Academic Ethics / Cheating: Original work performed in good faith is assumed on all laboratories/exams/worksheets. University rules (Handbook, Vol. IV, Part 9, Chapter 1, Executive Order #61) define scientific and scholastic misconduct to include the following forms of inappropriate activities: Intentional misrepresentation of credentials Falsification of data Plagiarism Failure to adhere to this code of ethics will result in prosecution to the fullest extent (see http://www.washington.edu/students/handbook/conduct.html for specifics). In short, if you have not done something yourself, do not present it as original work. The data you record and report must be done by your own hand. This is relevant to all parts of your lab report, including the introduction, conclusion, and questions sections. It includes copying and pasting words and equations from previous labs of other students. Lab Safety: It is most important that you consider your own safety as well as that of others while you work in this lab. Goggles and a lab coat are required wear in the lab at all times! Shoes must be worn at all times (no sandals or open toed shoes) and no shorts or short skirts. You will be asked to leave the lab if you are not wearing appropriate clothing and eye protection and there are no exceptions to this rule. Safety precautions and waste handling procedures are outlined in the laboratory experiment write-ups. Also, you will be assessed a 5% penalty on your lab report grade for wearing lab gloves out of the lab. So please remember to take off your gloves BEFORE leaving the lab. Finally, if you have any questions regarding lab safety, please ask.
