CH 117 OO - General Chemistry II

A quick note: SI is free and voluntary, so you can come into and leave sessions as you need. Also, office hours are not available any longer, but still email me if you have questions or need help.

EXAM 3 FRI (08/01)
Sessions are Tuesdays (11:00-12:30pm) and Fridays (10:00-11:30am) in HB 311.
Keep up with this page for announcements, important dates, worksheets, and answer sheets (scroll down)!


         Welcome to the SI page for CH 117 OO! Just gonna keep my intro short and sweet: my name is Rhiana Simon, and I'm a second-year student majoring in neuroscience while taking some creative writing classes here and there. I'm really looking forward to helping you all out this semester, so if you have any questions, feel free to email me any time (!



          Gen Chem II is a more intensive course than Gen Chem I, not only because the material builds upon the first course, but also because the standardized exam at the semester's end covers material from both classes. To help you learn and consequently prepare for the exam, I will:


  • hold at least two sessions per week for review.
  • provide worksheets and answer sheets for extra practice.
  • schedule a mock exam session and review for each exam week. 
  • likely hand out review sheets and the like.


          I will do my best as an SI leader, but if you find yourself needing extra help, you must consult the professor, work supplementary problems, or contact the University Academic Success Center for some tutoring--free of charge to you! And yes, it can be a drag to take this class especially during the summer, but you gotta push through. Just remember: the resources are here. It's up to you to use them!
