The WebAssign questions for this textbook are from a collection of questions developed by Dr. Kay Sandberg, an award winning organic chemistry instructor at North Carolina State University. These questions, covering the main topics in organic chemistry, have been correlated as closely as possible to the appropriate chapters in this textbook. This independent question collection provides a more secure solution to online homework for organic chemistry, since most organic chemistry textbook questions have detailed solutions published in the accompanying student solution guide. However, because these questions were not originally written for this textbook, it is recommended that you check each assigned problem to see if the material required for completing the question has been covered in your class. The question set has been extensively class-tested in large enrollment courses at NC State.

Question Collection Features: Questions requiring automatic assessment of student-drawn structures, including skeletal structures, Lewis structures, reaction mechanisms with electron-flow arrows ("pushing electrons"), isotopically-labeled reactions, and multi-step syntheses, use the popular MarvinSketch application. WebAssign grades these structures automatically, checking for stereo features, rings, chains, etc.

Questions requiring automatic assessment of chemical formulas and reaction equations use WebAssign's chemPad, an intuitive answer-entry palette with over 150 lines of intelligent answer feedback.

Other questions use a variety of response types, including fill-in-the-blank, multiple-choice, multiple-select and numerical entry.

Notice to Adopters of Previous Editions: Previous editions used the JME Molecular Editor to draw and automatically grade structures. This new edition upgrades that limited functionality by replacing it with the more powerful MarvinSketch application. For this new edition, we have also upgraded and increased the number of randomizations per question. Even questions using images and multiple-choice answers have been randomized where possible.
