2 v. Bemmel 1 L ABORATORY E XERCISES 2.1 Description of Labs There will be four labs in the fall semester . These labs will be performed independent from class time. You will work in groups of your choice that are not larger than four members. These labs can be performed before and after school or during lunch. I will help to coordinate this for you. Below will be deadlines for the submission of the formal report for each lab experience. Remember you are required to submit TWO copies of your papers . One will be returned and the other kept on file. In addition, you must supply a single sheet of paper detailing the efforts of each person in the group and it must include the signatures of all members. Due to bandwidth restrictions and formatting dramas, no electronic submissions will be accepted. Late submissions are NOT acceptable without proof of insurmountable difficulties for all 4 members of the group. Prevent this by having the report stored on more than one computer or on a web page and prepared a few days in advance. The details will of the experiments and the project will be made clear when this document is released to the class on the first day of school. Full use of your graphing calculator, Maple, Excel and possibly some programming will be necessary to complete some of the analysis required for these labs. Here is your chance to be a scientist! You are expected to design the procedures and analysis for each experiment. You will be marked on how well your first conform to the requirements of form and the basic academic constraints of the experiment and then on how you handle the more subtle and technical aspects. This is a measure of your scientific acumen and creativity. Yes, you can do more, but does it really contribute to the experiment? You need to weigh all of this very carefully. You will not have time to waste in your laboratory experience in university (or professional life) so find ways to check that you are on the right track before you waste a lot of time. 2.4 Marking Rubric On the next page is a copy of the rubric that will be used to grade your formal lab reports. Comments from Mr. van Bemmel will be copiously written on the report and a short discussion will be had with each group when the report is returned. This may have to happen outside of class depending on our schedule. Students who wish further input should make an appointment with Mr. van Bemmel at a time of mutual convenience.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
