Experiments: Each student is expected to successfully complete all 10 experiments.
Lab Reports: Laboratory reports will consist of 3 parts: Pre-Lab Questions (5 pts),
experiment’s report sheets and post-lab questions (15 pts).
Pre-lab Questions: The questions preceding each experiment are to be answered before
coming to lab and submitted to the instructor at the beginning of each lab period.
Report sheets and Post-lab Questions: The report sheets, which include experimental
data and calculations as well as answers to the post-lab questions, should be submitted in
the beginning of the next lab period. All questions should be answered unless otherwise
indicated by your instructor.
Attendance: Each student is expected to attend and complete each scheduled laboratory.
Excused absences will be allowed due to illness and certain other mitigating
circumstances. In such cases, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the instructor and
make arrangements to make-up the missed lab. Additionally, it is the student’s
responsibility to ensure that the instructor is informed of his or her presence, so that he or
she will not be marked absent from the assigned laboratory.
