Learnsmart Chapter 10 Re-assigned

In order to resolve some syncing problems, I had to delete and re-assign the Chapter 10 learnsmart assignment. If you are still in progress, simply continue. IF you have already completed and submitted your assignmentyou should go to the assignment and open it up one more time just to make sure your grade gets submitted again.

Please let me know if you have any issues. I have extended the assignment until Wednesday evening.

Quiz 3 grading problem

I apologize for the inconvenience. It has come to my attention that the quiz 3 scantron was not graded properly. I need to re-run the quizzes and will post the corrected grades once that is done.

Chemdraw Plugin on Cluster Computers

For those who have had problems with the Chemdraw plugin on their Vista 64 bit computers, we are now getting the plugin installed on the university computer clusters.

Click on:
Application launcher
Double-click on ChemDraw

They plan to have them installed on all clusters by Friday.
