Lab Rules and Regulations Author: John M. Cimbala, Penn State University Latest revision: 10 January 2007 1. Lab Preparation and Precalculations ( Before the lab) Each lab contains an Introduction that provides background material for the lab to be performed that week. Each week, before lab class , students are expected to read the introduction; failure to do so wastes valuable class time. Each lab also contains a “Precalculations” section, with some questions and calculations related to the experiment to be performed. The Precalculations must be done before the lab, and the TA will collect the completed Precalculations for each student at the beginning of lab class . If a student fails to turn in the Precalculations at the beginning of class, he or she will receive a late penalty: o 10% off if turned in late, but before 5:00 p.m. on the due date. o 25% off if turned in late, but before 5:00 p.m. on the first school day after the due date. o 50% off if turned in late, but before 5:00 p.m. on the second school day after the due date. o No credit if turned in after two school days beyond the due date. The Precalculations do not have to be typed; however, students must write legibly . They need to fill in their name, section number, etc. on a printout of the Precalculations page, and then answer the questions there. Note that the Precalculations are to be done individually, by each student – not as a lab group , even though the lab report itself is written as a group. Students may think of the Precalculations as additional individual “homework” for the course. Precalculations are worth 20% of the lab report grade. The instructor or TA may use the Precalculations score to deduct points for any of the following:
