Each week, you will be offered a bonus assignment, the Weekly Summary, by which you may earn one half point of your total final grade as extra credit.
It is not mandatory to participate in the extra credit bonus assignment and it will not detract from your final course grade if you choose not to participate. This is the ONLY Extra Credit offered in General Chemistry and all students are encouraged to complete it.
The Week 2 Weekly Summary bonus assignment is due by 11:59 p.m. ET Sunday ending Week 2.
Please provide a summary paragraph addressing specific item/topic/areas that you have enjoyed learning about during Week 2 and how chemistry is applied and utilized in the specific item/topic/area. In order, to earn the full extra credit points, your summary should be well thought out and a full paragraph (minimum 200-250 words).
Week 2 Topics include:
1. How electromagnetic waves (recall the spectrum) affect your daily life
2. The Quantum-Mechanical Model of Atoms
3. The nature and color of lights
4. The importance of the Law of Energy Conservation
Your summary will be assessed as follows: 10 points grammar/spelling, 10 points met minimum word count, 80 points summary content.
