opportunity to ask any questions you have about any of the course material as well. These will be recorded for later viewing.

Wednesday 5-6 PM, Room: WCH 1.120 (This is the WC Hogg building NOT WELCH HALL) Iverson Live Office Hours (recorded) - In response to feedback from current students - I will be answering questions in a standard format office hour each week.

Thursday 5:30-7 PM Live Virtual Simulcast Office Hours (recorded) - Having your questions answered is a huge part of learning Organic Chemistry. Sort of stating the obvious there I know. Unfortunately, in the past attendance at my office hours usually only reached about 20% of the class (or less) most of the time. I am trying something new in order to reach EVERY student with an "office hours" experience- Click here to watch the live virtual office hour simulcast. We will be taking the questions you submit from your computers and answer them live. This is timed to be the evening before weekly homeworks are due (Fridays). These will be recorded for those of you with conflicts. I want to see how close we can get to having everyone watch the live or recorded sessions. The broadcast studio is MEZ 2.220, (meet in the MEZ 2.200 hallway) on a first-come, first-served basis.

Friday11AM - Noon, Room: WAG 101 Active Problem Solving (not recorded) - In response to feedback from former students - Historically, students say these are THE BEST WAY TO SUCCEED IN THE COURSE. New and challenging problems will be presented, and you will work in groups to solve them. Half of the TAs will be there to walk around the room and help answer any questions and provide guidance. These optional sessions will provide the perfect opportunity to ask any questions you have about any of the course material as well.
