(C)1)  Topic Selection: 19 Points
          This is a very interesting article to a broad audience.
Polymers are very relative to Organic Chem.

  2)  Newspaper and Article Selection: 9 Points
           The article is very exciting and a good length.  The main
problem is that it needs to contain more science.

  3)  Quality of the Editorial Comments: 5 Points
            The editorial comments are way too short and furthermore, they
don't contain enough pertinent information.  They lack flow and seem to be
merely a stringing together of links.  More thought needs to be shown in
this section, after all it is an editorial that is supposed to include the
thoughts and opinions of your group.

  4)  Organic Chemistry Content: 7 Points
            Although polymers are relative to organic chemistry, not
enough chemistry is given in the article or the editorial comments.

  5)  Selection and Quality of the Links: 18 Points
            The first link, "Polymers," is interesting, but doesn't give
the audience much insight into the topic.  The rest of the links provide
very useful and interesting information.

  6)  Format, Number and Types of Questions: 10 Points
            The questions given fit all the criteria specified for this
section wonderfully.

  7)  Quality of the Questions: 9 Points
            The questions are generally high quality and not repetitive.
Good job on the questions.

  8)  Overall Impression: 8 Points
            The project was lacking heavily in the editorial comments, but
the links and questions were good and helped to enhance the quality of the

TOTAL SCORE:  85 points

Very cool topic!!  

(2) Newspaper and Article Selection:  10

(3) Quality of the Editorial Comments:  6
Directs to sites (like a list of links) too much, does not put things in a
greater context, too short and somewhat dull

(4) Organic Chemistry Content:  9
Not explained sufficiently, include chapter 15 also

(5) Selection and Quality of the Links:  18
Good links, but some were not all that supplementary

(6) Format, Number and Types of Questions:  10

(7) Quality of the Questions:  9
More of a consumer base rather than chemistry

(8) Overall Impression:  9
Interesting, but the editorial and questions could use some work

1.  Topic Selection: 18 Points
    It is interesting to know that the future of cell phones and palm
    pals displays will be in color.

2. Newspaper and Article Selection 10 Points
    The article was published in a high quality newspaper. The author
    was qualified to write on the subject. The article was published 	 	    
    during the appropriate time and the article is exciting.

  3. Quality of the Editorial Comments: 7 Points
	The comments could have some more explaination of the websites.
	The comments are short, sweet and to the point. It could have been
	proofread better.

  4. Organic Chemistry Content: 8 Points
	The content of organic chemistry is good. Polymers are an
	important molecule in organic chemistry. More information about
	polymers could have been given since we have not dicussed it in
	class.  Bond Formation and The Octet rule are also important.

  5. Selection And Quality of the Links: 17 Points
	All the requirements of this category were met.A couple of the
	links were confusing.

  6.  Format, Number and Types of Questions: 10 Points
      Yes five questions with five different categories, and the last  		 
	question was a PSP.

  7. Quality of the Questions: 7 Points
	The first question was slightly difficult to answer if you
	didn't understand the information in the links. The other question
	were  fine.

  8.  Overall Impression 10 Points
	 We were impressed with the visual presentation of this project.
Very colorful.  We think that overall the project was good and
could use a very few minor adjustments.
