GEOG1403F2010-KFK-LEELANAU Page | 3 Geography 1403 Biogeography of the Global Garden Lab Section Policies Fall 2010 Fill in the information in the table below during your first laboratory meeting. Section: Teaching Assistant: Office Location: Office Phone Number: Office Hours: Email: **All TA mailboxes are found in 414 Social Sciences Building** Purpose Labs are intended to supplement, reinforce, and emphasize the concepts presented in lecture. Most of the labs involve hands-on experience with computer modeling and the application of the principles and tools of scientific inquiry. They are intended to help teach you to think critically and analytically, searching for causes and relationships between elements of our environment. While these skills are critical to understanding our changing biosphere and the associate interacting elements, they are transferrable to nearly all aspects of your academic career and your daily life more generally. This laboratory policy is intended to provide for the fair, efficient, and consistent administration of the laboratory across all sections. Success in the labs depends on everyone’s cooperation and most of all, respect for one another. Materials Required for Lab We recommend that students acquire a USB flash drive (also called Jump Drive, Thumb Drive or various other products names). USB flash drives are sold at the U of M Bookstore or almost any store where electronics are sold. They come in various sizes from 32MB up to 2–3GB, but any of the smaller sizes are sufficient for this course. Think of your flash drive as an extension of your lab book – always bring it to your lab session in case you need to save files to work on later. Most of the labs will require the use of word processing, HTML, or spreadsheet software. You will likely want to copy any needed files from the laboratory server to your jump drive for the purposes of completing labs outside the regularly scheduled lab meeting time or for studying for laboratory exams. Many labs will use the Microsoft Office suite containing Excel, Word, and Powerpoint.
