Announcement: Come to my Supplemental Instructions sessions! We have a lot of fun and it’s guaranteed study time. In Spring 2009 the avg. GPA of SI attendees in BSC1005 was 2.87. For non-SI attendees, it was 2.05. That’s almost a B vs. a C. SI students do better on exams and remember course concepts for the rest of their lives.
Tue., Sept. 22 photo. This is what we do at my SI’s. James Davis is explaining covalent atomic bonds in preparation for test 1. If you’re a good student and you like public speaking, come to my SI’s and you can lecture for a few minutes. I want to be the Johnny Carson of SI, not the Jay Leno of SI. If you’re shy I won’t make you write on the board.
