Quiz 1 take home quiz

Quiz 1: Take-Home Quiz

  • Due Wednesday, May 21

  • Make sure your name & student number (e.g 1110700110) are on quiz.

  • Sign name and number on sign out sheet when you pick up quiz.

  • Answers must be in English

  • Answers do not need to be long.

Networking and chemistry

First week Presentations Topics: May 21 & 23rd

1)Explain how the internet works. Describe the physical architecture of the internet. How is everything connected?

2) Presentation of history of internet.

3)How search engines work

4)Describe search engines available to you here in China. Explain how to access them. Which one is best? Why?

5)Describe how a VPN works and how it allows you to access information with greater security?

6)Explain how to build a complete list of publications for a scientist. You do this for other scientists and for yourself. You must separate the papers into peer reviewed journal papers, non peer reviewed papers, books, book chapters, patents. Abstracts are for talks or presentations and are listed separately from papers.

7)Discovering where a scientist has worked (company or government lab or University).

8)Conducting author searches (how do you know you have the right Douglas Loy??). Hint: find resume or CV online, identify where person worked in past. Use this information to figure out which papers are from the right author.

9) Chemical searching: How do you use the internet to tell you if a chemical compound is new and has not been reported before? How do you use search engines and the internet to be very sure. (Chemical registry numbers and structure searching)

10)Research topic searching. Keywords and how to find them. How do you make sure you are searching a topic thoroughly.

11) Finding a chemical reactions or formulation using chemical search engines. Show how you can search one of these databases using both keyword and structure searching.

Brief review of last lectures material

Brief review of last lectures’ material

  • Hardware and software architecture of the internet.

  • Finding scientific information

  • Faster communication than letter writing

  • Writing papers for publication

  • Professional networking

  • Professional society information

  • Conferences and presentations

Presentations tell a story

Presentations tell a story

Beginning of talk: tell audience what they should learn (thesis)

Middle of talk: explain & defend thesis and reinforce

End of talk: repeat thesis clearly

Next I will show you an example of a 10 minute presentation

Strategy for complete searches

  • Structure search

  • CAS number(s)

  • Focus in on topic with key words

  • Identify key papers

    • See who the author cited in paper

    • See who is citing the papers

  • Search authors for additional papers

  • Obtain dissertations from authors groups to expand citation base

Internet architecture

Internet architecture


Protocols are software rules that allow different networks to communicate with each other; direct requests, communications, and data to the proper addresses, prioritize signals on the internet. Protocols are the common software rules that run the internet.


a software or hardware-based network security system that controls the incoming and outgoing network traffic by analyzing the data packets and determining whether they should be allowed through or not, based on a rule set.


Domain name system. A hierarchical distributed naming system for anything connected to the internet. Translates easily remember names into numerical Internet protocol (IP) addresses.


Transmission Control Protocol- basic protocol for internet protocol suite that provides a reliable, ordered error checked stream of packets between programs running on computers connected to the internet.


Hypertext transfer protocol is an application protocol for distributed, collaborative, hypermedia information systems. Foundation of data communication for the WWW.


Point to point protocol. A data link protocol commonly used in establishing a direct connection between two networking nodes. Provides authentication, encryption and data compression.


World Wide Web. Network of data servers that can be accessed with requests for data.

internet gateway

An internet gateway is your modem or router or any other periphial which allows you to access the internet.


File transfer protocol. A standard network protocol to transfer a file from one host to another on the TCP based internet.


Hypertext markup language. Used for making webpages.

Router: A device that forwards data packages between computers in a network. Insures data packets go to correct address by most efficient pathways and that they don’t go to the wrong places.

What is an ISP?

Internet service provider. A organization that provides access to the internet.

VPN:Virtual personal network. It extends a private network across the public network, such as the internet. More secure.

Internet: A network of computer networks that spans the globe.
