This short guide is designed for the homework desks of high school and junior college students dealing with quantum chemistry assignments. It’s a brief introduction on how to deal with the work assigned to them as effortlessly as possible. But, firstly, here are some important notes for those students who are currently struggling with the work or failing their assignments and/or tests regularly.
The first note may seem discouraging but wants struggling students to deal rationally with realities. This is pertinent to first-year college students. High school students will be focusing on completing their high school diplomas in any event. Take a reality check as to whether quantum chemistry is one of your best choices this year. It is, perhaps, still early enough for you to cancel this subject and replace it with one which is far more manageable.
Secondly, struggling students need to know their subject well in order to progress from failing to at least passing at the minimum. Note that quantum chemistry deals specifically with quantum mechanics where experimentations with (physical) chemical systems are the norm. Also, make sure that you are able to define between this area of study and the study of molecular quantum mechanics. Not meant to be in any way disparaging, but we have noted from experience that struggling students often do not understand the basic concepts of what they are dealing with.
Now, still focusing on the struggling students, here’s an encouraging note. Firstly, it is important to note that, here, we are not teaching you chemistry. What we are doing is encouraging you to do much better with your homework than at present. We close this guide shortly with a tip on how you can begin to make inroads towards mastering your tasks at home.
Whether struggling or not, always make sure that you fully understand your assignments. If not, do not leave the classroom before checking with your teacher first. Assuming progress at this stage, also make sure that you’ve taken full advantage of in class time and time after school to take part in the required practical experiments.
We’ve only had time and space to cover an introduction on how to begin mastering quantum chemistry homework. Beyond this note, you can also read extensively on how to better manage your homework time.
