We think our group was a little big, and it seemed that we learned more with just a few people meeting at a time. We usually met about once a week, but meet more often in the days before a test. Our subgroups usually met at the library or at Memorial Union. Basically, what we did was go through the class notes, and then make notes of our own to emphasize areas that we weren't as familiar with. We didn't work many problems together, but sometimes answered questions about them if anyone had any. We would print off some of the online materials and discuss them together. The part we enjoyed most was that you always had someone there that can help you if you need it, and you didn't have to work through all difficult material by yourself. One problem was that our group was a bit large, but we worked through that by using subgroups. We feel that the collaboration is best because it cuts down on all the competition which makes it easier to work together with other students. Overall, we think that we made a connection between Chemistry and Real Life, and the "Chemistry in the News" items really helped.
