  • Laboratory Schedule Course Grading: Numerical grade on a 4.0 scale based on three components: Formal Lab Report, Oral Lab Presentation, and Practical Lab Exam. The individual component grades are based on a strait scale. To determine any one of the three grades, divide by two (Ex. say you receive a 5 on your lab presentation, your numerical grade would be a 5/2=2.5). To determine your final grade, add your three scores and divide by 6 (Ex. you get a 7 on your formal lab report, a 5 on your lab presentation, and a 5 on your proctical exam. Your final course grade is: (7+5+5)/6=2.83 which rounds up to a 3.0). Maximum grade for any one component is an 8. Final Exam: 3:00-5:00 on May 3, 2000 (Section 1) 10:00-12:00 on May 5, 2000 (Section 2) Laboratory Experiments: Instructions: 1) All students should check each experiment's listing after 12:00 Noon on the Monday prior to the experiment. 2) All students MUST bring a printed copy of each experiment to the appropriate laboratory session. 3) All lab policies, schedules, and experiments are provided below as downloadable PDF files.
