I didn't know anyone in the class so I responded to Meghann on the discussion list. She was looking for group members. We originally had four members but two of them joined other groups, so our group consists of just the two of us. We met once a week at Memorial Union in the afternoons and studied together before each test. We worked the problems at the end of each chapter and studied our notes. We each made flashcards for each test and studied them then exchanged cards and studied each others. This worked out really well. We looked at the visualization center and the webpage material separately unless one of us did not understand something. We both agree that collaborate learning is a good strategy for a course like Chemistry 210. We also think it worked out well that it was just the two of us because it would have been hard getting four or five people together. It was hard enough for just us to get together. Group studying, we feel has helped us to understand the material more thoroughly and it gave each of us an idea of what to study by consulting each other. On the whole this was a good experience for both of us and we feel our group was successful in the goal of collaborate learning.
