1 Chem 162 Section A Agenda for Day 1 Instructor: Ken Marr 1.Before sitting down pick up…. →Chem 162 syllabus (skim through it!) →ALE 1: The Wave Nature of Light 2.Brief Introduction to Course 3.Form Groups →Groups will work together daily for the entire quarter 4.Today’s Group Activity: “ALE 1: The Wave Nature of Light” →Start today, finish tonight for homework 5.Tonight's homework : →Read sections 7.1 and 7.2 →ALE 1: The Wave Nature of Light →Review course syllabus

2 1. Office Hours (SC-214) (page 1 of syllabus) Mondays: 10: :50 a.m. and 1:00 – 2:50 p.m. Wednesdays: 10: :50 a.m. Fridays: 10: :50 a.m. And by mutual arrangement 2. Course Prerequisites (page 1 of syllabus) »Successful completion of Chem 161 (minimum grade of 2.0) »Concurrent enrollment in Math& 142 or 106 or eligible for Math& 151 or higher. 3. Topics and Chapters Covered in Chem 162 (page 1 of syllabus) 4. Course Materials (page 1 of syllabus) 5. Tentative Schedule (last page of syllabus) Introduction to Class

3 1. In SC-323 MWF: 9:00 - 9:50 a.m. Tuesday: 8:00 - 9:50 a.m. 2. Lab in SC-308 Thursday: 8:00 - 9:50 a.m. 3. Mode of instruction: Active Learning with little lecturing (page 1 of syllabus) Section A: Class meeting days and times (page 5 of syllabus)

4 Today’s Team Activities and Homework 1.Tonight’s homework: →Read sections 7.1 and 7.2 →Finish ALE 1. The Wave Nature of Light ALE 1 is due for “stamping” at the start of class tomorrow See “Guidelines for Completing ALE’s” on page 9 of the syllabus →Read course syllabus 2.Use “Grouper” to select teams Your team will work together the entire quarter 3.Work on ALE #1 with your Team Determine each person’s role for today and tomorrow’s sessions Carefully read and follow the instructions Record your responses on your handout Recorder records your team’s responses on the “Recorder’s Report” Each Team’s “Recorder’s Report” is due at 9:00 a.m. tomorrow (i.e. at “halftime” of tomorrow’s class)

5 Random formation of Groups lLine up according to your birthday— people born in January towards the front of the room, those in December in the back of the room. lYour instructor will then divide you into groups lGroups will work together daily for the entire quarter

6 Why Use Collaborative and Active Learning & Little Lecturing? From data collected at the National Training Laboratories (NTL) Bethel, Maine, USA

7 1. “You don’t really understand something until you can explain it to your grandmother” (Albert Einstein) –Class time in Chem 162 is structured so you can teach and learn from others. Why Use Collaborative and Active Learning & Little Lecturing?

8 1. Enhance your learning and the retention of concepts learned via peer-to-peer teaching and helping others Students in collaboratively taught classes out-perform those in the same course where lecturing is the major means of instruction. 2. Enhance the quality of work submitted Help catch and reduce the number mistakes and misconceptions people tend to make when working on their own 3. Identify difficulties within groups and then bring to the full class for discussion and clarification 4. Facilitate the Development of good study habits 5. Develop your skills working with others in a group 6. Foster the development of responsibility for the learning of others as well as your own 7. Facilitate the use of study groups outside of class Intended Outcomes of Collaborative Learning
