- 2 weeks after the experiment date.
- The date of submission is counted by the date on which the hard copies of your reports are handed in to and signed by Dale Claude.
- Electronic copies of the reports must be sent to both Dale and instructor by email on the same day for verification.
- When submission on weekends, the date of submission of reports by email can be counted, however, the hardcopies of your reports must be handed in to Dale on the following Monday to avoid extra delay penalty.
- 7 “free” late hand-in days for the whole course
- Must indicate on your reports when use it to avoid late penalty.
Be prepared for:
Initiate the contact for the pre-lab help
with the demonstrators & the lab coordinator
During the experiments:
One student is required to hand in
In one group, you may label the 4 labs by A, B, C, and D in your own order.
Each member of the group should keep the same order.
