Physics I Labs
- Failing to attend labs will negatively affect your course grade and
evaluation. Labs are an important (and I hope fun) part of the
course. We will learn skills here that you won't get a chance to
practice in homework or discuss much in class.
- The lab participation portion of your evaluation will be based
almost exclusively on the degree with which you engage the material
and the level of cooperation with your lab partners. I'm not that
interested in "right" answers.
- Typical labs will be around two hours, but some may be
- Be prepared to go outdoors. We won't go out if it's really
really yucky, but we might go out in drizzle and cold.
- Lab work will not spawn a significant amount of work beyond the
two to three hours we spend together. There will be no lab reports.
I usually will ask you to complete a worksheet as part of the lab.
I will also conduct a very informal "exit interview" after you
complete the lab exercises to make sure that your group has a grasp
for the ideas covered.
