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. Note: Science 1807 should be completed prior to your first lab session the week of September 12 - 16 and at the latest by September 16, 2016. Students who have not completed Science 1807 by September 16 will be deregistered from the course.

Integrity 100A/B

All students entering First Year courses at MUN as of this September 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.

IMPORTANT - Required Text and Material Information for Fall 2016

The lecture and tutorial materials required for this course include:
• Chemistry (2nd Canadian Edition) A Molecular Approach by Nivaldo J. Tro Travis D. Fridgen Lawton E. Shaw
• Mastering Chemistry Access Code (for all online assignments)
• Learning Catalytics Access Code (for tutorial sessions)

The 1st Canadian Edition of Chemistry: A Molecular Approach by Tro, Fridgen and Shaw is an acceptable textbook.

**Important note: If you purchase a used book and are taking this course for the first time, be careful that you consider the pricing below since if you buy a used book, you will be required to purchase additionally a separate and new Mastering Chemistry access code at $66 (online purchase) followed by a Learning Catalytics access code at $12 US/6 months or $20 US/12 months (online purchase) for use in this course. Note that the Mastering Chemistry code and Learning Catalytics codes cannot be purchased used.

Course Materials available in bookstore as follows:

Hardcover Version + Mastering with ebook Code $180
Note: The above options include Learning Catalytics codes as well.

Chemistry Textbook Bundles:
There are several special packages that can be purchased at the MUN bookstore which include textbooks from chemistry and certain physics and biology courses. If you are taking Chemistry and the additional courses as indicated below then consider these packages as better pricing then purchasing them individually. Note that these bundles include a loose leaf copy of each text and Mastering (with ebook) codes for each course.

Biology/Chemistry Bundle (Bio1001/Chem) $199.95

*Biology/Physics/Chemistry Bundle* (Bio1001/Phys1020/Chem) $299.95
Note: The above options include Learning Catalytics codes as well.

*On-line Codes Only (ie. student already has textbook) *

Mastering Chemistry (available at only) $ 66 Learning Catalytics $12 US/6 months or $20 US/12 months (Online only)

People repeating the course will be able to acquire the Mastering Chemistry access code suitable for use with the present textbook free of charge. Be careful about the choices you make with respect to the purchase of course materials since you don’t want to have to spend more than necessary. If you have questions, please feel free to speak with your instructor upon the start of the Fall 2016 semester.
