Quantum Chemistry Concept List

Good questions to ask yourself while reviewing an activity

Read the complete activity and answer the following questions:
  1. Identify each equation or formula that you would need to know to solve a hypothetical problem based on this material. Make a list of these equations.
  2. Identify each concept and new terms that you would need to know to solve a hypothetical problem based on this material. Make a list of these concepts and new terms. 
  3. Supply a definition for each new term.
  4. Analyze the critical thinking questions and their relationship to the material covered so far in the course. Identify themes seen in previous activities.
  5. Write down information that you are unsure of. Be sure to resolve these within a few days.
