Clickers! Clickers! And only Clickers!
Clickers must be registered in your name – hence
you cannot share a clicker.
Register your clicker at iclicker.com/registration
Student ID is your RIT email address without the
extension: [email protected] = “jdoe123”
You can use the clicker even if it isn’t registered.
It’ll still store the points in the system. It just
doesn’t know to assign them to you until you
actually register.
Phone app is useless without an iClicker
account.

12 points
60 points
28 points
100 points
Attendance is 12 points…but you can get MORE than 12 points.
We click once per class for attendance (not on test days). That’s
about 40 clicker points. Those 40 clicker points become 12
points in your grade.
BUT, you also get bonus points for right answers. So if you end
up with a total of 60 clicker points, that is 18 grade points – 6
bonus points!

ONLINE HOMEWORK! ONLINE HOMEWORK!
This is 60 of your 100 non-test points. Again, it
is possible to get over 60 points – “pre-class”
assignments are strictly BONUS!
Instructions for registering for
www.masteringchemistry.com are on
myCourses under “Content”

ONLINE HOMEWORK! ONLINE HOMEWORK!
Again, your ID should be your RIT email address
without the extension. Please use your RIT email
address even if it isn’t your favorite. myCourses
doesn’t recognize your other email address.
The “CourseID” is “RIT2014chemistry141”.
My name is Lanzafame! 
WT? is a “recitation”
The “recitation” is that other hour on your schedule
that is NOT on MWF.
It is one hour per week of strictly problem solving
and writing assignments. NO NEW MATERIAL will
be presented there unless relevant to the problem
sets. [Except maybe this week.]
It is GROUP work, a chance to get some practice
with the concepts we learn!
Cheating
This is the conversation none of us like to have.
What is NOT cheating:
• Working together on homework assignments
• Working together on recitation problems
• Using the internet to work on homework or
recitation problems
Cheating
This is the conversation none of us like to have.
What IS cheating:
• Looking on other people’s papers during exams
• Using the internet/cell phone to work on exams
• Programming answers into your graphing
calculator
• “Clicking” for someone else’s attendance
LAB! LAB! LAB!
Lab is a COMPLETELY separate course.
Separate grade
Separate instructor
I can answer content questions about CHEM 145
lab: how to calculate something, why something
behaves the way it does. But questions about what
goes on in the laboratory (due dates, lab formats,
excused absences) should be discussed with your
TA.
SI! SI! SI!
Meet…. Your SI leader!
