If an absence is unexcused, the lab report that was due the day of the absence will have 10pts deducted per day late. Any student who knows about an excused absence in advance must meet with Dr. Hubbard at least one week prior to the event to discuss their options. If a student is going to be absent due to an event/circumstance that is known in advance, they must make arrangements to turn in their lab report on the original day that it is due. In the event that they do not, the lab report will have 10pts deducted per day late. Lab Check-Out Lab check-out will occur following each experiment this semester. Your TA will go through your assigned, communal drawer(s) to ensure that all of your glassware is present and undamaged. You and your partner are required to replace any missing or broken glassware prior to attending lab the following week. Any student who does not properly check-out of their lab drawer each week will have their registration account frozen until all missing items are replaced.
