Session 2 is the Investigation to answer a guiding question. Student groups will conduct the investigation, complete their analysis and prepare a whiteboard for oral presentation of their concluding argument. The class will then engage in an argumentation session. All students must remain until the end of the argumentation. The group argumentation is critical for writing the laboratory report. Session 3 is the Peer-review of the investigation lab report. All students will bring 4 typed copies of their individual lab report (Investigations 1, 2, and 4) with all three sections completed. The peer-review is double-blind meaning that neither authors or reviewers will be identified. To accomplish this all students will use the last 4-digits of their Banner ID to identify their report or review. The revised lab report will be submitted on Blackboard before the next laboratory session (see schedule-last page). Attendance Attendance is required at all laboratory sessions. As indicated by the weekly schedule, missing one laboratory session impacts students’ ability to participate in the following session. Students arriving more than 5 minutes late will not be allowed into the laboratory session and will have an UNEXCUSED absence (grade of ZERO) for that particular laboratory session. Absences a. Excused Absences Per the undergraduate catalog, an excused absence encompasses; a.) university sponsored activities, b.) extreme personal emergencies, c.) illness, d.) death in the immediate family, e.) religious obligations or f.) other activities deemed by the Dean of Students ( ) to warrant an excused absence. If the absence falls within categories “a” and “f”, a verification of the University Excused Absence issued by the Dean of Students office is required. In case of illness, it is recommended to visit the University Health Service and request at the time of the visit a dated note confirming that medical care has been received. The note issued by the University Health Service must be submitted to your instructor. You must contact your instructor and provide the proper documentation for your excused absence DURING THE WEEK IN WHICH THE MISSED EXPERIMENT IS PERFORMED. Late submission of the proper documentation will disqualify you for an excused absence . If a university field trip or athletic event conflicts with a laboratory meeting, you must provide your travel schedule to your instructor at the beginning of the semester so that arrangements for laboratory make- up can be made. Absences due to court appearances where student is not a defendant are also considered excused. b. Unexcused Absences Absences due to tardiness, dismissal for noncompliance with safety regulations (improper attire, refusal to wear safety goggles at all times in the laboratory work area, being impaired due to any type of intoxicant), dismissal for disruptive behavior and extended vacation are considered unexcused.

    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.
