Group Dynamics Report Richard Stanway Rosie Albers Melynda Marchael Jason Edwards Benjamin Coe Josiah James We met twice before different tests, to study together. It was hard to get together because the group was so large, and we had multiple schedule conflicts. The entire group never met, other than to write the report, subgroups did meet. As we said before, the group size was too large. We didn't have any difficulty working with the others when we met in our group. We do not think that it is the best strategy, and do not like absolute grading. We enjoyed getting to know new people through our group and enjoyed the fellowship that it provided. We enjoyed the new insights that the other members brought to the problems we were given and new strategies for studying by ourselves were also developed. People had scheduling problems and maybe if we had a discussion section the problems we had with the material could be dealt with in a more timely manner and in a better way than a "best guess" by a fellow group mate. Yes, that would be advantageous to have scheduled meeting times. We used practice tests, problems out of the book and the old tests to help us study. We never looked at the online media together because there were too many of us and it seemed to us it would be more efficient by ourselves. We did discuss the news items, however only briefly. We did understand the connection between real life and organic chemistry and used the chem. finder website in other applications beyond our class work. Sincerely Ben Coe, Melynda Marchael, Rosie Albers, Jason Edwards, Richard Stanway, Josiah James.
