What's Coming Up This Week

This week is the second half of Module 2: The Atom. Be sure to stay on pace! If you have a hard time with electron configurations or nuclear equations please let me know. Check the tutorials in the Announcements and you can text me or message me in the course to ask questions. If you finish Module 2 early, get started on Module 3.

Module 2 Is Due This Friday 9/22 @ 11:59pm

· Assignments are due by Module, and always on Fridays at 11:59pm.

· Module 2 is due Friday, September 22nd at 11:59pm.

· Late point deductions will be applied to late assignments after that time. The Honors Chemistry Department has determined that is ample time for students added the 10th day to catch up and be on pace. At that time all late assignments are deducted 10 points for each week they are late up to a maximum of 50 points. You can read that policy HERE under the Late Policy tab at the bottom.

Here is a screencast (http://screencast.com/t/srxqo6UXS) to show you how to check the feedback on your assignments. Be sure to use the feedback to help you correct assignments and then you can resubmit for a higher grade.
