Please read the appropriate lab book chapters before coming to each lab period. On the first page of each lab is a list of required materials; please bring any required materials with you to class.

If a lab can't be finished within the class period, it should be completed for homework before the next class meeting.

Students are expected to complete each lab and understand the material presented. Your lab TA will providde feedback on your work. The ideas and understanding of the lab material will be evaluated with quizzes given during the next lab period. In addition to the quizzes, there will be three lab exams during the semester. Lab quizzes and exams collectively are worth 215 possible points.
