Chemistry Spring Term and Intersession 2016 Course Offerings

In the recent past, the Department of Chemistry has offered chemistry 1010 and 1011 in the intersession and chemistry 1031 in the spring semester.

Due to recent changes to first year chemistry courses, the Chemistry Department wishes to notify departments and students of the following changes to first year offerings in the spring term and intersession:

CHEM 1010 and 1011 will be offered during the intersession.
CHEM 1050 and 1051 will be offered in the 14-week spring term.
CHEM 1031 is no longer offered.

It is anticipated that after 2016 we will no longer offer CHEM 1011 in spring and intersession semesters. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Dr. Travis Fridgen -

Applications for lab waivers (online form) will not be accepted after 5:00 p.m. on Friday, May 20, 2016. Students granted a waiver must register for the lecture-only section of the course.

Students granted a lab waiver must still complete the course tutorial if there is one.

Laboratory Safety Training

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.

Chemistry 1050 Prerequisite Requirements

PR: Science 1807; CHEM 1010 with a grade of at least 60% or high school CHEM 3202 with a grade of at least 65%. It is also recommended that students have successfully completed high school Mathematics 3200 or 3201.

Chemistry 1051 Prerequisite Requirements

PR: Science 1807; CHEM 1050

Departmental policy for canceled term tests and labs:

Term tests/labs canceled for reasons such as the closure of the university due to a snow storm or a fire alarm going off are automatically scheduled for the next lecture/lab period of the course.
