Attendance Attendance in lab classes is important. Students can only miss a total of four (4) classes—lectures and labs in any combinations. Students who exceed this number will be dropped. The first week of class (Saturday) is important. Students who do not attend the first week of class will be dropped. Students should come to each lecture and lab to ensure success in this class.
Lab Notes We use Lab Notes for the lab. If you bought your textbook at the bookstore, they came bundled with the textbook. If you need Lab Notes, they are available online. http://legacy.alamo.edu/spc/acad/natsci/Documents/2401labnotesfall09.pdf You should bring your Lab Notes and textbook to lab each week.
Lab Classroom and Model Maintenance At the beginning and end of each lab class, the lab tables should be empty. Please put away the models in their correct places in the cabinets. Use the wooden sticks for pointing.
Testing There will be four (4) Lab Exams this semester. The test is divided into stations. There may be between 50 and 75 questions. The event is timed (two minutes per station). There are NO BONUS points allowed for the lab class and grades will not be curved. Each student will be allowed one (1) make-up exam for the entire semester. If you miss a lab exam, you must get an approval form from the instructor to take the make-up exam. Make-up exams will be given according to a schedule set by the proctor in Room 206. The exam must be taken before the next scheduled lab exam. After you complete the exam, you may leave. There will be no further lab class for that day.
