Laboratory Safety Training - Science 1807
Provincial Health and Safety legislation requires that Memorial ensure the health and safety of its employees and students. All students enrolled in chemistry courses will be exposed to chemicals and therefore are required to complete Science 1807 (Safety in Science Lab). In order to have access to the online course, students must register for Science 1807 through Memorial Self-Service. No tuition is charged for this course.

Students must register for Science 1807 through Memorial Self-Service. Students can then access the course online through D2L using their login ID. The course consists of a Safety and a WHMIS test. In order to successfully complete the course, a mark of at least 80% must be achieved on each of the two tests. Students who do not successfully complete Science 1807 by the end of the ADD period (Thursday, January 18, 2018) will be de-registered from all their lab courses requiring it.

Accommodations. Memorial University is committed to ensuring an environment of understanding and respect for the dignity and worth of each student and also to supporting inclusive education based on the principles of equity, accessibility, and collaboration.

Integrity 100A/B
All students entering First Year courses at MUN are required to complete a Integrity course which has two parts with the first part having to be completed in their first semester.

Integrity 100A will be available in July once you have registered for your courses for the Fall Term. You will have to successfully complete the course before you receive your assigned registration time for the Winter Term. Information about assigned registration time for the Winter Term is sent to your email and should be available by the middle of October. Once information about your registration time has been made available, you will still have approximately six weeks to complete Integrity 100A before registration begins.

Integrity 100B will be available starting October 1st and after you have successfully completed Integrity 100A. You will have to successfully complete 100B before you receive your assigned registration time for the Spring Term (or the following Fall Term should you not plan on taking courses during the Spring semester).

Academic Misconduct:
Cheating is not permitted. The act of cheating includes, but is not limited to, the copying of lab materials and assignments from previous or current years, or using unreferenced information in a lab write up, paper, or presentation. University regulations pertaining to cheating are found in the university calendar in section 6.12. If you are caught cheating, the first incident will be forwarded to the Head of Chemistry for a resolution. If you are found guilty at the Departmental level, the penalty is usually a zero on the work in question as well as a letter of reprimand copied to the registrar describing the incident and the resolution, and will be kept on file. In the event of a second offence, the incident will be directed to SCUGS (which can also happen on the first offence). An incident which is resolved by SCUGS usually result in harsher penalties such as reduction of your mark for the course, probation, suspension, or expulsion. Note that the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Studies (SCUGS) resolves all offences that involve allegations of impersonation, submission of forged documents, or academic misconduct on exams or works in excess of 20% of the grade.

Required Text and Material Information for Winter 2018 Textbook: Chemistry: “A Molecular Approach” by Nivaldo J. Tro, Travis D. Fridgen, Lawton E. Shaw, 2nd Canadian Edition.

Note: This is the same textbook/codes that were used in the prerequisite course to this one, Chem 1010, so there is no need to purchase a new textbook if you had it already for Chem 1010.

If you have questions regarding textbook/online material needs, please feel free to speak with your instructor upon the start of the Winter semester.
