YOU MUST READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS: A. Assigned Reading ix-xiii and have the signed released form ready to hand in on the first day of class. B. Assigned Reading How to write a scientific Paper or Lab Report ,Exercise 1 and 2 (pp xv-18)


GRADING: Lecture: 60% Lab: 40% Quizzes - 40% Pre Lab Report/Post Lab Report 40% Practical 10% Technical 10% ATTENDANCE: Attendance to the lab are mandatory, any missed labs may be made up during the same week of the lab missed.
