Group 9 Group Dynamics Report Group 9 is composed of former Chem41 students. We decided to be a group because we took Chem41 together and already knew each other. In the beginning we had high aspirations for meeting at least weekly in the Schlundt Computer Lab. However, with conflicting schedules and whatnot, it became difficult to meet. Nonetheless, when we did find time to get together (at least before every test), it was usually in the computer lab and was always helpful. It is nice to know people who will help answer your questions. Overall though, it would have been most helpful had we been able to meet more frequently. Once we began the Chemistry in the News project, we met much more regularly - for at least two hours nightly. We worked well together finding an appropriate and interesting article while taking into consideration each person's opinions. While we contemplated various alternative articles, we eventually settled on the one about Teflon and finished the project smoothly with everyone's help. Everyone worked diligently and contributed to the final product-with which we are very happy. We think that group activities are a good idea and a great way to get to know others in class. Our only misgiving is that of finding the time to meet. Altogether, we would participate in this sort of activity again.
