Hello Mr. Patch, remember me? just curious to see how you are doing at

Hi Mr. Patch,
It is good to hear back from you. Really college is a lot more lax on class
attendance schedule. Instead of 7 hour days 5 days a week you have 2 hour
days sometimes, days with 6 hours of class but a couple 1 to 2 hour breaks .
however, the responsibility to study is placed on you more than in high
school. i already miss my high school teachers. many times your professor
will be an expert in their field but they have had no teaching training and
don't have a standard expectation of them so they may teach for 20 years but
not become a better teacher. high school teachers are often more skilled at
teaching their subject and so, being more specialized, get better results
from their students. that is if the students have the same willingness to
learn in both cases. educational success i believe is based on a combination
of the students willingness to learn AND the teacher's ability to get a
point across clearly. Anyway have fun with your new students and continue to
encourage them to ask questions! ID 2010
1 thing i noticed in my first chem lab today was that they use standard
deviations. I think that maybe later in your class you should at least
mention or have the students do a couple of standard deviation problems so
that they can be a little bit familiar with it before college. just a
suggestion. ID 2010
i have a problem how do i find the mass percent of sodium chloride
when i know the density of water is .997992g/mL and that the density of an
unknown dihydrogen monoxide/sodium chloride is 1.15g/mol? they are both
based on the same volume of 5mL. ID 2010
Dear Mr. Patch,
I am currently in a Chemistry class at the University of Colorado Denver, and I found that everything that you have taught me has really paid off. I want to ask your permission if I can still use your power points that you post online. I am not sure why, but they way that you teach and explain things make much more sense to me.
Yes of course you can post my e-mail, but you should fix the couple of typos in it. Oops :) I don't mind if you use my name either. I plan on sharing your power points with others in my class. I feel so much farther ahead of everyone, so I end up helping a lot of my classmates.
Thanks again, CM 2010
