Required Text Book:
Chemistry: A Molecular Approach, 2nd Canadian Edition, by Nivaldo J. Tro, Travis D. Fridgen, Lawton
E. Shaw, Pearson Canada Inc.
LEC01: Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
LEC02: Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm.
We strongly encourage all of you to attend all the lectures to engage in the participatory lessons.
Lecture casting of each lecture will be available for only seven (7) days from the day of the lecture.
Active Learning in CHMA10H3:
During lectures, we will be using Learning Catalytics through Mastering Chemistry (which you should
have already purchased with your text book). Learning Catalytics is a real-time polling system that
can be used with a cell phone, tablet or laptop during class time so that students can practice their
skills with the guidance of an instructor and their peers. Students registered in LEC01 or LEC02 will
have part of their grade awarded from their performance with Learning Catalytics. For a video
introduction, please see this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdREwm4NUsg
Assignments through Mastering Chemistry:
Throughout the course, you will be assigned a set of questions through mastering chemistry to help
you practice the skills and concepts taught during lecture. You can access your mastering chemistry
page through a website that will be provided to you on the quercus page. For technical support,
please contact Marguerite Weir at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any issues.
CHMA10H3 maintains a Quercus web space, which archives a variety of course related information
including: grades, class announcements, lectures and lab materials. Class e-mails will be sent
periodically to your “utoronto.ca” e-mail account. To login, go to: https://q.utoronto.ca. Login using
