How to maximize the benefit of watching these screencasts:

Try the problem first! Pause the video and attempt to set up the problem or work through parts prior to watching how it is done.
Follow a checklist as a guide for solving problems:

1. Draw a diagram
2. Write down knowns and unknowns
3. Perform degrees of freedom analysis (if applicable)
4. Write down equations of interest (e.g., mass balances, rate laws, equations of state)
5. Work through without substituting values until near the end
6. Label solution with proper units and check answers
