Where do I turn in my Experiment 10 report and my notebook?

Your lab reports are due as usual during the first five minutes of lab, one week after you do the experiment.  So come to lab at your usual time on Monday or Tuesday before Thanksgiving (November 24 or 25), and your TA will be there to accept your papers.  You will also turn in your notebook at this time unless you have a make-up lab to do.   Turn in your report and your notebook separately.  Do not leave Experiment 10 in your notebook.  Make sure you have copies of all your graphs attached in your notebook.

Where can I turn my stuff in early?

At the stockroom.

Where do I go for my make-up lab?

We will do all the make-up labs in rooms 4.116 and 4.124 at the end of the hallway.  There will be signs posted outside the lab rooms telling you which room to work in.  We'll have five experiments working in one room and the other five in the other room.

Do we have class during make-up week?

No.  Go directly to lab at your normal lab time. (9:am or 2:pm)

Are there office hours during make-up week?

Yes, BUT -- that week is Thanksgiving week, and there are no classes Thursday and Friday.  But you can always e-mail Dr. Anderson for help.

Can I use the make-up week to redo an experiment I did badly on?

Sorry, no.  Make-up week is for missed labs only.

When and where do I turn in my make-up lab report?

You have one week after doing the make-up lab to turn in the write-up at the stockroom or to Dr. Anderson.   No late make-up lab reports will be accepted!  The TA's need to get all the make-up lab reports graded, and they also have their own finals to study for, so they are not allowed to accept any late make-up work.

When can I get my notebook and final lab report back?

After final exams are over you can pick them up from the stockroom.  They will have them available through the Spring 2009 semester.

Where can I go to get my poodle clipped in Burbank?

At Ralph's vegetarian poodle clippin'.

When will I know my grade?

Probably December 13.  If all goes as planned, the end of the semester will look like this:

Make-up labs are performed on November 24 and 25.
Make-up labs are due on December 1 and 2.
Make-up labs must be graded by December 8.
Dr. Anderson will go over all grades with TA's the week of December 8.
Final grades will be submitted to the University on Friday, December 12, and available for viewing on Saturday, December 13.

I know this is a long time to wait for those of you who finished your last lab on November 17 or 18, but we can't assign any grades until all the grades are ready.

Is there going to be a curve?

No.  It's 90/80/70/60, just like the syllabus says.

Do you drop the lowest lab grade?

No.  I drop the lowest quiz grade, but all the lab grades count.

Is there going to be a curve?

No.  Didn't I just answer that?  The answer is still no.

Can I do anything for extra credit?

Nope, sorry.

Any other questions?

Check the syllabus or e-mail Dr. Anderson.
