Important Remarks

  • All announcement and notes related to the course will published on and “ninova” system. Students are supposed to check this web sites regularly.

  • Students will apply to the faculty they are affiliated with to object to exam results and take excuse exams. They must forward the official letter they receive from the faculty to the KIM 101 coordinator.
  • Students must bring their own calculators into their exams that they’re familiar with and that are in good working order. Calculators may not be shared.
  • Students are not allowed to use mobile phones as calculators.
  • A PDF file about Naming Chemical Compounds is available on the Chemistry Department web site.
