A large part of the lab grade is derived from lab points.
Lab points are earned from activities or assignments assigned throughout the semester.
For Each Lab Period
- 1 lab point for coming on time (within 5 minutes of period starting) and staying/working for 1¾ hours.
- 1 lab point for bringing your lab notebook
- Lab points for prelabs
Lab points are earned for answers to prelab questions. This comprises much of the overall lab points marks. Prelabs must be handed in before or at the beginning of your lab period on separate paper (not in your notebook, submit answers with your name, student number and lab section through the mail slot by the Physics Lab entrance). Attendance of the lab period is required to receive lab points for the prelab questions. You will find the prelab questions with each lab on the web.
Throughout the semester there will questions asked in the lab that will require a clicker response. Clicker response will be awarded an overall grade max of 5 lab points for the semester.
