Group Actions and Dynamics Steve Laramore, Audrey Mullins and Mubeena Siddiqi Communication, determination and patience were a must to keep our group organized and focused. At our first meeting, we all agreed that the best way to choose our topic was to assign a specific task to each person. We researched five newspapers and we narrowed our selections down to one. During this time, we started to encounter many problems. Sharon Teoh (Weicheng) left our group to join another. This was a mutual decision and there were no hard feelings. Ryan Milburn dropped the class because he changed his major. There were only four of us left in the group: Steve Laramore, Audrey Mullins, Mubeena Siddiqi, and David Politte. We set up many meetings to start putting our page together. Only three of us showed up to the meetings: Steve, Audrey and Mubeena. We called David repeatedly and e-mailed him and he said he would show up, but he never did. So, this webpage is a product of three people who were dedicated and determined to making this project a success. We met once a week in the beginning for about an hour and a half, but as the deadline approached, we met at least two times a week for about four to six hours at each meeting because there were only three of us. This became quite difficult because there was too much work to do between three people, but we worked it out. The computer lab was the most efficient place to meet. All of us (Steve, Audrey and Mubeena) had many different ideas and skills. We put all of our talents together to create an interesting and informative chemistry webpage. Individually, all three of us spent a lot of time outside of our meetings looking for links. When we found a useful link, we would e-mail it to each other. We all came across many problems, but we also enjoyed each others company. The Collaborative Semester Project was an interesting experience. It is difficult to compromise on something you feel strongly about, but all of us were mature enough to do so. We would not mind engaging in such a group activity again, but we would definitely want more group members.
