Problem Sets are assigned once per week, and are listed as to content on the last page of the Class and Lab Calendar. Each problem set covers material we will be developing in class for the week assigned. The problems are taken from the class textbook, Quantitative Chemical Analysis, by Daniel C. Harris. The problems are to be done individually, and each person in the company will receive an individual grade for each set. This does not mean that you should ignore opportunities to discuss problems within your company or with others in the class!

A typical problem set will usually contain around 10 multi-part problems, and will be graded to a normalized total of 15 points. Punctuality will be highly valued. Each of these will be weighted equally (say one point), no matter what their relative complexity is, and broken down as follows:

2. Wrong final answer, but at least half of the problem right = 50%
3. Right answer, with work shown = 100%
4. Punctuality factor:
5. Handed in at the precise end of class on the due date = 1.00
6. Handed in between zero and one class periods late = 0.50
7. Handed in more than one class period late = 0.25

The individual parts of each problem will be scored this way, and the individual scores added to get a total (Example: 16 for a set with 9 problems and 2 parts per problem). This final score will then be expressed in terms of 15 points (16/18 = 0.888 and 0.888 * 15 = 13.3 points). In this way you will get the same amount of credit for working a simple problem as you do for working a complex one, making it a management decision on your part as to how much time to spend on any one problem, compared to another, both to accumulate a score and to prepare for the final examination.
