This page is for MMA's Chem I and II taught by Dr. Jesse Reich.

Semester Grades are finished. These are your grades, and only in rare cases will I be flexible. If you ask for a grade change expect a no, and hope for a yes. Some comments are on the first tab of the grade sheet. Unless you are in danger of immediately losing a scholarship etc or not being able to go on Sea Term please wait for the Fall to discuss grades.


Don't tell me you're missing something. Just write regrade on it and hand it in again.

Student Grades are updated as of 11/10/2010. You will see I added a line called "likely grade." This grade is based off of your work you have done and modeling I added at the end (far right) of the excel sheet. I used class average data for the final 2 tests, I used a historic value of 85% for the wiki, the historic value of 90% for the lab, and the historic value of 50% for the final. Your grade is composed of 50% tests, 10% wiki, 15% lab, and 25% final. You can do your own modeling by changing the final test grades, wiki grade, lab grade, or final grade to get a more accurate picture of what your semester grade will be.

If you don't like you're grade you can email me here: blairjesseellynreich@gmail.com


Wiki highlights from 2007 can be found here: Best examples of wiki use 2007, **MMA Spring 2009 Water and Energy Wikis**

Here are your current grades as I have them. If you notice problems please let me know by 5pm tomorrow when I upload the grades. Any comments not returned to me by then will be ignored until the Fall. I am away this summer. Please wait until Fall to ask questions about your grade unless it's an emergency like you will be expelled etc.



I'd like to thank my former students for putting in so much time and effort. You guys really put a great set of work together that can be shared for years to come.

This year Dr. Reich enters his second year as an assistant professor of chemistry at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy. He also runs Baystate Biofuels (www.baystatebiofuels.com). His current teaching load is shown below:

SM 1232 MWF 11:00- 11:50 HA 108
SM-1232 MWF 12:00-12:50 HA 108
SM 1232 MWF 1:00-1:50 HA 108


Office Hours 10:00-11:00 MWF


Grades will be posted here. If you see something you don't like or think I'm missing then you should bring it to my attention by writing me at blairjesseellynreich@gmail.com.


Here's the formula for your term grade: (Test scores+bonus points)*0.5+ final*0.25 + wiki*0.1 + lab*0.15
What this means is that your grade is 50% tests, 25% final, 10% wiki, and 15% lab
I'm not in control of your lab grade (unless I happen to coincidently be your lab prof, so dont' ask me about your grade)

Dr. Reich is always willing to work with other wikis and educational groups. If you are looking to collaborate feel free to shoot him an email at the below address. If you show this wiki in your class as a demonstration of how to teach with technology (which I encourage) please shoot me an email as I try to keep track of where my work is used/shown. I can always be reached through blairjesseellynreich@gmail.com and I'm happy to help you find your way through the process of creating your own wiki and getting something started.

Howdy,

My name is Dr. Blair Jesse Ellyn Reich and I am starting this Fall as an assisstant professor of chemistry at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy. I created this space in 2007 while working at Natick High School in Natick, Massachusetts. The goal was to incorporate another medium in which my students could learn, process, and develop skills in chemistry. It quickly showed its ability to share information, post student work, and enable student collaboration. If you are interested in joining this space and want to know how please click here. To test if you are signed up go here.


To learn more about Dr. Reich please view his Resume, read up on his educational philosophy, check out his Dissertation, or a learn a little more about Dr. Reich.





There are currently 643 members for this wiki, which has 1985 pages associated with it.

Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you in class.
