Print out the exercise and work through it following instructions and entering
results in appropriate spaces. You will need to complete the exercises and answer
the questions before taking the quiz. Working with a partner is OK on the exercises
but each student must take the quiz without help.
Each 20 question quiz may be taken twice with the highest grade recorded for
credit. Quizzes should be submitted as soon as possible after completing the lab
exercise while it is still fresh in your mind
Lab quizzes will be available on Laulima
one week before the due date. They will be accessible until the last day of class
but will be marked as overdue if late. This will not affect your grade, but could
influence it in borderline cases.

except for lab 1, which requires a report.
LAB EXERCISE TIME EXPECTATIONS
A 1 credit lab course takes more time than it might appear. When added to a 3
credit 'lecture' course it may seem like a lot of time. But it is equivalent to the
time you would spend in a classroom lab for the same 1 credit..
Each lab is designed to require up to six hours. That includes studying the learning
outcomes, becoming familiar with any background material before you begin, doing
the exercise, and taking the lab quizzes. Some labs may take longer if background
material needs review, or if it is completely new.
Do not wait until the last minute
to start the lab exercise.
If there are questions about ANY aspect of any lab, send e-mail to the instructor
(Laulima ) or ask for help from your classmates. You may not get help on the quiz
from anyone else. This would be a violation of academic honesty.
The grade for Lab 1 is based on the quality and content of the report.
The grade for labs 2 - 6 is based entirely on the lab quiz.
There is no enforced due date for a quiz, but they should be completed as soon
as possible after doing the exercise, before memories fade.
The final date for submission of all quizzes is the last day of class as published
in the schedule of courses and on the Laulima site. Severe penalties will be imposed
for the mandatory labs 1, 3, 5, 6 afer this date. Quizzes for labs 2 and 4 will not
be scored and will not count if not received on time.
The completion dates below will keep you on schedule. Trust me, you do not want
to fall behind and try to catch up later in the semester.
*Labs 1, 3, 5, 6
are mandatory, minimum requirements, and must be graded to get credit for the course,
however the lab grade is based on 300 point totals for all six labs. Labs 2-6 grades
are based on quiz scores, lab 1 grade is based on report.
