Chemistry was going so well. I understood the lectures, I understood the PSETS, and I liked the profesor. Then, towards the end of the lecture today, something happened. I'm not sure what happened, I guess that's part of the problem, but Sadoway just started spewing info that was impossible to absorb. I've included a link to the video, it starts to spin wildly out of control and outside my bounds of understanding at about 38:20.


Oh, one last thing, our prof casually mentioned that we had to memorize the periodic table by next Friday. It's like drinking from a firehose!

Mmmmmmm, MIT.

Take 8.02, then rewatch that little portion and see if it makes sense then. Or I'll explain it to you some time if you like. Happy quiz tomorrow!

Try to memorize the periodic table by making a phonetic song of sorts usingthe symbols of the elements. I have managed till Mercury using this method. Only 31 more elements to go. Yay!

This may sound strange, but I can't wait to be in this predicament! Does this mean I'm a masochist?

Not to sound pretentious or anything, but I did that stuff in high school. It's easier if you read through the derivation a second time and take it bit by bit.
