College Chemistry Homework Help: 8 Helpful Suggestions


Chemistry classes in college are quite time consuming, especially with labs and lab work. When you are struggling with homework, there are few key things that you can do to help:

  1. Find a unique place to study that is free from distraction. If you are in college, chances are you have roommates. And you might not be able to find a quiet time to work in your dorm or your shared apartment because of that. But this does not mean that you have to forego your work efforts. It just means that you need to find a place where you can do your studies without interruption. You should test out multiple locations until you find one that works best for you. You might enjoy studying at a local campus fountain, inside of your school study hall or academic center, or in the library. Find a place that works for you. Do not be afraid to test multiple locations until you find your favorite.
  2. Review the instructions before you start any assignment. If there is anything on which you are unclear, talk to your teacher and get clarification before you start working on your assignment.
  3. Make sure that you have all of your necessary materials. Chemistry homework might require more materials compared to writing an English response, so you need to make sure that you have everything you need in one place.
  4. If you enjoy music, or need it to drown out background noise, make sure it is instrumental or classical, with limited lyrics.
  5. Have a snack before you start. Eating something healthy and drinking plenty of water will make sure that you can focus on your task without being distracted.
  6. Turn off any tangible distractions. If you are struggling with chemistry homework, turn off your phone. This will make it easier for you to avoid distractions such as incoming calls or irrelevant text messages. This is true of the internet/computer. If you are struggling to focus, remove the distractions of the internet and turn off your computer if you do not need it.
  7. Take regular breaks. If you are working in a lab all afternoon, break every hour so that you can walk around, stretch, get a snack, and give your mind a chance to improve focus and creativity.
  8. Work with a study group. Sometimes working with other students can help expedite the chemistry homework with which you are struggling.
