The Laboratory is an integral portion of the course. A given experiment should be done on the week scheduled. All laboratory experiments have a pre-laboratory assignment that should be completed before the beginning of the laboratory session. All laboratory reports are due in a timely manner, due dates will be announced. If a laboratory is missed for a legitimate documented reason, a make up session may be scheduled for the student or an alternative assignment be made. The assignment for a missed laboratory varies. Excessive absence in the laboratory will enter into the course grade.

All laboratory experiments have pre-lab assignments. Check and do these pre-laboratory assignments before you come to the laboratory.
