One form of academic dishonesty is plagiarism, “the use of an idea, phrase, or other material from a written or spoken source” without giving credit to the source from which it was taken. 1 Beginning students in chemistry do not always intuitively understand the subtle differences between academic honesty and dishonesty. In order to help you understand some of these differences and to avoid plagiarism, we have classified below, as academically honest or dishonest, some potential behaviors by students in chemistry lab. Sharing a hard (printed) copy or virtual (electronic) copy of your lab report with a friend is academically dishonest. Copying content from a hard (printed) copy or virtual (electronic) copy (file) of a friend’s lab report to your own report is plagiarism and qualifies as academic dishonesty. Using a friend’s lab report as guidance for writing your lab report is also plagiarism even if you change the words in a sentence, or the arrangement of sentences or topic order, because the work presented is not entirely your own. Presenting a friend’s data sheets, and/or data as your own is fabrication, a violation of the principles of academic honesty. Discussing with a friend how to do a calculation, before you write your own report , is consistent with the principles of academic honesty. Discussing answers to the questions on a lab report, before you write your own report , is acceptable. Before you begin work in CHM 132 Laboratory, you are required to submit to a Teaching Assistant the handwritten pledge shown below. Your signature indicates that you have read the information above and agree to behave in an ethical and academically honest manner. I affirm that I will not give, or accept, any unauthorized help in this laboratory course, and that all work I submit will be my own. (The TAs will give you a sheet on which you write the statement above, followed by your signature.) You also must write the following pledge, followed by your signature, on the first page of each laboratory report submitted during the semester. I affirm that I have not received any unauthorized help in preparing this laboratory report, and that all work is my own. (Your Signature follows the statement.) 1 , pages 1, 4 accessed January 31, 2017.

Chemistry 132 Lab Manual Page 11 Laboratory Safety Regulations 1. "Horseplay" is a major cause of accidents and will not be tolerated. Your laboratory instructor will ask you to leave the lab and assign you a grade of zero for that experiment if you persist in behavior that makes you a safety hazard to yourself or others. 2. In case of accident or injury, notify a lab instructor immediately. 3. Be familiar with the locations and use of fire extinguishers, fire blankets, fire exits, showers, eye wash, fountains, and first aid kits.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
